About Emma

We live and work in the mountains of Switzerland but have always loved the seaside. In 2012 we purchased our beautiful Villa in Menorca. Menorca has always been an island we have visited and is a very special place, with close family connections. We feel very privileged to spend time in this truly wonderful location. As a family with young children we know the requirements of a good family holiday and feel our property in Menorca ticks all these boxes. We hope you enjoy sharing our much loved holiday home.

Emma purchased this villa in 2012

Why Emma chose San Luis

Location for us is always very important. Binibeca Nou has the benefit of the facilities you need within walking distance and a stunning beach. The capital Mahon and the airport are only 15 minutes drive away. Our villa has a fantastic location with lots to do on your doorstep but without being spoilt or over developed. It is also important to us that your holiday is relaxing so we ensure you have all the basic household items you need to start you off such as washing up liquid, toilet rolls and bin bags.

What makes this villa unique

With small children I need to be able to walk to the beach rather than getting in a hot car. I need Internet access and (sorry to say) emergency children's TV! I also want a sea view, a pool and a sun terrace. I want to be able to walk to a shop and a variety of good restaurants. I want to be somewhere unspoiled and attractive. Luckily we have all of this and more.

Very good villa in a fantastic location for families looking for a quiet relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

Emma was really helpful all through the booking process and answered all questions we had very promptly, we even had a chat on the phone which I found really reassuring and she told me lots about the area and the villa.

We (two adults and a 3 year old) stayed in the villa for two weeks at the beginning of September.

The villa was clean and welcoming on arrival and we found everything we needed, including a information book about island and area along with a bottle of wine and pg tips! We spent the two weeks exploring the island (which has some beautiful beaches and towns) as well as lazing by the pool and evening's on the beach. Everything you could need is in walking distance from the villa such as a couple of supermarkets, bakery, and a few restaurants as well as a superb little beach but we had a car to get out and about a little more too.

I liked the layout of the villa with a small person as it was easy to watch him and there was space to play without being immediately next to the pool meaning we could relax a bit. The cooking facilities are basic but well equipped with lots of choice of pots and pans etc. Bedrooms were comfortable and both bathrooms had very good showers. The pool was in a good sunny location but was a little tired in places with a few cracked tiles / uneven sufaces but it didn't stop us enjoying it.

I'd happy recommend the villa and will consider using again if we return to Menorca.

A Little Bit Of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Binebeca Nou - a hidden gem. Truly a refreshing taste of tranquility, nature and all that a holiday should be.

"Casita Roquero" is situated slightly set back from the beach - which is just a 5 minute walk. In a quiet cluster of tasteful villas and casitas. The photos are accurate.

The attention to detail by Emma the owner is apparent from the onset. The arrangements with the booking, the instruction booklet at the Casita and her wonderful taste which carries on through from the Internal decoration to the patio and terrace. Lovely plants and flowers !

It is close to Calla Torret a small town with wonderful restaurants a supermarket and a bakery. Alternatively you can go into Binebeca Vell a small resort. We preferred the former but it is a matter of choice.

The pool is a lovely size and warm !

I would highly recommend this property - especially for families or couples who want a more tranquil holiday.

We snorkelled and took an excursion on a kayak - both are a must.

We will return.

Thank you Emma.

Very nice house in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two very enjoyable weeks in this charming villa. The house was spotlessly clean on arrival and all facilities were present and correct as described. The owner has provided a helpful manual and notices here and there explaining how to use the washing machine, cooker, TV etc as well as maps and guides to the island. Linen was changed and the house was cleaned at the end of the first week. There is a contact number for the owner's local British ex-pat agent who very kindly talked me through the process of changing a gas bottle!

Indoors, the open plan living/dining/kitchen area is spacious and comfortable; both bathrooms are modern with the choice of a shower cubicle or a bath if you prefer. The solar-heated hot water was plentiful at all hours: whether showering after a day on the beach or washing up the breakfast dishes, it never ran cold.

Outdoors there is plenty of space to eat and sunbathe in privacy including an enormous roof terrace with views of the sea. The house is one of a semi-detached pair, which means you share the standard 8x4m pool with the neighbouring house. Our stay overlapped with three different neighbours, one of whom seemed slightly taken aback the first time they found my son swimming in the pool, but it was no problem for us and in this great location you won't want to spend all your time on site anyway. And so to the surroundings ...

The house is in the quiet villa development of Binibeca Nou. The road is quiet with no through traffic - it is a winding loop that only serves the hundred or so villas of various shapes and sizes in the Binibeca Nou urbanisation, arranged attractively on a gentle hillside that slopes down to the sea. The house is five minutes' walk from Binibeca's sandy beach where children can swim safely. Eating out: well, you are spoilt for choice: the villa is roughly equidistant between Cala Torret in one direction and Binibeca Vell in the other, each of which has a cluster of half a dozen restaurants, all tending towards the upmarket end of the spectrum and serious about their food (but still very relaxed and welcoming). A particular recommendation is Pedro's in Cala Torret: go there early in your stay and ask to reserve a balcony table on any night they can fit you in - you need to book several days ahead but I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Binibeca has a wonderful beach and we had the most amazing holiday in this fabulous villa. It has everything you need and a luxurious pool to boot. The owners are really helpful and they have thought of all the essentials, right down to a bbq area. You are well within a short stroll to the beach and a local shop depending which direction you like to walk. We had an extremely happy time and great weather. I totally recommend this villa for the location and it's amenities. Happy holiday to anyone who rents this villa.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was just just right for us, clean, attractive, conveniently situated near the beach and shops but in a quiet area. The spacious layout of the terrace, living area and the two bathrooms was great. The villa pool is shared but it is big so it worked fine for us and we went to a different beach almost every day.

There are several restaurants in walking distance and two grocery shops, bakery and gorgeous little cafe providing coffee and the best chocolate croissants ever! The beach bar is a perfect spot for lunch or a pre-dinner drink.

We thoroughly recommend this villa, it was a perfect base for a relaxing holiday on a beautiful island.

Thank you Emma and Family!

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Binibeca beach is a very short 4 minute stroll away from the Villa. The beach is very beautiful, your archetypal white sand, turquoise sea, cove shaped beach. There are many stunning beaches to visit on the island of Menorca but it is nice to know that the closest one is one of the best.

Travel:

We recommend car hire even though It is only about 10 minutes walk to local restaurants, supermarkets and cash point.

The airport is only a 20 minute drive away.

Distances:

You can walk to most amenities such as restaurants (Cala Torret), cafes, small village shops and cash point. The larger supermarkets require a car to get to.

Menorca is extremely beautiful with lots of places to visit and explore.

Saint Lluis 10 minutes, Fornells 25 minutes, Mahon 15 minutes (approx)

Further Details:

For the more active of you there are also plenty of water sports from kayaking, snorkeling and diving to cycling and walking. Menorca is such a fantastic place to visit and if you come once I am sure you will be back again and again. The island really does have everything you could want from a holiday with something to offer everyone. There is a local dive school and kayaks can be hired from the beach in high season. There is a brand new Water park in Punta Prima, with some activities for small children and great rides for those over 1m20.
