About the property

A stunning Italian-style mediterranean villa (1500 m2) next to wild beaches

Do you want to live in a Mediterranean villa, with private access to the best beaches in Europe? A combination of grand Italian architecture in a XXI-century comfort house. You will be in the middle of a 75 acre private forest, ending up in beaches of crystal waters. Ideal for groups of families that want to escape a few days from the busy city and the touristic resorts. 3h/day of cleaning service is included.

The space

You will rent ~1500 m2 of a grand villa, including ca. 75 acres of forest, with internal roads, that gives access to Cala Turqueta (one of the best beaches in Europe), and the famous "Cami de Cavalls", a hiking track of 200 Km that surrounds the whole island. That gives you access to other breathtaking beaches like Talayer beach (10 min walk), Son Saura beach (15 min walk) or Macarella beach (35 min walk).

This is not a simple house. You don't rent only the house. You rent the "atmosphere" of that place. You will be part of the soul of that incredible place that brings you back in history.

The house you will rent has a soul. You enter a fully renovated historical building, constructed at the beginning of the XX century following Italian architecture. You will find spacious bedrooms, ample living rooms and dining rooms, with ample views to a breathtaking landscape. The high (4 m) ceilings, the bathrooms with harmonious bathtubs with sea views, the sound of the birds in the morning (remember, you are in the middle of the forest), the tracks that allow you to arrive to beaches with crystalline waters, or the incredible colors at the sky at sunset. Did you see the stars during a summer night? Go to the roof (bring a pillow, please), lay down and simply contemplate this incredible spectacle and remain silent. Then you will start to understand what I am talking about.

Do you want more? Rent also the ground floor. The house is equipped with space for celebrations and events. Approximately 1500 m2 of a garden (with sea views) to accommodate your guests for a party, and a covered space (ca. 180 m2) in case of rain (and for cocktails/eating/dancing). Toilets for guests are also available. Plan your wedding there or a fantastic birthday party!. A parking for approximately 300 cars is available.

Note that extra fees may apply if you want to celebrate large events using the ground floor.

Main floor: 6 double rooms (16 m2), 2 en-suite rooms (22 m2 + 12 m2 of bathroom), 4 bathrooms (2 en-suite), 2 living rooms (one of 32 m2, another of 16 m2 with projector TV, cinema, Netflix, blue-ray), large dinning room (32 m2), extra dinning room (16 m2), large, fully-equipped kitchen, laundry, large terrace (facing South with sea views).

Ground floor: large space for meetings and events (~160 m2). Includes 2 toilets for guests, 1 service toilet for personnel, and extra room for events. Extra room for equipment and catering is also available.

All rooms are equipped with wash-basin.

(Free) Wi-fi (ca. 20 Mb) is available throughout the property.

About Gabriel Vivo Truyols

I have been living in different cities in Europe (Valencia, Brussels, London, Amsterdam). I've spent 10 years working at the University of Amsterdam as assistant professor (I was teaching chemistry and statistics there). In 2016 we decided to give it a change. I work 100% remote via internet (with major chemical multinationals around the world) and started this business.

Gabriel Vivo Truyols purchased this villa in 2016

Why Gabriel Vivo Truyols chose Ciutadella de Menorca

This is a family house and belonged to my family for several generations. I inherited it and decided to renovate it (pipes, electricity lines, furniture, etc.) but keeping its soul, and then I started to rent it. We live here with my wife and four kids, and we rent it during summer time (we vacate the house when it is rented). There are so many remembrances from this property when we were kids... we climbed the trees, we went on the bike, we rode the horses, we went to the beach... I realized that our childhood was a privilege. I just want to share this privilege with the next guests.

This property is quite unique. You will find lots of apartments, touristic resorts or hotels in many areas around Menorca. But this property is different. It enjoys a unique privacy (you are in the middle of a protected area), and it has a glamorous architecture. The space created feels like going back 100 years, yet enjoying full XXI comfort. Besides, the surrounding forest ends up in breathtaking beaches.

What makes this villa unique

There are too many things in the property that are unique. I just mention a few:

- Pick up a pillow and go to the roof during a summer night. Lay there and contemplate millions of stars.

- Wake up early and go to the terrace. Contemplate, listen, smell... the light, the sound of the birds, the smell of the land... at sunrise. It is awesome.

- Take a mountain-bike and give it a ride till the beach. Don't worry, the path is private (and it is included in the rent).

- Pick up a horse (horse rental is available nearby) and get to the next beach. Do you want more? Do it during the night, at moonlight.

- Enjoy the spacious rooms (minimum is 16 m2, normally more, with incredible high ceilings), or the view over the sea from the arched terrace.

- Simply pick up a good book and go to the many quiet places inside the forest (I can show you where to go). Enjoy the privacy.

- Hike around the coast line between Cala Turqueta en Es Talayer. It is a 20 min ride. The views are amazing. You start at a beach, climb up the cliffs, have a commanding view over the whole South coast of the island, and reach another breathtaking beach.

- Contemplate the sunset at Son Saura beach (after 15 min walk). It is a wide bay, and the sunset is incredible.
