The villa has all the modern conveniences you would expect. The furniture is comfortable and stylish and the beds perfect after a long day doing nothing.
There is air conditioning in the ground floor area and we have recently installed a system in 3 bedrooms. The villa is reached by a few steps up from the road. Two of the bedrooms and the sitting room have double doors that open up on to the pool area.
This year we installed a large, 2m satellite dish in order to receive TV programmes from the new BBC satellite.
|Further details outdoors|
The villa is surrounded by well tended gardens which are automatically watered twice a day. The pool is cleaned twice a week. The BBQ is on the front terrace. The house is surrounded by hedges to give privacy.
We take a 25% deposit on booking and the remainder is due 8 weeks prior to travel.
About this location
The Balearic Islands region
Menorca is a registered biosphere and as such developers are limited as to what they can build. Near the villa there is a natural park that attracts a diverse range of birds and wildlife. Menorca has more sandy beaches than any of the Balearic islands and is ideal for families.
The night life is also good and Mahon is buzzing during the evenings. The island was occupied by British for around 100 years and occasionally by the French. The architecture of these two great powers is noticeable on the island. For example the town of San Lluis was built by the French whereas Mahon has a colonial fel.
The harbour of Mahon is supposedly the second biggest natural harbour in the world. This did not escape Nelson's eye and he based the Mediterranean fleet there for many years. There is so much to do in Menorca both on water and on land. It's a paradise to be enjoyed.
Cala Llonga, otherwise known as 'the place where millionaires live', is an exclusive urbanisation on the far side of the port opposite Mahon. Two years ago we got our first supermarket which stocks almost everything you could want. You can walk there but driving is better if you are loading up on the week's shop. About a kilometre away is the fort of La Mola.
This was originally built by the British to protect the island from attack. For a short time it was occupied by the French until the British took it back again. You have to take time out to visit it as there is so much history to be enjoyed. A recent episode of Hornblower was shot there.
Cala Llonga has its own harbour filled with expensive sea-going yachts. If you have the experience we will give you access to our small 8 HP rib which can fit in the boot of a car and be launched easily a few hundred metres from the villa.

"Fantastic, a home away"
We were two families and we enjoyed a fantastic week. Everything was as expected and we didn't find any surprise or filthy finding. Bedrooms were confortable, bathrooms were new, the kitchen was good provided and the pool area was superb. We couldn't try the boat. Highly recomended.

"Perfect for a Family Holiday"
This was the first time our extended family has been all together in some 14 years, and the villa was perfect! The pool and outside seating area provided us the most beautiful setting each evening for our family meals. We requested extra items for our grandbaby and the owner and agency were very accommodating. The decor was lovely and the beds were very comfortable.
Overall a fabulous find!
