GARDEN VILLA OVERLOOKING THE SEA IN TRADITIONAL VILLAGE SETTING

Fornells Villa Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, sleeps 4

This garden villa is situated on the scenic north coast of Menorca overlooking the unspoilt bay and beach of Cala Tirant. Playas de Fornells has been tastefully designed to recapture the atmosphere of a traditional Spanish village and the garden setting and lovely views ensure the right frame of mind for a relaxing holiday.

The swimming pool to the rear is shared with the other garden villas in a delightful garden. The beach is only two minutes away and provides safe swimming in the sheltered bay. The long golden sands of Cala Tirant are never crowded even in the height of summer.

A small supermarket is close by so that self catering is very convenient. Dining out however, is a real pleasure in nearby Fornells, a picturesque and unspoilt fishing village noted for its seafood. Fornells also boasts the Es Pla restaurant, noted for its lobster Caldereta and frequented by the King of Spain!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks Malcolm for the use of your villa. It was ideal for us, well equipped, quiet and fantastic views. We had a lovely week with weather warmer than expected and managed to do some hiking, cycling, kayaking and lots of swimming.in the sea. We have been in the south of the island several times when our children were young but definitely prefer the north and enjoyed exploring areas we hadn`t visited previously.

Sol Cars were great and I have recommended them to a friend who has just bought an apartment in Es castell.

Best wishes,

Jacqui

FANTASTIC FOR A OUT OF SEASON HOLIDAY.

  • 5 of 5
Most people go to Menorca for the summer sun and the beaches but this is a fantastic island whatever the season. We enjoyed our December stay in the Garden Villa and our walks on the very scenic Cami de Cavalls, the long distance footpath that circles the island. The Cami passes within 100 yards of the villa. Temperatures at night can fall into single figures but we found the Garden Villa to be very cosy. During the day the weather was sunny and pleasantly warm, just right for walking. We found a few restaurants open in the bigger towns, including Fornells, with great Menu of the Day deals. A hire car from the airport is a must out of season, dont expect any public transport.

Owner's Response: It`s great to learn that our guests enjoy Menorca out of season.
Whilst most guests enjoy the hotter weather, the cooler times of year are ideal for walking on the scenic coastal Cami de Cavalls.
For nature lovers in general there is always the chance of spotting a rare migratory bird and in springtime the wild flowers are wonderful.

FANTASTIC FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
The villa was as descrbed, fully equipped with everything you require.... the patio BBQ was perfect for lazy evenings watching the sunset. Lovely quiet beach 5 mins away and a nice clean pool which never seemed to get too busy. The view from the patio was a joy each morning/evening. Several very nice restaurants within walking distance (3-5 mins) in particular Cafe Nord and Es Cactus, also a couple of supermarkets a few mnutes away fromt the villa selling eveything from food, gifts to beachwear. We found having a car a great opportunity to explore further afirled and would recommend this if possible as our 2 teenage daughters really enjoyed seeing the more commercial (busier) parts of the island but a car is in no way a necissity. Would recommend food shopping at the bigger supermarkets in Es Mercadel or Mahon as prices were considerably cheaper than local. We enjoyed a wonder around Mahon town/port, Fornells is also a must.... too many beaches to list but Cala Pregonda is worth a mention (beautiful location, great snorkelling but a bit of a walk!). Malcolm was very easy to deal with and most helpful throughout the booking etc... and also recommended a car hire company who provided an excellent service, We would return to this villa/location again without a doubt.

WHAT AN AMAZING LITTLE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We really cannot speak too highly of this property nor of the kindness and consideration of the owners.
Apart from being in a beautiful setting, the property is superbly maintained and everything is in excellent condition and works as it should. The two bedrooms are light, airy and spacious. The kitchen is compact but perfectly adequate and well equipped. The bathroom is clean and tidy with a large hot water tank providing oodles of hot water whenever you want it. The main room and outside terraces are all well appointed. The communal swimming pool is well maintained and, for those who don't mind getting sand between their toes, the beach is a short three minute walk away. The appartment is quiet and relaxing. Very highly recommended. We shall definitely return.
The owners we found to be friendly and helpful at every stage of the booking process. We couldn't have asked for more!!

FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at this property. It felt very homely and we loved the location and views. The pool was surprisingly quiet and we had it to ourselves most of the time which was very nice! We would definitely recommend this property and would very much like to stay there again.

Owner's Response: We really appreciate hearing how much our guests have enjoyed themselves at Garden Villas and in this instance the comments regarding the pool beng quiet (even at the height of the season in August) demonstrate how most people take advantage of the convenience of the adjacent beach. Those with families and young children are particularly attracted by the safe shallow waters and the clarity of the sea which is great for snorkelling.

OUR LOVELY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We have just come back from Menorca and cannot recommend this property and Fornels enough. the apartment is clean, tidy and fully equiped with everything you would need.

The view from the veranda is lovely and we spent many morning and evenings out there. The swimming pool is uncrowded and great for a dip when back from a days outing.

The owners were so helpful before our trip.

I could not recommend this apartment / resort enough, and we shall definately be returning.

A LATE SUMMER BREAK IN MENORCA

  • 5 of 5
A superb villa in a pleasant location, this was our fist visit to Menorca, and we were very pleased with the accommodation which I can't recommend highly enough. The setting is superb with lovely views of the bay. It was so relaxing to sit out on your own private terrace in the evening in the peace and quiet enjoying a glass or two of wine.

The Supermarkets, bars and restaurants are only a five minute walk away, and I can highly recommend the Cafe del Nord restaurant, the food is very good, the El Cactus restaurant next door to it is also very good and more reasonably priced.

I will certainly book this accomodation again as there is still so much of the beautiful island to explore.

In addition to the safe bathing in Cala Tirant which is adjacent to the property the Bay of Fornells (5mins by car) offers superb sailing, as well as diving and kayak. A little further afield at Son Parc (15mins by car) there is an 18 hole golf course open to there public. The unspoilt market town of Mercadal (10mins by car)has retained its old world charm and offers great shopping facilities in its traditional high street. With the recent opening of the Cami de Cavalls(old coast path) there are many beautiful walks nearby which afford great opportunities for bird watching along with swathes of wild flowers in spring and remote beaches accessible only on foot or by boat.
