Torralba d‘en Salort is a wonderful country home, situated just a ten-minute drive from the sandy coves of Menorca’s southern coastline. This spacious four-bedroom, two-bathroom villa sleeps eight guests comfortably. The property dates back to the 17th century and has been recently restored. Its traditional architecture pleasantly contrasts with the property’s contemporary design.
Menorca holds a strategic position in the Mediterranean; it has been a constant stop off point for trade in this part of the world for centuries, stretching right back to the first Bronze Age settlers. Subsequent generations have built stone structures, burial chambers, standing stones in the Talaiotic period, and settlements of all types scattered over the island.
Ferreries is a small community situated in the centre of Menorca, it is the highest town on the island and features an historic old town area, with cobbled streets and multi-coloured houses. Ferreries was founded in the 18th century when the Church of St Bartholomew was built. An annual festival for St Bartholomew is held at the end of August.
In 1993 Menorca was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, mainly due to the island’s exceptional environment. The island displays typical Mediterranean characteristics, including gorges, dense woodland, sand dune systems, wet grass and marshlands, and superb soil that fosters growth from wild herbs, mushrooms, fruit trees and a variety of native flora.
