Overview

About the property

Farmhouse near San Climent, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Atmospheric Charming Family Casa Accessible To Roads, Beaches And Tow

Our delightful gated 5 bedroomed 250 year old pretty Menorquin little red riding hood rustic casa still retains its original charm whilst having been renovated and updated for modern living. Traditional Menorquin green shutters, enclosed on 3 sides by sympathetically part landscaped gardens, scented with lavender, citrus, fruit and fig trees, the house provides a relaxing way to enjoy the sunshine touched with a little history.The pretty front terrace invites you into the traditional Spanish hallway leading onto the very large kitchen diner which looks out onto the orchard with its lemon and lime trees and herb garden. The lounge looks over miles of open countryside where ne'er a person is seen, though sometimes the odd visiting sheep may peep in! The house is on the special Menorquin cycle route, and easily accessible to towns and beaches. It is a very short drive to the pretty little village of San Climent (or a leisurely walk through the country lanes) which has a couple of lovely restaurants and a cafe/bar where one can use the internet. The house has lots of atmosphere and is away from the touristy parts of Menorca. The pool is very large. Great for couples and families alike.

About Dez

We bought our beautiful house in 2000 as an escape from London and a potential retirement home and it has been a labour of love. We wanted somewhere that felt like home, that we could come to and feel safe and secure -with privacy, rustic charm and atmosphere, not too far from the airport and surrounded by true Spanish people and not tourists but within a few minutes of shops and a short drive to the beach. Once we found our dream location we set about updating and modernising the house but with a gentle respect for its age and history. We wanted a large pool and lots of places to sunbathe, places to park three cars and we have it! All our friends who have stayed over the years have loved it and now we are opening our doors to new guests who will hopefully love it as much as we do.

Dez purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Why Dez chose Minorca (Menorca)

Not only do we have access to the typical Spanish beaches, bars, villages and restaurants- if we need to nip to the pharmacy it's a two mins drive (at the airport) or the supermarket its two mins drive (bini preu) which has coffee shop, restaurant, hairdresser, department store and supermarket- it's about a ten to fifteen minute walk and the busses to Mahon run from here. So we have a rural farmhouse with local convenience!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Lovely big pool all to yourself and a back area for BBQs- away from tourists yet a few minutes to the mega super mercado which even has a hairdressers as well as a department store area, a coffee shop and a restaurant

Our sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

I booked this beautiful farm house for myself and 7 members of my family. We had the most amazing week we didn't want to go home. The farmhouse is a home from home. Felt extremely comfortable and relaxed there. The pool is a perfect size for adults and children where we had lots of fun together. We spent everyday lounging by the pool. Plenty of sun loungers are there so everyone got their own sun bed. My two young sons even learnt to swim in the pool. It's secluded so we didn't have to worry about neighbours yet close to the supermarkets and airport. You would need to hire a car to get to the farmhouse and supermarkets as it's not a short walking distance. There are planes flying over daily but we didn't even notice them after the first day they were no problem at all.

We loved it so much we've booked to go back for two weeks next summer :-) Dezzi is a wonderful person with great communication, very friendly and happy to help in any way she can. We were even fortunate enough to meet her on our arrival to the farmhouse. Which was lovely.

A beautiful, secluded farmhouse in large grounds

  • 5 of 5

I loved the generous, modernised accommodation which combines seclusion, rustic charm, plenty of space and excellent facilities plus the large pool and extensive, planted grounds all surrounded by farmland but only a few minutes drive from local shops.

The owner provided detailed information about the property, how to get there from the airport, car hire, local attractions, restaurants and scenic places to visit.

Contact information is provided for essential services including upkeep and use of the property.

I have booked this accommodation again, for a holiday in 2017!

Utterly lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful stay at Casa Lavanda.

Dez's communications were fantastic, so everything was organised and ran very smoothly before and during our visit.

The house itself is a lovely old-fashioned farmhouse, with beautiful gardens and pool area. You can pick fresh figs and plums off the trees, enjoy the amazing pool, and lie under the pine trees when you fancy a bit of shade.

The house is really conveniently close to the airport, to the supermarket and to the capital Mahon, but feels totally private and rural – it's set off a little lane, in big gardens with fields at the back, and once you shut the gates you're in your own little world.

You will be aware of the planes, but we didn't find it at all intrusive – they're not frequent or late.

Only one warning: you really won't want to come home!

Blissful place!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful place - we ended up spending alot of time in the gardens & by the pool, instead of the beach - so relaxing to just pop in the kitchen for a snack or drink then be lazing on a sunbed within seconds...The local village, St.Climente had a flower festival while we were there which was lovely. We walked through the back lanes one evening to go out for dinner there (4 lovely restaurants to choose from, including our favourite, Es Pla which has a lovely garden or you can eat in the town square) . It took about half an hour and would have been worth it for the walk alone. Everywhere was a riot of wildflowers and birdsong. The surroundings are just stunning. We were going to get a cab back but enjoyed the walk so much, we returned by moonlight listening to the nightingales & crickets. The barbecue area was very handy, and we picked lemons and sage from the beautiful grounds to cook with. We walked 10 mins up the road to the big department store / supermarket. Binipreu, for shopping (and used the hairdresser there!) . There is also a half hourly bus service to Mahon which meant we could both have a few glases of wine without worrying about driving. We drove to Cuitidella at the other end of the island one afternoon which was beautiful. It's worth hiring a car as there is so many stunning beaches, St.Thomas, Binebeca, Cala n Porter (only 10 mins drive with great bars & restaurants for the evening) & Algeriens. Next time we plan to hire bikes as the cyclepaths througout the island are something else. Can't wait to go back! p.s - it was so nice to have a sitting room to watch dvd's / tv in before bed - and 3 loo's to choose from! little things like that make all the difference....

Lazy days

A perfect retreat for lazy days and nights!

Great gardens and pool.

Easy location to find, very close to the airport.

Good for exploring the island.

A car would be advised as need to drive to amenities.

Our lucky find !!

  • 5 of 5

Having found ourselves in the position of a last minute chance of a get away ( plus flights to Menorca ) we set about looking for a place to stay where we could just relax and un-wind. How lucky were we to find Dez and her gorgeous home in rural Menorca. A charming and rustic farm house set in a lovely Lavender Garden. With its spacious pool area and plenty of room for al fresco dining it gave us just the get away we were looking for. An added bonus was Dez herself, who helped get everything sorted last minute and kept in touch to ensure we had a hassle free stay. With its close proximity to the airport there is some obvious aircraft noise but we found this un-intrusive and less of a disturbance than the typical resort noises of Mopeds and late night life in general. We will certainly be looking to return and cant wait to be relaxing there again very soon
