The kitchen is decorated in cheerful peacock blue, contrasting with the otherwise neutral theme of the villa. Here, you'll find everything you need for self-catering, including an oven and lots of cupboard space.
Bedrooms are a muted, sophisticated affair, with splashes of sage green and floral print on the headboards. The linen is made from 300-thread count Egyptian cotton, ideal for a restful night's sleep. Colourful valances on the beds add a pop of colour, while classic black framed art hangs on the walls. Some of the rooms have their own plush armchairs to relax in.

The village is made up of a warren of winding streets and lovely limestone houses. Menorca as an island, has a more leisurely feel and a slower pace than some of the other Balearic Islands. However, those in search of adventure will not be disappointed. There are several water parks, a lovely harbour and many opportunities to observe local wildlife. Menorca is encircled by 216km of coastline and there is a dazzling array of 'calas' or coves nearby.
Around Binibeca beach, there are the coves of Biniancolla, Binisafuller, Biniparratx and Binidali to explore. The main beach is made up of gently sloping white sand, crystalline, warm water and with a backdrop of picturesque volcanic cliffs and forestry. Those interested in diving will be pleased to know there is a great diving school where you can explore an underwater shipwreck. Snorkelling and kayaking are also popular activities at Binibeca, as you can spot exotic fish and sea life.
Another great beach to check out is Cala d' Algaiarens in the north of the island, with irs own cave, lapis-coloured water and a ribbon of silky white sand. The best spot is behind the main beach, surrounded by pine trees.
One of the best attractions nearby is the harbour of Mao, a 2km-long stretch lined with cafes, boutiques and art galleries in the island's capital, Mahon. Descend the steps of the harbour to spot luxury yachts and visit the famous gin distillery. Here, guests can take a tour and sample interesting flavours of Xoriguer gin. Local Menorquin delicacies to try include lobster stew, baked squid or octopus and sobrassada - paprika-spiced sausages. Menorca is also famous for tapas, a great way to try some of everything. At the harbour, guests can book onto a one-hour boat trip, spotting islets and fascinating architecture along the way.
For a thrilling introduction to the island's indigenous wildlife, book onto Jeep Safari Menorca. Local guides take groups of passengers in 4x4s around the backroads and hidden gems of the island to spot flora and fauna. It's a great opportunity to learn more about local life and the animals that call it home, such as the black Menorquin horse.
To get a superb panoramic view of the island, head to El Toro, Menorca's highest peak. To reach the top, there is a moderate 2 hour hike. From here, adventurous guests can go paragliding above the island. Glide in tandem with an experienced instructor back to the ground.
