A well equipped, good value for money villa, close to shops, restaurants and beach ( lovely but lots of steps) Unfortunately lots of ants and flies, but I think that just goes with the territory. Pleasant and comfortable, nice outside areas in the villa to eat. Only reservation was the road was a little busy at times.

Rustic villa in a beautiful rural location. The villa is quite basic but has what you need and was a good base to explore the area. The pool was lovely.

The villa was perfect for our needs. It is simply furnished but is very spacious and had everything we needed. The location is perfect for the beach and restaurants. There are lots of other villas around but the location of this one just worked for us. Easy access for the bus to Mahon and the car hire place is the friendliest Ia€™ve ever used. Punta Prima is friendly and the beach is lovely.

We have stayed in the villa for 6 years now and having loved it so much we brought our daughter, son-in-law and grandson with us this year. As always the villa was immaculately clean and facilities for the baby had also been provided which was so helpful. The pool was lovely to cool down in, the loungers were comfy and Jason and Michelle were superstars! We will be back!

Fantastic holiday at Villa Rico. Beautiful location, 5 mins walk to the beach, restaurants and shop. We did hire a car to explore the island, so many lovely places to visit. Villa was well equipped and clean. Only thing we could have done with was a cool box for picnics during the day. But overall we had a blast and would book again in a heartbeat!

Overall, we had a fantastic time at Villa Xapa. The villa itself is in a stunning location and in itself is lovely, its your own little slice of paradise. The villa was clean on arrival; it wasnt totally spotless but clean enough for us to use. Towels and linens were very good. The communal spaces are very nice and comfortable, plenty of room for dining (inside and out) and sitting. There were enough sun-beds so we could all lounge around by the pool. The pool and outside area were very nice and a huge bonus is that its private. It was just a bit too cold for some of us, but this isnt a criticism of Beach Villas or the villa. There is a sprinkler system that comes on during the night/very e

Villa rentals in Menorca

Postcard Menorca is the second largest island in the Balearics and the third most populated, situated in the west of the Mediterranean between Algiers and Marseilles. Unlike its neighbours Majorca and Ibiza, Menorca is a peaceful, palm-tree fringed resort that remains largely untouched by tourism. Families and couples will find that Menorca offers the full package when it comes to a quiet and relaxing beach holiday. As a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, this sun-kissed holiday destination boasts seemingly endless beaches, charming whitewashed villas and lush greenery stretching all the way down to the coast. The island is dotted with golf courses, walking, cycling and riding trails, as well as a beautiful coastline offering a wide choice of water sports.

The elegant port city Ciutadella and Menorca's capital city Mao-Mahon offer traditional markets, Roman and Moorish architecture and harbour side restaurants and cafes with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Take a hike to the top of Monte Toro for panoramic views of the island’s contrasting red sandstone and limestone landscape. Here you'll find the island's tallest peak, home to ancient stone monoliths, wildflowers and local wildlife. Remnants of Menorca's ancient history can be found all over the coast, from Fornell's Bronze Age watchtower to the Stone Henge-style altars at Torre d'en Galmés, abandoned after the Roman occupation. There's also an ancient gin distillery - the last remaining from the 18th century, when Menorca was under British rule. Taste the refreshing Mediterranean version, as juniper berries mix with herbs, using copper stills that are over 100 years old.

Our Menorca villa rentals put everything on your doorstep: the sound of the sea, crystal clear waters, 216km of Mediterranean coastline and an idyllic beach escape in the heart of the Balearics!

A beginner's guide to renting a villa in Menorca

Menorca is the second largest, yet quietest of the Balearic Islands; it is also easily accessible. Its main airport Menorca Airport, has direct flights to major cities in Europe and the UK, with airlines like Easyjet, Jet2, TUI, Ryanair and British Airways. 

Menorca’s unspoiled beauty makes it the perfect place for the more adventurous to discover the charms of its colourful landscape. Key places include:

Maó-Mahón, the island’s capital, is a town and municipality on Menorca’s eastern coast. King Island, or Isla de Rey, sits in the middle of the Port of Mahon harbour and is famous for its 18th Century military hospital of the same name. You can get a direct boat or stop as part of a harbour cruise to explore this magnificent building, its gardens and the ruins of the 6th Century basilica. The La Mola peninsula, at the city's entrance, is home to the Fortress of Isabel II, an important landmark in Menorca's naval history. If it’s secluded beaches and bays you’re after, then you’ll find plenty dotted around Menorca’s eastern coast.

Es Castell is a municipal town and popular lively holiday resort in the eastern part of Menorca. It is well known for its calm water and sunny beaches making it perfect for sunbathing, wind surfing, diving and sailing.
