BOUTIQUE WATERFRONT HOUSE WITH POOL, MOTOR BOAT, LOCATED IN 'MILLIONAIRES ROW'.

Sant Antoni House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10 (5 bedrooms )

What an idyllic location for a truly unforgettable holiday. Lying near the mouth of Mahon harbour, you will find the unique Villa Gloria sitting peacefully on the edge of the waterfront, blessed with a jetty. No need to drive a car on this holiday. At a small extra charge you can use the motor boat (seats 7/8) that lives in the boathouse below to explore all that Mahon Harbour has to offer by day or night. What heaven to arrive at a waterside restaurant by boat and know that you can return without having to drive home! (boat for harbour use only) The spacious roof terrace has spectacular views over the harbour and has its own covered newly refurbished kitchen. The jetty is suitable for ribs or boats up to 15ft to be moored alongside. The sparkling swimming pool, which has under water lights, overlooks the harbour. The sea water in front of the house is wonderful to swim in or if you would like a large sandy beach you only need travel 3kms to Cala Mesquida. The house is situated at the end of a dead end road so is peaceful.

What is there to do?

With a little notice it is easy to charter a large powerful speedboat for wake boarding, etc., or sun seeker/sailing boats. You can fish in the harbour. There are quality tennis courts 10 minutes from the house at the Malburger Sports Centre. Other local activities including riding, go-carting and Son Parc Championship golf course, only 20 minutes from the house. There is a wonderful Museum and beautiful old fish market, the local produce is mouth-watering.

Menorca has recently completed its historic bridal path - “Cami de Cavalls” - which quite literally runs around the entire island. This offers a superb opportunity for horse riding, walking and cycling around some breathtaking and varied coastal and countryside routes.

For those who don't know Menorca, compared to Majorca it is a smaller island is less built up and has managed to retain its own charm. You can explore any of the 120 sandy beaches - it is an enchanting shoreline with innumerable coves and inlets in which to snorkel and fish. Wonderful undulating green countryside, quaint and quiet villages, unspoilt market towns, sweeping sandy bays, with an unhurried tempo that pervades the unspoilt island.

It is also a very interesting island with a big history and many archaeological sites of interest to explore. And what better way to start exploring the Balearic Island than its idyllic capital Mahon. An historical town perched on a hill overlooking the ancient harbour has the distinction of being the largest natural harbour in the Mediterranean. The town itself is lively, yet at ease with itself, with a tangible colonial feel alluding to a time of British occupation in centuries gone by. Mahon will inevitably beguile you with its small town charm, but not without its many heavenly boutiques.

Menorca was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

Cook, optional, extra charge.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Lindy,



My family and I have just finished a simply wonderful holiday in your villa. The setting is magical and all the staff seemed like old friends by the end of the first day. Helen could not have been more helpful, right down to the provision of fresh lemons straight from the tree for my evening gin and tonic. She was a fountain of local knowledge and arranged everything simply and smoothly. We had two cooks, Rosa and Carlo, both of whom were masters of their art. It is a testimony to their skill, that my two nieces aged 7 and 5 ate everything they put in front of them.

Special mention must also go to Eva, the masseuse. I have had a problem with my neck for the best part of a decade. No Harley Street chiropractor or osteopath has ever been able to sort it. Two sessions with Eva and everything has clicked back into place leaving me feeling rejuvenated.

I understand that we have been particularly lucky with the weather. Sun drenched days all week. Thank you so much for sharing your home - and I use the word home advisedly; that's exactly what it felt like and why none of us wanted to leave. I hope we will be back before too long.

My family all love Menorca and we have spent all our family holidays enjoying Mahon harbour and the surrounding area. We continue to go out to Villa Gloria with friends and family every year because it is so very special there. I am an interior decorator as well as being a sculptor so I get great pleasure in making the house look gorgeous!

Lindy Branson purchased this house in 1985

Why this property? Who would wish for any other! Villa Gloria is one of the original houses build on the waters edge of the harbour. Although there have been many updates to the house parts of it remain in its original state, because of this, naturally the house can be a little damper than a town house would be!

Water, water everywhere!

*SPECTACULAR HOUSE*

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely beautiful; it's your chance to experience the Mediterranean at its best!

This is a spectacular house set in a position so beautiful it takes your breath away. We were lucky enough to stay at Villa Gloria for two weeks this summer!

Every attention to detail has been given to this spectacular house by Lindy Branson, in making Villa Gloria comfortable and her warmth and hospitality shone through. Lindy, also happens to be a professional interior designer.

Taking the boat for our stay just was the cherry on the cake! we hardly ever had the need to go in the car, that is what I call a real holiday. It was so special returning from a night out at the water front restaurants across the harbour, to the jetty in front of the house. We also did all our food shopping by boat, mooring the boat by the old steps and walking up to the market in town.

The house was better than we expected. The photos were not deceptive, and if anything did not do the property justice. The house has great character. It was clean, well maintained, beds, linen, appliances, and amenities all great. The pool, patios, terraces are private and were great to relax around.

The couple managing the house was always charming and on hand to help us when we needed them, nothing was too much trouble.

Menorca itself is a lovely place, so unspoilt and interesting to explore, perfect for all ages. It is very easy to get around and the house is in a great location only a short drive into the wonderful small town of Mahon and to all the supermarkets and shops, but at the same time is tucked away from all hustle and bustle.

We would highly recommend this unusual house to a friend, and will most definitely be retuning in the near future!

THE MOST AMAZING 50TH BIRTHDAY

  • 5 of 5
I rented this fantastic house with some friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were all totally delighted with what we found on our arrival. The pictures hardly do the house and view justice, it was every bit as special as it looks in the photos. The house is very comfortable and very well thought out for every occasion. Lindy and her managers looked after us really well too.

If you enjoy all things watery you need look no further. Within 15 mts from the house the boat is tied up ready for your arrival. Within 5 mts is the sea in which you can have your swim if you would prefer to the swimming pool. Fishing is ideal here with the jetty just of the front of the house. Mahon Harbour has so much history and so many things to explore whether you venture out by boat or car. In the middle of the harbour is a wonderful Island called Isla del Rey which has recently been restored and is wonderful to visit. http://www.menorcaminorca.co.uk/hospitalisland.html

Another exciting place to visit for all is La Mola.

The course is both challenging and picturesque. ...www.golfsonparc.com/ is only 20 minutes drive away.
