UPVC doors slide open from the lounge onto a secluded patio area containing a table, four chairs, four sun-beds, parasol and a BBQ. The sun-beds can be taken outside and placed by one of the two communal kidney-shaped pools on the complex. The east/south-east facing patio area gets the sun from dawn until mid-afternoon and is bordered by shrubbery so that you have privacy for sunbathing. There are two swimming pools on the complex and they are only a short walk from the apartment to the superb soft sandy beach at Son Parc. Bikes and watercraft can be hired locally.
The owners are completely flexible on arrival and departure days (e.g. arrive, say, on a Monday and depart ten nights later on, say, a Thursday). If you do not wish to depart before 10.00 am on your last morning because you have a late flight home, it is possible to book one extra night at a pro-rata rate. The apartment has a restricted sea view. From the patio area, there is a view of the sea between the apartments on the opposite side of the cul-de-sac where the apartment is located.
Bath towels, hand towels and bed linen are supplied. If your stay is for 10 nights or more, all towels and bed-linen will be changed after 7 nights. You need only pack beach towels.
The apartment is managed by an English speaking representative based in Menorca who is just a telephone call away should you require assistance during your stay.
Smokers are welcome. However, the INSIDE of the apartment is a no smoking area.
The Menorca region
Menorca is a beautiful island, ideally suited to young families. All around the coast there are secluded sandy coves and as well as a few large sun-kissed beaches. There are many places of interest. Monte Toro, in the centre of the island, is the highest point and can be reached by car or foot. Ciutadella, the old capital, has a picturesque harbour from where it is possible to catch a car ferry to Majorca. Mahon, the present capital, has the second deepest natural harbour in the world and is a great place to visit during the day (e.g. shopping, gin factory visit or a glass-bottomed boat trip) and at night (e.g. quayside restaurants, lively bars and harbour illuminations).
Son Parc is situated on the north coast of the beautiful island of Menorca. The resort has all the facilities one would want. Bars and restaurants. Nightly entertainment. Golf., Tennis, Horseriding. Beach bars. Excellent sandy beach with dunes behind. Sheltered bay, ideal for safe bathing. Shallow crystal clear water for young ones to paddle. The apartment is situated in a quiet complex of just 40 apartments which has the benefit of two kidney shaped pools. One of which is situated literally less than a dozen paces from the apartments lockable front door. The island's only 18 hole golf course is located in Son Parc.

"Relaxing holiday in a quiet location."
This apartment is in a really quiet area of Menorca, with access to a FABULOUS beach.It is perfectly described by the owner and the pictures are a fair representation. However I would not describe it … More
Thank you for posting your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Els Vents 8 and we appreciate your feedback. There are indeed a fair number of steps leading down to the nearby beach. However, as you have mentioned, the beach can be accessed by walking down a more gradual incline, which is a longer route (15 mins) or by driving to the free car park at the far end of the beach. We will change the description on our advert so that it does not make reference to a sea view because, as you have stated, it is more of a glimpse than a view. Thank you once again for taking the time to submit your comments following your holiday at Els Vents 8. Nigel and Linda McPheat

"Pretty Apartments, lovely beach, quiet resort"
The apartment was clean and well equipped - with a pretty terrace garden at the rear - away from the pool area which was perfect for dining in the evening without worrying that the little ones would f… More
We were sorry that you had a problem with ants during your stay. We have since arranged for our representatives to give the apartment the necessary treatment so that the chance of any further such problem is minimised. Also, we have made sure that a supply of ant-repellent is always kept in a high cupboard out of reach of any children.
It is unfortunate that you encountered some negativity from others on the complex during siesta time as the two pools are there to be enjoyed during the daylight hours.
Thank you for submitting your review. We're pleased that you really enjoyed your stay at Els Vents 8.

"A great family holiday with without any"
This was our third time in the resort of Son Parc. We love the peaceful surroundings, super beach, and the friendly restaurants and shops. Son Parc gives you a little of everything without the hussle and bussle of the bigger resorts. The bus service is affordable and punctual and takes you to all the amazing sightseeing destinations. This was our first time at Els Vents 8. It was clean, tidy and had everything we needed, including plenty of room for our family of 6 (ages 15, 13, 8 and 4). If we wanted to spend a day at the apartment we set up our sun loungers knowing that the kids could nip in and out as they pleased, The rental was just as the owners had described. We would certainly book another holiday at Els Vents. Thank you for making our experience very enjoyable.
Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We're pleased you enjoyed your holiday at the apartment.

"Excellent Els Vents"
Stayed with wife, 10 and 7 year old sons.They loved the choice of two pools virtually on your doorstep.We all had hours of fun there and the boys made friends with lots of other families staying in neighbouring apts.Perfect bliss for my wife and I to have a glass or two of chilled wine while watching them play in the evening.
The apartment had everything we needed to relax inbetween visiting other resorts. The lovely beach at son Parc is only a short walk downhill and very safe for the kids. we hired a car and explored the island which i would highly recomend as there are some absolutely stunning beaches on the island which we, as a family love.Did this every day much to everyone's enjoyment and then return for early evening to the apartment. The boys played in the pool while my wife 'got ready' and I relaxed. Evenigs out in Son Parc were quiet and relaxed but with plenty to do. Our boys loved the activity park which is only 5 mins walk from the apt and nice for a stroll.
All in all, an excellent holiday with an excellent apt as a base for which to explore the rest of this fantastic island. highly recommended.
Your comments are much appreciated. Thank you.

"lovely quiet, safe place to stay, great if you have young children."
we stayed at Els Vents for 10 days and as it was our first holiday with our 18 month old, we were anxious to make sure we had everything we needed and that it was quiet and safe. The owner was extremely helpful- we called before hand and explained that we would be arriving in the evening and were surplied with some basic provisions, which saw us through until we could walk to the local shop the next day.
We found the apartment to be very clean and well organised with everything you could need for your holiday. We spent the first 5 days walking to the beach, and using the local restaurants, which we found to be very reasonable and friendly. The last 5 days we hired a car to go further afield, but if you want to really relax you can just make use of the local area, without the need for a car.
We would definately stay at Els Vents again and have been considering staying at the owners other apartment in Cyprus.It was a great first holiday with our small child.
We're glad you enjoyed staying at apartment Els Vents, 8. We do appreciate it when guests submit their comments for others to read. Thank you.

"Brillant holiday-close to lovely beach, accommodation clean and comfortable."
One of the best aspects to this apartment is that it is so close to the lovely beach, just a few minutes walk but there are quite a few steps down to the beach. The pool was lovely too, right out side the apartment door, and we had it to ourselves, even though it was July. The apartment was clean and comfortable, since we visited, I believe that a new bathroom and satellite T.V have been put in, which should make it even better. The owner of the property was very helpful and replied very quickly to any questions.
