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.

Great Family Villa

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Sue and Nigel. The villa was everything we expected and more. Bathroom for every bedroom, ceiling fans were a blessing as it was in the high 30's. Fantastic pool and plenty of shade or sun as required. Great location and Cala en Porter itself was a lovely place to stay and venture out from. Supermarkets were well stocked, plenty of bars / restaurants and the beach was not as crowded as some of the others we visited. Just perfect!

Myself and family stayed at this lovely villa from 17 june 2015 for 1week and would recommend anyone who is looking for a relaxing home from home villa that is well equipped and in a nice quiet area but yet only 5 minutes walk to the resort centre and is only 3 minute walk to the nearest supermarket to try it .We have been villa holidaying for several years now and this is by far the most child friendly one we have stayed in , are three children had a great time using the pool area which is bigger than most villas we have stayed in .

All in all a great villa in a lovely location for a family holiday and we look forward to returning .

Hi Nigel and sue,

Just a quick note to say we had an absolute fantastic time at your villa. This was our 3rd visit and it was outstanding as always. The villa has everything we needed, the pool was probably the largest in calan porter and is in the sun all day, which is great. On the flip side, there is now plenty of shaded area around the pool which is very handy. You're outdoor furniture is second to none; accommodating for every need. One of the things we personally found great was that the villa is very peaceful and quiet but yet only a 5 minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to the bars and restaurant, dependent on whether you turn left or right out of the villa. We could honestly want for nothing. I would most certainly recommend this villa to anyone. As always, a perfect holiday and we are very much looking forward to staying here again. Thank you very much
