About LYNNE

Hi. My husband and I live in the UK. We have five children that are grown up now, but they spent all their childhood holidays in Menorca. We now have ten grandchildren and they have followed in their parents footsteps of holidaying in our villa.The reason we have spent so many years holidaying in Menorca is the fact that Calan Porter has a lovely beach, which is very safe for small children, the flight is only one hour fifty minutes and the transfer time is approx 10 min. The Menorcan people love children and they are welcome in all the bars and restaurants and nothing is too much trouble to make you feel welcome. We bought this property and refurbished it throughout to make it feel like a home from home environment and very comfortable.

LYNNE purchased this villa in 2011

Why LYNNE chose Minorca (Menorca)

This villa is very spacious and has just been refurbished to a high standard. You will just love waking up and walking out to the terrace to have your breakfast by the pool. The children love the extra large pool and the slide.

What makes this villa unique

You can enjoy the tranquility of the position of this property but still close enough to walk to all the amenities. Transfer time from the airport is approx ten mins.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lynne,



Just writing to say we had the most fabulous time at the Villa – it really was a dream! Thank you for letting us in to your lovely home. I will admit I was a little apprehensions as it was the first time I’ve ever booked something myself! It was 10/10.



We explored the coves, snorkelled, ate lovely food, rented some scooters and visited other areas on the island it really was great! We had lovely weather only one day did it storm a little (no rain) and on the day we flew home it rained constantly which was very apt and made leaving a little easier haha



I think we will definitely be back hopefully we left it in good working order for you we tidied as much as we could please let me know about the deposit etc



Warmest Regards,



Hollie

Wonderful spacious villa Highly recommended +5*

  • 5 of 5

As a party of 7 adults including myself and my partner, our teenage son, our two daughters and their partners, we found Villa Paraisa a delight.

Adequate storage in all four of the bedrooms, all of our clothes were hung or in drawers without any difficulty.

The kitchen area is huge with a fabulous fridge freezer. There are plenty of glasses and crockery, the oven and microwave were clean and the washing machine was simple to use. Ample cupboard and bunker space to hold snacks and other groceries.

Clean bathrooms with showers that provide a good stream of water.

Large living room area with plentiful seating.

Beds were comfortable.

Air conditioning works using a simple coin meter, the AC units can be controlled independently in all rooms.

Good wi-fi connection.

The pool is huge and we all enjoyed using the slide. 7 of us with inflatables were able to splash about and swim together during our all too short stay.

The villa is surrounded by a large wall with a locked gate access providing privacy and security.

The villa is located about a 10 minute stroll from the main center of Cala'n Porter where there are many shops and restaurants. 2 of the shops offer free home delivery which we would recommend- carrying a five liter water bottle back up the hill to the villa can bring you out in a sweat!

From the center we took two taxis to Lloc de Menorca, a small zoo that is a great day out. The taxis can take up to four passengers and cost us under 20 euros per taxi one way. There's also a great bus service to Mahon from where you can connect to the rest of the island should you wish, as well as a less frequent service to Alaior.

The walk across the Cami de Cavalles trail to Cales Coves is a must! It's on natural, rugged terrain so suitable footwear (trainers) is advised.

The owner emailed us once we had arrived to ensure that all was in order, information is provided in the villa for possible excursions, excellent customer service. The pool maintenance was not intrusive. We would not hesitate to book this villa again and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Perfect holiday in a perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the best I have been to in a long while. It has everything you could wish for and the villa was just like it was in the pictures on the Owners Direct website.

Tried to secure dates for 2018 but already booked so looking now for 2019 as it was just beautiful. Very spacious, good speed wifi, comfy beds, air con and well equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher Lovely large BBQ on the terrace. The pool was big enough for all eight at one time with still space for Inflatables.

Another plus is that everything was within walking distance. The owners were great, very responsive to messages and even contacted us on our arrival to see if everything was to our satisfaction, yes, indeed it was.

Thank you very much and we would dearly love to return to your beautiful home

One very happy family.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful villa. It exceeded our expectations, it was spot on.

The large pool was wonderful. It was a big pool with a slide so kept everyone amused. ..everyone had a sunbed so no fighting for a bed to lay in the sun. Nice big terrace and a great shade under outside area as it did get very hot. Nice big BBQ. Not one of these silly little things that only holds 6 sausages at any one time

Kitchen had everything we needed, very well equipped, looks like I'm having to purchase a dishwasher now after having the bonus of the one in the villa. We could also do one big shop as there was a freezer to keep our BBQ meat in.

Lovely bedrooms with comfy beds and nice bed linen. Plenty of storage space.

The lounge was extremely comfortable. Nice comfy sofas plus a bit of telly in the evening as we could obtain the English tv channels. Wife could keep up with her soaps.

Have rebooked for next year as we as a large family had such a great holiday

Thanks again for the use of your lovely villa

Jon and family
