A beautiful location overlooking this picturesque small Marina. With uninterrupted views over the Marina, cala and headland. Spacious and well designed interior with comprehensively equipped kitchen and large dining area leading directly on to the terrace and pool. Separate comfortable lounge with 2 sets of double doors opening onto the terrace, garden and pool. With 4 double bedrooms all with air con (3 upstairs, one downstairs), all with en-suite shower rooms. The 3 upstairs bedrooms have private terraces overlooking the marina. Mature, well maintained gardens and BBQ area. And only a short walk to join one of the most magnificent stretches of the bridleway Cami de Cavalls. If you are a keen walker, the route from Addaia to Es Grau (whilst requiring some stamina for the 18km walk) is one of the most beautiful walks you'll ever do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Your villa is beautiful, and I can honestly say this as we have stayed in a fair few Villas over the years. It was so clean and comfortable. It is obvious that you have put a lot of thought into it. We did spend a lot of time at the villa watching the boats/people. Sally was happy in the pool - the pool means everything to her . . . . who knows we may just break our trend of not visiting the same place twice!!" Jill G.

"Thank you and we had a really wonderful time, the villa is beautiful. In fact the photos didn't do it justice because the downstairs area was far bigger than we had expected and very comfortable, the furnishings were perfect just enough to make it homely without being cluttered. (loved the wooden fold up outside chairs that rocked - we all want one!). The bedrooms were all a good size with equally good views . . . we felt that we had the best spot in Menorca!" Lucy M.

"For once a villa exactly as described in the advert. Perfect" Amanda B.

Absolutely stunning property - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best property we have ever stayed in. It was truly brilliant and we cannot praise highly enough. Beautifully appointed, visually stunning (owning a visual consultancy this is very important to us), every single detail taken care of. Wonderful location, fantastic places to watch the boats go by, quiet area, yet interesting and stimulating too. Extremely well equipped throughout the villa, everything thought of, lovely touches and surprises and seating areas to relax and chat. Much larger in real life ... very spacious and air conditioning was a godsend. Suited the whole family which can be a challenge with age ranges 10 - 77 and a husband that likes his own space!!... everything was perfect. Great fun in a lovely pool for everyone. The information provided prior to the stay was first class and information at the villa went above and beyond - simply excellent. Port bar great for cool evening drink and Don Carlos restaurant excellent food. Fornells lovely area for eating out and Mahon great for a bit of sightseeing and shopping. Owner communication absolutely fantastic - 5 star. We will definitely return ... not enough superlatives to express how much we loved it.... would enjoy both in and out of season. Thank you Simone for sharing this special place.

Could not have wished for more. Location - perfect. Villa - probably the nicest design we've ever stayed in - and so well equipped. Pool - refreshing!! Really useful Villa Manual with great advice of where to eat etc etc. Will definitely come back. Only weird thing is the villa is listed as being in Es Mercadal on the OD website - when clearly it's in Port Addaia - we suspect this is a quirk of the OD website.

Stunning Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed several times in Las Palmeras and each time we have had the most amazing time...the location is A1 and it has the most fabulous views. The interior is amazing and extremely comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. Would highly recommend!

Amazing holiday in a stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay in this beautiful villa, located right by the sea in Port Adaia. The villa is stunning throughout and very spacious and modern. We used the outdoor kitchen for BBQ's and cooked breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen in the mornings. Such a beautiful villa, perfectly tucked away at the end of the street so lovely and quiet. Can not recommend it enough!

Immaculate,designed for maximum comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time.

The villa is fully equipped, immaculate and very comfortable.

Simone the owner has thought of everything to make sure that you relax and enjoy yourself.

The view over the port is simply stunning.

We dipped into the pool every day and spent quite a lot of time on the many balconies to watch the boats.

For the entertainment, there was something for everyone. I travelled with my 13-year-old daughter and she was kept busy and entertained throughout:

We went kayaking as the facility is practically at our door step and we snorkelled at one of the beaches that was nearby ( Arenal de Castell)

We went on the recommended walks along the coast and that was a very pleasant surprise.

The Villa has movies, books, DVDs and aside from the TV which has a nice selection of tv channels we had Chromecast and so could stream some movies.

We will always remember Las Palmeras because we made some priceless memories there.

Glorious Villa,with a demanding view of the Port.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at this Villa, on two occasions now, We cannot recommend it highly enough. The Villa has just been refurbished,to a high standard,and is maintained impeccably. This building dominates the harbour with fantastic views, with the sun rising at 0645hrs directly onto the terrace, which is fantastic for an early morning breakfast. We arrived early, but everything was in place for our stay. The "Cantina" restaurant, opposite, it just a hop over the wall and the food and staff(Juan) are excellent. Great supermarket, Tapas bar, English/Indian restaurant is a 7 min. walk up the bank. This is an idyllic place if you just want a totally relaxing time with the family.Support/communications from Simone ,the owner, and her support staff were superb.We cannot recommend this Villa high enough. Will we be back........You bet!!!!

Some advise......Book early:)

Car: recommended


Allegedly Menorca has more beaches than Majorca and Ibiza combined! There are local beaches within 5 mins drive from the villa. The safe, sandy and family-friendly beach of Arenal D'en Castell has plenty of family amenities. Na Macaret is smaller and lovely. Then Son Parc beach is c. 15 mins away.


You can fly from 18 UK airports to Mahon. Mahon Airport is c. 20 minute drive. Car hire is essential to explore this island. Flights from the UK: Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Doncaster, Glasgow, Gatwick, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Exeter, Luton, London City, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds Bradford, Newcastle, Southampton, Stansted.


Mahon the capital is a 15-20 min drive away. Ciutadella about 30-40 minutes. Fornells fishing village, famous for good restaurants, is 15 mins drive.

Further Details:

You can walk to a range of local shops, bars and restaurants. There is also the Port Bar just the other side of the marina. Close enough to walk to in minutes and far enough not to be noisy.

There are also some fabulous restaurants on the islands - full listing available in the villa manual on arrival.

Historic Mahon - the capital is a 15-20 min drive away and well worth a thorough explore. Great little shops and fabulous food/fish markets, endless cafes and restaurants, sweeping stairways to more splendid views over the port.

There is some beautiful countryside and wildlife on Menorca making it popular with walkers and bird watchers. Es Grau and the stunning Albufera Natural Reserve is about 15 minutes away. Menorca itself is a walker's heaven and the magnificent Cami de Cavalls can be reached in c. 7 minutes walk up the hill behind the villa. I challenge visitors to take the 18km walk to Es Grau - absolutely stunning - but perhaps best avoided in the heat of July and August!

Fishing and game fishing is also available in Mahon.

Kayaks can be hired in the Marina in front of the villa to explore the Cala. There are several scuba diving centres on the island which run daily trips to some of the best dive sites in the Med.

I also recommend the Jeep Safari - great way to see hidden parts of the island and enjoy a really exciting off-road experience.

100% positive feedback from 2009-2012 visitors (English, French, Swiss, Norwegian, American) "the photos don't do it justice" . . . "we felt we had the best spot on Menorca" . . . "will definitely be back - thank you". And honestly, many of our guests simply don't move far from the villa "this is the best place just to sit and watch the world go back"
