About Janine Twidale
My wife and I live outside Aylesbury with our two boys. I work in London and my wife works at the local village school. We love our holidays and go skiing and to Menorca at least once each year.
Janine Twidale purchased this Apartment in 1970
Why Janine Twidale chose Binibequer
My parents bought the property in 1971. They were one of the first English people to buy property in Menorca. My brother and I were aged just 2 and 3 but my parents found the beaches and the Island generally very safe and family friendly. We spent every summer there throughout my childhood and my wife and I have now taken the property on and take our children there every year. We and they love it because we can do our own thing. We do not feel part of a crowd. We make friends with other families but also can have our own time on beaches or various swimming pools close by. We have travelled a lot but cannot think of anywhere more tranquil.
What makes this Apartment unique
As the apartment was one of the first built, it is right on the coastline and has unspoilt views of the sea. You can dive in the sea within a couple of minutes. It is also 10 minutes walk from the apartment to a lovely beach. The balcony is where we enjoy a sundowner, listening to the lap of the water, watching the yachts go back to Mahon and, of course, watching the sun go down! Before or after that we usually eat on the roof terrace which is large and where we have had a BBQ built. There are also many restaurants within walking distance that provide a variety of cuisines. There is a supermarket nearby easily accessible by foot that provides all you would need.

A Wonderful Place
We stayed in this lovely apartment in April 2015, needing a quiet space away, and this was exactly what we found. The tourist season doesn't begin until May 1st so many restaurants and the supermarket were not open yet. Also, the buses were not running often, so having a car was very necessary. We enjoyed the peace of the island at this time, which was so easy to explore, the roads and beaches were empty, and Menorca is simply beautiful in the spring.
The apartment really has a warm and friendly feel to it. It is perfectly positioned overlooking the sea, very comfortable and well equipped for self catering. Cala Torret is a great find, full of kind people and a very safe area.
Thank you for a special holiday.

What a view!
The location and views from this apartment are unsurpassed! You have everything on your doorstep, shop, restaurants, (wonderful) bakery and a short walk to a lovely sandy beach, with a great beach bar. We enjoyed sundowners on the apartment balcony overlooking the sea, and swam from the rocks literally a stone's throw away. The roof terrace is a great suntrap for those wanting to work on their tan too, or for evening meals.
Just what we wanted
Fabulous place. It was really peaceful, even in mid season, and the people were so friendly. The apartment has a wonderful view, right over the sea. A small supermarket is on the doorstep as are some wonderful restaurants. El Faro, just below offered good food, and the owners were great. We also recommend going 10 minutes in land to La Caraba - Michelin star quality food, at a quarter of the cost! The beach is only 10 minute walk away and beautiful. We hope to return one day.
Special interest holidays: The capital, Mahon, is the deepest harbour in the Mediterranean and is believed to be the deepest or second deepest in the world. The highest point on the island is a famous monastery called Monte Toro which is still an active monastery. There are many battlements and a prison that show how the British and Spanish fought for the island over the years. Coast/Beach: The cove, with ladders and entry bays, is within two minutes (maximum). The beach, called Los Buccaneros, which is very safe and has a restaurant/bar within 10 minutes comfortable walk/4 minutes drive. The beach is clean, not large and not overcrowded. There are no hotels by the beach, which remains family owned. Previous guests have advised that we should highlight the proximity of the supermarket which is within a short walking distance and well stocked. Travel: The only airport is Mahon (Mao), the capital of Menorca, which is 20 minutes from the apartment. Taxis are easily available. One does not need a car. Distances: The apartment is located in Cala Torret which itself has a number of restaurants and a supermarket. The nearest village is Binibeca and is approximately 1 mile away from Cala Torret to the west. There are also a couple of villages to the east, namely, Biniancolla and Punta Prima, which are 1 and 2 miles away respectively. Further Details: There is a cash point in Binibeca, also shops and supermarkets and intricate alleyways - just one mile away or, you can go into St Luis where there are a few banks with cash points, shops and supermarkets.
