Location description from owner

The Balearic Islands region

Our home is situated in the S'Albufera des Grau National Park and is therefore in a totally protected natural area. UNESCO has dedicated Menorca as '' Special Reserve of the Biosphere'' and we are fortunate to be situated in the largest and most beautiful National Park on the island. The walks from our house down to and along the coast are stunning and there is a proliferation of bird life from brililant hoopoes & whirling red kites to the evocative call of the Scops Owls in the still night air. The huge natural lake of S'Albufera is just a few minutes drive away and there flocks of migrating birdlife can be watched from specially constructed hides. All this builds the sense of peace and tranquility around our property and yet it is such an easy quick drive to the bustling waterfront of Mahon port or the smart pedestrianised streets of Mahon centreEs Grau is still a traditional Spanish coastal fishing village with a magnificent sheltered beach. There is no 'development' here other than a very good little supermarket, a couple of beachside bars and restaurants and facilities to hire dinghies and kayaks which could get you out to the Isle de Colom , a deserted off shore island with lovely sandy beaches. If you want more serious water craft - yachts, motorboats, ribs - these are available for hire from Mahon port Mopeds, motorbikes and cycles (road & mountain) are easily hired to give you the access/activity you require to see the whole of the island and its delights. Excellent tennis courts are available at Mahon Tennis Club
