About Mr B Dodds

Having holidayed on the island for many years as our children have grown up i find it the most relaxing and tranquil place. I find the island very unspoiled and so wonderful for families. The people are very friendly and I feel very safe here. Owning a property here and having close friends who live on the island makes this a special location for me and my family.

Location

Coast/Beach:

The villa is very close to the front line with sea views. Binibeca beach is 10min walk away but the private path next to the property takes you to a rocky cove which is a popular location for the locals at weekends for relaxing, diving and fishing.

Travel:

Mahon airport is 10-15minutes from the villa. Although a car is recommended it is not essential as their are plenty of taxis. The villa is in an ideal spot for the local bus service to Mahon town and also the 'novelty' train that takes you to Punta Prima is very close by and available in the summer months.

Distances:

Binibeca Vell village is a 10 minute walk, it is a beautiful typical Spanish fishing village with small windy streets and white washed buildings. Very picturesque.

Further Details:

Although Menorca is a quiet location, you can hire a car or take a cab or bus to visit the cheese and leather factories, aqua park, one of the many local markets around the island, S'Albufera nature reserve, El Toro church, Cova d'en Xoroi (this is a night club built into the rocks and an excellent trip in the day for the views, or the evening for the dancing. During your visit to Menorca you may find a fiesta is taking place with Spanish horses and dancing.

Excellent value for money Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed in Villa Elbarco and I must reiterate that this villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

We used the outside facilities (pool and terrace) much more than on our last visit and it was very relaxing and lovely to dip in and out or the pool to cool off. I would recommend a car if staying here as Binibecca does have limited restaurants, there is a greater choice within a 10-15 minute drive away for example Punta Prima and

EsCastell. That said if you choose to do your own cooking the villa is well equipped and the outside BBQ is great. Probably one of the best value for money Villas available in this area and I would recommend it highly

Relaxing home from home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a young couple in late 30’ and we stayed at the villa for 1 week from 7th-14th October,we got a taxi from the airport which was easy as there were plenty waiting outside,the driver said it would cost approx 23 Euro and when we arrived at the villa that was the cost.

When we opened the gates and walked down the drive we found the villa to exceed our expectations, with a lovely pool area ,covered seating area and bbq.

Inside the villa,there is a lovely seating area that over looks the pool,also a separate lounge,and a small but well equipped kitchen.The master bedroom has a patio door over looking the pool and an en-suite shower room,there is also a family bathroom with bath and shower over the bath which came in handy when we were both getting ready to go out.

The location of the villa is in a prime location for beaches ,bars and restaurants,turn left out of the villa gates and a 5 minute walk you have the fishing village of Binibeca Vell with lots of bars and restaurants to choose from,our favourites were B.B. cocktail bar and Es Furat bar and restaurant,and there is a beach about a 15-20 minute walk away.Turn right out of the villa and within 2 minute walk you have a supermarket,2 bars and a small clothes/souvenir shop,a further 5 minute walk and you have the beach at Binibeca Nou which has sun beds and parsols for hire,there is also a beach bar with great sea views.

For our return to the airport my husband booked our taxi through their website (Radio Taxis) centraldetaxiscv@gmail.com, the taxi arrived on time and was the same price as our arrival.

The only niggles ew encountered were the light from the street light outside the mater bedroom window was so bright it shone through the blind, and the pool filter system was quite loud when relaxing on the sun loungers by the pool.

The overall booking process with the owners was very smooth,efficient and we had good communications with the owners and these small niggles will not hinder us booking a return visit soon.

The villa is lovely from the outside the pool area really nice comfortable sunbeds. I think that the inside on my opinion could do with a little updating, the main bedroom the patio doors are very hard to open the double glazing you cant see out of the windows as the seals are gone and the en suite is a little tired, but that is a minor issue as overall everything is there that you need for a self catering holiday and the owner Brian is always willing to help.

Perfect Location (especially if you don't want to hire a car!)

  • 4 of 5

We spent a fortnight at Villa Elbarco from end July 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa itself is clean, comfortable and cool at night, thanks to the air conditioning in the bedrooms. We were outdoors for most of the days enjoying the pool and chilling. We were sorry that there wasn't a sea view and we were unable to access the rooftop terrace. That would be have been a great asset to the villa! The location was fabulous with restaurants just 3/5 minutes walk depending on what way you turned when leaving the property. The bus stop to Mahon is a 3 minute walk, which is great for a day trip and the little village of Binibeca Vell is just up the road and so pretty. The island at that time of year is very busy and we found hiring a taxi a problem. However, Samantha, who looks after the villa for the owners was on hand to help with ordering a taxi back to the airport, for which we were extremely grateful! All in all, we had a wonderful stay and came home feeling relaxed (for a day or two at least!)

A week of total relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to do nothing at all . . . this is the place to do it!

We wanted a week of reading books in the sun - and rolling into the pool when the sun got too much.

We cooked in or barbequed when we could be bothered - or ate at the nearby and excellent Bini Inn when we couldn't.

A small beach is five minutes walk to your right . . . and the village with adequate supermarket and a few restaurants is five minutes to your left.

We didn't even bother hiring a car - we took a local bus to Mahon from a stop just 50 yards away.

The pay-as-you-go bedroom air con worked well - not too expensive.

But some air-con in the kitchen would have helped - we might have cooked a bit more!

It's suitable for a family or maybe four adults sharing.

But for a couple on their own who just wanted to relax - like we were - it was perfect.

Happy to recommend and award five stars.

Location in Binibeca is great for the main beach or the village and local area.

  • 5 of 5

As a couple the villa was ideal for us. The layout is just right and the outside area including the pool was perfect for us. With superb weather and the location of the villa we had a very relaxing fortnight, but were able to travel without any problems with our hire car which was parked outside the villa. The villa is lovely with everything available inc. beach umbrella etc. to use when we went to the local or other nearby beaches. Brian and Andrea were very good to liase with the booking etc. nothing was to much trouble to discuss. Would certainly recommend to any potential holiday makers.
