This villa is not only a rental holiday home but a home with a personal touch, filled with that touch that is so common to the islands, only this one has a bit of Je Ne Sais Quoi. It’s homely yet cozy and very well thought through. Many of the spaces are open and shared for all to enjoy especially outdoors.
Once outdoors, the view to the sea is luring one to take that easy walk to the beach where there is a base of amenities and facilities for one to enjoy on the beach. If not the easy walk, then cycle down to the beach whilst exploring the majestic land that still holds some of the islands’ history with its Talaiotic structures.
ABOUT SON SAURA, MENORCA, SPAIN
The water of Son Saura is very clean , but the sand is totally affected by the problem of oceanic posidonia or, speaking clearly, algae . On our last visit there were large piles of algae accumulated on the shore, something that discouraged us from getting into the water.
Once you find yourself in Son Saura, from there you can walk to Es Talaier cove in about 10 minutes. To do this you will only have to take the path that leaves to the left of the beach. If you are not traveling with children you can get there easily and it is well worth it.
