About the property

House outside Ferreries, Nr. Cala Galdana, Menorca. Private, peaceful location; 10 mins drive to the beach

Looking for the perfect escape from the rat race? Es Moli de Dalt is an enchanting house set in 10 acres of beautiful gardens and citrus orchards at the heart of a protected area of Menorca. Es Moli is ideal for those who love privacy and getting away from it all. Wonderfully secluded, and a family home, this is not the sort of property you can find through a travel agent and it is much loved by those who have been there, who return year after year. Menorca is known for its wealth of natural diversity and beauty and the house is ideally situated to appreciate this wonderful aspect of the island. In addition to being a UNESCO designated biosphere preserve, Menorca also has the greatest concentration of prehistoric monuments in the world with fine port cities with cobbled streets and Baroque architecture. If you have been looking for the perfect retreat, look no further. You have found it at Es Moli De Dalt.

About Emma Ferrier

We are an Anglophile family who love Menorca! We all help in the running of our beautiful home-from-home. We value spending time with family and friends and it seemed like the perfect place for that to happen. Es Moli and the local town, Ferreries, give you a real sense of life on Menorca. It's the perfect hideaway! I wish we could explain better why we all go back year after year, but this house is like no other. It’s home from home and at the same time it is an escape from all the stresses of home. Try it and see if you agree.

Why Emma Ferrier chose Ferreries

We came across this house when it was a ruin and the unique location, peace and beauty of the site was irresistible. With a friend, the house was restored and the Mill came back to life.

We have tried to explain to people the appeal of Es Moli but it is inexplicable. All we do know is that when people of all ages do take the house they come back and immediately ask when they can return.

Maybe it’s the peace, the sun, the wildlife, the comfort of the house, the pace of the island.

If you want a frenetic holiday it is not the place for you, but if you want to spend time with friends and family, to laugh a lot, sleep in peace, walk, swim, eat, play games and actually relax, you won’t find anywhere else like it.

What makes this house unique

One of the benefits of the house is its remoteness. In this frantic world, it's hard to get away from the constant demands on our time; Es Moli is in a world of its own. With no internet access and very limited mobile signal, you truly get to escape. We forget what life's like without that ‘ping’ of the phone or email, but here you get to remember what it was like to switch off.

The house is in the centre of the island, and everything is within easy reach. Once you are there you don’t want to go out – you have everything you need to have a perfect holiday right on your doorstep. Having said that, we all love the fact that Ferreries, the local town, is very much that – local. There is a brilliant butcher, fishmonger, grocer and bakery and the restaurants are for locals, not tourists.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just a quick note to say what a fabulous holiday we had in your lovely house. The house and the gardens were just divine and in that setting it all gets just magical."

"What a truly wonderful week we have just had! The peace and tranquillity of the setting were a revelation and we wish we could have stayed for a month!"

"Quite the most relaxing week ever! The birds were amazing, the butterflies stunning, and we had some wonderful walks. It was a glorious haven from the chaos of modern life and we all adored it."

A confortable, well equipped and beautiful house. An exceptional landscape !

  • 5 of 5

the charm of an English garden in a Mediterranean context. What a job for the very efficient gardener Biel ! Furthermore, Biel and his wife Anna took care of us with great attention.

For example, we had fruits and vegetables from the garden every day.

In short, a great experience.

Only one comment : we would have liked to be informed of the road that leads to the house. That would have allowed us to rent a car suitable for deep holes and rocks.

Owner's Response: Dear Carole Thank you for your review. Your kind words are much appreciated. I am also grateful to you for the tip about the road - we had no idea it was that bad. We understand it has been due to some extreme floods but we are sorting it out now. Best wishes Emma

As a family with 3 children (5, 9 & 12) we stayed at Es Moli for the first time this April and fell in love at first sight - we will definitely be going back, next time with friends. Tucked away in a gorge, surrounded by lemon and orange trees with Egyptian vultures soaring overhead we felt a million miles away from everyone. (We'd like to know more about the other birds around us for the next visit!).

The house is great and has everything you need - tons of cutlery and crockery for bigger groups and lots of dishes and kitchen equipment. The beds were comfy and the linen fresh and new (so often in holiday houses the sheets feel old), and both bath and beach towels provided for everyone. With bedrooms in different areas it would be great for a mix of families/friends, as you can spread out a bit.

Once you get used to the track to and from the house (bumpy!!) it doesn't feel nearly as long as the first drive down it, and then you're on the main road with easy access to the whole of the island. We visited several beaches, all different and all great - we were lucky with great weather in April before the high season so the beaches were pretty quiet. Pottering around Ciutadella, Fornells, Es Mercadal, Ferreries was fun too.

Slightly loathe to tell people about Es Moli as we don't want to share…. But this isn't for everyone - if you're looking for an all-inclusive/multi watersports/kids club/5 restaurant holiday, this isn't the place for you!

Amazing place !

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this fabulous finca, a fantastic place of nature with a gorgeous garden and a stunning view. Perfect place to disconnect ! We were 2 families with 3 kids who loved the place too.

The road that leads to the house is slightly rough, but this marvelous site is worth the effort.

Anyway if you don't like isolation this is maybe not the best place for you.
