Overview

Fornells Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sea Views, 3 beds, 2 baths, private balcony, sunbathing terrace

Self-catering apartment close to beaches. Views are outstanding. Family owned. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms. Sleeps 6 comfortably. Large open-plan living space with fully fitted refurbished kitchen, dining and sitting area. Recently fitted dishwasher. Wood burning stove for those late and early season romantic breaks. Four steps to bedrooms and bathrooms with bath plus showers and washing machine/tumble drier. Fittings refurbished. Bedrooms have fully fitted wardrobes with drawers. Fans provided.

Playas de Fornells has restaurants and supermarkets as well as a bar and local mini shop. There are swimming pools attached to bars usable all day for the price of drinks and snacks. Buses and taxis available easily. Short walk to a local BBQ restaurant and the beautiful fishing village of Fornells.

All water sports nearby, sailing, swimming, sail boarding, diving, boat hire, excursions by boat. Cycling, walking, fishing and bird watching (feathered) and golf all short distance. The island has many tourist attractions and evening entertainment available.

LOCAL ASSISTANCE: Saran Propiedades provide our local support. Their office is located across the road and to the left of the apartment, as you leave the front door, at Local No 7, Tramontana I (at the end of the colonnade across the road).

The office is open on Monday – Friday from 10.00 to 13.00 and in the post-siesta period and on Saturdays in high season - check opening times on door of office where details of an emergency out-of-hours contact number will also be found.

Messages for you can be left with them - there is no phone in the apartment, but a reasonable mobile signal is available on the front terrace.

Saran will assist with any problems you may encounter and also have a key to the apartment in case of emergency.

AT THE APARTMENT: Always lock the front door and close the shutters when leaving the apartment. Although a safe and friendly island, summer visits from thieves have been known.

Behind the front door are the electric mains switches. Throw the mains switch for everything to come on, but individual switches are labelled in case of difficulty. If the fridge does not come on, check the socket switch behind it.

The cleaners should have moved the balcony furniture out onto the balcony, and the sun loungers out to the front patio (loungers marked K4). Please bring in covers when you go out and at night to save from damp and sudden winds.

Feel free to use up any food/drinks etc left behind by previous occupants and any sun creams, shampoos etc in main bathroom. If any are time-expired goods, please throw these out. If any basics run out during your stay (e.g. sugar, salt etc) please ensure a replacement supply. Take care to clean up after every meal/snack ants are constantly on watch.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: Water OK to drink after boiling, for cleaning your teeth or washing salad, but buy bottled for drinking (cold) and ice cubes. Whilst there will be sufficient hot water for your needs, please schedule use of the showers to avoid too much demand within a short space of time.

If the flow of water from the taps is low, unscrew the filter on the end of the spout and remove the inevitable grit which accumulates therein. This should solve the problem.

In each bedroom, is a plug adaptor suitable for the insertion of “tablets” to kill off any overnight mosquitoes. The tablets should be found under the sink in the kitchen – Baygon or Bloom brands effective and recommend their use nightly in occupied bedrooms. Please remove the plug when you arise in the morning, to prevent overheating, (as this causes burning of the paintwork and sockets) and ensure there are some “tablets” left for anyone arriving after your departure. Do not leave windows open with lights on as this encourages flying visitors!!!!

About Sue

Purchased as a three generation family holiday home to allow us all to sail around the cost of Menorca. Family all grown up now so hoping the next generation will enjoy this wonderful, safe, family friendly place.

Sue purchased this apartment in 1984

Why Sue chose Fornells

When we walked over the builders rubble and saw the sunset we decided we had to buy it! We have loved this real home from home ever since. It is well looked after and not an anonymous rental machine.

What makes this apartment unique

The view, the nearness of the sea, the headland opposite which is protected and cannot be built on. Closeness to beautiful beaches and wonderful restaurants. Plenty to do, sailing, sailboarding, snorkelling, scuba diving or just crash and relax! Excellent facilities in the apartment, dishwasher, log burner, large TV, DVD player and DVD films & Satellite for the news!

A little bit of Menorcan magic

  • 5 of 5

This is beautifully presented property which provides plenty of space with great views ,two bathrooms are an added bonus along with plenty of storage in the bedrooms ,the only thing I would have wished to see was a safe to store valuables away but other than that I would certainly recommend a stay here

Owner's Response: I will look into providing a safe. However in the thirty years I have owned the apartment it has never been a problem! If guests feel more secure with one I obviously have to see where we can install one!

