Fantastic House - Best Buy

  • 5 of 5

If your wish is to stay somewhere slightly different and more characteristic than the coast-based apartment resorts, and you enjoy being at the heart of the (peaceful) city, in a special home, look no further. I did some serious research before booking this house, and you'll probably won't find anything better.

First of all, the house obviously is very special, it being partly cut out in the citywall. It is in good shape. All pictures and descriptions are representative. The balcony is right under a designated city-"mirador" (viewing spot), which indicates how special the views are. The management is well organised, with apt and swift responses, clear information and agreements, and available at all times.

Add to this that the house is on one of the best locations you can imagine. Below the house, you walk right into the touristy area of the harbour, with the ferry's, shops, restaurants, tourist information, and touring boats. Above the house, you step directly into the old centre of Mahon with the shops, monuments, museums and café's. The big medieval building above the house is a monastery turned into a shopping mall, including little shops for all your groceries and Menorquin specialties and a big supermarket in the lower floor. On your (very short) way there you'll pass a bakery and a fish market.

The neighbours (the yellow building) is the popular cafe Mirador, which attracts a predominantly younger, slightly alternative crowd (which in Spain still includes famillies, baby's and grandpa's) and also programs live concerts. My tip however is to have your morning coffee at the cafe right above the terrace of the apartment; it's the best! They also serve the regular Spanish tapas and pincho's, and their terrace is a lively and fun spot to be.

So for me, this was a great place to be based aswell from where to explore Menorca. I spent a few days visiting Mahon and it's sights (which all can easily be done by foot) and then cruised the rest of the magnificent island by car.

Some practical info: paid parking (city centre) is identified by blue markings. You have to pay with cash money and can park for a maximum of 2 hours, which costs a reasonable €1,60. I allways had a spot right in front of the house. For free parking, you drive a few hundred meters along the water, a less than 10-minute walk. The P-spots which are indicated on Menorquin maps, are free parking-areas. GPS: use "Costa de ses Voltas" to reach the house.

Etwas besonders

  • 5 of 5

Ich war noch nicht von eine Ferienwohnung entäuscht (miterweile ich mache mein Urlaub nur so, und wähle immer ausgefallene Locations), aber diese war echt etwas auf unsere Herz geschnitten. Achtung, ich meckere nicht wegen Kleinigkeiten, wenn das gesamte stimmt.

Das Haus selber hat besondere architektonische Qualität und ist in sehr gutes Zustand. Das Aussicht ist wunderschön und die Versogungsmöglichkeiten ganz nah- das Fischmarkt und das Einkaufzentrum in das Karmelitenkloster sind etwas 200m weg.

Die einzige weniger gute Sache ist das Verkehr in Mao- enge Einwegstraßen (die Schattenseite von Romantik) und weniger gratis Parkmöglichkeiten. Falls jemand nicht unbedingt ein Auto braucht, ist besser kein zu vermieten.

Wir danken unser Besizer für alles, und insbesonders fur die gute Organisation.
