Pets belonging to guests or friends are strictly not permitted at the property under any conditions. Please do not feed the local cats if these stray onto the property as they would be badly accustomed and could be a nuisance for guests with small children.

My wife and I have been visiting Menorca for the last 8 years. We immediately fell in love with the unspoilt nature of the island and searched for our rural retreat for 3 years. We stumbled across this wonderful yet derelict property and were immediately drawn to its convenient location, quiet rural setting, heritage status and Mediterranean landscape.
We are both involved with property restoration professionally in the UK. As a chartered landscape architect I am treating this a very personal challenge. This is our Mediterranean 'landscape laboratory' where we are seeking to develop wonderful gardens to suit the outdoor living that our young family loves when on holiday.
We have restored this very special piece of Menorcan heritage to the highest architectural standards. We have equipped the house with all mod-cons and with highest quality furnishings. This has been a very personal and exquisite restoration which we hope you will enjoy as much as we do.
