The Balearic Islands region
Minorca is for many the most beautiful and certainly the least spoilt of the Balearic Islands. In fact it was declared a Biosphere Reserve back in 1993 because of its unspoilt beaches and traditional way of life. The beaches are amongst the most beautiful in the world with white sands and crystal clear turquoise-coloured waters and there's space to lay your towel! In the spring and autumn there are many wonderful walks you can enjoy as well.
It enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with hot dry and sunny summers with the sea temperature up to nearly 80º in August and still good to swim in at the end of October.
There are many places of interest: Monte Toro the only mountain with it's breathtaking views and lovely church, the impressive and beautiful Mahon port the second largest natural harbour in the world, the old capital Ciutadella is particularly beautiful, there are unique prehistoric monuments, traditional fishing and countryside villages, massive fortresses and much more.
You can go sailing or wind surfing in Fornells bay, there's excellent scuba diving in the clear waters, horse riding, there are several water parks and go-kart tracks and a variety of boat trips. The jeep safari is a fun way to explore the interior.
All through the summer each town celebrates festivals in which the magnificent local horses are the stars. You can also try the local gastronomical delights: cheese, spicy sausage (sobresada) and pastries.
Cala n Porter
Cala'n Porter has been a popular destination with tourists for many years. It boasts a beautiful and safe beach in the cove 3 minutes drive or a 10-15 minute walk down from the villa. There are a good variety of restaurants and bars in the centre, some with live music.
2 minutes walk from the villa there's a fantastic view along the south coast from the cliff top. If you like walking, the countryside is right by the villa and you can walk to the next cove along, Calas Coves where there are nearly 100 caves dotted into the cliffs.
Just 5 minutes walk away is perhaps the world's most beautiful discoteque, the Caves of Xoroi, which are set in a cave half way down the cliffs and overlooking the sea. However the disco is completely out of ear-shot.
The centre with supermarkets, restaurants, bars with live entertainment, cash-points and car-hire is a 10 minutes stroll from the villa.
The nearest town is Alaior which is one of the prettiest towns of the island. It's a hill town with charming narrow streets dominated by an old church. In the summer build up to its festivals there are street markets and live music and a very friendly atmosphere.
Also at easy reach is the capital Mahon, well worth visiting for it's shopping and above all its harbour.

"Excellent villa facilities"
Just returned from a weeks holiday with 5 children and 3 adults! Excellent facilities at the villa and a service second to none provided by Francis and his wife even prior to our arrival! Our minibus was organised for us and the villa was a "home from home"!
The pool was maintained fully by Francis and despite being cold, we all loved spending our days in it!
Nothing was too much trouble for Francis and the communication before, during and after our holiday was excellent, making the whole holiday stress free!
Thank you Francis for helping us to make this holiday a memorable one!

"Peaceful, tranquil villa with superb garden and pool area."
Private and peaceful Villa, whose garden and pool area are a major feature.
The sunsets as viewed from the Villa Rooftop were amazing.
The steps around the garden a pool area may not suit very young children or senior citizens.

"Had the most wonderful holiday,"
We had a fantastic holiday. The villa was brilliant for myself , my husband our 3 children and my mother in law. There is plenty of room, comfortable lounge, 2 bathrooms, very well equipped kitchen and a lovely deep pool and very pretty gardens. It's in a very peaceful area but not far from calan porter centre with plenty of reasonably priced restaurants. The beach is beautiful. Francis gave us lots of info for places to visit. Fiesta in alaior was fabulous with the menorcan horses. Plenty of beautiful beaches, lovely village of fornells. We hadn't visited Menorca before and found we loved the fact it is so small that nothing is far away. Would recommend hiring a car to get out and about as so many lovely places to go. Having said that though calan porter has everything you need for a relaxing pool/ beach holiday.