An ideal location to relax

  • 4 of 5

Located in the tourism area, the "PLAYAS DE FORNELLS", witch is a beautiful complex with very small building and extensive well flowered gardens.

The apartment : modern well equipped, comfortable, "we feel at home"; the sea view from the dining terrace is really amazing !

Just near accommodations : a supermarket, a good snack bar, a bus station from where you can go and visite FORNELLS, MAO, ES MERCADAL, CIUTATELLAD, …

Also, a beautiful small quiet beach at 40 meters and a large children sandy beach at 200 m.

An ideal location to relax, we will be back !

Owner's Response: Given the review I am surprised this is not five stars. No suggestions for improvement, maybe it's a language thing? Suzie

We stayed here with our two children and my parents. Over the last ten years we have had many holidays in Menorca, but found your apartment to be the best we have stopped in. The whole place was very clean and extremely well equipped. More than anything though, the location and the view were fantastic, such a beautiful setting. The adjacent cove was ideal for snorkeling and the main beach only a 5-10 minute walk. We ate at several different restaurants and found them all to be very good but found the Cactus Bar the best as there was something on the menu for everyone – even the children (and one of them is very hard to please!!). We will definitely be back.

Just like home abroad!

  • 5 of 5

We are happy to have made this choice and really felt at home this summer, our first time in Menorca. The apartment is big enough (3 bedrooms), very comfortable and well equipped. We stayed there with 3 Kids and 2 adults and we always felt save and sound. We especially loved to sit on the balcony and to enjoy the great seaview and sunsets.

The area is touristic, but not too crowded. You definitely need your own car to see and visit all the interesting and fun things allover the island and Platges de Fornells is a very good location to get anywhere. Suzie's (the owner) guide book about Menorca was a terrific way to find out what to do and where to go. And we never got disappointed. I almost threw my three guides in the trashbin......By the way, Suzie is a very nice and reliable person, who answers mails promptly!! Thanks for everything!!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A well-kept apartment in a really calm area. The gardens very nice. Every morning we enjoy having a coffe in the terrace looking the sea, incredible views (you can see it in pictures) The apartment is comfortable for 6 people, you can find everithing you need, two bathrooms, well equiped kitchen. There was some activities like an Abba live concert! The beach is very near. The people is family-friendly. In the morning we visited some beatiful beaches (very clean) we recommend Cala La Pilar, Cala Coves, Cala Tortuga, Binissafúller, Cala Blanca, Santo Tomás...and then to have a walk in Es mercadal, Binibequer vell, Mahó, Fornells...to do some shopping!

We recommend the Restuaurant Ca Na Amarga, near the apartment.

The apartment is perfect, Menorca is on of the best places I'v been and we recommend to relax, enjoy the beach, the sun, perfect for the children.

We will back!!

Thanks for everyithing Suzie!

Great apartment, wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

We went to the "exclusive" La Manga complex in Spain a couple of years ago but rate this as even better! The apartment is set in lovely grounds with snorkelling a stones throw away minutes away and a sandy beach within a very short walk. We hadn't been to Menorca before and loved it. The beaches were stunning, the water clear and warm and the snorkellng - especially in the Northern "biosphere reserve" was fantastic. There was also lots of sailing and kayaking if you've got teenagers. We went just before the school holidays and the whole island was very quiet and relaxed. Renting a car meant we were able to visit relatively inaccessible areas of the island. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending the apartment, Fornells or the island to anyone.

Beautiful quiet, romantic location overlooking the beach this apartment has stunning views across the bay to a protected coastline. It is part of the beach village of Playas de Fornells on the unspoilt northern coast of Menorca.

There are excellent restaurants, bars, swimming pools and supermarkets minutes away. Numerous quite bays and beaches can be explored by car, bicycle, boat or foot. Guests have enjoyed sailing, diving, fishing, walking and bird watching locally. The pretty fishing village of Fornells provides opportunities to learn to sail, surf-board, organise a diving trip or boat hire.

Mahon and Cuitadella are at opposite ends of the island, both give plenty of shopping, sightseeing, horse riding and local cultural opportunities to fully appreciate the diverse nature of the island.

Walking and biking trails have, also, been developed for those who cannot relax on an endlessly sunny beach.

Other Activities: Bird watching, boat hire, boat trips.

Golf: Son Park is now an 18 hole golf course and is approximately 10 mins drive.
