Warm coloured fabrics, carefully maintained family heirlooms, beamed ceilings and attractive archways lend a homely and inviting feel to this beautifully presented property, which sits amidst mature and spacious grounds in the rural neighbourhood of Ses Mongetes.

You are welcomed, via a covered arched terrace that is ideal for dining al fresco, into an open plan living area. Here, beneath a high pitched ceiling of wooden beams and overlooked by a galleried landing, a plump sofa and matching armchairs occupy a cosy corner. Beyond, a wide arch leads the way to a dining area, where a well equipped kitchen sits conveniently to one side.

Three of the colourful bedrooms are upstairs, whilst the fourth sits under an impressive vaulted ceiling on the ground floor.

Appealing as the interior is, you will no doubt spend most of your time outside, since this ample plot offers a pleasing combination of wide terraces, an abundance of shady trees and a swimming pool that is thoughtfully fenced.

Activities in the pool can be supervised from the covered terrace whilst on the other side of the house, a large open patio is home to an in-built barbecue. In between, a wide area of mature trees provides a welcome retreat from the sun.

With medieval Ciutadella just 5km away, the charming labyrinthine cobbled streets and arcaded squares of this delightful town are within easy reach, whilst a range of pretty coved beaches is a 10 minute drive from the house.

Lloc de Menorca

For a curious mix of Menorca's indigenous species such as the emblematic red cow and other wild and wonderful creatures, pop along to this working farm/zoo in Alaior, Carretera General.

Inaki Sampedro

The unique and irresistible leather goods on sale at Inaki Sampedro could potentially ruin your holiday budget! Try accessories such as purses and mobile phone covers for something a little more gentle on your wallet. Or simply employ the expression: 'solo estoy mirando' (I'm just looking)! Situated at 26 Seminari, Ciutadella.

Stroll around the old town centre,

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

Do the same thing at night,

and enjoy the lively cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Walk down the Paseo de San Nicolas to the far end,

and visit the old defence tower. Next to it see the statue of Admiral David Glasgow Farragut (yes, that was really his name) who was born of ex-patriot Ciudadellenc parents, and became the first Admiral of the Fleet of the United States.

On the new south ringroad, follow signs to Lithica - Pedreres de S'Hostal.

This is the old stone quarry , and is very deep. Follow the pathway around its depths, and look out for the auditorium, where concerts are held from time to time on summer evenings.

Go back in time to the bronze age by exploring various prehistoric sites,

especially Sa Naveta des Tudons, the oldest roofed building in Europe.

Drive out of Ciutadella along the main road towards the little town of Ferreries.

Just before the town centre, on the right, take the road leading to Cala Galdana. After about 1.5 km on the left you come to Es Martorellet, where an equestrian show is performed on two evenings per week. This is a chance to see the famous black Menorcan horses performing as at the Fiestas, and much more. Booking advisable.

Carry on down this road to the resort of Cala Galdana, with its wide sandy beach,

and a selection of cafes for lunch.

Starting opposite the H. Audax at Cala Galdana,

is a walk through the woods and across fields to the unspoilt beaches of Macarella and Macarelleta, where you can enjoy a swim and sunbathe without cars and hotels.

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.

Let the children play in their very own outdoor kitchen,

while mum and dad prepare the BBQ close by.

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.

Instead of doing all your shopping in a supermarket,

go to the food market in a side street near the Cathedral. Especially good for fresh fish.

Visit Ferreries

where you will find a surprising number of sophisticated boutiques and restaurants. This is the place to go if you want to buy the traditional Menorcan sandals, `abarcas`. Visit the main square on Saturday mornings and buy local produce at the lively farmer`s market.

Hire a bike

and explore Ses Mongetes 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. The Cami d`en Kane is a great route to take by bike as this ancient and well preserved track meanders through the picturesque heartland of the Island.

See the coast from a different vantage point

by taking a half day cruise from Cala en Bosc or Ciutadella. It is a good way to see some of the less accessible coves. Alternatively, hire a small motor boat yourself in Cala en Bosc.

Visit Binissues

The `Camino 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.

Explore Mahon on foot

From July to September there are guided tours of the historical centre of Mahon on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 11am and Wednesdays at 7pm. The tours last around 2 hours and tickets are available from the Tourist information offices.

A day's sailing along the coast

Book a day with Pere Vallera on his two masted 50' yacht, sailing to some of the more secluded coves on the Menorcan coast, to snorkel and swim off the boat before having a simple but delicious lunch on board. Pere is a charming host who speaks excellent English and, with only 12 of you on board, it is a lovely relaxing day. (Booked by Tracey).Marriott family July 2010
