Fran, John, Ben & Lilly welcome you to our home in Menorca


Find Out More

‘La Casa Blanca’ is situated in the residential urbanisation of Santa Ana, overlooking the entrance to the port of Mahon and within a five minute walk of the lovely fishing port of Calas Fonts.

Calas Fonts

On our doorstep, you will find the picturesque fishing port of Calas Fonts with its wide selection of harbourside restaurants and bars, small boutiques and artisan stalls. This delightful harbour has become a little haven favoured by locals and tourists alike and with its waterside promenade makes it ideal for both daytime and evening strolls.

Es Castell

The old british garrison ‘George Town’, re-named Es Castell, is also only a few minutes walk from the villa. Here you will also find an array of restaurants and bars offering great Spanish tapas at affordable prices together with shops, bars, supermarkets, banks (inc ATM’s), hairdressers, internet shop, ice cream parlour, bakery and chemist. In the town the large renovated town square is still surrounded by the old garrison buildings and a comprehensive military museum telling the island’s rich and varied history.

Mahon

The Port of Mahon is only a ten minute drive away and there is a regular bus service from Es Castell every 30 minutes, or you can catch a water taxi from Calas Fonts. Mahon is full of historical buildings, churches, shops, bars and restaurants. The narrow streets make for an interesting days sightseeing and in the evening you can watch the super yachts moor up for the night in the biggest natural port in the Med and the second, only to Pearl Harbour, in the world. Here you can take a trip on a glass bottomed boat and learn about Menorca’s history or hire your own motorboat.

Things to do


Beaches and Watersports

Cala Padera is an absolute delight for an early morning swim in the sea and is only a stones throw away from our villa. There is also a wooden decking area ideal for sunbathing.

If you head further afield, the Island has many, many beautiful beaches and being only 30 miles long means they can be reached within a 10 to 40 minute drive. The south-east coast has some of the most picturesque and child friendly beaches on the island, with safe shallow bathing ideal for children of all ages. For the more adventurous, there are many watersports including diving, kayaking, paddleboarding and sailing. Son Bou has the largest beach with a good choice of water sports and beach bars.

Unspoilt, idyllic, glistening sand, turquoise water… just about every tourist brochure cliché is actually true when you are talking about the beaches in Menorca. – The Telegraph, 13 Aug 2015

Fiestas and Markets

During the summer months there are numerous fiestas taking place all over the Island. The one in Es Castell is usually held around the 3rd week in July and is well worth a visit as it is one of the biggest on the island. One of the highlights is watching the horses parade through the square, prancing and rearing up on their hind legs to entertain the crowds.

There is a weekly market in the square in Es Castell and twice a week in Mahon during the summer months and lovely craft stalls each evening in Calas Fonts.


Walking and Cycling

Menorca has established itself as a good walking destination with a variety of walks around the whole coast line of the Island known as the Cami de Cavalls or hop on a mountain bike and cycle through the lanes that crisscross the glorious countryside.


Cova d'en Xoroi

An impressive natural space located in a beautiful cliff in the resort of Cala en Porter, Cova d’en Xoroi used to be a prehistoric dwelling, but has now been made into a spectacular bar where you can watch the beautiful sun set or party the night away till dawn in the night club.


Xoriguer Gin Distillery (Mahon)

For much of the 18th century, Menorca was ruled by the British who introduced the custom of distilling gin – and drinking it too. This is the only traditional distillery using copper stills that are more than 100 years old.


San Esteban

Just along the coast from Es Castell lies the picturesque sea hamlet of San Esteban where the military museums of Fort Marlborough and San Felipe are located.


Monte Toro

The highest point on the island.


Parc Natural S'Albufera des Grau

The protected nature reserve around this inland lagoon – home to many species of wetland birds – provides the nucleus of Menorca’s Unesco Biosphere Reserve.


Naveta des Tudons

Menorca has an abundance of prehistoric remains, including the best preserved burial chamber on the island, built around 1000BC.


Car Hire

Car hire is not essential as everything you need to enjoy your holiday is on your doorstep, but if you love coastal walking or want to escape and explore an untouched hidden cove, we do recommend it and can be arranged either in Es Castell or Mahon.
