Beautiful villa with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

As a family with teens, this was the perfect villa as the children appreciated their own space (and the satellite T.V.) There was everything we needed and it was very spacious and clean. The views were fantastic and we sat most evenings enjoying the sunsets and watching the world go by. The pool was very welcome to cool down and we used it quite a few times. The walk to get there took us through the lovely gardens.

The resort was quiet but with enough restaurants/bars, to enjoy evenings out. We ate at the local bar- Sa Dolce- a few times. The food was delicious and we were made very welcome. We also had an excellent meal at Cafe del Nord, and highly recommend a visit.

We did not have a car but were able to do some exploring using the excellent and low-priced local bus service, visiting Fornells, Mahon and Es Mercadel.

We were lucky to have sunshine everyday so ended up on the beach, a short walking distance away, most afternoons. Although popular, the larger beach was never overcrowded so it was worth the climb on the wooden steps and walkway.

We have come home with lots of wonderful memories of our stay in this villa, and would highly recommend a stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sarah, for your very positive review. We are so thrilled that all of your family enjoyed the holiday. It sounds as though you managed to explore some of the island, even though you didn't hire a car, and took advantage of the excellent local bus service. We are pleased that you enjoyed the hospitality of some of the local bars and restaurants on the community, who always make our guests very welcome. We hope to welcome you again in the not too distant future.

A fabulous villa within close proximity of all you need!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the villa after dark. When I threw open the shutters the following morning I was absolutely staggered by the view. The sunsets were exceptional from the terrace too.

The surrounding gardens are beautiful and well maintained, they're a real joy to stroll through to the lovely little pools. Again, views and surroundings from the pool are fantastic.

The villa is spacious and has everything you could ever need - even including bits for the beach.

The beach is close as are supermarkets, bars and restaurants.

A cracking little place which we will most certainly be returning to!

The only issue we had wasn't the fact that we had to leave!

Excellent well equipped villa

We have been coming to Menorca for over 30 years often staying in Playa Fornells. This villa/apartment rates highly compared to the many others we have stayed in.

Well equiped,comfortable and fantastic views.

We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends.

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! :)

lovely villa in great location with great views

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
