Smashing Villa

  • 4 of 5

Loved this villa, very spacious, loads of terraces and places to sit round the HUGE pool, which was beautifully warmed by the sun. The refurbed bathroom was a lovely surprise. Happy to clean before we left but cleaning products please 😎

All in all a lovely stay, would definitely love to come back.

Nice villa and stay

  • 4 of 5

Very nice villa which was situated well to get every where. Very close to beach but steep climb back.

Villa had everything you would need but do think it's time for new oven. Grill worked but not oven didn't spoil holiday though.

Found it odd that you get clean bedding but it's left for you to change beds and there's no cleaning done while your there and you are asked to leave it clean. Feel there should be a least cleaning products there to do this. Villa does need a good sweep every where also.

Apart from these small things we would stay again.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We (five adults and one child) stayed at this great villa in September 2016 and had a fantastic time!

The outside space really sets this villa apart from others we've stayed at. The pool is HUGE! My three year old nephew loved it, and the outside space is very child friendly with locking gates. The pool is a complete sun trap as well.

The villa itself has everything you would expect/need, it is very clean and has great character.

The villa is located very centrally in Calan Porter (we've stayed at five villas now and this is by far the best location) with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. The appeal of Calan Porter is that car hire isn't necessary as everything is within walking distance.

I would recommend this villa and definitely stay here again.

Excellent once again

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second stay in this property having first stayed there in 2010. the villa and its location are fantastic and since our first stay back in 2010 Sue and Nigel have made some excellent improvements that add to the overall experience.

the shaded pagoda that they have put up near the pool in particularly is a godsend and trust me you will use it the villa is in a sun spot and it can get VERY hot

the villa is kept very clean and is quite modern new windows and improved electrics help to make things better but you still get to keep that "villa" feel that is ever so relaxing and laid back

all 3 bedrooms are en suite and very comfortable with plenty of storage space in each and ceiling fans to keep you cool. air conditioning would be nice but that didnt detract from our stay.


the front room is large spacious and extremely comfortable with a large flat screen tv and sattelite for when you are relaxing at night. WI-FI would have been great but i believe Sue and Nigel are sorting this for next year,

The thing we liked most about this villa was its location it is central to EVERYTHING and if eating out i would highly recommend Peto's and the Samoa. Very cheap and plentiful. if its the beach you want it is just a very short stroll down the hill behind the Villa.

Would i recommend this Villa to our friends and family?? of course we would we have already.

Would we stay in this villa for a 3rd time?? YES we are already thinking about going again next year.

One final point about the owners Sue and Nigel you can tell they are very proud of their villa and they cannot do enough to ensure your stay there is perfect and we cant thank them enough for everything they did for us

Magical holiday!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic 2 week holiday in Sue & Nigel's beautiful villa! I took my son, daughter-in-law and my 5 month old grandson on holiday with me to have a special bonding time with Jacob, as I don't live near them to see him regularly. it seemed a huge thing to do to take a new baby to a foreign & hot country but Sue reassured me how easy it would be and it was! The villa was immaculate and in a brilliant location a few minutes walk to a magnificent little cove and within a few minutes walk to some really good restaurants, particularly the true Menorcan ones. The local well-stocked supermarket was a 3 minute walk away in the lovely village. The location was clean, dust & insect-free, quiet & peaceful. The pool was a delight and help was at hand from an excellent management team should any problems arise with the villa. The really good quality , & comfortable outside furniture was in abundance and there was always a shady space for the baby. We had an unforgettable & memorable 2 weeks and would definitely go back to Sue & Nigel's villa.

Car: not necessary


The beach is within easy walking distance (5 minutes) from the villa, but takes a little longer on the return journey as it is uphill. Cala'n Porter has one of the best beaches in Menorca. A lovely sheltered sandy beach, it has safe bathing for all the family. Sun beds, umbrellas and pedalos can be hired. There is a large free car park, Bar meals, snacks and drinks are available on the beach. A lifeguard is in attendance during the holiday season.


Mahon airport is about 15 minutes drive from the villa, local taxis charge about 20 euros from the airport to the villa. The capital Mahon is 20 minutes from the villa. Car hire is available at the airport or in the village but not essential. Buses run about once an hour into Mahon.

Further Details:

Local shops, supermarkets (delivery service available), bars, restaurants, money exchange and car hire, taxi rank, bank chemist, hairdresser are all within a 5 minute walk. Many of the bars offer entertainment in the evenings. There is a regular bus service from Cala'n Porter to Mahon and at the bus station in Mahon buses are available for the rest of the island.
