Great holiday.Villa in superb location,ideal for all are purposes. We will be back next year to sample more of the excellent tapas and local fish produce.
If you want total peace and quiet this is the place to come to. Booking a car is essential for getting around. That being said the villa is just a short drive into civilisation where there's just about everything you could ever want to shop for! The villa itself was spacious with outdoor space to match. It was great to disconnect from the internet and sit back and take in what the surroundings had to offer. Many thanks for a great stay!
This villa is gorgeous and located within stunning scenery and enjoys abundant wildlife. There are red kites and booted eagles soaring everywhere! A superb getaway for nature lovers who enjoy a tranquil peaceful setting. Thank you Andrew for sharing your beautiful place with us!
Beautiful location - quiet and peaceful.
Just what we needed to chill out. The location is perfect with wonderful views and yet very convenient to get to Es Grau and Mahon.
The villa had everything we needed for our stay and we enjoyed sitting upstairs in the evenings watching the sunset.
Beautiful Light airy villa in tranquil setting in Menorca's National Park.
From the start we loved being in this villa with its many windows and doors all letting in light and air. Because of the small wrap around garden it meant there were shady places one could find to relax. The turret which houses the living room was accessible from a staircase outside where one also reaches the railed terrace, but is also accessible from the dining room. These rooms were comfortable and relaxing. The terrace is a wonderful place to have meals, especially in the evening. The pool itself was a Terrific asset and much used. Superb location set in the National Park on a high ridge means fantastic views in all diirections with no close neighbours. Only 20 minutes from airport and close to Mao which is a beautiful city. Many secluded beaches to discover and coastal walking route which stretches round the island and which enables you to access many isolated places. A superb holiday where we celebrated as a family a 70th and 35th birthday. Happy memories.
The nearest beach is at Es Grau. Last time we timed it in the car it took just under 5 minutes. People do walk it (3km) but you do have to walk along the road. The beach at Es Grau is grey sand in a wide bay. It is very level and perfect for youngsters. There are various pedallo, windsurfer and canoe-type water craft for hire. The beach is big so rarely feels crowded. There is a pretty local-owned bar/cafe and lots of parking. Restaurants and shops are in the village.
Mahon Airport is 15-20 minutes drive. It is a good idea to hire a car. Not absolutely essential if you want the simple life but handy to go in to Mahon or visit other beaches or historical sights. Easiest is to hire from the multitude of companies at the airport.
Es Grau 3km. Mahon 7km. Aiport 12km. Google map ref for our villa is 39.937135,4.249027
When to go?
Menorca enjoys a long warm summer from May to October. From November to March the Island cools down but temperatures never hit freezing and there can be sun-bathing opportunities on sunny days! The wild spring flowers are spectacular March-May and there is a greater variety of bird life on the lake.
April and May are great months to visit if you intend to undertake some longer walks before the midday sun gets too powerful. Most restaurants open at Easter and there are more direct flight options from the UK in May.
October and early November are also good - we always used to spend the autumn half term in Menorca. The temperatures are usually good and the sea (and villa pool) are still warm.
We usually close up the villa in November and open it up again in March but we are open to negotiation for winter rentals. We had an author guest who stayed in the villa to write a book on one occasion. They became friends with a Pine Marten family...
