Ideally situated for those looking to be within easy access of coastal amenities, this smart home enjoys a pleasing position in the residential neighbourhood of Cales Piques.  On the northern edge of the family-friendly resort of Cala en Blanes, with pretty countryside stretching beyond its streets to the north and the sea glistening invitingly to the west, this appealing area enjoys the advantage of being just a short walk from the lively shops, bars and restaurants of the resort itself.

On a residential street, just 230m from the nearest path that leads down to the sheltered sandy cove of Cales Piques and 70m from the supermarket, this beautifully presented home sits within enclosed grounds.  Well designed and stylishly minimalist, its smart interior has been thoughtfully laid out for relaxed holiday living.  A fashionable colour scheme of neutral tones provides a calm and light ambience; in-built shelves and units make the most of the space and at the same time are pleasingly uncluttered to provide an easy and practical holiday abode. 

Neat and attractive, the open plan living room is complemented by what is sure to become the focal point of the home:  a smartly furnished outdoor dining area where stylish garden furniture occupies a spacious covered terrace with views across the garden to the pool.  Clearly created with outdoor living in mind, this is a perfect setting for many happy hours of dining al fresco and lounging by the pool.

Whilst the beaches, shops, bars, restaurants and bustling ambience of Cala en Blanes are just a short walk away, the many unspoilt country coves and beaches that line the island’s picturesque shoreline are well worth exploring, the nearest of these being about 20 minutes away by car.  Also not to be missed are the palm-filled squares, elegant buildings and restaurant-lined harbour of historic Ciutadella, just a 10 minute drive from the house.  Alternatively, a 10 minute walk along the 'Cami de Cavalls' coastal path will reveal the Punt d'en Gil, a natural bridge formed in the rock as it reaches the sea and a perfect spot from which to watch the sun as it sets over the Mediterranean.

Please note:  Air conditioning useage is on a timer.

Great Things to Do Near Sa Ferradura

Spectacular Sunsets

A 10 minute walk along the Cami de Cavalls bridal path takes you to the Punt d'en Gil, a natural bridge formed in the rock as it reaches into the sea. The area is beautiful at any time of the day, but the views of the sunsets from here are amazing.

Go to the races!

Trotting races are held on Sunday afternoons from 6pm at the Hippodrome that is a few minutes walk from the house. Friendly and fun, it is a great way for the whole family to spend a couple of hours alongside the locals. Bets are cheap, drink are available and if the children get bored there are trampolines and mini karts to keep them entertained.

Go back in time.

Visit some of Menorca`s archelogical sites. The Naveta des Tudons, just outside of Ciutadella, is possibly the oldest roofed building in Europe. Explore the `taula` and `talayots` and remains of Son Catlar, a prehistoric settlement some 8 km south of Ciutadella on the Son Saura road.

Explore Ciutadella on foot

Forget the time and soak up the atmosphere. Enjoy stunning views of the harbour from the Plaça des Born, take time to visit the Cathedral and get lost wandering around the narrow side streets. Visit again in the evening when you will find craft markets, street theatre and musical events held throughout the summer months.

Visit the market held on Friday and Saturday mornings on the main square in Ciutadella.

A good place for buying gifts, or that extra item of clothing you forgot to bring.

Hire a bike

and cycle into Ciutadella instead of taking the car. There are also clearly marked cycle routes all over the Island and maps are available from the Tourist information offices. The Cami de Cavalls goes from Cales Piques to Cala Morell, passing by the Punta Nati lighthouse, and this is a great off road route for mountain biking.

Pedreres de S'Hostal is worth a visit.....

Taking the south ring road, follow the signs to Líthica and visit the very deep old sandstone quarry. Follow the pathway around its depths and look out for the auditorium where concerts are held from time to time on summer evenings.

Drive to the top of Monte Toro..

Menorca's only mountain.the highest point of the island, and right in the centre. From the summit you can pick out every town on the island and enjoy beautiful views across the countryside. The monastery here is no longer used as such, but the lovely church, tended by nuns, is very special to all Menorcans.

Visit Binissues

The `Cami Dels Alocs` road is in between Ciutadella and Ferreries and leads to Binissues, an English style country manor house. Explore the museums and landscaped gardens before having lunch in the excellent restaurant. The views from the dining room are not to be missed.

Make a splash at the water park

which is just a short walk from Sa Ferradura.

Shop for local hams and cured meats

at El Paladar, Jamoneria & Delicatessen, where there is a huge selection of Menorcan produce as well as items imported from the Mainland.

For BMX enthusiasts

visit the Sport Bike and fitness center in Cala en Blanes. There are well designed circuits to suit all levels and bikes cost just 3 euros an hour to hire. Access to the circuits is free.

Playas de Algaiarens

These two beautiful beaches are completely unspoilt and a wonderful place to enjoy the sun, clear blue sea and sand and all with a backdrop of pine trees. Drive to the second car park and the beach is just a few minutes walk away
