House in Es Grau, Menorca, Balearic Islands - House In Es Grau, Sleeps 4 Adults Comfortably And Has The Ability To Sleep Two Children
Our home in Es Grau was purchased by us 12 years ago and during this time we have renovated the property to a very high standard. The work included 2 new bedrooms, a new kitchen, 3 new shower rooms, utility room with washer dryer and extra fridge freezer, garage with electric garage door, air conditioning/warm air heating and the creation of a large roof terrace with wonderful views over the bay and village. The house sleeps 4 adults comfortably and has the ability to sleep two children on foldable beds. We think of Es Grau as the most perfect location on the island, and returning guests have often described it as Paradise; we tend to agree with them. Menorca is the smallest of the Balearic islands and remains greener throughout the year. The capital Mahon has a good selection of quality shops with local markets on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. The port area is particularly interesting with many Super Yachts anchored along the port road, shops, restaurants and bars abound, this is a lovely area to spend the evenings. There are many sporting activities on the Island which include Golf, Sailing, Diving and Tennis, and in the village kayaking instruction and rental is available.

About Michael Phillips
My wife and I purchased our home in Es Grau, Menorca in 1998, when we retired in 2010 we decided to rent our home to people outside family and friends, with excellent success.
We are now advertising through Owners direct as a way of obtaining clients for our holiday rental program, we are very pleased to share our home with others and its a true testimony of the location and our home with the number of visitors who return to us each year.
We have a web site for our home and would recommend you visit our website for detailed information
Due to the success of our own home it has allowed us to build our inventory and offer beautiful homes in Es Grau like this property.

Why Michael Phillips chose Mahon
Menorca is a beautiful island and Es Grau is the perfect location, it was the location which influenced us most when we purchased.
It is a small, pretty fishing village, which has safe bathing, a sandy beach and good facilities which include a restaurant on the water, a beach bar, Spanish restaurant and bar, a Tapas bar on the harbour and a Spar convenience store it ticked all the boxes for us when we purchase our home
What makes this house unique
There is a good choice of restaurants, bars and a Spar convenience store.
Our clients also have the use of our car and dinghy with a Honda outboard engine
The views of the beach and bay from the roof terrace are fabulous, a great place to enjoy a gin and tonic and watch the sun set.

We had a great holiday in this house, the position is perfect, everything we needed was included in the house.
We love Es Grau and definitely hope to be back.
wonderful holiday accomadation
The accommodation was really comfortable and stylish with effective air conditioning in the bedrooms and smart modern bathrooms off both bedrooms. We loved the balcony and sun roof and spent lovely relaxed evenings sitting out sipping our drinks and enjoying the unbelievable views.
We had little adventures on the boat as we explored the tiny bays in the area, giving us amazing views of the coastline and creating wonderful family memories. We are going back in 2017 and again in18.
A great holiday!
We have just spent a very restful two weeks staying at this homely villa in Es Grau.
We found the area to be very unspoilt and the beach, which is right on your doorstep, very safe and perfect for swimming and boating.
The owners very kindly let you use their very nice car and small boat, which we found added a new dimension to our stay. Mahon is so close and easy to get to, parking near the marina was easy and it was very interesting to walk along the port and see all the yachts and ferries in the harbour.
The villa is well furnished and the three bathrooms nicely done. The roof terrace was perfect to watch the sun come up over breakfast and sunset over supper.
Kitchen is supplied with all you need and it's handy having an extra fridge /freezer downstairs in the laundry room.
The bedrooms are also well furnished, comfortable beds and it's great having the aircons in the bedrooms and lounge. It's also really nice to have the English TV chanels and wifi. Take some extra DVDs if you fancy a movie night - microwave in the kitchen for the popcorn lovers!
There are three nice bars/cafe and one restaurant- right on the water. One supermercat! Love that word ! Ie supermarket - which does fresh baguettes etc everyday.and supplies the basics - the rest you just need to pop into Mahon, if you look carefully you will find some really good supermarkets / shopping centres and even Lidl!
If your looking for night life and hotels - you will not find them here at EsGrau - thank God!
The locals have kept it natural and a haven of peace !

Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Menorca, in the Balearic Islands, is a peaceful, unique natural oasis, packed with contrasts to discover. It is a real paradise, washed by the Mediterranean Sea, that will seduce you with its harmony and diversity.
You can go sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and, of course, scuba diving here. Minorca's stunning sea bed has been a favourite amongst diving enthusiasts for decades. The island transmits a sense of calm, largely on account of its valuable countryside. Minorca has the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designation and a wealth of flora, fauna and landscapes.
Outings on foot, by bike or on horseback, on the marked trails and routes, are a good way to get to know these beautiful surroundings. Most outstanding is the S'Albufera d'Es Grau Nature Reserve, a refuge for many aquatic and migratory birds, which is also one of southern Europe's most important wetland areas.
The island has 216 km of highly varied coastline, from the rugged shores and reddish beaches of the north, to the gentle relief of the south, with golden sandy coves. There are many different options to enjoy sun and sea, whether on broad sandy beaches or at small coves surrounded by pine groves. They all have one thing in common, however: clean, crystal clear waters.
Another of Minorca's attractions is its archaeological and cultural heritage. Discover interesting monumental sites such as the historic old town of Ciutadella, prehistoric remains like the Naveta des Tudons Megalithic site, other prehistoric sites such as those at Mahón, and even small fishing villages that still conserve their ancient traditions.
