At Torre Villa we offer a complete range of conveniences:

Bedroom Layout

On the top floor access to the master bedroom (aprox.30m2 with king size bed) and a second bedroom (aprox 16m2) ideal for younger children (two to three single beds). The bathroom is in the middle with access from both bedrooms. There is room to place a further two single beds in the master bedroom and turn the twin room into a double. The large downstairs bedrooms are accessed from the outside terrace, one has two single beds and the other has a queen size bed, both have en-suite bathrooms. There is room to put another single bed in either of these rooms.

Plus many charming extras, including your neighbour - Rollu the horse (who often neighs “hello” over the fence!), Tony the gardener, who will greet you in true menorquin style, your own oranges and lemons from the orchards, and plenty of peace and quiet.

Nearby Cuitadella is a delightful, authentic Menorcan town which caters for every taste in both shopping and eating. From the main town you can wander through cobbled streets past the many historical houses and small castles, down to the harbour where you can enjoy the ambience of the local nautical scene and sample the Menorcan cuisine, at your leisure.

Eating out

Eating out is an important part of Menorquin life, and there is a wide selection of restaurants and eating-places to choose from. We recommend the following:

La Guitara or Cas Ferrer in Cuitadella, for authentic menorquin cuisine.

Cafe Balear in the port of Cuitadella, Pizzeria Aristano at the end of the port.

Es Caliu Grill restaurant – very near the villa on the main road to Cala Blanca.

For tapas, try bar Triton in the harbour.

Beaches

The local beaches, or playas, are idyllic – quiet,clean and safe. The nearest beaches to the villa are Cala Santandria and Cala Blanca (an easy bicycle-ride); further away Son Saura, Cala Macarella, Cala Galdana and Cala Mitjana are highly recommended. And for sailing enthusiasts, Fornells, on the North side of the island, is a firm favourite.

For the more energetic guests there are a range of outdoor sports to choose from. Sailing, bicycle hire, horse-riding and diving are all available around the island.

Menorca is steeped in history and all around the island lie archeological sites such as megaliths (ancient stone monuments), as well as more recent places of interest such as Lord Nelson’s and Lady Hamilton’s house, and even Richard Branson’s luxurious retreat!

Practical information:

Getting around: Car hire is recommended rental cars are available from the airport and these should be booked in advance. On request recommendations for car rental companies can be provided.
Distance to Mahon (airport): 45 km

For the more adventurous, cycling is also a good way of seeing the island. Cuitadella is a 15-20 minute cycle ride.

Day-to-day essentials:

Nearest supermarket – Supermercado Diskont; approx 2km from the house.

Medical attention: In the case of an emergency, local doctors and hospitals are available to treat visitors to the island.
