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.

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week on Menorca. The location of the villa is exceptional, the views are stunning, the bay is a peaceful haven for snorkeling and diving. The cliffs are close to the house, but not frighteningly high with a little footpath in front of the house that leads down to the bay of blue, clear water.

We loved having the owners close by who advised on excursions and organised a table for us at a busy restaurant. We are very grateful for a perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained with ample equipment for our family of 7

There were very comfortable sun beds and ample tables and chairs for dining on the terrace

Air con good in larger unit, would have been nice in smaller unit

Towels need upgrading for this standard of villa

Thoroughly recommend the property with its outstanding position overlooking the sea.

Even at 32’o c always a lovely cooling sea breeze

Stunning location with unbeatable view. Spacious house

  • 4 of 5

Stunning location and very well equipped house. 30 seconds down to a beautiful cove for swimming with the fish and a child friendly sandy beach about 5 mins walk away.

House is very spacious although a little basic in terms of furnishings. Towels fine for showring but not really adequate for pool etc. Well equipped although no chopping board! Would have been great to have some furniture on the roof terrace for an evening meal. Wonderful built in BBQ - has inspired us to build one of our own.

Nice restaurants in town - simple map of town would have been useful to get our bearings on arrival. Great and very friendly little bar/bistro just down the road,

Advise taking Deet or anti-mosquito spray.

A lovely, peaceful and relaxing place.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Extended family of 9, including a 2 year old stayed this last week and had a great relaxing time in this lovely Villa. Beautiful views to enjoy whilst sat by the great pool and home from home inside.

Couple of nice bars closeby, plus several

more in town, which is about 10 minutes walk, either by road or along the lovely beach boardwalk (but with quite a few steps at the end).

Great communication from the Host throughout the stay - highly recommend staying in this resort and this Villa.

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.
