Villa 23 - Yorkshire Rose
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
A delightfully, spacious, detached 4 bedroom and 4 bathroom villa, with private swimming pool, in the lovely resort of S'Algar
The villa has 3 bedrooms on the ground floor, each with patio doors directly out to the pool area. There are 2 twin rooms, each with its own adjacent bathroom; one includes separate shower and bath, whilst the other is a shower room. The third bedroom, on the ground floor, is a double with en-suite shower room. The fourth bedroom is located at the front of the property, between the ground and first floor levels; it is also a double bed with an en-suite bathroom (including separate shower and bath). All bedrooms are fitted with overhead fans and have ample wardrobe space.
The open plan dining and living space is on the first floor, adjacent to the kitchen. Patio doors lead to an undercover balcony terrace. In the living area: there is a widescreen TV and DVD player (large collection of DVD's), a radio/CD/USB/iPod player, provided for your entertainment. Unfortunately, due to adjustments made to the UK TV Satelite (in early 2014) following the decision by the BBC to prevent none UK TV License payers from receiving BBC transmissions - the TV can no longer receive UK Freeview channels. However, Sky channels, including sports and movies are available.
The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, microwave, ceramic hob, washing machine, small dishwasher and American fridge freezer with icemaker and water dispenser.
Situated in a quiet lane, with the pool and barbeque terraces to the rear, the villa is very private. The 8x4m pool has offset steps at the shallow end and underwater lighting for safe bathing after dark. There are ample sun beds to take advantage of both sun and shade. The traditional Menorcan chimney barbeque is on a large paved terrace adjacent to the pool, just waiting for you to cook up a wonderful outdoor feast.
The villa is less than 3-minutes walk to the sea front and the S'Algar Hotel. A 5-minute stroll (400 meters) will bring you to a selection of shops, restaurants and a supermarket. The hotels in the resort also admit non-residents to their restaurants and entertainment evenings.
S'Algar is on the South East Coast and is one of the best-kept resorts in Menorca. It is an ideal base whether you prefer a relaxing holiday or choose to be more active. A variety of pursuits are close by and these include scuba diving, bowling, tennis, parascending and swimming. There are interesting walks along the coast, one of which will take you to the historic cove at Alcafar.
Car hire is not essential at this villa but we recommend it to allow you to see more of this beautiful island.

The Balearic Islands region
Menorca is the most northern, and second largest of the Balearic Islands, situated only 34km (21 miles) from Mallorca. The island of Menorca is one of the quieter Balearic Islands, it's a wonderful destination for a family holiday, with its many beautiful and unspoilt beaches - you may be surprised to learn the island has almost as many beaches as Mallorca and Ibiza combined.
The north coast of Menorca is rocky and rough, with sleepy fishing villages dotted along it. In contrast, the south coast is full of secluded coves, with fine, golden sand, sheltered by cliffs, and where a number of quiet, peaceful holiday resorts have developed. Menorca has generally managed to escape the effects of package holidays, and the island's small towns and villages offer a quiet and relaxing holiday.
Mahon (the capital) is only 8km north of S'Algar, it is situated at the end of an enormous natural harbour, on the eastern side of the island. The town is well worth a visit, (best explored on foot) there are shops, cafes and restaurants, and an outdoor market, twice a week, in the main square (Placa de s'Esplanada).
Ciudadella (the former capital) is situated at the opposite end of the island. Ciudadela is home to a cathedral, partly dating from the 14th century, and also boasts several elegant palaces and medieval churches.
Sant Lluis, (approx 4km south of Mahon), is the nearest working town/village to the holiday resort of S'Algar, (villa location). Sant Lluis is approx 4km (10 minute drive) from S'Algar, and is where you will find the nearest banks/ATMs, Chemists and Tobacconists. Just outside Sant Luis centre, there are a few shops with a large supermarket - recommended for your large grocery shop, if you have a car.
S'Algar Resort is situated on the south east coast of the island; it is a small purpose built resort which is ideal for those seeking a quiet, relaxing holiday. However, it is important to point out that S'Algar does not have a beach, although there is access to go swimming in the sea via a number of steps along the rocks. A sand beach can be found in the cove of Alcafar, only a 15-minute stroll along the coast.
The pretty cove at Alcafar is accessible by walking around the coastline (1km) or by a 5-minute car ride (2.5km). Punta Prima (6km) and Binibeca (7.5km) beaches are only a short drive away and the working village of Sant Lluis is only a few minutes drive and to which there is a regular bus service. This bus service continues to the Capital City of Mahon (Maó).
S'Algar offers a number of amenities including a small supermarket, bakers, newsagents / souvenir shops and a selection of bars, restaurants and cafes for your refreshment, all within 400 meters of the villa.
For the more energetic, there are a good number of activities available in the resort - there is a diving school, which offers a wide range of water sports including scuba diving, windsurfing, jet skiing and water skiing. Tennis, horse riding, archery and bowls are also available, many of which can be found at the San Luis Hotel, only two minutes walk from the villa.
The nightlife is relatively quiet with visitors generally enjoying a meal or drink at one of the restaurants or bars. The hotels regularly provide evening entertainment for guests with live music or shows, which you are welcome to enjoy.

