About the property

Apartment in Playas de Fornells, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Great Location, 50m To Sea

Beautiful beach apartment with newly refurbished, luxury kitchen. Located in cozy playas de fornells, the apartment and the surroundings have everything one could ever want from a mediterranean vacation. Playa de fornells is located in the unspoiled northern part of the island, with fewer tourists and more tranquility. The award-winning urbanization has genuine charm and many owners are locals who use the houses/apartments as holiday homes on the island! Everything one needs is just around the corner: spectacular beaches (e.G. Tirant and pregonda), restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, cozy villages (e.G. Fornells and mercadal). Enjoy your stay!

About Linus de Faire

Born and bred in Menorca, I left the island to study some 15 years ago. But my heart never really left Menorca! Now I live and work in the Middle East with humanitarian issues, a demanding, but rewarding work.

Linus de Faire purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Linus de Faire chose Minorca (Menorca)

Five years ago, I bought this amazing apartment to stay in when I come back for visits - at least once a year. Most of my family still live on the island. My Swedish husband, our two daughters and I all love to spend lazy days on the lawn next to the sea in front of the apartment complex. Or, we are off to one of the beaches, especially the magnificent Cala Pregonda, a short drive from Playas de Fornells. If we feel extra lazy, we just hang out by the pool in front of the apartment, or jump into the Mediterranean from the cliffs 50 meters away.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has everything: During the births of both our daughters, the new family stayed in the apartment for three months (I wanted the girls to be Menorquinas, just like me!), and those times have been the best of my life. The apartment (and the area) has everything set up for a comfortable life, with everything nearby or a short distance away.

This is for you if you want peace and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on a lovely complex just outside Fornells, with beautiful views of the sea and if you like walking there are plenty of places to go. Be aware if you need to get around the island you need to hire a car, that's depending on what you want to do. The apartment has all the equipment you need for cooking meals. The owners are very helpful if you have any issues or you need to find out where things are. There are some nice restaurants on the complex and a bus service which will take you to the major areas of Menorca.

We were there for just over three weeks in September and had a wonderful time. Fully recommended.

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

i highly recommend this place if you are after a quiet holiday. we had a wonderful time. the apartment is lovely, spacious and very well equipped and we found a lot of useful extras (snorkels, games, towels, books, coffee, tea, sugar, condiments, tinned food, bottled water, cleaning and washing powder, shampoo and shower gels, etc.). great pool - we mostly had to ourselves - good size, very clean and deep enough to swim all around. the whole apartment complex has a lovely layout and is very clean and so is the rest of playa de fornells! the nearby old village of fornells is equally beautiful and clean. next to the apartment complex, there are some coves great for snorkeling (when the tramuntana wind doesn't blow...) and nice walks along the coast and up the hills with great view of the peninsula and accross the sea. the fornells area is very quiet, a few spanish restaurants, nothing much going on. a very authentic place. if you are after nature and not nightlife, i highly recommend this place. the owner was very helpful and always responded to emails immediately. we had the best family holiday and although i never go back to the same place, i might consider this one :-)

The Perfect Place for a Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh annual family holiday staying in Los Tamarindos, Playas de Fornells, Menorca and this is undoubtedly the best apartment in which we have stayed. So good, in fact, that we booked for 2017 after only a few days into our holiday!

The living area has plenty of space (including a very comfy sofa), and room for a dining table. The balcony (on the first floor) just off the living room overlooks the pool and the blue waters of the Mediterranean, which means you can catch a welcome breeze. The kitchen is really well equipped (nice modern induction hob with oven, dishwasher, washing machine) - and because of its position in the building there's much less heat and cooking is no trouble at all. The bedrooms are a good size. Our two sons stayed in one room, and were very content - it does get warm, but there's an electric fan in the room. They also had their own bathroom, with shower.The main bedroom is a good size and has its own en suite. Again, there's an electric fan should it be needed.

Los Tamarindos is set in an especially beautiful part of the resort, and this is the perfect place for enjoying a family holiday. People are friendly and often the same families (largely Spanish, with some British and Italian) come back year after year. It's a short walk to on site supermarkets, some nice little restaurants and a fabulous cocktail bar, "Okapi", serving excellent value food which parents and children will love. The resort itself can be easily reached by bus/car from Mahon (about 20 minutes or so) and a great base for exploring other parts of the island.

The owners are great - prompt and helpful in their responses. If I was you, I would book now (but not, Linus, for the dates we have chosen!).

Lovely apartment, lovely holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with this comfortable apartment & the complex. Great facilities in the apartment & in Playa de Fornells in general.

The pool was great for the children, they made lots of Spanish friends that week. The kitchen is well equipped to cook a good Spanish meal, though short walk to local restaurants too.

Couple of minutes walk to sea for amazing snorkelling & swimming. We didn't want to go home.

Would definitely rebook this place & we hope to next year. Thanks to Linus & Tania for their helpful tips.

This property is equally suited to parents with young or older children, and with only a couple of steps up from car parking right outside is easily manageable by older couples even with a minor disability. It is clean and well equipped, boasting a fully fitted kitchen to eclipse other accommodation we have stayed in, and two bathrooms so no fights in the morning. Visitors can choose just to explore the area on foot, with all necessary amenities close to hand, restaurants, beaches or swimming pool, tapas café, supermarkets, and a bus service to nearby towns. The more adventurous can tackle a rocky coastal walk to Fornells, but please remember to take water with you until you can reward yourself with a drink in many café/restaurants in the Port. We choose to collect a hire-car direct from the airport and venture all over the island. Visitors should consider a trek up Mont Toro and take in the views of the whole island. With everything to hand, its home from home, with a lot more Sun!

Delightful appartment

  • 5 of 5

A delightful apartment, overlooking the pool and with a glimpse of the sea. The property was clean and well maintained and generally lived up to expectations, although the "chef's dream" of a kitchen is a little overstated but quite functional.

We often took the short walk to a very small beach, which was great for mooching about with the snorkels, with a nearby wreck to explore.

We liked the homely feel of the place, and the tips on places to go were spot on. The local cafes & restaurants were good and friendly, and the local beach was clean, although we usually drove to other beaches (Son Parc was a favourite). A good place from which to explore the north end of the island. A car is recommended, although not essential.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jeanne! We are very glad you liked it! We understand why the description a 'chef's dream' might be a bit over the top. Perhaps a more sound description should be a 'chef's-dream-of-a-small-but-functional-summer-apartment's-kitchen ;) Hope you are having a wonderful autumn and hope to see you in Menorca in the future! Best wishes Linus and Tania
