The Balearic Islands region
The magical Mediterranean Island of Menorca (Minorca) has over 120 beaches, some of them being the most beautiful in Europe. Most are unspoiled and they are to be be found in every nook and cranny of the coastline of an island only 30 miles by 12. Some are long stretches of fine sand, others are sheltered bays or coves. The sea is of the clearest blue with an unmatchable clarity and with the most agreeable of temperatures which make it a paradise for water sports enthusiasts, or for those just lounging and chilling out.
During the year there is an average of 300 days of sunshine with an average of 5 hours a day in winter and more than 10 hours a day in summer.
For those interested in history and culture there is much to see and do, while for lovers of good food and wine there are some excellent local restaurants offering very reasonably priced meals and the waterside cave bars in Es Castell (5 min's drive) enable you to soak up the atmosphere. For those on a budget I provide a guide for my tenants of local restaurants to eat (3 courses) for less than 11 Euros (£8) (including wine)!
Es Castell is a popular fishing village just five mins drive from the villa. There is an abundance of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and pockets. The harbour is particularly attractive and atmospheric, and the cave bars and restaurants really come alive in the evening.
The villa is situated in Son Vilar, a quiet residential village on the outskirts of the popular Mahon and Es Castell, and is close to amenities, superb restaurants and bars, and a short drive to gorgeous beaches. An ideal base for families, couples, or groups of friends seeking a villa holiday on this lovely Island. It is fully equipped (including Satellite FreeSat TV), and all linen is supplied and laundered weekly. A hire car can be arranged direct in Menorca with a good discount for my tenants.

"Perfect base for south Menorcan break"
The villa is very well equipped and full of charm. Ideally situated between Mahon and Es Castell and only a short drive to numerous top quality beaches the location is excellent. Situated in a quiet cul de sac and surrounded by mature trees it is both peaceful and private allowing you to enjoy the outdoor space to the full. The up front information and welcome pack provided by Ian surpasses anything that we have comes across before and the rental cost is very competitive. All in all a really good choice!.

This was our 2nd stay at this villa and as people have previously said it is in a perfect location peace and quiet but hustle and bustle just a short walk away.Although improvements have been made out… More
I welcome critical reviews as it helps to maintain the high standard that has previously been the case. I have been in contact with the local management team that have been looking after the villa for some years. It seems that due to recent staff illness my villa has had temporary new cleaners (who obviously smoke). These will be replaced, and the villa will have a thorough clean on the next changeover day.
The comment regarding kitchen crockery and utensils is a bit of a mystery as I personally purchased new high quality replacements only 4 months ago. I will get this checked, again on the next changeover, and if there have been breakages, then these will be replaced immediately.

“Yet another visit to this fantastic villa - our sixth time! There are many things which make this particular villa very special. Firstly, its location is ideal. It is located in a small quiet village on the east side of the island, close to the capital Mahon and within walking distance of the lovely town of Es Castell. Both Mahon and Es Castell offer very good eating places - the harbour front at Mahon has a promenade of restaurants of all types – whilst in Es Castell and nearby Cala Font /Cala Cobb you can find some lovely typical Spanish eateries. The villa is situated in a quiet residential area, surrounded by other Spanish and some English residents . You live here as the Spanish do, within their community as opposed to being within a holiday complex with other holiday makers. However, what makes this villa really special is the owner's attention to detail both inside and outside. Inside it is equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday and even, if needed, DVD's and satellite television in English. The kitchen is well stocked and the welcome pack is considerable. The villa is very clean and is well maintained. Outside, within its own walled garden, with its own private driveway, is the lovely pool, designed with roman steps which makes getting in or out much easier. This makes it ideal for both young and old, and when very hot allows you sit in the pool with a glass on the side – so relaxing!!! The well stocked garden is visited by a local gardener and the pool is regularly maintained. The veranda is a lovely place to be during the evening to just sit and relax with a glass or two. Admittedly you don't have a view of the sea, but be assured you have the peace and quiet which more than makes up for the lack of view. We feel that a car is essential whilst staying at this villa though it is only a short walk to the bus route into Mahon. This villa is a must!!!”

"Great Villa fully equipped in a location to suit most people for staying in or going out."
5th stay at this villa in 3 years so my opinion speaks for itself really. We had a car which is a good idea to get the best out of Menorca but a 15 to 20 minute walk(5 mins in a car) in either direction takes you to Mahon harbour or Es Castell, both of which are lovely with an abundance of places to eat and drink, staff are always happy to call cabs if we didn't fancy walking back( 5 or 6 euros). The villa itself is also perfect for staying in, with nice pool and BBQ area we often make the most of this as an option. Never had any reasons to complain as everything is always as it should be and shall be booking again.

"Ideal villa in ideal Location"
Have stayed here several times and keep returning. The villa is in a small residential area which means it is not overrun with tourists. It is quiet and in an ideal location as one is able to walk (20 mins) both into Mahon and Es Castell.
The villa itself provides everything one could possibly need including air conditioning in all three bedrooms which is invaluable, Amenities in the villa are second to none as also provided are a tv, cd player, radio, washing machine, fridge/freezer etc.. A substantial welcome pack is also provided dor your arrival.
The outside area is superb with a lovely pool, sunbeds and 4 parasols for escaping the sun, two at each end of the villa.
Being close to Mahon port and Cala's Fons at Es Castell is a real bonus as both locations are so interesting and vibrant, especially during the evenings when visits to the many excellent restaurants are not to be missed. However, if you prefer to eat in, this is not a problem with a well equipped kitchen and a great barbeque near the pool.
My wife and I would highly recommend this villa and There is no doubt that we shall be returning there in 2012.

"Fantastic Villa that we will return to again and again."
A lovely, lovely Villa. This is our 3rd visit and we are already booking for next year. In a quiet area and within walking distance to both Mahan and Es Castell and the shops and restaurants. A home from home with a lovely pool and setting. Beautifully clean and equipped. Large screen Television where we were able to watch the Nadel and Murray matches. The owners are really lovely and although we have never met them, nothing is too much trouble for them. The information package is the best I have ever seen. We have been visiting Menorca for over 20 years and wish we had found this Villa earlier.
We hire a car, which the owner arranges for you and visit all the places in Menorca that we have grown to love. I would not hesitate to recommend this Villa whether you are a couple or a family and you may find yourselves, like us, returning again and again.
