Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Villa with Sea Views.

Refurbished in 2015, our 4 Bedroom 3 bathroom modern Villa sleeps 9 and is just 100 metres from the sea. The high quality of the furniture, fittings and specification has achieved the top rental rating.

Our Villa enjoys lovely views of The Bay and Sa Olla swimming platforms.

Binissafúller itself is a well established quiet residential coastal hamlet with most gardens having mature trees and high hedges. This provides both privacy and a Rural feel by the sea. Despite this quiet private location there are still shops and 3 excellent restaurants within a 10 minute walk.

We are at the end of a 5 house cul-de-sac just 50m from the sea front road.

First impressions as you enter the tall white gates, is of 2 split levels of lawns and terraces that elevate the house to look over the 2 in front, giving lovely sea views. Secondly the 2.2m high Laurel Hedges give complete privacy from the 3 neighbours. Finally that the 12m x 4m pool is a proper swimming pool, with safe 1m wide side steps down into it. The classical looking Pergola with its 10 place Oak table for dining and the outdoor sitting area for drinks and chilling, are perfect for Menorcan outdoor living.

Opening the front door, it is a surprise to find a staircase to a cleverly designed second storey in the roof. Going up you find The Master Bedroom with en-suite shower room. The wow factor is the roof terrace, through double patio doors, with spectacular panoramic Sea Views over Binissafuller Bay. Facing South West the Sunsets are superb from here.

Back to The Entrance again:- On The Right as you come in are a King size double and a twin bedroom with full shared family bathroom in between:- On The Left takes you through double doors into the open plan Living Room, Dining Area and fully fitted Kitchen with an Oak Bar:-

Straight on from the front door leads to the largest Family Bedroom, that sleeps 3, with an en-suite Bathroom. Facing East It also has its own sun terrace, large awning and table for up to 6 with Sea Views.

Outside Living:- Patio doors lead from The Living Room seating 9 to The covered terrace. This has a comfortable sitting area for 8, with BBQ, coffee table, sofa and chairs. Also at this level is The Swimming Pool with a Sunlounger Terrace, outside WC with wash hand basin and incorporated shower and a small lawn for additional sunbathing space.

Down 3 Steps is the lower Terrace and another lawn. Here we have a classical looking Pergola (20 sq m) that can seat 10 around a beautiful Oak Table. Additional shade is also provided by a large 4 sq m Sun Awning. The lawn is ideal for games and sports. We provide coits and other games equipment and children’s toys for the pool. There are 5 wooden sunloungers and 3 off road car parking spaces

Using the experience of more than 34 years of living on Menorca, I have tried to design this Villa to maximise enjoyment of The Menorcan lifestyle, in this perfect of locations. Please enjoy it as your home away from home. We hope you will love it as much as we do.

About Rebecca

I fell in love with Menorca at Mahon Fiestas de Gracia on September 9th 1983. My new bride and I had sailed from the UK and just arrived in the Magnificent Mahon Harbour. We followed the sound of a brass band and a huge street party and were astonished to see stallions charging into a crowd and rearing up on hind legs with manes flying. The famous Jaleo. There and then we decided to start a new life here with Menorca Farmhouse Activity Holidays later becoming Menorca Cruising School. On selling my School I designed and built my own country home " Les Arcs " near Torret, Sant Lluis in 2002.

The love affair with Menorca continues to this day with my children educated here and Rebecca back here after 10 years in the charity field.

Now retired and living by the sea, I am very happy to make our new home, your home away from home, while my partner and I are off sailing. I feel sure you will love this very special villa. Enjoy!!

Rebecca purchased this villa in 2015

Why Rebecca chose Sant Lluís

I have spent much of my life either working on The Sea or living alongside it. Therefore I always new that I would live by the sea in my retirement. Binissafuller is my perfect location in Menorca with its small boat harbour and famous restaurant/ yacht club.

