Amazing, fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect family holiday and it ticked all the boxes - location spot on, villa was home from home and had everything we needed. The area is beautiful and unspoilt and having three girls of 19, 13 and 7 the area felt safe. The pictures really do not do the whole place justice! The bars and restaurants were excellent and a five minute walk away. Also I would like to mention Gill and Phil (MC Management) they were on hand to help with car hire and any advice. I would absolute recommend this villa and location to friends and family (and already have done so!). We hope to return. Thanks again Julie, John, Lucy, Emily and Annie xx

Fabulous house in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in this house, which is in a superbly landscaped holiday development, walking distance from two lovely beaches and some great restaurants and bars with wonderful views and just a few minutes drive from amazing sailing and windsurfing and a lovely village with regular festivals and great food. We loved the views from the house, which is really spacious and comfortably furnished plus everything you could possibly need is provided including boogie boards, clothes rack and pegs, hairdryer and lots of British plugs. My husband sailed for a week with Minorca Sailing at Ses Salines and my daughters and I did sailing and windsurfing at Wind Fornells, just down the road from Ses Salines. Both are incredibly friendly and professional with brilliant instructors and good kit. The beach near the house has beautiful water and the best boogie boarding we've done for ages on the days when the surf was up. It's shallow and there's also a surf lifeguard so it's really safe. Kayaks, paddle boards and pedallos are available for rent. The local wild wind whipped up a couple of times whilst we were there and there was a fair bit of banging and whistling but not so hard to sleep if you turn the fan on and bring in the plastic chairs! The wind created excellent sailing and windsurfing conditions and spectacular waves and also kept us nice and cool.

The pool in the development is a bit of a walk from the house but it's a nice stroll through the wonderfully higgledy piggledy paths. It's small and quiet with lovely views. There is also access to a magnificently large and deep pool just up the road which was brilliant. And there's a water park you can pay to have a day's access to as well. Plus great gelato down by the beach.

We did have one issue with the house, but a visit to the English managers, just a minute's walk away, saw it being fixed the same day. Great service.

All in all, a place we will definitely be returning to! :)

We loved our break here recently. The house had all we needed, had lovely views and was in a great location. There was nothing we didn't enjoy about this property and holiday.

Stunning views and superb location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night in the middle of a Mediterranean thunder storm. However on arrival we found the villa spotlessly clean ,spacious.and welcoming . We woke next morning to stunning sea views and beautiful surrounding gardens.

We were a party of 4 and everything was there to meet our holiday requirements.A nice touch is the provision of satellite TV so that we could catch up with our local news throughout the week. We enjoyed the coastal walk to Fornells and its fabulous harbour side restaurants.

The local beach is only a short walk from the villa and provides safe bathing and would be excellent for children and families.

There are restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk of the villa .However this is a quite resort that has all the facilities for a relaxing holiday.We would recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Great location - lots of space and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We visited this garden villa and were for sure not disappointed. The location is fantastic, the property is well equipped and pictures did for sure not oversell. We enjoyed 10 days of sun and nice food in an area with fantastic ambience. Only minor suggestions to improve would be wifi and a small cooler in the sleeping rooms (a fan is not enough when + 35 degrees.

Super Villa, Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Sharon and Mick for our enjoyable 10 day stay in this super villa, in an lovely part of the island.

The Menorcan home of such a friendly and helpful British family, it provided the perfect home from home experience combining a very Spanish feel with some welcome English touches.

With use of the shared pool, and being so close to the beach, (where we have enjoyed many snorkelling trips and a pedalo on calmer days, and the exhilaration of the waves / body boarding on the windier days), it is perfect for children....Even though the villa had a TV it remained untouched!

Having stayed in alternative villas in the local area before, the spaciousness and coolness of this villa was particularly of note, particularly with the addition of welcome fans, if needed, in all 3 bedrooms for the when it gets really hot! Being situation in a great location affording lovely sea breezes and an option of seating terraces, this villa gets our vote whether you prefer sun or shade.

Having a choice of friendly bars and restaurants nearby, two local supermarkets and full cooking and barbeque facilities in the villa, every individual culinary preference can be catered for. And, being such a small, pretty island, there are endless options for enjoyable days out by car - whether to local (and so lovely) Fornells or the larger towns of Mahon, Cuitadella, perhaps, or maybe enjoying one of the many idyllic beaches and coves, or drinking in the view of the island from the top of El Torro....

All in all, a great villa, a great location and a holiday island to treasure. Definitely recommended. Thanks again, Sharon and Mick.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

This is an ideal area for scuba diving, snorkelling, wind surfing, sailing, kite surfing and walking.


The sandy beach of Cala Tirant is just a few minutes walk away. There are many beautiful beaches on the island, some very secluded and only accessed on foot. The north of the island has a very rugged coast line and there is a coastal walk from Playas De Fornells into Fornells which takes 45 minutes.


Mahon airport is just 25 minutes away.

Cuitadella is 45 minutes drive.

There are local buses that run regularly to various parts of the island and the bus stop is a 5 minute walk away.

A car is recommended but not essential.


The quaint fishing village of Fornells is 5 minutes by car and has many excellent restaurants and a bank. El Toro monastery is the highest point on the island and is a 20 minute drive, partly very windy, but has amazing views from the top.

Further Details:

There are supermarkets, friendly bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance.
