Absolutely wonderful.....

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 10 - 6 adults and 4 children ranging in age from 7 to 14. We have just returned after the most glorious week in this beautiful villa and are desperate to return! To be brutally honest, I was more than a little paranoid as I had never booked a villa before and had heard numerous horror stories about people who had been completely let down and robbed blind.

I was in touch with Kate from the start. She responded to each email In a timely manner and completely put my mind at rest and didn't make me feel like the paranoid freak that I'm sure I must have come across as......major sigh of relief on my part when we arrived in Son Bou after a seamless, beautifully air conditioned bus dropped us off at our villa.....

The villa itself is perfectly situated in Son Bou - within walking distance to beach and local shops and restaurants so no real need for a car. Everything that we could have wanted was in the villa, lovely bedrooms, good kitchen and sitting room although they were barely used as we were on the outside terrace and in the pool most of the time.

The villa is large enough for a big party to,take "time out" if they feel the need. Plenty sun loungers to chill out and read a book and as the street is so quiet, it was wonderfully relaxing.

The whole villa, and indeed the entire area of Son Bou was spotlessly clean and we felt completely safe - no haggling from restauranteurs trying to ply their wares.......a pleasant change from some countries. Eating out, and indeed shopping for food locally is,a little expensive, but then you do get what you pay for and we were more than happy paying a little extra.

The local restaurants were good although San Andreas was excellent, Chinese restaurant not so great but ok. We ate in on several nights with the help of the barbecue which took a while to master, but we got there in the end!

Would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxiing holiday in a beautiful part of Menorca.

I truly hope to be back one day.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Katherine for a lovely stay in your beautiful holiday home. This was my 6th time visiting Menorca but the first staying in Son Bou. The view from the villa is absolutely stunning and what made it stand out for us against our other shortlisted properties. The upside down configuration of the rooms allows the outside areas to completely benefit from the sea view.

As a family party of 9 - comprising of 5 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children the villa offered everyone a range of facilities suited to their age. The location is great, quiet enough to be peaceful with only a short walk to the shops and restaurants. We opted not to hire a car but being a large group and mainly eating in, we took a taxi for only around €12 each way to the nearest town Alaior and stocked up in one of the larger supermarkets there, with a wider choice of butchery and fresh groceries it was worth the effort as well as buying water and drinks in bulk to last the week and bought fresh bread daily just a 5 minute walk away.

From the initial email enquiry Katherine was extremely helpful and having never rented a private villa before I spoke with her on the telephone, viewed the area using google earth and booked with total confidence. Katherine also put me in touch with the local management office who arranged airport transfers for us for much less than booking it separately from the UK. They were also really helpful in recommending a 'special occasion' restaurant. We ate at Casa Andres to celebrate my mums 70th birthday. They assisted me in booking this in advance of our holiday and arranged with the restaurant for a beautiful personalised cake from a local patisserie.

All in all, great villa, fantastic location and easy confident booking. Would highly recommend!

STUNNING VILLA IN BEAUTIFUL SON BOU

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing one week holiday we have just had in this beautiful villa. We were a party of 8 adults and 2 children aged 3 and 8months and there was plenty of space for us to enjoy the spent at the villa without feeling cramped. Everything you could possibly need was catered for even down to a toy box containing soft toys, childrens books and lego!! Plenty of sun loungers, parasols and chairs to use by the pool and many inflatables for the children, and adults, to enjoy!

Large dining area on the terrace with a barbecue to use if required.

The gardens were beautifully kept and the swimming pool was cleaned several times during our stay as was the Jacuzzi.

Villa is in a stunning location within walking distance to the beautiful sandy beach and shops and restaurants. We especially loved walking down the local bakery in the morning to buy fresh croissants, pastries and bread. We tried several restaurants but our favourite was Andres and the Italian Allesandros. For an extra special evening out a trip to Es Forn is well worth a visit. Best steak we have ever tasted. Situated in the hills of the Torree Soli Nou, above the resort of Son Bou it is in a stunning location that is extremely peaceful.

Kate was extremely helpful with all the information I requested and always responded to my emails quickly.

We would definitely recommend this villa and would love to return in the future.

Beautiful villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a group of 10 ladies and loved every minute of our holiday! The villa is spacious and is very well equipped. The bedrooms were lovely, mine was ensuite with a full length mirror and patio doors opening onto the garden - it felt like the little bit of luxury I needed :) The location is ideal for the bars, restaurants, shops and the beach and the view is breath taking! I will definitely be returning and would highly recommend to everyone xx

Villa is beautiful and so well equipped,we had all we needed for a wonderful holiday.
