About Carl Fullaway

My name is Carl

I have a gorgeous wife Louise and two children who keep me busy.

As a result the villa is equipped to be family friendly.

They love going out to the villa, using the swimming pool and enjoying the beaches and restaurants in Menorca.

Carl Fullaway purchased this villa in 2008

Why Carl Fullaway chose S'Algar

We love going back to S'Algar and Menorca we find it such a lovely island and not too commercialised.

Louise always used to go on holiday as a child to S'Algar and so has fond memories of this part of Menorca.

I enjoy diving and there is an excellent Dive club (probably the best on the island - S'Algar Diving) just a few minutes walk from the villa.

There is an amazing beach just a few minutes drive or 15 minutes walk and some great restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

The property is close to the sea with a fantastic sea view from the roof terrace. A few minutes walk into the village centre are the local shops and a great place to go swimming or snorkelling near the Dive centre.

I think our favourite feature of the villa is the large private swimming pool.

S'Algar is not too far from Mahon which is particularly good to visit on market days.

The villa lives up to its name as you may occasionally spot a tortoise or two roaming around the garden.

Fantastic home from home villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family consisting of myself and my husband, my parents and our two young children for a week at the start of September. We had an absolutely fabulous time in the villa. It was big and spacious and we all had plenty of room.

It really is a home from home, was clean and had everything that we could have needed for our weeks stay. If you are expecting luxury and clean lines then this would not be for you. It was perfect for us though. The pool was huge and our kids loved it although it was very cold for me! We ate outside in the evenings when we could (weather was very changable all week) but we could easily fit inside too. Beds were comfortable and the showers pressure was good and enough hot water to cater for all of us.

The roof terrace was lovely although we did not really have a chance to use it other than to pop up to look at the views. We actually did not spend alot of time at the villa as we were either at the beach or exploring the island which is one of our favourites.

Area was very quiet which is how we like it. No noisy hotels nearby and you had to have a car which we did. Close to the airport so easy to get to. Carl was great to liaise with at all stages and really helpful, even organising it for us to be able to stay a little later on our last day before our flight. The only downside to the villa for us was the amount of ants! Of course we know that there will be ants but even though we cleaned thouroughly after every meal etc they were everywhere! We put our bread in the bread bin to dicover it absolutely covered the next day inside the packaging. We had to utilise alot of zip lock bags for all the food!! It was a bit annoying but something we coped with and it has not put me off still giving the villa 5 stars.

All in all would we stay in Carls villa again? YES absolutely! Fabulous place and we would love to stay again the furture. Thank you Carl for everything :-)

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a great time. I am very sorry you had such a problem with ants. There isn't normally a problem like that, when we have stayed at the villa. I will get on to it right away and mention it to our management company to try and prevent further issues. I am glad it did not deter you having a great holiday. Kind regards Carl Fullaway.

Lovely location with a great pool and surrounding gardens. The roof terrace is fabulous for sitting and watching the boats out at sea. If you are looking for somewhere peaceful then this is perfect. Thank you Carl and family for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

Perfect family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa, perfect location, lovely pool and garden. Felt like a home from home, it's really well equipped and for us as 2 families with 4 children age 6 and under it was ideal. We just wished we could have stayed longer than a week! We will definitely be booking to come back again soon!

Private & relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Our mixed age group of eight had a wonderful time in this comfortable spacious villa. Lots of room inside and out where we could gather together or have some quiet space.

Everything we needed was in this well equipped villa.

Our party included two small children who settled well with plenty of toys and a beautiful pool to enjoy, they also enjoyed visiting the nearby hotel mini disco.

S,Algar is A very relaxing place to stay with enough to keep everyone busy and also within walking distance of a picturesque, safe beach with a welcoming beach hotel/restaurant .

Hopefully we will return and enjoy again sometime.

Car: not necessary


It is approximately a five minute walk to the village where there is an area for snorkelling and swimming in the sea. There is also S'Algar Diving centre which is probably the best on the island if you fancied trying some scuba diving.

15 minute walk to Alcafar beach which is idyllic for children


The nearest airport is the Aeroport de Menorca in Mahon and is about a 20-25 minute drive. Car hire recommended but not essential.


Mahon is the capitol of Menorca and is about a 20 minute drive from S'Algar. There is a bus service from S'Algar to Mahon. It is great to visit especially on market days.

Monte Toro which is the highest point in Menorca which has a gift shop and great views of the island, it is about a 45 minute drive.

Further Details:

Menorca is surrounded with lovely beaches to visit and many great restaurants and cafes.

We are located very close to S'Algar Diving, probably the best diving club on the island, so great if you like to go snorkelling or scuba diving.

There is a great network of cycle paths if you enjoy cycling and bike hire is readily available.

Eating out in S'Algar

There are 2 restaurants in the village centre (El Pirata and Isobel Reina) which are really friendly and serve great food. If you want something a bit different there is Asia restaurant near the big San Lluis Hotel. Up the top of the hill is Las Palmeras which are good for pizza and steak.

There is also a fabulous bakery serving fresh cakes and coffee.

S'Algar also has several gift shops, local supermarkets, car hire etc.
