About Robert Rolives

I fell in love with Menorca when I discovered the island in the 80's. When I found in 2001 this little paradise called Es Verger, I did not hesitate, invested all my savings and refurbished it, adding comfort but keeping the charm of an old menorcan country house.

Robert Rolives purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Robert Rolives chose Son Bou / San Jaime

A farmhouse on the waterfront! The entrance of the property is directly from the Cami d'es Cavalls, historical path that surrounds the island by the coast. Cami d'es Cavalls will lead you, within a walking distance, to the virgin beach of Atalix, between beaches of Son Bou and Santo Tomas. Don't miss this walk!

What makes this farmhouse unique

This property is unique in Menorca for those willing to enjoy rural environment and beach leisure activities, still being within a walking distance to supermarket or restaurants.

A true paradise for holidays.

  • 5 of 5

Es Verger is a beautifull farmhouse, very well and aesthetically refurbished with plenty of rooms. It is equipped with all suppliances you need like microwave, dishwasher, washer, huge fridge-freezer etc. The pool is of a good lenght and depth allowing you to swim. Pool and house are very well kept by a local service agency.

The house, surrounded by trees and fields, is located near to the natural preserve area and the "Cami de Cavalls", a famous walking path at the costal areas of Menorca. Es Verger farmhouse has no direct neighbours and is a very silent place.

You can take a 4 km walk through pure nature via "Cami de Cavalls" to the beautifull natural beaches of Son Bou or walk to the village of Son Bou with shops, pubs and restaurants (about 4km to village center in the other drection). We have been there three times and will sure come back. A perfect place for holidays.

Inoubliable: une semaine de vrai bonheur

  • 5 of 5

Nous recommandons vivement ce petit coin de paradis pour les amoureux de la nature, de la campagne et de la mer. Nous venons a peine de revenir de cet endroit paradisiaque et avons deja envie d'y retourner.

La maison est a la fois isolee et proche d'un village. Nous avons beaucoup apprecie la poximite du chemin d'es caballs qui est adjacent a la propriete et qui permet a pied d'acceder à une tres belle plage vierge.

L'interieur de la maison a beaucoup de charme et les repas sous les oliviers sauvages autour de la piscine sont inoubliables.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour vos commentaires elogieux que je traduis en anglais ci-dessous: "We strongly recommend this little corner of paradise for countryside and sea lovers. We are just coming back from this paradisiac area and we already want to return. The house looks as away from it all, but still close to a village. We appreciated particularly the proximity of Es Cavalls walking path which is adjacent to the property and which is a walking distance to a quite nice virgen beach. The interior of the house is plenty of charm and dinning below the wild olive trees around the swimming pool was unforgettable."

THE BEST FARMHOUSE IN MENORCA

  • 5 of 5

"Es Verger" its the PARADISE. A beautifull farmhouse located in a natural area very near to the beach. You can go by bicycle to the best beach in the island Son BOU or walk trow the pathway "cami de cavalls" to a virgin beach. the house its very well situated in the centre of the island and allows you to go easily to every were.

The house its and old Menorcan farmhouse beautifully refurbished by his owners, Robert has done a great job and a lot of effort in his refurbished. The structure of the house its simple and the "mares" stone gives the house strong texture and protect from the hot temperatures. The swimming pool its well designed and the outdoor terrace its the best place to stay. Under the "acebuches" trees its the place to sleep the "siesta" and to enjoy a romantic and non romantic dinner. The breeze of the sea runs always and melt with the smell of the fig trees. Its nice to feel the nature so near and to ear the intimacy of your family.

inside the house its great to see that the bedrooms are big and the bathrooms has italian showers where you can have a longs showers where to take off the sun and the salt of beach. The beds are comfortable and the house its nice furnished.

so i´d definitely recommend it.

all the family are now waiting for our next 3 weeks summer holidays in this paradise. enjoy them but kept them to yourself.

Ein Platz zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr schönes gepflegtes Landhaus inmitten eines großen dazu gehörigen Areals, beste Voraussetzungen für Ruhe und Erholung. Beispiel: Der Tag lässt sich an mit entspanntem Frühstück unter Olivenbäumen neben dem Pool und mit Eindrücken der umgebenden Natur. Zuverlässige Betreuung durch Vermieter, Verwalter und Personal. Empfehlenswert.

Owner's Response: English translation of review A very nice and well maintained country house surrounded by a large natural area, the best conditions for rest and leisure. Example: you can start the day with a relaxing breakfast under olive trees next to the pool and enjoy the surrounding nature. Reliable care by the owner, administrators and staff. Recommended.

Es Verger... Increible!!!

  • 5 of 5

Debido a que mi mujer es de Menorca, todos los años aprovechamos para vacacionar en la isla y compartir con la familia.

Este año decidimos rentar una casa de campo y por eso escogimos Es Verger.

Ahora mismo estamos aqui!!!

Es un paraiso!!!! Esta ubicada a minutos del centro de Son Bou, donde uno tiene acceso a bares, restaurantes, farmacias, supermercados... a todo lo que uno puede necesitar en vacaciones, pero lo suficientemente aislada como para uno sentir que esta solo... en el medio del campo.

La casa esta perfectamente equipada... y al estar construida de Mares (piedra caliza local), la temperatura interior es perfecta.

Mi hijo esta conviviendo con la naturaleza de una manera que nunca lo habia hecho. Es como estar en una pelicula.

Al estar situada subre el "Cami de Cavalls", el acceso a la playa de Atalis es perfecto para disfrutar de la naturaleza y de una de las playas mas hermosas de la isla.

De verdad la recomiendo mucho.

De hecho, seguramente el verano que viene volvamos a alquilarla!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Rodo, for your comments that I am translating in English below: "Thanks to my wife who is from Menorca, each year we enjoy holidays in the island that we share with the family. This year we decided to rent a farmhouse and we selected Es Verger. We are in right now!!! This is a paradise!!!! It is located few minutes away from the centre of Son Bou, where you can have access to bars, restaurants, pharmacy, supermarket... at everything you may need during your holidays, but it is sufficiently isolated to get away-from-it-all... in the middle of the countryside. The house is perfectly equiped... and being built in Mares (local stone) temperature is very pleasant. My son is living with the nature as he never did before. It is as if you are in a movie. Located on the path "Cami de Cavalls", the access to the beach of Atalis is perfect to enjoy nature and one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. I recommend it sincerely. In fact, we will cerainly come back next year!!!"

The farmhouse is located in a natural protected area of particular beauty, which is adjacent to the village of Torre Soli Nou. The access to the property is through the Cami d'es Cavalls, a short rural road and path walk which surrounds the island by the coast. Between the house and the sandy coast there is a virgin wild and wet area ideal for bird watching. Torre Soli Nou has necessary shops, pharmacy, restaurants and bars. The closest town, Alayor is at 6km from the house. The house is ideally located with easy access to each corner of the Island. For example the golf course of Son Parc is 15km from the house, the historic city of Ciutadella is 30km away and the harbour of Fornells is 20km away. The Cami d'es Cavalls, which is adjacent to the property, will lead you to virgin beaches accross wonderful countryside areas.

Other Activities: Bird watching, classic concerts, weekly typical and colourful village feasts with horses.
