FRONTLINE APARTMENT WITH MAGNIFICENT SEA AND BEACH VIEWS & WI-FI

Fornells Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Spacious West-facing front-line apartment occupying a premier secluded position in the popular and well-maintained Playas de Fornells resort.

Access is down a few steps through attractive communal gardens. Spacious living/dining area, with kitchen off, leads to large balcony with table & chairs. LCD TV with Sky+ (you can record programmes) and DVD/VCR. One double bedroom with remote-controlled ceiling fan & full en suite bathroom and one twin bedroom overlook the sea and the third smaller twin bedroom with bunk beds looks onto a quiet private courtyard with table and seating. Large George Foreman electric grill. Further separate full bathroom with washer and drier. New sofas, electric oven and gas hob installed in 2010.

No traffic or resort noise. Small shingle-beach cove a few minutes' walk away, with the unspoilt Cala Tirant beach about 500 yds away. On-site management.

Unlimited download Wi-Fi Internet available in the apartment for a small additional charge.

Fornells and Fornells Bay: Fornells is a village at the mouth of the protected Fornells bay, 5 km away, with a most attractive palm tree-lined harbour, mainly used by the local fishermen. It has various souvenir and other shops and excellent restaurants, most of which face onto the harbour or the bay. The king of Spain has been known to visit, sometimes eating at the waterfront Es Pla restaurant. You can visit the C19th British-built watchtower by the cliffs to the North.

The bay is some 5 km by 2 km and is an excellent, safe location for motor-boating, sailing and windsurfing, all of which are available for casual hire. Courses can be booked in advance. The bay is a popular destination for sailing and motor yachts.

Other towns to visit: Mercadal is an interesting local town nestling below Monte Toro, which, at 300m, is the highest point on the Island and which has superb viewpoints and a café, and which you can see from our balcony.

Mahon is the capital of the island and is 25km away. It has excellent shops, a cathedral, gin factory and one of the largest natural harbours in the world. Harbour boat trips available.

Ciudadela is 30 km away and is a beautiful port of Moorish design looking towards Majorca. It has spacious squares, elegant buildings, a fine cathedral, markets, excellent shops and numerous harbour-side restaurants.

Other activities: There are lots of very good walks in the island. Bird watching is apparently very good. We often see pairs of cormorants fishing below our balcony first thing in the morning, as well as various varieties of gull, red kites and sea eagles.

With a car you can access the following activities within a 20 minutes’ drive: go-carting, trampolining, horse riding lessons and waterslides. There are over 100 beaches on this small island, many of which are accessible by car.

A comment from an Italian family who spent two weeks in August 2008: “… the holiday in Menorca has been beautiful and also your house has been very comfortable and with a wonderful quiet and view.”

A Swiss couple wrote of their visit in September 2012: “We had two very beautiful weeks in Menorca. Your apartment is a jewel – the French would say „un vrai bijou!“. We sat very often on the balcony watching the sea … The different blues of the water were amazing. The apartment is very comfortably furnished and well equipped.”

Other recent guest comments: “The apartment was a delight…” “We loved the waterfront position...You did very well finding an apartment in such a lovely position.”

About Chris Hamer

I am a retired solicitor who has known Menorca since 1984.

Chris Hamer purchased this apartment in 1989

Why Chris Hamer chose Fornells

I bought this property off plan because of its excellent location, size and spectacular views.

What makes this apartment unique

The property has great sea and beach views, whilst being away from traffic and noise. Apart from the nearby excellent Cala Tirant beach, there are many other splendid beaches on the island as well as great restaurants in the resort and in nearby towns such as Fornells and Mercadal. Fornells is surely one of the most attractive fishing villages in the Mediterranean.

Owner's Response: I am always delighted when guests enjoy the apartment so much. A Swiss family, who also rented in August 2014, commented to me: “Many, many thanks for your great apartment ….. everything was to our best satisfaction…you have a very nice apartment and it was great that we were allowed to use the beach umbrellas …it is all very lovingly prepared and we felt immediately at ease…we would very much like to come again!”

In German: "vielen herzlichen dank für ihr tolles appartement…es war alles zu unserer besten zufriedenheit …sie haben eine sehr schöne wohnung und es war auch toll das wir die sonnenschirme benutzen durften…es ist alls sehr liebevoll gemacht und wir fühlten uns sofort wohl…wir kommen sehr gerne wieder ein mal !"

fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5
The apartment has excellent facilities and was very clean and well kept. There are many restaurants, bars and supermarkets within walking distance, which was useful as we didn't have a car. In particular we enjoyed the food, atmosphere and prices at the Okapi.The beach at Cala Tirant is also ridiculously close (about a 5 minute walk) to the apartment and is great for bathing.

My favourite feature was the view from the balcony and I enjoyed many day and evening sitting gazing at the bay and the beautiful sunsets over the hills opposite. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend it to others!

Great holiday location

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday. The apartment is very well appointed and with a stunning location. We especially enjoyed the marvellous sunsets which we watched from the balcony, drinks in hand! It is ideally situated for exploring the island and with a good selection of restaurants nearby.

A marvellous place

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is in a marvellous front line position, away from roads and noise, with an excellent view over the sea, the nearby beach and the hills behind. It is very well furnished and is a great base for a holiday in Menorca, with nearby supermarkets and restaurants and also having the beautiful fishing village of Fornells very close.

A nice house with the most beautiful view through two bedroom windows and the balcony, Private location but to see the island a car is a must,There are two supermarkets close by that are well stocked, The bars and restaurants close by serve high quality food at very reasonable prices. A quiet select area.

A very beautiful stay!!

  • 5 of 5
We were 2 families with 3 children and we really enjoyed the house, the environment, the sea, the people. The house is fitting for 2 families, everybody had his own privacy, and the view on the bay is wonderful. Furnitures and equipments are absolutely perfect.
