Perks for the Parents

This converted former chapel puts design at the forefront combining beautiful original archways and high vaulted ceilings with touches of industrial chic to create a truly unique Menorcan base. It sleeps 12. The interiors are notably spacious for its central location in Menorca’s capital, incorporating several interior and exterior chill-out zones including sun terraces with a pool and jacuzzi, 2 living rooms and a fun central gathering space with floor cushions and blankets – ideal for some yoga or meditation. The top floor is set up as a kids’ dorm room with TV, giving the younger ones – and adults – some designated space of their own. The villa is just minutes’ walk to the pretty city centre of Mahón which has pavement cafes and stylish boutiques as well as museums, restaurants, bars, shops and food halls to explore. The villa’s large open-plan kitchen is ideal for cooking up family feasts using the fresh, local ingredients to be found in Mahón's markets.

Why Kids Love it

There is plenty of space for everyone at this roomy 4 floor villa. Kids are treated to their own private living area with a top floor all to themselves, complete with 4 beds ideal for sleepover style arrangements, TV, ensuite and their own sun terrace. There are several living areas, 2 with satellite TVs so there is no compromising over entertainment choices, while the sociable kitchen/diners and al-fresco dining area are ideal for cooking and gathering together. The villa benefits from a pool, rare for the area, which doubles up as a fun private splash zone for the kids. The city of Mahón is an easy walk away, even for little ones, and has plenty to tempt them out with daily glass bottom boat and catamaran excursions from the harbor. Family snorkeling trips can be arranged as well as local pony trekking, cycling, sea kayaking and jeep safaris so there is plenty to keep the more adventurous family members occupied.

Style Notes

Industrial chic former chapel which nods to its past in the shape of beautiful arched windows and doorways, high vaulted ceilings and beautiful wood balustrades. Black metal railings, lighting and furnishings add a sleek contemporary feel while the walls are white washed to create a light and airy feel throughout. Art lovers will appreciate the modernist paintings, drawings and prints adorning the walls while woven baskets, rugs and floor cushions add a touch of Berber-style homeliness. We love the variety of living spaces, from the calm chill-out zones and comfy sofa/TV rooms to the relaxed al-fresco terrace dining and fireplace nooks ideal for late night drinks and chat. The pool offers a wonderful spot to come and cool down in after a morning exploring the villa’s charming Menorcan city setting.

Menorca, Spain

Quieter, smaller and more peaceful than its neighboring Balearic islands, Menorca is dotted with sandy coves and surrounded by sparkling turquoise seas. This is the perfect place for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts: hike across protected natural parks, cycle along remote roads, or swim in secluded beaches. Visit the historic town of Ciutadella for authentic restaurants and take a boat out from one of the island’s many harbors - this is the perfect place to get away from it all.
