Green fingers and a love of gardening have clearly been instrumental in the creation of the lush and beautifully landscaped grounds that encircle this smart coastal residence and which make Sa Tanca such an eye-catching addition to our selection of properties in Menorca.

Enviably positioned amidst the gently undulating countryside of wild olives and shrubs that borders the seaside neighbourhood of Cala Morell, this immaculately presented residence offers space, quality and a pleasingly rural outlook. At the same time, it is just 1.6km from the pretty sheltered bay (or even closer for those who wish to take the short cut on foot through the countryside), 700m from the local snack bar, only a short distance further from a local restaurant and a pleasant 10 minute drive from the stone flagged streets, bustling squares and atmospheric harbour of historic Ciutadella.

Flanked by a wide covered terrace that provides the perfect setting for meals al fresco, the focal point of this charming home is an imaginatively designed open plan living room which exudes style and elegance beneath a high-pitched ceiling of open beams and looks out through wide French doors onto the most idyllic of gardens.

Sweeping graciously across the gently rolling hillside, a wide expanse of impeccably cared for lawn is dotted with shady trees, mature shrubs and pretty stone pathways. Just below, the swimming pool sits within an attractive terrace of crazy paved stone whilst in the distance the aquamarine waters of the nearby ocean glisten invitingly beyond the rustic shoreline.

This same pleasing outlook is enjoyed by two of the neatly furnished bedrooms, whilst the third bedroom looks onto a sheltered lawned garden which sits privately to the rear of the house. Boasting carpentry of the highest quality, rustic ceramics, chic furnishings and an indulgently spacious ambience, this is a home that is both traditional and stylishly up-to-date and is sure to delight those looking for a smart holiday home by the sea.

When the small party rate for up to 2 persons is paid, the double bedroom with ensuite shower room will be prepared.  If you would prefer a different bedroom to be prepared for you please advise at the time of booking.

but relax on the terrace and enjoy the peace and quiet, beautiful garden and stunning views.

Get close to nature

There is a pond in the garden with a hide. You won't need to wait for long before you will see all sorts of creatures attracted by the fresh water. Take your camera too as there will be lots of opportunities to photograph dragonflies, all sorts of birds and even tortoises and lizards.

Take the lane to the side of the villa and you will get to this fascinating archeological site. The necropolis is made up of 14 different caves, some with carvings, pillars and intricately decorated doorways.

Go to the beach

Just walk a little further on from the necropolis and you will come to the beach. It`s not a traditional sandy beach but it is beautiful. Don`t forget to take a mask and snorkel.

Algaiarens-La Vall

Explore Ciutadella on foot

Forget the time and soak up the atmosphere. Enjoy stunning views of the harbour from the Plaça des Born and take time to visit the Cathedral.

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.

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.

Take a guided tour around Cathedral in Ciutadella

It really is a beautiful building and steeped in history. Learn about its origins as a Mosque and visit the catacombs. The views from the roof of the harbour and the old quarter of Ciutadella are stunning. Don`t forget your camera!

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.
