About Lucy McGibbon

Over the last 30 years of our married life together we have travelled the world. It is important to us when we do travel we engage with the local people rather then stay in complete hotel environment. We love to get to know the place we are visiting and the people who live there. We live in England and work very hard so now when we take a break it is important we can settle in straight away to make the most of our time off. Ten years ago we purchased our beautiful villa so now when ever we go away we settle in immediately in the relaxing environment of S'Algar.

Lucy McGibbon purchased this villa in 2008

Why Lucy McGibbon chose Minorca (Menorca)

We fell in love with this villa the minute we saw it. Having been built originally as a family home. That family had 7 children so space was part of the criteria when it was designed. We love S'Algar because although it is only 15 mins drive from the airport and Mahon harbour,It is not on a main route and is nestled in its own little bay.

When we stand on the huge roof terrace we have 210 degrees of sea view from beyond the S'Algar light house to the Mahon harbour. It feels like you are on the bow of a ship! We are 5 mins walk along the coastal path to S'Algar village centre and all its amenities.

What makes this villa unique

This property is positioned high on the cliffs on a double plot so has a large garden and an enormous new kidney shaped pool with magnificent views overlooking the sea. S'Algar its self is a very clean and tidy village and our teenagers love to walk to the bars and restaurants that it offers. We are only 15 mins drive from Mahon harbour life so can always have a night out and easily catch a taxi home. S'Algar runs a little town train so you can ride back up to the villa after dinner if you don't want to walk. It is a quiet relaxing area that is mainly inhabited by people who live there most of the time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed for a week and had a wonderful relaxing time, everything was brilliant and nothing hadn't been thought of. The views over the Med are fantastic and the sunrise over the sea is amazing! A really well appointed villa. - Susie.

A well organised, well stocked villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This villa was really comfortable for two families with teenage children. There was plenty of space both around the pool and in the villa. We loved the three fridges and plentiful supply of crockery, glasses, sun beds with cushions, towels, tables and chairs. The roof top terrace provided a fabulous location for early evening drinks. We enjoyed using the paella pan and barbecue and the ever changing view as boats and ships enter and leave Mahon harbour was stunning.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fortnight holiday staying at Bini Loli a group of ten all ages. What a lovely holiday home well maintained and everything you need. Lovely location with a small village with restaurants but not far away more beaches and places to visit. This has been the best holiday home we have stayed at so would recommend the villa.

Beautiful villa with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time at Bini Loli, it is a beautiful spot and the view is amazing. There is so much room, we are a family of four, we had planned on having another family with us and there would have been plenty of space for a large group. The set-up with the gate on the terrace to the pool worked perfectly for us with two young children. The back door opens into the garden which leads round to the pool, we kept this open with the gate locked, so allowed a breeze through the house but no access. The pool is great, Roman steps for the children to splash around on and big enough for the adults to have a proper swim. We had lovely walks down the hill to S'Algar enjoying the view and then caught the road train back which was the children's highlight! I'm sure we will be back.

Owner's Response: Security is one of the excellent aspects in the villa. Just by locking the gates and leaving all the doors open there's a wonderful breeze through the villa. We love to sit on the steps of the pool looking out to sea. Thank you for your wonderful feedback. Lucy

Amazing view overlooking the sea

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, perfectly maintained - loads of space for 10 of us - three generations. Our favourite place was to sit out in the alfresco dining area overlooking the sea.

Great swimming pool (enough space to swim properly), English TV with SkySports and Wi-Fi kept everyone happy. We've already recommended to friends.

Things to do - scuba diving at the harbour. There are a few local restaurants and a couple of supermarkets, but it is quiet. There aren't any beaches in S'Algar, but it is possible to swim from the harbour, and there is a beautiful cove about 20 minutes walk through woodland - worth the walk. For us with hectic lifestyles, it was perfect.

Mahon/Airport both 20Euro taxi rides. Supermarket probably about 10, so you could manage without a car. We also took the bus into Mahon which was easy, but they don't run late.

Looking forward to returning.

5 Star +++++++ Villa

Fabulous villa with most incredible views. Totally breathtaking. Very child friendly and equipped to the max. All the rooms were clean and tidy and decorated beautifully.

A real home from home but with the luxury factor added in!

We will definitely be returning.

Great holiday base!

  • 4 of 5

Bini Loli is a beautiful villa. The views are stunning, the location great - a short walk to a couple of restaurants and a mini market, a short drive to a big supermarket and Mahon, making it a great place from which to explore the island. The villa is really clean and well equipped. One of the bathrooms and the kitchen are a bit old fashioned in decor, but who cares - everything works and we barbecued or ate out most nights anyway! The people who look after Bini Loli are very friendly and helpful, maintaining the villa, the huge garden and the pool to a high standard. I would recommend this place to anybody and everybody (unless you need disabled access)!
