About Robert Rolives

I fell in love with Menorca when I discovered the island in the 80's. I bought a land very close to the sea and built this house that I refurbished in 2013, to add a swimming pool, a new kitchen, air conditioning but keeping the charm of a typical Menorcan chalet.

Robert Rolives purchased this villa in 1990

Why Robert Rolives chose Es Mercadal

A house on the waterfront to hear the noise of the sea and enjoy one of the best panoramic sea views in Menorca, all with great tranquillity! A very nice coast path will lead you directly from the house to the village of Macaret and another coast path will lead you to the beaches of Arenal d'en Castell and Son Saura. For those enjoying diving or snorkelling, the cala in front of the house offers spectacular seabeds with amazing fauna and flora.

What makes this villa unique

This property is unique in Menorca for those willing to enjoy unspoilt Mediterranean Sea, wild nature and beach leisure activities, still being within a walking distance to supermarket or restaurants.

Spectacular setting, peaceful and private

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a relaxing week at this gorgeous villa. Views are exactly as the photos, wonderful direct/uninterrupted sea views with direct access to the sea for snorkelling/diving when the winds are favourable (and fantastic wave watching when not!). Stunning pool and setting. House very clean and nicely presented, we particularly liked the more contemporary feel to the larger villa (A). Feels private and tranquil, yet the facilities of Arenal d'en Castell are a short walk away so a hire car is not essential unless you want to tour the island.

Amazing location and pool

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with kids ages 11 and 13. We stayed in September and had the most amazing time in Menorca and at this villa. It would be hard to beat the location as it's right on the sea. We all loved the pool. We had the most amazing snorkelling experience right below the villa. The WiFi and Internet worked well too. The only improvement I could suggest was on the furniture side of things-it was a bit sparse and could have been a bit more high end. Also, there were a couple of maintenance issues that needed to be sorted out (mainly the pool lights not working). Overall, though, it was one of the best places in terms of location that we have ever stayed in and would highly recommend it.

Ficula Vell A is a well conceived house, with nice common spaces and rooms which allow for some intimacy. Confortable beds. Good wifi access. Kitchen well equipped. Lovely terrasse on the roof. Impeccably clean. It is also very quiet and a great place to come back to after visiting Menorca.

The island is rather small and every place can easily be reached from the house. Off season, we really enjoyed Fornells.

Everything is well organized, and the owner is very helpful.

The view is spectacular - when we stayed there, we were lucky to see an incredible full moon rise above the sea. The cove is easily accessible, and wind allowing, snorkeling is quite good, lots of fish and colorfull alguae. The pool is really good too even if we didn't get to use it much (this year, end of october, the water was rather chilly).

Recommended any time!

Just perfect and unique ...

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of 4) had just an unbelievable good time in this amazing house with its spectacular view over the sea ... Just perfect and unique - house and location!

This house shows a very high quality of living, very much higher than the standard normally seen in houses which are for rent ... The pool with lots of space around it is just a dream and we loved to live there all the day, feeling the nice breeze of the sea, bathing in the warm water and enjoying to do nothing but living ....

The rock just in the middle of the bay is a good and also famous spot for diving. Like a Swiss cheese, it owns a lot of holes and channels. The access to the rocky access to the sea can be done over a path. A sandy beach - suitable for little children - is in walking distance, not far away.

The owner is very reliable, friendly and sympathetic. He really knows what is to do - so for the customers like us it was just easy going ...! A local house manager is on demand, just in case ...

We strongly recommend this unique house on its spectacular location! Just AAA!

Amazing house in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular location and spectacular house in Menorca! With my wife, we are just coming back from holidays in Menorca and we are already thinking of booking next holidays in Ficula House. We will not forget the swimming pool with its solarium overlooking the sea: it is fabulous! The access to the sea is also very easy and you feel as if the sea and the coast in front of the house belongs to you! Also we did appreciate the tranquillity of the area and its proximity to a supermarket and to the sandy beach of Arenal d’en Castell. We recommend strongly this house.

Perfecte villa voor een groter gezelschap

  • 4 of 5

Eind mei zijn we een week hier verbleven met 6 volwassenen en 2 kinderen. Een prima onderhouden villa, eigenlijk 2 aaneengeschakelde appartementen met een gezamenlijke veranda en zwembad. Wij hebben beide gebruikt. Alles was netjes schoon en er zijn ruimschoots voldoende voorzieningen. Via rotsen toegang tot een kraakheldere zee (niet voor kinderen) om te snorkelen. Vanaf hier gingen ook duikers te water. De zee met zandstrand op 300 meter, dus goed te belopen. Ook een supermarkt halverwege die route.

En lekker weer. Een aanrader!
