Overview

About the property

Villa in Calan Porter, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Ten Minutes Walking From Property To Village Centre

This traditional Menorcan villa was built in 1970 and holds some lovely Spanish features as well as being modernized over the last couple of years it still offers a great base for Family & Couples wishing to chillax & enjoy the best that Menorca offers during the Summer Months. The private pool & BBQ area are a delight to enjoy during those sunny days and balmy nights under the Menorcan Stars. Although an older style property with character our pricing reflects this in the costing and for 2016 we have modernised and added a new Shower Room facility to the Double Ensuite Bedroom.

About Owner

Having lived in Menorca for the past 15 years and settled with my partner we have enjoyed the Menorcan life style and relaxed ambience.

Our knowledge of the Island is vast and we can offer lots of info on beaches, restaurants, sightseeing plus having been holidaying here since 1976 and seeing the changes that the island has gone through making it a fantastic destination for all parties.

Owner purchased this villa in 1976

Why Owner chose Minorca (Menorca)

This property has been in the family since 1970 and was one of the original first built properties within Calan Porter and in the early days things were very different the nearest phone box was 3 miles away & the nearest village was 5km away to buy provisions but over 40 years later the resort still has character and something that draws people back year after year and well now phone boxes & shops are only 2 minutes away !!!

The villa is just outside the main village only 10 mins away but nice enough not to hear loud noise just the crickets in the night air can be heard. Anybody looking for a knees up or loud brash resort then Menorca is NOT for you head straight to Ibiza..But if it's relaxation, sunshine & great people this is the Island to be having some fun.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Casa Blanca offers a great holiday base for at least four couples or a family of eight where great facilities & beach can be located in Calan Porter. Benefits of Villa Casa Blanca are that if you do not wish to hire a car then the resort has enough to offer a two week holiday with a selection of bars, restaurants plus the resort is very safe for children & teenagers that like to explore whilst there away with families or friends. Lastly entertainment is offered free in most bars and adds as a bonus to any holiday with live shows at Sa Paissa Restaurant or Quiz nights at the Village Pub what ever takes your fancy Calan Porter can offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself & family enjoyed a great 10 day stay at this delightful four bedroomed private villa and although just a 10 minute walk to the village its setting was in a quiet area which we enjoyed.



Although an older style villa it had been modernized with a great new bathroom off our en suite bedroom plus WIFI was a bonus with UK tv so the kids were happy plus the outside patio & pool was sparkling.



Speaking to the Villa Management they did say next year the property would be getting Air Conditioning which would be a bonus as all of our party would love to come back again and relax at this lovely villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review on our property We are so pleased you had a relaxing time whilst in Menorca recently Regarding British TV channels unfortunately Sky have moved there satellite in the last 18 months and where European Countries have had free usage with this network we no longer in Spain, Italy , Greece have a strong signal to receive the British Channels. Therefore lots of properties now offer Freeview Satellite channels giving access to English Channels but not BBC OR ITV If circumstances change we will revert back but at present this is all we can offer at Villa Casa Blanca. Thank you for your noted comments

Family holiday 2014

  • 4 of 5

A lovely villa with a 10 minute walking distance of shops, bars etc. The main problem with this villa is tha fact it has no air conditioning, it has fans but with the heat they are inadequate enough for a good nights sleep. If you have a problem the maintainance crew are first class

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Calan Porter Beach 5 minutes drive by car (Coved Bay).

Son Bou Beach 20 minutes drive by car (Long & Sandy).

Most beaches on the South Coast are the best as on the North Coast of The Island the beaches can be rocky & shingled.

Travel:

Please note Menorca's airport is called Mahon and is serviced during the summer months from all major UK, Northern Irish & Eire based airports offering direct flights in under or just over 2 hours.

When booking flights please note that most flights are daytime/afternoon services and that the property is available after 2.00pm on your day of arrival and on the last day vacation is no later than 10.00am, therefore we advise that you consider the best timings to suit your needs.

Distances:

Mahon Capital offering Shops, Bars, Markets & Port area.

Alaior Night Market on Weds during June to Sept.

Mercadal great town to wander & see Monte Toro Mountain.

All of the above by car can be reached in under 30 minutes.

Further Details:

Although Calan Porter offers great facilities having a car will get you to some lovely beaches & quaint Menorcan towns that offer culture & a laid back feel which is typical of the Menorcan way of life. We also recommend Restaurant & Brasserie & Bar Dos Pablos in Calan Porter a delightful family run restaurant situated in the heart of the village.

Plus if you fancy a fab cocktail, pre dinner or leisurely drink then head along to Bar Olivers where everynight your host Paul will look after your orders on the terrace watching the sun go down !!!
