Property type house

About the property

The house has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and sea views

This charming house is situated in the South East part of Menorca in the tourist village of Cala En Porter with direct and unobstructed views of the sea and the beach. The house literally hangs off the cliffs of this beautiful bay, which protect the beach from the typically strong winds of Menorca.

There are about 750 square feet divided over two floors, with two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a patio, living room with open plan kitchen en a vast terrace with panoramic views over the Mediterranean.

Early 2013 this property was completely refurbished to the highest standard in a modern design maintaining the typical Mediterranean style of the island. The beach is directly accessible through a winding staircase down the cliffs, which makes this cosy house ideal for a family beach holiday.

On the top floor the entrance to the house gives direct access to an open air patio with open shower, a door to the fully equipped kitchen and living room and a separate entrance to a large bedroom. The more than 350 square feet terrace with barbecue and lounge chairs is ideal to relax and enjoy the gentle sea breeze.

After descending a short flight of stairs you will find access to the second, very large bedroom with its own private and fully refurbished bathroom. Every window in the house open up to breath-taking views of the sea and beach.

Cala En Porter is a well-kept secret amongst British tourist and offers everything you need for your holiday, such as supermarkets with national and international products, various restaurants serving everything from English breakfast, Italian Pizza, Chinese buffet to the delicious local cuisine of the island. The main attraction of the town however, for which tourists and locals from every part of the island come here almost every day, is La Cova de Xoroi, a cave-bar that offers special daily sessions to watch one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, a definite must-do and see.

There are also various hiking routes which start at Cala En Porter, such as the famous Cami de Cavalls, which will take you on a 360 º tour around the island.

House cliff with terrace in Menorca

Amazing views

  • 3 of 5

The views from the terrace are beautiful, everything you see in the photos are true. The birds and butterflies that we saw were lovely.

Javier is on hand to help with questions you may have - he was like a mountain goat up and down the stairs! He will help with places of interest to go and see. Driving in Menorca is very easy, although parking in the bigger cities can be difficult.

This villa is not for people who have small children or who are elderly as there are (I counted them!) 66 steps down the cliff to the villa from the main road. We only had small cases but it could be tricky if you have bigger cases. These steps are open to the public so I felt it necessary to lock the outer door and also the door to the bedroom below the terrace. Might have been overkill but I felt better for it. The steps continue down to the beach which saves walking a small distance up the hill to more steps down by the bus stop.

There are lovely restaurants and bars in the town all within walking distance which are well worth a visit; Dos Pablos, Casa Tia, 007, Seagrams and of course the old favourites Pitos and Sa Paisa.

I have stayed in Cala en Porter many times in another villa. Whilst they don't have the amazing views this villa has, they do leave a welcome pack of essentials (butter, bread, milk, ham etc) which we didn't get here. But I don't think it included in the price to be fair. A 'nice to have'.

I think we may have been the first visitors of the season, the villa smelt a bit musty at first but left when all the doors/windows were opened. Could do with a lick of paint and perhaps some solar lights around the villa's external door in the garden area (we remembered to water the plants and they were starting to flower when we left 😊�🌸�).

I loved staying in this villa - very peaceful and relaxing with wonderful views and the sound of the waves lulling me to sleep.

Thank you Bernard for allowing me to stay.

PS I bought you a new cork screw. Couldn't find one in the kitchen 😂�

Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Villa Cristoful!

We met Bernard's brother in law, Javier, to gain access to the house. He was a kind, helpful man who gave us suggestions for our stay. Throughout planning this trip, Bernard was also very accessible and easy to talk to.

The house itself is beautiful. It has a lovely view overlooking Cala en Porter and the water. At night when sleeping, if you wish, you can hear the water on the shore. It was so peaceful.

There is also easy access directly to the beach from the house. We had everything we needed and more and loved our stay! The place was clean, well-maintained, and in an excellent location. Close enough to walk to town, but far enough away to have some quiet and relaxation.

Thank you to Bernard, we will definitely come again!

Sehr schönes helles Ferienhaus mit spektakulärem Blick von der großen Terrasse

  • 5 of 5

Schön und zweckmäßig eingerichtetes helles Ferienhaus, gute Matratzen, Moskitonetze vor vielen Fenstern! Das Bad im unteren Stock ist vom Feinsten. Uns hat nichts gefehlt.

Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter Bernard war ausgesprochen gut und problemlos, auch der Empfang durch Xavier sehr freundlich wie auch die Verabschiedung durch seine Frau.

Unübertreffbar ist die Lage über der Bucht mit dem Strand.

Die Fotos geben nur einen kleinen Vorgeschmack von von dem tatsächlichen weiten Blick über die Bucht auf das Meer hinaus. Die große Terrasse läd geradezu ein zum Verweilen und Schauen. Das Früstück draußen war für uns jeden Morgen ein Highlight.

Praktisch wenn auch nicht ganz unanstrengend war die Treppe weiter hinunter zum Strand mit ein paar netten (Tapas) Bars.

Da auch der Hauptzugang von der oben entlang führenden kleinen Straße über diese Treppe zum Haus erfolgt, ist es für in der Beweglichkeit oder Fitnes stark eingeschränkte Personen nur bedingt zu empfehlen.

Geräuschmäßig ist es recht ruhig gewesen, die Straße oben hört man nicht, vom Strand hört man halt etwas den Badebetrieb. Hat uns aber nicht gestört. Das seitliche auch etwas entfernte Nachbarhaus war nicht belegt.

Wir haben uns in der Villa San Cristoful ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt und die Zeit sehr genossen.

Lieber Bernard, vielen Dank dafür.

Beste Lage mit Wahnsinnsblick

  • 5 of 5

Gepflegstes Haus mit 2 Terassen, guter Grill, großes Wohn- Esszimmer, was man auf den Bildern nicht erkennt. Das 2. Bad hat eine große Walk- in Dusche. Der Weg zum Stand geht direkt am Haus vorbei, also kurze Wege. Im Ort ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht: 2 Supermärkte, viele Restaurants.

Der Service am Haus lief einwandfrei.

Wir fanden es so schön und werden wiederkommen!

Séjour très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette petite maison avec vue fantastique sur la cala. Bon confort général avec toutefois un bémol sur la cuisine qui mériterait une petite Rénovation notamment l'évier hors d'âge. Ce détail mis à part, tout était parfait. L'accès à la plage facile par l'escalier et aucune difficulté pour garer la voiture.

Maison à 15 minutes de Mahon, proches des sites archéologiques et proches d'autres cala

Idéalement situé

  • 4 of 5

Maison idéalement située, à 2 minutes de la belle plage de Cala n' porter en empruntant un escalier se faufilant entre les maisons blanches( cela rappelle les Cyclades), à 5 minutes des commerces et restaurants.

Maison simple (c'est les vacances!!) mais confortable.Terrasse avec vue à couper le souffle.
