Thinking about a villa holiday rental in Spain for your summer holidays can give you a warm glow which can help
you get through the dark days of winter. One such sunny Spanish holiday destination is Menorca (Minorca), one of
the Balearic Islands. It is one of the smaller Balearic Islands and is relatively unspoilt and quiet in comparison
to Mallorca and Ibiza. It has a wide variety of hotels, villas and apartments to suit most tastes and budgets. You
can even book a luxury villa rental or a modest holiday apartment rental direct from the property owners and save
on your holiday costs.
Menorca is one of the most popular Mediterranean island destinations for a family holiday. Hot sunny days are
almost guaranteed and there is an extensive range of privately owned villas and apartments to choose from for your
summer holiday rental in Spain.
You can choose from a villa holiday letting in Spain in the hills with a swimming pool and a view of the sea, to
a holiday apartment rental near the beach that the kids will love. Menorca is a small island and everything is
within easy reach including the picturesque little villages and the many small coves and beaches.
If you are looking for a holiday letting in Spain in a quiet and peaceful location then Menorca may well have
the holiday apartment rental or the vacation villa rental you seek. The island is ideal for families and for those
looking for a place to unwind in a tranquil setting. The pace of life is far slower than that of the neighbouring
island of Mallorca which tends to have a more rowdy, party atmosphere.
If you choose your holiday rental in Spain in Menorca you will find that in the evenings most visitors are
content to eat out in one of the excellent restaurants or enjoy a drink in one of the many bars.
Menorca has more beaches than the other Balearic Islands, ranging from small secluded havens surrounded by
rocks, to long golden-sand beaches with beach bars. On the south coast Cala en Porter is in a lovely cove,
surrounded by imposing cliffs and it offers safe bathing and all the tourist amenities you could possibly need.
Worth visiting on the west coast is Cala Macarella which is more remote but is accessible by car from
It is a very beautiful beach and popular despite the fact that there are few tourist facilities. If you choose
your villa or apartment holiday rental in Spain in Menorca you will be able to enjoy lazy days on the beach
followed by leisurely meals and if you want a bit of exercise try some of the picturesque coastal walks.
Staying in an apartment or villa holiday letting in Spain on the island of Menorca means you will have access to
plenty of fun activities for all the family. There are watersports available on the beaches but for an exciting day
out you can visit the Los Delfines Aquapark which has water tunnels and giant slides and can be found near
For families who enjoy the countryside and want a day away from their apartment or villa holiday rental in Spain
we would recommend a visit to the S’Albufera des Grau Nature Reserve in the north of the island along the coast
from Cap de Favaritx. It is a beautiful area with a lagoon and wetlands which are home to many species of birds
including rock-thrushes, rock doves and peregrines.
If you decide to book your holiday rental in Spain in Menorca you should try to visit Mahon the capital of the
island. Mahon is the ideal antidote to an excess of sun and sand with its bustling pedestrianised streets lined by
interesting shops – look out for leather goods and pottery as well as designer clothes shops.
After you have had enough shopping stop in one of the shady squares and have a break in one of the many pavement
cafes. You can get a bus to Mahon from most places on the island and we would recommend that you use public
transport to get to the city, as there are few places to park.
