This apartment had my whole family spellbound! We were a little nervous about driving abroad but found the roads really quiet and well signposted. Stuart's instructions were to the tee and we easily found the apartment. It is right next to some sightseeing benches and we were the lucky ones enough to have the view all the time! The apartment is the most well equipped one we have ever stayed in and it was a real bonus having the two bathrooms especially with my two teenagers who loved having the wiifi. The beach Tirant is easily within walking distance as well as bars, restaurants and local supermarkets. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Okapi's and would have a drink watching the sunset at Isabella's just in front of the apartment on the cliffs edge, well worth it!! We traveled to most places and the sea is just so clear in Menorca. We loved Son Bou as there is plenty of space along the beach and we used the San Jaime pool a couple of times only 3 euro's a sunbed with shade under the trees and lunch and drinks available.On our last night we visited Arenal d'en Castel and had a lovely meal at La Paella overlooking the sandy bay. We loved to come back to this accommodation after spending time at more commercial resorts really made you appreciate the peace and quiet. We always watched out for the schnauzer having her walk from our balcony and it reminded us of our schnauzer back home. The bose music system was great and got us in holiday mode, thanks Charlotte and Stuart for a truly special holiday! xxx
This was our second stay in this apartment and our 5th visit to Fornells. We love walking and Menorca is just the place for us with the Cami de Cavells.
Being high up on a hill, the views are staggering and there are enough people walking past on the road below to make life interesting - including two cats who go for a walk with ther friend the dog and the couple who own them every day - no leads!
The Okapi restaurant/bar continues to excell with its food and relaxed atmosphere. For those with children staying elsewhere in Playa de Fornells it is the perfect escape from the hotel/apartment dining room.
If you like the traditional avarca sandal - look to further than the shops on the Fornells front - managed only to buy three pairs this year and there are bargains to be had.
The whole experience of this appartment and the island is heaven.
Wonderful, very comfortable well equipped villa with glorious views and marvellous restaurants within walking distance as is the beach
I spent a month in this lovely apartment as a base for hiking the island. My hiking buddy and I realised on the day of arrival that the villa and location had far exceeded our expectations. We chose a quiet time to visit just after the tourist season ended. This meant that many local services were closed or closing and the bus service restricted. No problem for us as we loved walking the beautiful rocks to Fornells for our supplies or to eat at the great restaurants there.
All needs in the home were well catered for including wifi with good connection and communication with the owners and their maintenance staff was excellent. I highly recommend this place.

This place f lives up to its excellent reviews. It is well positioned, well furnished, comfortable and has unexpected extras, such as an ironing board, iron and kitchen knives that you can actually cook with. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the sun go down. The local beach is sandy and close, there is a supermarket within walking distance...everything here for a few days total detox from any frantic lifestyle. Thanks and we will be back.
