About Owner

I first came to Menorca in 1968 as a child. My parents loved it so much that they bought 2 properties in Calan Porter . At that time the island was completely undiscoverd with hardly any tourists. I have seen it grow and witnessed all the changes. I have now lived permanently on the island for more than 28 years. I am on hand to help with any additional information required during your stay.

Owner purchased this house in 1986

Why Owner chose Alaior

This property is a great family retreat. Very spacious and suitable for a large family, or 2 groups of 4. Many friends with their children have had wonderful holidays in this house. It continues to surprise everyone who has never stayed before with it´s stunning views and beautifully maintained private pool.

We are told repeatedly that our fotos do not do justice to the real thing!

What makes this house unique

Quiet road, yet near enough to everything required for a wonderful holiday. Very friendly village atmosphere closeby.

Please note : We do not accept more than 8 people to stay in this property.

THE HOUSE IS NOT AVAILABLE FROM MID OCTOBER - MID MAY

Casa D'or review

  • 5 of 5

We thought Casa D'Or was a beautiful villa. Extremely clean and well equipped - everything was provided that you could need on a holiday. The 3 downstairs bedrooms were fantastic and the first floor bedroom with its own bathroom was perfect for the grandparents. Caroline was a great host and we would love to come again.

Lovely house with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious house with awesome views across the sea, bay and town. Three terraces to choose from and a great pool area. Description is spot on, but maybe a little understated. Feels more like being in a home rather than a soulless villa - it has lots of charm. Property is very clean and well maintained. Caroline the owner provides excellent customer service, both before and during stay. Information pack is very useful and comprehensive. It a short walk (10-15mins) from the resort centre but is hilly (so be prepared). The supermarkets do delivery, which we found to be very handy! No aircon (and says so in description) but fans in all rooms. Can be a bit uncomfortable when very hot, but ok once used to. In the town we frequented the Somoa restaurant - great food, value and service. Definitely recommend the resort and house, which would hire again. Great week. Love it!

Perfect for all three generations!

  • 5 of 5

We took our 2 small children to Menorca back in 2015, and though we had a lovely break, our villa hadn't been up to much - wasn't anything like the pictures!! As we loved the island (and the 2 hour flight time!) we returned this year with grandparents in tow. So we sought something a bit more special and Casa D'Or certainly did not disappoint. You could tell it was someone's home when you walked in, it smelt really fresh and was beautifully furnished. We instantly felt at home. Town was a comfortable 10 minute stroll away via some stunning views. Normally we would eat out more than in, but the kitchen was so well-equipped that we ate out by the pool almost every night. The bedrooms were very comfortable with more then ample clothes-hanging space and the master suite was beautiful - massive bed! Unfortunately our kids were so excited by the prospect of the pool every morning that they didn't afford any of us much lie-in time. Though breakfast out by the pool every day is a pre-requisite to being on holiday, and it was bliss. Caroline came to check all was ok and she was as lovely as the other reviewers had said. She had made sure we had potties, child toilet seats, and kids tables and chairs for eating in the garden which really helped, plus some inflatables whihc the kids loved. Can't understand why she doesn't live in the this villa full time though! Her loss was our gain. Oh and the views from the house! They were truly spectacular. The grand-parents thoroughly enjoyed their peaceful times sat on the roof or terrace drinking wine and watching the sunset while we put our little ones to bed. Was very relaxing and just what the doctor (literally) ordered after a tough period for the family. We will be back if they'll have us.

Our home from home in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We love our time in Cala en Porter and we really love our stay at Casa Dor. We have come back every year since finding this jewel in the Med and Menorca.

The house is ideal for families with in easy reach of the town and especially the beach. The views and the sunsets from the roof terrace are beautiful to spectacular.

What makes this place so special to use is the great friendship we have stuck up with the owner Carry, nothing is to much trouble for her and her love for the house is just as infectious to us. Can't recommend enough, we love it so much even down to the residents in the garden.......