Beautifully sheltered and private, The Villa overlooks the sea, but is not blasted by it. The magnificent Cami de Cavalls, coastal footpath, passes 50 metres in front of the villa and provides easy access to beaches both east and west. In short the perfect location for you to enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa layout (4bed 3bath) with its large pool, private gardens and close proximity to the sea is ideal for two families, of a max 9, or 8, if adults only

The 12m pool is longer than most similar villas' and being just 100m from The Sea swimming platforms of Sa Olla Bay, you can have the best of both swimming worlds.

The Classic large Pergola is ideal for keeping cool while watching the children in the pool.

Finally complete privacy from neighbours is a joy for skinny dipping amply protected by the magnificent Laurel Hedge.

However what made me fall in love with this Villa is its magnificent sea views and quiet peacefull setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had an amazing time staying at the villa this summer. It's perfect in every aspect, comfort, amenities and location!

As a family of 6 with 2 young children the villa met all of our needs and there were lots of extra touches to help us feel like we were home from home.



From our initial enquiry, through the whole booking process and during our stay at the villa, Rebecca could not have been more helpful and accommodating



The villa is spacious and well equipped with everything you need for a family holiday. We spent most of our time outside around the pool, a lovely area to play with the kids and also relax. The pergola and dining area was perfect for long lunches and barbecued dinners!



As mentioned previously the location is perfect. We enjoyed walking to the cove to swim and having a drink at Bar Nautico - both a few minutes walk away and also strolling to the Fishing village for a coffee, icecream or evening meal. Lovely not to have to get in the car all the time!

COAST and BEACHES

Our Villa is just 100m to the sea shore where there are concreted swimming platforms and access ladders. The same distance away is the small boat ( up to 6m) harbour and it's delightful restaurant.. The nearest sandy beach is just a 12 minute .walk along the coastal footpath ( "Cami de Cavalls) to Binisafua Playa, set in a pretty little cove bordered by a few small lime washed fisherman's cottages. The popular Binibequer beach is a 20 minute walk east along the coast or 4 minute drive with its famous beach bar/ restaurant owned by Santi. Great family beach with pedalos' etc for hire.

RESTAURANTS

There are four excellent restaurants just a short walk from The Villa:-

THE CLUB NAUTICO and bar. 2 minute walk west.

SA MUSCLERA. 5 minute walk east along The Cami de Cavalls to Binibequer Nou.

LA BOYERA. 5 minute walk north east. Great Thai.

EL TXOKO 12 minute walk to Binissafuller Playa along The Cami de Cavalls.

All four are highly recommended. Full details in our house book.

TRAVEL

Mahon airport is only a 15 minute drive from the house. Car hire is not essential, but highly recommended to explore all those off the beaten track places, beaches, Talayotic Bronze Age settlements and much more. (See my house book)

Distances:

The nearest village of Sant Lluis ( built by the French in 1756) is delightful and only a 6 minute drive from the house. Plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from with large sport centre for the 2000 population. The Capital Mahon (Mao in Menorquin) is just 15 minute drive with its spectacular harbour. (2nd largest in the world). If you like your history try The Mahon Museum and Casa Oliver and the beautiful Georgian town houses. The old Capital of Cuitadela one hour away is a must.

Further Details:

We have a fine supermarket just 4 minutes drive from the house called Sa Botiga, (Waitrose like) and still further choice in Sant Lluis of banks and restaurants etc.

There is a very large Waterpark at Punta Prima just 6 minute drive to the S.East corner of Menorca. Slightly further on is S'Algar where you can enjoy diving and water sports. My house book contains comprehensive information on places of interest, historical sites and leisure activities.

Cozy and comfortable house in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need to enjoy a great holiday. The outside space is great. We used the barbecue and the pool a lot. The inside is well equipped and comfortable. But for me the best is that is right on top of the Binisafuller Olla, which is my favourite place to swim in Menorca, and maybe in the world!

We are looking forward to coming back another year.

