Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Villa Can Victor occupies a wonderful sea front position in the resort of Cala Blanes just outside Ciutadella, offering magnificent views across the horizon. This bright family villa has a neat enclosed gated garden overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. This location is famous for having the best sunsets on Menorca and what better way to enjoy them than from your own outdoor heated hot tub.
There is a large covered terrace with dining furniture to enjoy al-fresco dining with barbecue, and a table-tennis table will provide endless hours of holiday fun. The sea views are breath-taking from this area and will stay with you forever. The gardens are child friendly with a furnished sun bathing patio and swimming pool facing the sea.
The villa itself is light and bright. Two of the air-conditioned bedrooms are situated on the ground floor and share a shower bathroom and one has patio doors. The triple bedroom on the first floor has an en-suite bathroom and ideal for a couple with a young child.
Situated on the west coast of the island, Ciutadella is a stylish place to visit that is well known for sumptuous fish restaurants serving the local catch of the day.
Ciutadella was Menorca's original capital and the city oozes history with many sites to visit. Of particular note is Castell Sant Nicolas, a 17th century defence tower now used as an exhibition gallery (and also a beautiful vantage point for watching the sun set). Ciutadella's catedral is another stunning building, originally a mosque then rebuilt in 1287 when Alfonso III defeated the Moors and claimed Menorca for christianity. Wherever you go - do it slowly! Ciutadella is the hub of Menorca's café society, so take time to sit, relax and watch the world go by. The large beach resort of Cala Blanes is only a five minute drive away.

The Menorca region
Holiday Villas in Menorca
Menorca, the second largest of the Balearic Islands, offers visitors a lot. Staying in villas in Menorca means enjoying the unspoilt beauty of one of the most tranquil and least built-up island in the Mediterranean. If you just want to get away from it all, then here is the place to do it. You can enjoy isolation or immerse yourself in the culture of the island, untouched by the mass tourism that affects some of Menorca's neighbours.
When it comes to beaches, Menorca is a holiday maker's paradise. The island has as many beaches as Majorca and Ibiza combined, even though Majorca is much larger than it. Our villas in Cala Galdana and villas in Cala Blanca are perfect examples of what you can expect to find throughout Menorca's coast. Temperatures between April and December are regularly above 15°C, and the summer months are wonderfully dry. As always, it's not just quantity that is important, but quality too, and Menorca's numerous beaches are also some of the best you'll find. Cala Pregonda is particularly beautiful, whilst Son Bou stretches for around 2.5km. It's also easy to find space away from the crowds, and you can expect to enjoy beaches without having to fight for a spot on the sand.
If you can tear yourself away from the beach, you'll find that Minorca offers some amazing experiences to those who seek them out. The island's capital, Maó, holds the second largest natural deep water harbour in the world, and glass-bottomed boats offer regular cruises around it, giving you a chance to see some of the wildlife that fills the waters for yourself. Our villas in Mahon offer you another chance to experience a historic port town with its own monuments and sights of interest.
Wildlife can easily become a theme of your holiday; the entire island is a European Biological Reserve and a UNESCO Biosphere Reverse, and over 75% of the island's land is protected from heavy development. You can find rare birds and other species, or see some of the Mediterranean's last turtles around the shore. The island also has a wonderful variety of flowers, including plenty of orchids and number of flowers you'll only find on islands like Menorca.
If you're eating out during your stay in a villa in Menorca, expect to find no shortage of sea food on the menu, all of it wonderfully prepared and cooked. You can also find plenty of restaurants that make the most of Minorca's wonderful landscape, offering views across some of the island's best vistas from the alfresco dining terraces. Our villas in Cala'N Bosch are an excellent choice if you're interested in sampling some of Menorca's best food during your stay.
The island is bursting with history. Maó's harbour has been fought over again and again, and been home to numerous fleets. The French, British, Spanish, Romans and Berbers have all claimed it at one time or another, and the rest of the island with it. It was a superb place to station a fleet that kept it safe from any storms and was easily defendable, but also offered excellent access to the rest of the Mediterranean. There are also the Taulas, T-shaped stone formations which were created millennia ago for an unknown purpose.
One of the holdovers from the British period of rule is Minorcan Gin, a gin distilled from a juniper-based spirit. It's popular and can be found all over the island, especially as Pomada, a mix of the gin with bitter lemon, and is drunk throughout the day by locals.
Minorca is a great place for a family holiday, as the quieter, more peaceful surroundings are perfect for children and parents alike. Despite the idyllic surroundings, you won't run out of things to do or place to explore whilst staying in a villa in Menorca.
Cala 'n Blanes
Cala En Blanes lies in the rocky west coast of Minorca five kilometres west of Cuitadella. Transfer time from the airport is between one and one and a quarter hours. Cala n Blanes is considered to be one of the best beaches on the west coast of the island. It is a lively resort by Minorcan standards and very popular with the British.
Cala En Blanes, on the western tip of Minorca, was once a deserted coastline of tiny coves and deep rocky inlets. Together with its neighbours Cala n Forcat and Los Delphines, it is one of Minorca's most recent resorts. Constructed in the 1980s to accommodate the increasing numbers of visitors to this popular island, these three resorts have almost merged into one. Pine trees and palms line the fine sandy beach which slopes very gently into the clearest of water. The craggy rocks to the sides shelter the cove from wind so the sea is also very calm. Conditions are perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving. There is a diving centre in the area which caters for both novice and experienced divers.
A mini train runs between Cala En Blanes and the neighbouring resorts. The resort has a number of themed bars aimed at British holiday maker. There is a water park in neighbouring CalaE n Forcat, mainly suited to younger children as the flumes are rather less than death defying. There is also a mini golf course. Cala En Blanes is essentially a family resort where people go to relax, soak up the sun and enjoy bathing in warm shallow waters. Take a short bus ride to Cuitadella, the former capital, and enjoy the beauty of the architecture reflecting the glory of its past.
