About Carlo

I work in the public health care. As soon as possible, I love to spend some days in that lovely island, a pearl in the Mediterranean sea.

Carlo purchased this villa in 2007

Why Carlo chose Cala en Porter

I bought a property in Menorca because I love it, her stone walls, her sandy bays, her warm climate.

If my guests appreciate and enjoy their holiday in my villa, it will be a great pleasure for me

Guestbook comments from the manager

September 2009. Thank you so much for letting us stay in the villa. We had a lovely week and the villa is perfect in every way. We felt is was a home away from home and we would definitely stay there again next year if it is still available to rent. The bathrooms were very clean and had really nice showers. The kitchen had everything and more that we needed for cooking and the English TV was a real plus point when we wanted to sit in on a night and relax. Many, many thanks, Ian C.



August 2010. Sadly for us, we have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Menorca to the much colder and wetter weather of the UK. We very much enjoyed your excellent villa and thank you for the welcome note and drinks, very much appreciated. We would certainly be interested in returning next year so if you would like to let me know availability and pricing, that would be appreciated. Mike H.

Fantastic villa, perfect location, beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks staying at Villa La Serena at the end of August 2017. Its location is great - 15 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes walk to the beach, 5 minutes walk to the town's restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The villa itself is the best equipped I have ever stayed at the kitchen had everything you would ever need, the appliances were very clean and felt like new including the cookware even the bbq was spotless. We could tell the owner had put a lot of thought into what guests required. The pool was extensively cleaned twice a week (and early morning so it did not interrupt our day). It felt spacious with lots of storage in the bedrooms and two full bathrooms was a luxury. The outside space had the sun all day and the sunset was just stunning. I loved the fact it is not overlooked and is extremely private. From the pool and terrace you have views of the sea and hill tops as the name suggestion it was serene. The owner, Carlo, and his local agent were extremely responsive and helpful. We had all the information we could want from how to first access the property and also information on Menorca. I am sure we will return soon and I have already recommended this villa to family and friends.

Beautiful Villa, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this fantastic villa. Bedrooms had loads of storage space, bathrooms were very clean and fresh, and the kitchen was the best equipped that we have ever come across - there was every utensil you would ever need,and then some!!

Outside is very spacious with a fantastic pool and a large covered veranda where we spent many lovely evenings eating and watching the sun go down over a glass or two of wine.

Location wise it was ideal - quiet and peaceful but only a 5 minute walk from the local bars, restaurants and two excellent supermarkets.

Carlo was extremely approachable and helpful throughout the booking process and provided us with very clear information regarding access to the property.

Would absolutely recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful island.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Cala en Porter many times but this is the best villa yet. It is spacious and well decorated inside, clean and very well maintained. The swimming pool is larger than average and as the villa is South facing, you get the sun all day long. There are ample facilities to eat either inside or outside (where we ate almost every meal). Although obscured by rooftops and trees, you could see the sea and had a reasonably good view of the cliffs alongside the beach. Communication with Carlo, the owner, was excellent and he gave clear instructions on how to find and access the villa. I highly recommend this villa and certainly plan to book again, if possible, when I return to Menorca again.

Excellent villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing two week stay in Carlos' lovely villa. Wonderful outside space which got the sun all day and a lovely evening sunset view. Just minutes walk to main centre which was quiet in May. The villa was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Great pool with toys for the kids to play with, and not too cold for May/June. The photos do not do the villa justice it was much better in person and spotlessly clean. I would definitely recommend for familes and couples. Will go back someday (hopefully).
