Along one of the leafy residential lanes of Cala Morell, just 1.1km from the steps that lead down to the sheltered cove beach of this picturesque local beauty spot, we discovered Hidra, a beautifully presented home which sits amidst a pretty garden of lawns, shrubs and palm trees.

The immaculate interior immediately welcomes with a delightful sense of style, care and attention to detail. The deep wooden beams that span gently sloping ceilings add an almost cottage-like ambience to rooms that are dressed with the most stylish of furnishings. Attractive fabrics of check and floral perfectly compliment solid wood pieces whilst high ceilings and a light pastel décor add a pleasing sense of spaciousness.

Overlooking the pool and lawned garden, a covered terrace sits conveniently alongside the living room and forms the ideal spot for dining al fresco. Facing south, both this terrace and the garden that lies beyond it look out onto a pleasing backdrop of pine woods and are perfectly positioned to enjoy the sunshine.

A pleasant walk through this attractive coastal neighbourhood will bring you to the waterfront, where you have the choice of soaking up the ocean vista from the pretty coved bay or one of the levelled rock platforms that lie below the cliffs. Also in Cala Morell is a snack bar and restaurant, although for a wide range of excellent dining options you will no doubt find yourself heading for the medieval stone flagged streets of the historic harbour town of Ciutadella, which is just a 10 minute drive away.

Great Things to Do Near Hidra

Visit the Necropolis

which is just a few minutes walk from the villa and is fascinating. The site is made up of 14 different caves, some with carvings, pillars and intricately decorated doorways.

Algaiarens-La Vall

Is just a short drive from Hidra. This area of natural beauty has 2 beaches which are great for swimming and snorkelling and various nature trails through the pine forest. Follow the sign to the `mirador` from the car park for spectacular views.

Walk to Punta Nati

along the Cami de Cavalls. The start of the path is just up the road from the Necropolis and the walk takes just a few hours. Look out for the monument to the General Chanzy, which was a mail ship that sank off the coast there in 1910.

Watch the sun go down

at Punta Nati. The locals say that this is the best place on the Island to see the sun set.

Walk along the clifftops to the Punta de S`Escullar

where you will find one of the largest colonies of Cory's Shearwater in the western Mediterranean.

Explore the south coast by boat

There are daily trips from Cala en Bosch along the south coast to Cala Galdana that call into to all of the bays on the way. Lunch is provided on some trips and there are plenty of opportunities for swimming and snorkelling.

Have lunch in Fornells

Especially if you really enjoy good seafood. The restaurants along the harbour provide a wide range of local dishes and the views are not to be missed.

Hire a bike

and cycle to the beach instead of taking the car or follow some of the clearly marked cycle routes that can be seen all over Menorca. Maps can be picked up from the Tourist offices and there are routes to suit all levels

Spend a day at the Cap de Cavalleria

An area of natural interest due to the number of archeological remains found there. The little port here, Sa Nitja, was where the Romans landed when they reached Menorca and the remains of the trading town that grew up around it are still being excavated. Once you have explored the area, relax on the beautiful beach - don`t forget your mask and snorkel.

Visit Monte Toro

This is a must do for anyone visiting Menorca. The Island's highest point offers the most fantastic views of the whole Island and even over to Mallorca on a clear day. The mountain is home to the Sanctuary of the Verge de Toro, as well as an excellent cafe/bar and a few gift shops.

Take a trip around the harbour in Mahon

in a glass bottomed boat. The second largest natural harbour in the world is just stunning and steeped in history and atmosphere.

For a change of scenery go to Favaritx

where the landscape takes on a spectacular lunar quality. In contrast to the rugged coastline around the lighthouse, there are 2 beautiful beaches just a short walk along the coast heading south, Presili and Tortuga. These beaches are completely `uncontaminated` by tourist installations so you would need to take all supplies and equipment with you but this also means that the area does not get busy.

Try something different

and go paddleboarding. Trips are available to suit all levels of ability from the beach at Cala Morell.

Stroll around Ciutadella's old town centre

taking your street guide with you, and enjoy all the lovely old buildings, especially the Cathedral and the Town Hall.

From the roundabout at the edge of Ferreries

follow the signs to San Patrici, where you can sample and buy their traditionally made cheese, and their own label wine. Whilst there visit the hillside sculpture garden in the St. Patrici farm, a project worked from white marble to mark Menorca's UNESCO Biosphere Reserve award received in 1993

Fiestas!

Ciutadella celebrates its main festival in honour of its Patron Saint, Sant Joan, on the 23 and 24 June. Over the two days, following Minorcan tradition, the town's streets and squares are filled with horses, music, religious ceremonies, hustle and bustle, merry-making and people. Enjoy the lively atmosphere, enjoy a `pomada` or two, dance in the streets and celebrate along with the locals
