Menorca features some of the Mediterranean's best beaches, with white sand bays along much of the island's 216km coastline. Some 12 minutes from the villa is the sandy beach at Son Bou, with Sant Tomas and Binihaus beaches also within easy striking distance. The island is recognised and protected as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, acknowledging as much Menorca's natural beauty as its historical importance. Several ancient archaeological sites dot the landscape, while the harbour area of Mahon - now a collection of ocean-front restaurants and cafes - also features Nelson's home and the British Naval hospital, a record of Menorca's more recent history and importance as a strategic British outpost.

The views: The villa looks over the terraced gardens and swimming pool.
The gardens: Although still to fully mature in parts, the terraced grounds are spacious and well maintained. An ancient water tank has been converted into a plunge swimming pool, around which are sun loungers and large shade umbrella. There is a large covered pergola, perfect for outdoor dining and a pleasant furnished terrace area.
Why we like it: The location of the villa is delightful - within walking distance of one of the most authentic towns on the island and a short drive to the broad, expansive beaches of the south west coast.
