About the property

Two-bedroom apartment close to wide soft sandy beach. Air-con in both bedrooms.

It's just a five-minute lazy stroll to Son Parc's large soft sandy beach with shallow waters, ideal for toddlers, extending several metres into the sea. 2018 will be the 16th consecutive year guests will have enjoyed holidaying at Els Vents 8. FREE Wi-Fi Broadband internet is accessed via a dedicated router. The DVD player (plays Region 2 DVDs). There is a flat-screen colour TV through which you can watch DVDs. There is also a supplied HDMI cable for connecting your laptop to the TV. There is a well-equippled galley kitchen, a living area with two comfortable sofas and dining table, and a bathroom with bath, w/basin, shower & WC. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and air-conditioning. There is a plumbed-in washing machine, iron, ironing board, airer / washing line, fridge/freezer and two portable fans. Two communal kidney-shaped swimming pools are right outside the entrance door. The large soft sandy beach is just a five-minute stroll from the apartment. The bay at Son Parc is ideal for families as the sea is shallow for several metres into the sea, which makes it ideal for toddlers who wish to paddle. Shops and restaurants are all within a five-minute stroll of the apartment and so car hire is not essential. There is a reliable bus service to Mahon and neighbouring Fornells. All amenities are within walking distance of the apartment. However, a car is recommended if you wish to explore more of this beautiful island.

About Nigel McPheat

Hello. My name is Nigel and I live in Bedfordshire (UK) with my wife Linda who I've been married to since 1980. Our two daughters, Claire (born in 1984) and Naomi (born in 1987) are both married...Claire to Rob and Naomi to Martin. Both daughters have flown the nest and we're fortunate enough to now have two grandchildren, twins Joel and Rose, who were born to Claire & Rob in June 2015. Claire is now a full-time mum in Devon. Naomi is a primary school teacher in West Sussex.

Nigel McPheat purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Nigel McPheat chose Minorca (Menorca)

We purchased Els Vents, 8 in 2002 after having holidayed in Menorca several times previously. We like the resort of Son Parc because of its natural beauty, soft sandy beach and sheltered bay. The Els Vents apartment complex is rarely busy which means the two kidney-shaped pools are often empty. Son Parc, located midway along the north coast of Menorca, is an ideal base for exploring the whole island. The south-coast being only 9 miles away and the towns of Mahon (to the east) and Ciutadella (to the west) both less than 15 miles away. The 18-hole golf course at Son Parc is just a five-minute drive from the apartment or a twenty-minute stroll. There are a handful of bars/restaurants locally and many more dotted around the island which are well worth a visit.

What makes this apartment unique

Just a two-minute stroll from the apartment takes you to steps that lead down to the beach at Son Parc. Guests have described the beach as "perfect", "ideal", "superb" and "fantastic".

Within just a few paces of the entrance door, are two kidney shaped communal pools.

The apartment is only a 45-minute drive away from any place on the island. The patio is east/south facing and so gets the sun from dawn until mid-afternoon.

2018 will be the 16th consecutive year that holidaymakers have stayed at Els Vents 8 in Son Parc, Menorca.

Lovely appartment very quiet and conveniently located in between both big towns.

  • 4 of 5

Great well furnished and comfortable plenty of extras available for use ie beach chairs, mats etc. Lovely patio and two pools literally outside the front door. Was very quiet in the resort so perhaps not great if you want more action but greatt for walking and chilling out.

A great apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was great, clean and tidy and had everything that was needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The location was ideal to explore this lovely island by car. It was really peaceful and so lovely to be able to open the door and have a choice of two swimming pools within just a few feet. The owner was great and went out of his way to make the booking and our stay as easy and hassle free as possible. Thanks Nigel

Un paraíso en Menorca

  • 5 of 5

Ha sido maravillosa nuestra estancia de 8 días en Els Vents 8. El apartamento es precioso, no le falta el mínimo detalle. La piscina espectacular, sobre todo de noche toda iluminada. Al salir del apartamento ya se ve la cala, Arenal de Son Saura, una playita tranquila y familiar. Todo ha resultado perfecto. Volveremos, sin duda, y ya lo estamos recomendando a nuestros familiares y amigos.

Fabulous resort and apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at El Vents before and were extremely happy to return. We love the resort and the choice of two pools at the apartment. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves and enjoyed relaxing and playing around the pool. The apartment is ideally situated to the beach, only a couple of minutes walk and you are on the soft sand. The sea was warm and very shallow, ideal for little children who want to play in the sea and stay safe. The apartment was very clean and tidy on arrival and is well equipped. The booking process was easy to follow and the owner very helpful. We hopefully will return.
