A charming and uniquely Menorcan design is displayed throughout the spacious and well presented rooms of this delightful coastal home, which sits within ample grounds on the edge of the seaside neighbourhood of Cala Morell, just a few hundred metres from the steps that lead down to the pretty coved bay itself.

Long before the arrival of the pretty white painted homes that are now dotted across the coastal hillside, the inhabitants of this picturesque north western corner of the island occupied a cluster of pre-historic caves. These still exist today, tucked away into the natural landscape of wild grasses and indigenous shrubs that stretches back from the sea, and it is just above here that Torroelleta is situated.

Enjoying enticing views across gently sloping countryside and over the tops of whitewashed homes towards the shimmering sea, the property’s pretty gardens and terraces are enviably positioned. Lawns dotted with shrubs and shady palm trees stretch out beyond a thoughtfully fenced pool, a selection of covered and open terraces provide a choice of al fresco dining venues and all benefit from this picturesque outlook.

Entered via a covered terrace with graceful archways and an eye-catching ceiling of honey coloured stone, the interior is equally appealing. Its airy rooms exhibit polished wood floors, high pitched ceilings, reclaimed beams and feature stone walls, and many of its windows look out to sea.

A walk down to the beach may include a wander through the fascinating caves or a visit to the restaurant and snack bar that lie within the residential area itself. Alternatively, a drive of some 12 minutes to the east will reveal the beautiful countryside of La Vall, where twin sandy beaches are set into the horseshoe bay of Algaiarens.

Air conditioning useage is on a timer and payable locally.

Great Things to Do Near Torroelleta

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.

Go to the beach

It`s just a short walk from the villa and although it`s not a tradtional sandy beach, it is beautiful. Don`t forget to take a mask and snorkel.

Algaiarens-La Vall

Is just a short drive from Toroelleta. 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.

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.

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.

The Castell de Sant Nicolau

is situated at the entrance to the old port (Port Antic). The castle is a defense tower built in the eighteenth century and was used by soldiers, and also to store supplies and armaments.

Local Produce

Instead of using the supermarket, buy local produce from the Rural Market which is held in the Plaza del Mercat, every Saturday from 7:00 am until 1:00 pm.

Go hunting for tortoises..

in the garden. There are lots to be found, but you must look carefully as they are well hidden!

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.

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 farmers' market.

Do nothing

but relax around the villa, enjoy the stunning views out to see and find a shady spot in the garden to catch a quiet couple of hours and get lost in a good book.

Go shopping for leather goods

in the factory outlet of Calzados Jaime Mascaró. Menorca has some fantastic leather goods so pick up a bargain with some great quality footwear or a handbag or two. Situated on the industrial estate just outside of Ferreries.

Go horse riding

and see the Menorcan countryside from a different angle. The Son Angel stables are just a short drive from the villa and they offer routes to suit everyone, even if you are a complete beginner.

Sample the Xoriguer gin and liqueurs

at the 18th century distillery on the port of Mahon. Although it is not possible to tour the factory, it is possible to see enormous copper stills, bubbling to produce the spirit. The gin was first distilled in Mahon to cater for the tastes of the thousands of soldiers and sailors who were stationed in Menorca when it was under British control in the 18th Century

Monte Toro

is the highest point on the Island and home to a charming Sanctuary as well as an excellent cafe. The panoramic views are breathtaking and on a clear day it is possible to see as far a Mallorca.

Port de Maó

Take a trip around the harbour on the glass bottomed boat and discover the harbour`s rich history. Also take time to explore the harbour on foot. No visit to Menorca is complete until you have spent a lazy afternoon or balmy evening on the waterfront, admiring million pound yachts with good food and a local drink or two.

Lloc de Menorca

The Menorca Zoo situated on the Alaior to Mahon road, at L`Argentina, has a good variety of animals including goats, cows, horses, deer, tortoises, emus, snakes, parrots, monkeys, giant tortoises, lemurs and a wide variety of birds. There is also a play area, picnic tables and shop.

Explore Es Grau

a small fishing village just north of Mahon. The sheltered beach and shallow waters make this an ideal beach for relaxing with children. Nature trails lead from the back of the beach around the fresh water lake which is home to many species of birds.
