About the property

Villa in Cala'n Porter, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Peaceful Location, 7 Minutes Walk To All Amenities, 10 Minutes Walk To Beach

The property is in a quiet road with space for double parking. It is close to the centre of Cala'n Porter, about a 7 Minute stroll, but is far enough away to be unaffected by music from the village bars, good if you need a nap during the day. Music outsidethe Bars and Restaurants in the village is stopped around 11pm. The disco 'Cova de Xoroi' goes on into the wee small hours but is the other end of Cala'n Porter and built below ground in a huge cave complex which is well worth a visit either by day or night.

About Elli

Originally from London, I have been living on and off on Menorca for a number of years, a wonderful Island with a kind and friendly populace.

I hope you decide to holiday in my villa, there will always be someone on hand if you have any sort of problem.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for viewing, kindest regards

Elli purchased this villa in 1998

Why Elli chose Cala en Porter

I first came to Menorca in 1984 and fell in love with the Island. When I decided to buy a property abroad I choose Menorca for its beauty, tranquility and safety. I liked the slow pace and friendly Islanders, I found it catered to all ages, has some wonderful beaches, magnificent views and always lots to explore. I especially like visiting the prehistoric sites dotted around the Island.

It is the most tranquil of the Balearic Islands, great for families and by plane, only two hours from the UK.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is very convenient to all amenities, it has everything needed close by, swimming in the pool, the safe and lovely sandy beach and its tapas bars, enjoy stopping for tapas and a cooling drink on a hot sunny day to watch the world go by.

The friendliness of the Islanders, the International shops in the Capital city of Mahon, and Prehistoric Site visiting. There is also water sports, golfing, paintballing, bowling, cinemas and lots of other activities to pursue.

Really nice property and a great two week stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our two week stay at Villa Xibet. Great pool with plenty of space for relaxing on the many loungers provided. Ample outdoor space for eating and relaxing in sun or shade. Views across to the other side of the ravine and out to sea. Enough room inside - although we were hardly indoors at all due to the fantastic weather - only really to shower and sleep ! Conveniently situated and only quite a short walk into town. Very friendly and helpful owner, Elli. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic weeks holiday. The villa was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The outside area was also fantastic with a fab swimming pool and lots of space to sunbathe on one of the many sunbeds. Only a short walk to bars, restaurants and the supermarket. The beach is lovely with the sea breeze to cool it down. Both Elli and Penny were lovely and Elli is not far away to help with anything you may need. Would highly recommend staying at Villa Xibet.

Home from home...

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in various 'James Villas' in recent years, but this year decided to try owners direct, and i'm happy to say that this one topped the lot...Lovely clean villa with plenty of room for the 6 of us to spread out for two weeks. We really didn't want for anything, even down to the inflatable dinghy, lilo, and fishing nets in the utility room...!!!...The children also had the option of watching one of the many movies on offer in the living room when the sun got a little too hot for them. The villa had a fan in each bedroom for those hot nights, and a lovely pool area with dining and BBQ. You even get a sea view from some parts of the garden. Cala en Porter is under 10 minutes away at a stroll with enough places to eat for a fortnight, and only a couple of minutes more to the wonderful beach. Elli and Penny we're a delight to deal with when booking, and Elli was also really helpful with any questions whilst we were there. Loved our two weeks at the Villa and would definitely recommend to others. Thanks.
