About the property

Front line apartment in Playas de Fornells, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Close to all Amenities. Convenient for Beach. New to the Rental Market from 2011

In a pretty, well-maintained garden setting, our two bedroom apartment enjoys a tranquil, top floor position, accessed by its own single flight of external steps. The bedrooms overlook the gardens and water features, whilst the generously proportioned kitchen/dining/lounge area opens out onto a south-west facing balcony, which affords a superb view and is great for alfresco meals and leisurely drinks. The safe, sandy beach is a mere 5-10 minute stroll away. Several good restaurants, bars and supermarkets open during the holiday season, all within easy walking distance.

About Roger and Heather Hall

On our very first visit to Menorca in 1988 we fell in love with the island and, more especially, Playas de Fornells. From the excitement of seeing the chalk marks as the hillside was being excavated, to the eventual completion of the property in 1989, and the 22 years of being able to escape from the rat race to our wonderful bolthole - there has never been such a positive outcome to an impulse buy!

Now, with the relative freedom of retirement, we have bought a second property to give us more space to entertain friends and family. In between their visits we are inviting you to stay in our home and experience this lovely resort.

Roger and Heather Hall purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Roger and Heather Hall chose Es Mercadal

The north coast of Menorca is much less 'touristy' and commercialised than the south and we particularly love the rural aspect behind the beach - not a hotel in sight - and now even more protected as the Menorquins go all out to safeguard their beautiful island from over development.

What makes this apartment unique

The ever changing view from our balcony can keep us entertained for hours. Tramontana winds or gentle breezes, mountainous seas or calm mill pond, there is always plenty to see; kite and wind surfers zipping across the bay, luxury yachts lazily anchored, the occasional seaplane skimming the surface, water birds diving for fish, fishing boats dragging their nets - and, at the end of the day, maybe a glorious sunset and a stroll to our favourite (and excellent) restaurant for a late dinner! What a life!

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described with wonderful views across the water which were lovely to wake up to each morning. The owners were very helpful if providing information and the property was lovely and clean. We hired a car but everything you need is very close at hand (supermarket, beach, bars and restaurants) so you coukld manage without. We would love to return.

Best Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a Holiday. Upon arrival we where stunned with the view from this apartment the pictures cannot do it justice. The apartment was so clean and even left a few snorkels for us which we used for the first time....great fun. The surroundings are all well maintained and views from this area are fantastic. Its quite and unspoilt with a local shop to pick up groceries and good places to eat .I would highly recommend this apartment and miss those sunny nights on the balcony looking across the bay and the late evenings walks..... thank you for a holiday to remember ,we will be back !

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute booking for us and what a find! The description of the apartment is totally accurate and the accompanying photographs exactly as it is. The response from our enquiry from Heather was both very informative via 'e' mail and phone--very friendly and passionate about Menorca.

This was our first visit to the Island and we fell in love with it! The apartment had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The location was perfect for us--in a very attractive urbanistaion and the views from the balcony--fantastic! We have already made enquiries to return next year and would thouroughly recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing stay

Peaceful, relaxing and interesting

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely with a wonderful view of the small cove. The owners were very helpful and friendly but did not get in your way. Everything in the apartment worked and the bed was very comfortable. The facilitates near-by included a very good bar and places to eat. It was very peaceful. I would recommend the apartment and the location to people who wanted a restful time.

A Great Island..A Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Menorca and we were very impressed with just about all aspects of the island. The Menorcans are to be commended for putting great efforts into limiting mass tourism and preserving their beautiful island environment. We cycled, kayaked and walked and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This was enhanced by this excellent apartment in Playas de Fornells. Friendly and fuss free booking and arrival arrangements by Heather got things off to a good start and we were delighted with the apartment. Clean & well equipped and tremendous views from the balcony. Having seen most corners of the island, there is no doubt this apartment is in the most scenic and most quiet area. The accomodation complex in the area is quite extensive but tastefully constructed and pleasing. Thoroughly recommended and we plan to return. Enjoy!