"Great holiday rental"
We were a group of 4 adults and 2 teenagers and the house worked perfectly for us. There was plenty of space and having our own bathrooms was a real bonus. It had everything you needed for your stay… More

"Great for a family group in a quiet resort"
Comfortable, spacious villa with lovely pool and grounds for relaxing in. Ideal for families/groups with older children (personal view due to the number of steps and open pool area). The resort of S'Algar is quiet with not much for the children to do, so a car would be advantageous, however we had a lovely holiday with 4 children aged 9-14 without a car.

"A most delightful holiday"
We have recently returned from a most delightful holiday, with three couples, at the "Yorkshire Rose" Villa. This villa boasts all the comforts of home and more, upstairs lounge, dining area and kitchen all nicely blend into one another, the kitchen has all the mod cons you would ever want from toaster, dish washer, washing machine to microwave, and I must not forget to mention the American fridge/freezer with external ice and water dispensers, and (most important) ample storage for all your beers and wines, ha ha. The lounge comes complete with Sky TV, DVD player, iPod docking station, and "wow" free wifi.
The stairs lead down to the four bedrooms, each with its own toilet and shower/bathroom, two of which are ensuite. Four bathrooms proved very useful, when everyone was getting ready to go out in the evening. Three of the bedrooms lead straight onto the large patio and into the decent size swimming pool, around the pool are plenty of quality sun beds , chairs, a couple of parasols and a barbecue area. We enjoyed a few quiet days relaxing round the pool, and although there are neighbouring villas, the pool area is very private.
The villa has a parking area of its own for your hire car, and a limited sea view, it stands on a quiet road, but nowhere in the relaxed resort are you any more than a 5 minute walk from the sea front, shops and bars.
We shall definitely consider returning in the future and would recommend this villa to anyone, whether families with kids or just adults.

"Great family villa set in quiet resort with good local amenities"
A lovely spacious villa with open plan kitchen/dinning area which further spreads to the living area and balcony so that the family can always be together (if they want to be). The bedrooms are on the lower level with en-suite bathrooms all finished to a high standard. There is a decent TV (with a reasonable and varied DVD collection) and all normal appliances so that one can enjoy oneself in a relaxed and comfortable manner. We did enjoy the Gecko's on the balcony in the evening.
The bedrooms open out onto the garden and swimming pool which dominates and is of a good size. It is all very nice and pleasant to while away the time there and again, everything is to a high standard.
The driveway is a bit steep and requires good clutch control when pulling out into the road but is not a real problem. The estate that the villa is on is quiet and never seems to have any traffic meaning that it is easy to walk down to the sea and to walk along the shops there (less than 5 minutes) which makes for a pleasant evenings exercise after the rigours of doing precious little during the day.
Beeches and more extensive restaurant options are available within a 10 minute drive and Mahon and airport are around a half hour drive.
All in all, a very pleasant villa and a great holiday was enjoyed by our family. Strongly recommend.
