About Elsa C.

I live in Barcelona (Spain) where I work as a professor of English literature and as a writer.

I go with my husband twice a year to our house in Menorca. The isle means for me a good book reading in the porch at sunset, long walks by the beach or the "Cami de cavalls" (old horse-road), swimming at the beach or the pool, petite soirées on the porch and contemplation of the beauty of nature. This is my way to sharpen my senses, free my mind and revitalize my body.

Elsa C. purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Elsa C. chose Es Mercadal

This house has been our summer place for several years. We have furnished and decorated it for our own enjoyment. When our children grew older and became independent we started renting it. Our purpose is to make our guests feel at home in a warmth, stylish and comfortable atmosphere.

What makes this apartment unique

The beauty of its location, surroundings and views.

It is located in a very quiet area, but close to the beach. Both bedrooms have great views to the sea. Flat 42" screen tv with satelite.

Full kitchen with cooking utensils, dishes, pots/pans, kettle, microwave and stove...

Wifi and good books.

De los mejores en los que he estado

  • 5 of 5

He estado este pasado abril en Menorca y me he alojado en este encantador apartamento. Puedo asegurar sin ninguna duda que es uno de los mejores en los que he estado. La decoración es cómoda, elegante y original en los detalles. Me encantaron las fotografías y las ilustraciones. Lo recomiendo 100%. Y la urbanización es preciosa. El jardín estaba lleno de flores, con rosas de todos los colores. La piscina muy linda, también. Sin duda volveremos para poder disfrutar más de la playa y la piscina.

Lovely, ideal, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at costa arenal, very friendly, clean, pretty complex. Not too big, not over crowded although we did travel mid July so schools had yet to break up.

The apartments were spacious enough for 4 adults and a child. Had everything we needed in there apart from a couple of small things which was sorted very quickly so could not complain at all. Pretty little garden, ideal to sit in and relax.

Pools were very nice and clean the only thing I struggled there with was the surrounding tiles to the pool were slippy when wet so with a 2year old that wasn't ideal. The surrounding grass area to the pool was really nice though.

Ideal location 2 mins walk to the little supermarket and max of 5 mins walk to the beautiful horseshoe bay of which was stunning. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, all of which we ate at served good food.

Hiring a car to see the island is perfect the island is small and extremely quiet on the roads, it has some amazing coves to check out. Local Bus service was limited so would suggest a car if you like to explore

I would definitely return to this complex and Menorca. Loved it!

Peaceful and great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week here. Apartment was clean and peaceful with all the cooking utensils were needed. Lovely gardens with swimming pool, which we had pretty much to our selves. Would have been perfect for us if the gardens were a little more children friendly ie. a small playpark but understand that's not always possible. Perfect location for the gorgeous beach with sheltered bay - perfect for young children. We had a great time and would recommend to our friends.

Very well positioned , homely , clean, and relaxed

  • 5 of 5

This was are third stay in three years , it's like another home , with all you could wish for .beautifully set in gardens meticulously maintained by the property caretaker. He takes great care and puts in lot of work to retain the high standard of property , gardens and pool. For the kids they meet up with friends they made before and make new ones , they are never board. I like to find a shaded area under the well pruned pine trees with a book, we all enjoy the immaculate pool. plenty of sun beds for all. There is a beautiful beach just down the hill. And restaurants nearby with a high standard of food at fair prices. Fantastic walks round the coast. Snorkelling with fish in crystal clear waters. I would recommend this apartment to any of my friends and family. Elsa has always been superb with accommodating us ,is trusting and loyal. Every year there is improvements , like this year for example free wifi , beach towels , toys for the kids and all you need for a family trip to the beach. Of course we hope to return again next year .

Arenal d'en Castells
Car: recommended

Arenal d'en Castell is a small town in the Minorca Northern Coast. Its main attraction is the beauty of the beach. Shaped like a horseshoe, it is approximately 700 metres long, with crystal clear and shallow waters. It has been awarded blue flag in recognition of the water quality, the cleanliness of the beach, the services available to summer visitors and an its environmental sustainable management.

The Camí de cavalls, an ancient path of 185 km long that surrounds Menorca following its coast, passes just behind the apartment. Decidedly, it is the best way to discover the natural wealth and heritage of an island that gathers almost every existing ecosystem in the Mediterranean for which it had been declared Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993.
