Villa in Cala Galdana, Menorca - Peaceful Location, 5 Mins Walk to the Beach
About Alison Robinson
I live in England with my husband, 2 children and our 7 year old pet Westie called Milo. I work part time at a local school while my husband works as project manager in London. When we aren't working we spend as much time at our villa in Menorca, enjoying the beaches, countryside and picturesque towns.
Alison Robinson purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Alison Robinson chose Cala Galdana
We were looking for a great location for a family holiday when our children. My husband mentioned how he had a fabulous holiday in Cala Galdana in Menorca when he was a child. We went back and all fell in love with the island again and were lucky enough to find Villa Mir for sale 3 minutes from the apartment we were renting. The villa has a perfect location near the beach and resort facilities but in a quiet secluded spot.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is just 5 minutes walk from the fabulous horseshoe beach and resort of Cala Galdana and is situated in a central but secluded area. This means all of the resort facilities are walking distance but you are far enough to enjoy your own company in the villa. We can arrange car or coach transport to and from the villa/airport and our friendly management agency can purchase your shopping for you ahead of your visit so all is ready when you arrive.

Great for families with young children
This is a very popular and busy resort. The villa is homely, no-frills furnishing, with gated child-safe pool (only a little more than 1m deep). Pool is plastic lined and wooden decking and showing its age. There is a small TV connected to a DVD player but no stations or streaming services connected; our very young kids used their iPads connected to the WiFi when they needed a bit of video R&R. A/C in bedrooms but not in the main area, but that proved not to be a problem. Car parking in high season/ peak times was sometimes difficult. Reserved space for 2 small cars or one large, but what can you do if someone else parks there? Easy access to the main beach. The nearest hypermarket is in Ciutadella if you are planning to self-cater on fresh fish, meat etc.
An amazing villa
We have stayed many times at Villa Mir. Yet again we’ve had another fantastic holiday. Perfect location. Ease of transfer to the villa arranged by Alison and Marc and knowing Les is around if we need any advice is so reassuring. We would definitely recommend Villa Mir
Found Alison and Marc very helpful when booking and Les the manager looked after us too .
Great villa in a great location would definitely go back .
This is the second time I have stayed at the villa, but the first time with a young family. The gated off pool and patio areas were ideal and the location is perfect with young children. The beach and cafes were only a few minutes walk away. The villa itself is clean, comfortable and well equipped. We will be back again
A really lovely villa
We had a very enjoyable stay in this really lovely villa. It is comfortable and well-equipped, and very close to the beach and the resort. Our family loved it!
Perfect family holiday
This was our fourth stay here over the past 6 years and we loved it as always. Perfect location, quiet resort and ideal accomodation for young families.
Many thanks for the great feedback !
