'La Calma' Villa in S'Algar, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Huge Private Pool

'La Calma' Villa in S'Algar, Menorca, Balearic Islands – A great family home larger than the typical villas with a huge private Pool.

Sited on one the largest plots in the area, this well-built and very spacious villa … ‘La Calma’ is perfect for families or groups of friends to relax and enjoy in a very much home from home environment.

Only 20 minutes drive from the airport, the villa is situated just a couple of minute’s walk from the sea and the centre of S’Algar where you can find bars, restaurants, shops and a small supermarket.

For those who enjoy diving or snorkelling, the well-known S’Algar Diving School is just a few minutes walk away.

Saint Lluis is a 5 minute drive by car and has a pharmacy, medical centre, cash points, supermarkets and a variety of shops and restaurants.

S’Algar has a seasonal bus service and taxis are easily available to take you to various locations, including the capital, Mahon, a busy and historic port and the pretty town of Es Castell where many bars and restaurants nestle round the harbourside.

For keen walkers and cyclists, the ‘Cami de Cavalls’ – a protected and historic pathway running around the whole of the Menorcan coastline, can be joined just a short walk away from the villa. It will take you through stunning and beautiful countryside where you will find wild flower meadows, almond trees and mimosa, plus woodland areas, rugged coastlines and hidden coves.

This beautiful spacious home set in a large plot has 4 double size bedrooms, 3 with ‘en suite’ bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is located at the top of the villa and enjoys a view of the sea from its own private terrace. Ceiling fans throughout and ‘air conditioning’ in each bedroom keeps the villa cool in the summer. For those visiting during the cooler months, the air conditioners become heaters and there is an open fire in the lounge. A large kitchen/diner will seat 8 people or more.

For indoor entertainment, there is Wifi, Sky TV, a DVD player, and a 50” TV. (Your own music can be piped onto the terrace and around the pool). A selection of dvds and books are also available.

Outside has a large private terrace, with a covered area, perfect for alfresco dining and sitting in the shade. The sun terrace overlooks a huge swimming pool – 15m x 8m (fenced off for the security of children) with plenty of room for sunbathing. There is an outside bar area with fridge, a shower, a WC and even a changing room for guests.

Adjacent to the pool is a large grassed area for ball games and there is even a full size boules court.

Leading from the french doors in the dining area at the rear of the property, there is the option of a built in BBQ or Weber gas BBQ and a large alfresco dining area.

In conclusion La Calma is unlike many of the other villas in S’Algar. It was bought for the owner’s four generation’s of family to enjoy but they are now happy to share it with others at certain dates. It is a spacious and comfortable family home with many amenities that make it ideal for a relaxing holiday with sufficient space both inside and outside so guests of all generations can have their own privacy in the same house.

About the Owner

We love to get to know the place we are visiting and the people who live there. We live in England and work very hard, so now when we take a break it is important we can settle in straight away to make the most of our time off.

A lovely stay in a lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed in the villa for a week in August (one couple, two singles). The villa could very happily accommodate a much larger group as there was loads of outdoor and indoor space - enough for everyone to be able to do their own thing if they wanted to. We had a terrific time and made a lot of use of the kitchen and barbecue, both of which were great. We loved the large pool and grounds and one evening we even saw a tortoise in the garden! The villa is also very well managed - it was spotless when we arrived and Paul and Jan were great at responding to our queries and in providing information. The villa had everything we needed (and more!) and if I go back to that part of Menorca again (and I hope I will) then I would be very keen to stay in it again.

Great location with space and privacy

Subject: Review of La Calma

We had a wonderful relaxing two week stay in La Calma. We had never been to Menorca before what a friendly unspoilt island. The villa was lovely. It is spacious and decorated to a high specification. Comfortable beds, good quality bed linen and towels and a well equipped modern kitchen. There are four large double bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, plus two other shower rooms. Allowing all to shower to get ready. One of the bedrooms is in the tower with its own sunny roof terrace overlooking the sea and the views over the village. Great for watching the sun come up or go down over the sea with a glass of something cold in hand! We had privacy when we wanted, as there is lots of space. The rooms are definitely larger than the normal rooms we saw in some other local villas. The clever design layout of bedrooms means that house can be sectioned off so it does not seem too big.

The swimming pool is amazing – it's huge and the gardens (maintained weekly) around it make it very private with sun loungers etc. to laze around the pool. The swimming pool is also fenced off so it's safe for small children. It even has an outside changing room and separate toliet. There's a poolside bar with fridge for drinks and a gas fired bbq. Adjacent to the main living area and overlooking the pool is a spacious undercover outdoor dining area, which is great for eating al fresco.

Also to the other side of the property is an enormous terrace with a built in bbq, which is ideal for large lunchtime gatherings.

It had good wifi and large screen TV with Dvd player and lots of DVD films plus a music centre.

There were six of us as we stayed with two other couples and there was more than enough room to have our own private space. It would accommodate 10 people easily as the villa and its surroundings are so large and therefore it would be perfect for larger groups, including those with children. There was air conditioning when we needed it in the bedrooms but we tended to be by the pool and eating on the terrace at night.

An English woman and her brother, who have lived on the island for many years, manage the villa. They are very approachable and extremely helpful. She will not only help you with regard to the villa but also recommend restaurants or places to visit. We needed help and advice as we needed to see a doctor and she was very efficient in organising an appointment. The owners were lovely and also gave us lots of information

An exquisite home for a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

La Calma is an expansive and comfortable home, beautifully furnished and equipped, ideally suited to the extended family sharing precious days together.

The high quality of decor, furnishings and appliances is exemplary offering every possible convenience and assuring complete relaxation.

The outside space is superb with extensive gardens, ample covered terracing and a securely gated pool essential for young children.

Communication with owners and management company is personal, attentive yet extremely efficient.

Altogether, the opportunity to stay at La Calma, in our opinion a rare gem, is a real privilege and cannot be recommended more highly.

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with this villa the minute we saw it... and we're sure you will too. We love S’algar because although it is only 15 minutes drive from the airport and Mahon harbour, It is not on a main route and is nestled in its own little bay. Perfect!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

With rock sunbathing, excellent snorkelling and the S’algar scuba diving school, there really isn't any need to stray far from La Calma.

Alcaufar is only 15 minutes walk away.

With more beaches than the rest of the Balearic Islands put together, holidays in Menorca put the spotlight on relaxation. Rugged cliffs lead to secluded coves and calm waters while lush countryside is home to olive groves and orchards. Narrow cobbled streets wind their way down to quaint fishing harbours.

Travel:

La Calma is 15 minutes drive from Mahon harbour and Mahon airport. Pick ups can be arranged with a reliable taxi firm. Car hire really isn't essential, as there are restaurants, bars, a supermarket and a bakery in S'algar only 5 mins walk away. You can easily catch regular buses to the main harbour and other bus routes.

Distances:

The villa is only a 15 minute drive from Mahon harbour - a great place for a fun night out and it's easy and inexpensive to catch a taxi home.

Further Details:

S'algar: Plentiful restaurants, bars and shops/supermarkets are only five minutes walk away in the very clean and tidy village of S’algar. S’algar runs a little town train so you can ride back up to the villa after dinner if you're too full to walk...

Overall, S'algar is a pleasant, quiet and relaxing location, inhabited mainly by people who live there most of the year.

Unspoilt, idyllic, glistening sand, turquoise water just about every tourist brochure cliché is actually true when you are talking about Menorca. Outside peak season, it is still often warm enough to sit in the sun and the temperature is ideal for strolling around the coastal paths, or of course relaxing by your own private pool.
