Excellent Stay at La Torre, October 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this apartment. We knew there were two flights of stairs to arrive at the front door but not too arduous.

That gorgeous Palm like tree has gone so entrance doesn't look quite the same from the roadside now.

The apartment was clean, nicely furnished & comfortable. Everything one could need for self catering. Loved all the wrap around terraces. Sunshine all day long. Views superb. Watched the sun rise & go down from different terraces. Watched the Ferries & cargo boats escourted in. Ate breakfast on one terrace & if we were in we ate on the other terrace to watch sun go down.

We used the local buses to get about. No 2 into Es Castelle or to Mahon for 1.65 euro each way. No 10 bus to & from Airport to Mahon 2.65 euro each way & No 1 Mahon to Cuitadella 5.10 euro each way. We would have done more trips but just wanted to embrace Mahon for its beauty & diversity. Did loads of walking about though. Museums, Cathedral in Cuitadella etc.

Strolled to the Hotel Del Almirante (Collingwood House)for a drink one afternoon but not served until 1700 so walked down to the waters edge of Mahon's Natural Harbour via steep steps & stony path. Watched a couple catching octopus! Then back for that drink.

A very good little supermarket (Tangerine) & petrol station just by the bus stop for the necessities & the SPAR in Es Castelle has excellent range of local cheeses & meats & all things else.

This is a lovely place to stay & already looking at return flights to return to this apartment.

Excellent stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous two weeks in this apartment! We knew that there were flights of steps to reach the front door but it was well worth it. nicely furnished, it was very well equipped and very clean, the shower room excellent and bed very comfortable. Outside areas were numerous to choose from to sit or lie and not overlooked! We felt safe and extremely relaxed. On the negative side there could have been more instructions on use of oven and washing machine in English. But we did sort it out. Local neighbours friendly and helpful.

The situation of the apartment is perfect for strolling to Mahon, one way, or es castell and cala fonts the other way...both in 10-15 mins. Ideal for evening meal. You really do need a car to explore small coves etc, but a bus does stop nearby to get to Mahon bus station to get more buses. Although no pool at apartment, we found the hotel nearby where we could use the pool at the cost of a drink extremely handy and very pleasant....you can walk to this. We would strongly recommend this for an able bodied couple...definitely not suitable for children as the terraces have low walls and so they could easily fall over! We certainly hope to go back!

There are approx 120 beaches in Menorca and as the island is only 30 x 9 miles they are all within easy reach by car or bus. The nearest 5 mins away to the farthest which is 1 hour away.


Mahon airport is the only airport on the island and is 15 mins away from apartment. It is recommended to hire a car as some of the places worth seeing are not on a bus route. Please contact me if you do want a car for prices etc.

Mahon centre is a walk or 15 min bus ride away, market days are Saturday and Tuesday mornings. Es Castell has a Monday and Wednesday morning market.


From the apartment it is a 15 min walk to nearest town where there are plenty of restaurants and bars, shops, banks and post office.