Lovely villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped villa, perfect for our group of 8 including a toddler. Pool was a big highlight for us as it was big enough for us all to enjoy. Great location close to restaurants and lovely coves and beaches within short drives. Only negative points are the lack of air con in twin bedroom and the beds are all on the hard side. But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful Family Villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Menorca. The villa, facilities and location were fantastic. there were a few niggles which I will point out but I should emphasise that there are so many more plus points than negative to this villa. Firstly we understood from the guest book in the villa that we were to have our towels changed midway through our weeks holiday but this did not materialise. Also we phoned the Management company after 3 days to report a wasps nest above the french doors. Its wasn't large but we had two small children and we used that doorway constantly. They said they would send someone but again know one came. The double beds downstairs were very uncomfortable and could do with a change of mattress or some toppers. There were 6 adults in our party but there were only 4 sunbeds which I think as the villa can sleep 9 could do with at least 2 more. Taking all that into consideration, we had a fantastic holiday and we can't thank the owner enough for allowing us the use of this beautiful villa.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed Villa Eol and its location so much. Thank you for your suggestions for improvements. I decided to limit the number of solid wooden sun beds to 5 because of terrace space , but will add two new Thai style futons for sunbathing on the lawns. All the mattresses are of the highest quality and the downstairs king size bedroom is the one I sleep in. Unfortunately it is not possible to cover all tastes between soft and hard so have simply gone for top quality. As stated on our web page we change bedding and towels weekly. Sorry about the wasps nest delay. I am afraid we are in the hands of The Town Hall specialists on that one. I do hope you enjoyed yourself enough to return again.

A beautiful property in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in Aug 2016, a party of 6 including 2 children. The property itself was spacious, very homely, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It really felt like a home away from home. We all really enjoyed the swimming pool and using the outdoor seating area for meals and loved the 'outdoor living area' near the BBQ - we spent hours there in the evenings chatting and relaxing. The location is very special and we had a couple of really enjoyable meals in the restaurant just a 2 minute walk from the property. In addition, we found Rebecca to be extremely helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this property.

Beautiful villa in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The villa is in a fab location, just set back from the main coastal road, very quiet and not overlooked. Turn right out of C/Eol and follow the costal path (at the end of the road) to the small bay of Binisafuller. Turn left and follow the sign to great swimming off the rocks. Turn left and follow the road to the hotel then cut through to Binebeca Vell where you will find restaurants, a bar and 2 supermarkets.

We particularly enjoyed eating at the Club Nautico (nearest to the villa), the Bini Inn and Thai Restaurants in Binebeca. If you have a car Es Castell is a 15 minute drive away with some lovely restaurants around the harbour at Cales Fonts.

The villa itself is well equipped, the pool is large with the great advantage of being salt water which was much kinder to skin. A few more sun-beds would be beneficial as 4 between 7 of us was not enough at times. The outside chairs were also taken away for repainting during our stay so we only had space for 4 to sit outside. The shaded area for eating was great although the steps could be quite dangerous for the very young or elderly. Inside the kitchen and living room were like a home from home with coffee machine, toaster, tv etc. Unfortunately we couldn't use the BBQ as it appeared to have not been cleaned in a long time.

Inside, we were disappointed to find out that only 2 of the 4 bedrooms had air-conditioning, this was not stated in the villa information. The large room at the back and the twin got very hot at night and we had to ask for an additional fan to use in the twin which was provided, air conditioning in all the bedrooms would be beneficial. Also, having small doubles in the bedrooms made it quite tricky for our party as we had 3 teens so 2 had to share a double bed, twin beds would seem more practical for mixed family groups.

We had a couple of issues during our stay which were addressed very quickly by Rebecca and Real Care. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our mixed family group had a very relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah and David, Thank you so much for your review. Rebecca and I really appreciate the time you have taken over your constructive suggestions to improve everyones stay in my home. I have decided to carry out the following, which I believe will address all of your suggestions plus a few ideas of our own:- A) 2 more sun loungers. B) stainless steel and Oak handrails for the steps to the pergola terrace and front door. C) new stainless steel Barbeque grill. D) air conditioning in the large family bedroom. E) replace the standard double bed with new twin beds in the large family room. Rebecca and I do hope that you will be our guests again some time in the future. Kind Regards, MIchael
