“Two imposing and very private seaview villas with stunning swimming pools and private access to sandy beaches (6 or 10 bedrooms)”
Choose from the fun and funky 6 Bedroom Villa or the cool and calm 10 Bedroom Villa. Both are gloriously comfortable and spacious, with open-plan kitchen-dining rooms, huge unheated outdoor pools and expansive grounds. Every bedroom has its own personality and strengths.
We’re yet to personally visit the 10 Bedroom Villa, but it's hilltop setting gives stunning views to both the coastline and the rural pastures of inland Menorca. In fact, the elegant first-floor dining terrace strikes us as the perfect spot for sea-view sundowners. All bedrooms come with ensuite showers and the first-floor master suite has a hot tub thrown in, too.
Over at the 6 Bedroom Villa, the first-floor King Suite has a four-poster gazing directly to the sea beyond, plus there's a private west-facing terrace. Like the Sjal Suite and South Suite (also on the first floor) it has an ensuite bathroom, but here you get a freestanding tub as well as the walk-in shower. The lofty second-floor Queen Suite is the only double room to lack an ensuite, but we're rather fond of its dazzling sea views and 2 private terraces. There’s also a kids' bedroom and shower bathroom on this floor, so no need to traipse downstairs. The ground-floor ensuite Bovera Suite has direct access to the grounds: ideal for guests with limited mobility or those who enjoy an early morning dip in the pool.
Each house has a huge kitchen, a stylish dining room and an ocean-facing terrace made for lazy group feasts. We'd recommend hiring a cook (on request for individual meals or the whole stay) and revelling in the house-party vibe.
If you'd prefer to self-cater, you'll enjoy cooking here. The 6 Bedroom Villa has an impressive double oven and hob, a large fridge-freezer, a couple more fridges, and a huge pantry stocked with crockery, cutlery and equipment. We’re yet to see the 10 Bedroom Villa’s kitchen, but it promises to be of a similar high standard. Some basic ingredients may be available but nothing is officially provided. You’ll find grocery shops in your local village or a shopping service can be arranged.
Being somewhat isolated on your grand estate, you’re unlikely to want to eat out regularly in the evenings, but when you do you’ll find a few informal eateries in your nearest village. Es Migjorn Gran is a 30-minute walk or a 10-minute drive from the 6 Bedroom Villa. The 10 Bedroom Villa is a short drive from Sant Climent village and a 10-minute drive from island capital and restaurant hub Maó.
Both houses are also within a 10- or 30-minute drive of Hotel Torralbenc’s outstanding restaurant (book ahead). If you’re spending the day exploring the island, head north to Fornells, west to Ciuatdella or east to Maó for authentic tapas and fresh seafood lunches.
These palatial pads are perfect for a cluster of families or a multi-generational getaway, with seemingly endless space indoors and out.
