About Tom Gordon

My wife and I have 5 children (some now gown up with children of their own!) We live in England in a very old farmhouse in Dunsfold and so it it lovely to have the contrast of La Calera. We run a small residential property company in England called Fulham Property Company. We both enjoy house planning and interior design and next we would like to buy a ski chalet in Les Gets for winter holidays in the Alps.

Why Tom Gordon chose Sant Lluís

We have been coming to Menorca for the last 25 years. We have probably stayed in most of the villas in and around Binibeca and so we knew what we were looking for when we decided to buy. When we saw La Calera we instantly were drawn to its peaceful disposition, the sense of space and it's views out to sea. Whilst the villa is currently very comfortable we are planning to carry out extensive refurbishment work over this winter, including re-furnishing the property to create a really beautiful and comfortable environment for our family and guests. We think that Binibeca is the jewel in the crown of Menorca. Then whole surrounding area is a mass of glorious beaches and coves, some only accessible by sea.

What makes this villa unique

The main benefit is the space and location. it's close enough to the beaches to easily walk, but far enough away to feel private and not overlooked. The property is built on a double plot so there is plenty of garden space and places to sit if you want to just be by yourself. We have also just bought the plot in front to preserve our view and we plan to create an access through from the villa so that is can serve as a second driveway. We plan to plant do a bit of landscaping and plant fruit trees there later this year.

Perfect family villa

  • 5 of 5

La Calera is conveniently placed for local amenities but with a feeling of privacy and tranquility.

Inside, the bedrooms are well proportioned and comfortable with most en-suites being modern.

The bed linen and towels are of a high quality and beautifully clean.

The kitchen is well equipped, plenty of glasses etc if the villa is at capacity. There was a welcome pack which was most welcome! The separate laundry area was great space wise and the use of a second fridge and freezer was great for stocking up and extra drinks.

It was also good to have purified drinking water from a tap which saved buying endless bottles of water.

The sitting area was comfortable and cosy.

Outside, this villa is unbeatable. Through the mature garden you catch glimpses of the beautiful views. There is more than enough seating for 15 people to relax ,and at meal times.

The pool is stunning and was enjoyed by young and old alike. There are plenty of sun beds.

It’s just a short walk to a well stocked, small supermarket and some restaurants, we enjoyed El Faro twice as a family.

A villa for all generations to make happy memories.

Perfect villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This villa could not have suited our family of 3 generations better. Everything about it is generous from the spacious terrace and living areas, to the 7 bedrooms all with ensuites. It is situated a very short walk from a seaside village with an excellent patisserie/bakery and several good restaurants and bars. The beach is another 5 minutes walk from there. However, the large swimming pool at the villa was just as popular. Our grandchildren enjoyed the toys and playhouse and we all appreciated the comfortable beds and pillows and the supply of toiletries unusual in this kind of house let. The house is attractively furnished throughout. In the evenings we watched the sun going down beyond the sea from the lovely terrace. Highly recommended.

Wonderful time at wonderful La Calera

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Menorca and we selected La Calera as we needed a large villa for a party of 12, close to the airport and close to the beach. The description of both La Calera and its location surpassed our every expectation. The villa was spotless, the rooms all spacious with character and a personal touch all mixed in, the swimming pool is massive, the games room a really nice touch and the view from the upper veranda was superb. I could go on & on but suffice to say the description of the villa is exactly what it is in reality. The owner, Tom Gordon, was helpful beyond belief in terms of making specific dates available to us for a mid week check-in; in addition he provided much help in terms of baby cot, local taxi services, best local supermarkets and more. This was really important and he made great efforts to ensure we felt fully comfortable before our arrival. The location is actually brilliant - 3 mins walk to the rocky seafront for views along the coast, 8 mins walk to the local Spar supermarket (which is surprisingly very well stocked) and 4-5 local restaurants which overlook either a small cove of Cala Torret or the small harbour of Binibeca (we dined at 3 of them and the food and service was great) and 10-12 mins walk to the small beach of Binibeca which is great for kids and families alike. Water sports equipment hire and supervision, plus boat / kayak hire is also available. There is even a small train shaped vehicle that pulls carriages along the coast during mid June to early Sept which runs every 45 mins or so - nearest pickup stop is 8 mins walk. The train costs 7 euro for a round trip and links you to the slightly larger town of Cala Binibequer and back along the coast to Punta Prima where there are more shops and more restaurants .. and a small evening market. We used the train twice otherwise we walked locally to what we needed. It you stay on the train for the round trip it takes 45 mins. Taxi from Punta Prima to La Calera is around 7.50 euros ... taxi from Mahon airport to La Calera is approx 23 euros. As mentioned previously, the descriptions of what is around locally was 100% accurate from Tom.

We only stayed at La Calera for 1 week and therefore did not have time to try a few other restaurants nor the water-sports on this occasion but with such a wonderful villa, wonderfully large pool and constant sunshine it was perfect. I highly recommend La Calera - it will not disappoint.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday here. The villa was beautiful and everything we had hoped for. The supermarket nearby was quite expensive as the only one within walking distance but had everything we needed.

Incredible Villa, five star luxury

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at la Calera as a celebration holiday for my parents Golden wedding anniversary, 16 of us in total ranging from 1 to 71!

The villa is extremely beautiful with gorgeous, tasteful furnishings and each room is what you would expect if you were to stay in a 5 star hotel.

The swimming pool is huge with lots of loungers surrounding it, we rarely ventured out as we had everything we needed for the whole family at the Villa.

The older children loved the games room whilst the younger ones played endlessly in the little play house which gave a great shady space for them.

Overall we loved everything and would love to return one day.

Truly stunning villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly stunning villa and we loved so much about it. The villa was beautifully furnished in a comfortable yet understated elegant way. The pool was a great size for a large group and wonderful also for serious swimming. The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and it was so lovely going away in a group of 11 (we had some singles and some doubles but absolutely everyone was happy with their rooms). The games room was also very well used and the second large fridge was fabulous. As with most things it is all in the small detail and that is what made this a really great place to holiday. Unusually this is somewhere we would come back to again. The kitchen is well stocked with enough crockery and glassware (with good size G&T glasses). The fact that the kitchen was so well equipped made it so much easier catering for a large group.There were also comfortable beds, good quality pillows, a great stereo and even a choice of sun hats!

In addition Tom and Sally-Anne were extremely attentive to our needs from the moment that we booked but also throughout our stay.

PS the photos don't do it justice and you really are a very short walk to all that you can possibly need.
