Location Information: Set in the unspoilt, picturesque hamlet of Torret, surrounded by pretty white farmhouses & open fields yet within walking distance of the lovely historic town of San Lluis & a few minutes from the sandy beaches at Binibeca/Alcaufar, this 200 year old farmhouse is an absolute delight. Tranquil & secluded, it offers a haven for those who want to relax & enjoy everything that Menorca does best! Torret village itself hosts 3 excellent restaurants with many more just a short amble away. A 10 minute drive to the beautiful port at Mahon which offers bars, restaurants & a vibrant atmosphere . The beautiful coastline that makes Menorca justifiably memorable is only a few minutes drive away, or for the more athletic, a half hour stroll. A short distance away is the picturesque inlet of Cala Fonts with the first cafe on the island to get the morning sun! The Fonts, with its natural beauty & choice of waterside alfresco lunch/evening dining, is a must for any visitor.
The house is located in the much sought after village of Torret, close to the town of San Lluis. It is only a short distance from Mahon and takes 10 minutes by car from the airport. Torret is only minutes from some of the island's favourite child friendly beaches e.g. Binibeca and Alcaufar. The village itself has 3 fine restaurants which are all within walking distance. There are also 2 very popular Italian Pizzerias within a 5 minutes drive. San Lluis town is a 5 min walk & has a church, a selection of bars, restaurants, coffee bars, shops & banks. La Rueda, the well known tapas bar, attracts visitors from all over the island & is very child friendly. The nearest supermarket, Sa Botega de S'Uestra, acknowledged to be the best on the Island for its locally grown vegetables & friendly coffee bar, is located at the end of the Torret village.The staff are Menorcan but speak excellent English.
Golf is available near this property.
Nearest golf: Son Parc, 20 Kilometres
The only golf course on the island at present is at Son Parc. This is a short 20 minute drive away. However, 2 more courses are presently at the planning stage. Son Parc offers practice facilities/video recording of your swing, etc., as well as an excellent restaurant/bar at the 19th hole. If you are looking for company, we can always find you a partner to play a round with should you so wish. Clubs, trolleys & buggies are available for hire.
