This house combines the best of the countryside, with its stunning garden and pool, just a few minutes from the town of Ciutadella, one of the nicest of the Mediterranean. Charming and rustic, it has all the comfort and peace you need for a vacation.
This house is a gem and the pictures speak for themselves.
It is located a stone's throw away from the stunning town center of Ciutadella de Menorca, renowned for its medieval architecture and cobblestone streets.
The house has 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two single beds (matresses are brand new with 100% cotton bedding).
At the other side of the garden there is another room with its own porch, equipped with a double bed (but no bathroom).
The garden is massive : 1400m2, with plenty of trees (olive trees, orange trees, cypresses, jacarandas, laurels) and shrubs, rose-bushes, aromatic plants...
... and a beautiful swimming pool with unique ceramic fixtures that sparkle blue-green reflections on the water (4x8 meters, pool maintenance is taken care of).
Outside the house and opening to both the kitchen and the living-room is a very large terrace, the perfect spot to enjoy the view and the tranquility, under the shade of a pergola covered by a grapevine.
Inside the house the kitchen is equipped with a fridge, a freezer, gas furnace, toaster, Nespresso machine, blender and complete kitchenware.
The living-room is a perfect retreat in the unlikely case of a rain with its sofa. The bathroom has splendid tiles, with shower, wc, sink. Bath & beach towels are provided so you can go and enjoy the swathe of idyllic beaches around the island.
Small huts in the garden include a washing-machine and a washing sink, as well as a second fridge with freezer unit.
Hot and cold water are available in the house, coming from the well. It is not drinkable but apt for kitchen use.
The garden is made of terraces, with plenty of small stairs, which makes the house not suitable for disabled individuals and young children. In addition, the swimming pool is not fenced.
The house has three bikes available (downtown Ciutadella is 5 minutes away by bike or car, 10 minutes walking), and many additional equipments: stereo CD player, hammocks, garden bed, garden furnishings -chairs, tables, poolside long chairs-, etc.
The parking fits two cars and is easily accessible from a pathway leading to Ciutadella and (website hidden) and internet are not the kind of things you would want in such a quiet retreat, where the sound of birds and crickets are better enjoyed undisturbed.
But nearby Ciutadella has all of the wired connectivity you would need, as well as plenty of restaurants, shops and a great night-life.
Minorca offers some of the best beaches in the entire mediterranean. From Ciutadella, you are close to the south coast beaches renowned for their clear turquoise water and fine white sands (Cala Turqueta, Cala Macarella, Son Saura) but also from some of the northern coast most preserved beaches like Algaiarens or Cala Pilar.
Guests can access the whole house and garden.
Key are made available, then the house is yours. I am reachable by phone and email for any questions related to your stay.
The house is in the countryside a few minutes from Ciutadella (which can be seen from the terrace). There are a few other houses around, all far enough to respect the privacy of the garden. The area is also very quiet.
Ciutadella is the gem city of the island, its historic centre is renown across Spain and the mediterranean. Bursting with restaurants, small shops and a great nigh-life down in the port, it still offers a relaxing quietness other places can no longer pretend to have.

The house is a mere 5 minutes by car or bike from downtown Ciutadella. You can also walk, which takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
There are 3 bikes available in the house for use by guests. In Ciutadella you can find bus stations to take you around the island, and taxi stops.
Renting a car is the most convenient way to explore Minorca.
There is a file full of information in the house. It has all the touristic and not so touristic tips on the island, and personal recommendations on restaurants, activities, and sightings.
Everything was as we expected: a beautyful garden, a quiet place, close to Ciuatadella. The house was easy to find, Anne has everything well organized in the house. It was a nice place to stay for us (couple) and our two Children (21 yrs. and 27 yrs.).
The Villa is very homely and set beautiful gardens, perfect for relaxing.
Anne was the perfect host and was very helpful.
The location is quiet, but only a short distance away from the town.
We enjoyed our stay very much, and would stay again.

Très belle découverte de Minorque dans un cadre idyllique. Terrasse, jardin et piscine très agréables pour s'y prélasser la journée comme le soir. Maison très bien équipée et tout confort. Hôte très disponible et échanges faciles.
RAS, nous avons passé de superbes vacances chez vous. Soleil, mer et douceur de vivre, merci pour tout Anne et à bientôt .
Nous sommes séduits… par la maison, par l’esprit qui y règne…et par le jardin que nous avons qualifié « d’eden » ! Nous estimons que c’est une vraie chance de pouvoir louer un lieu pareil. Et pour embellir le tableau, s’il en était besoin, Ciutadella est une petite ville très jolie et agréable à vivre.
Il faut se laisser surprendre par le petit paradis minorquin d'Anne. Du charme d'antan, de la poésie végétale et pleins d'endroits où se la couler douce ! Un havre de calme construit avec goût en respect avec la nature et l'art de vivre méditérranéen. Le voyageur y est traité en hôte responsable et libre. Une adresse qui a du sens.
Annes house is beautiful. It is a small timeless traditional house built into the walls of a mature garden full of fruit trees, roses, cacti, herbs and butterflies. Hammocks, day beds, loungers etc make every corner of the garden somewhere different explore. We rarely heard a car or neighbours, just birds. And its a suntrap well sheltered from the winds. The pool is simple, unheated but warm. Lots of rustic steps. Lovely eating patio.
Inside, the furnishings are simple, everything was spotlessly clean, well organised and missing nothing we needed.
Annes communication with us was lovely and prompt giving us all the info we needed.
Highly recommended, we would all revisit her Mediterranean house.
La casa di Anne è molto accogliente in una zona tranquilla e silenziosa.
Gli unici rumori sono il cinguettio degli uccellini: è una oasi di pace dove si può godere la natura in tutte le sue forme. La casa è ben tenuta e ha un certo fascino di vissuto. E' comoda sia per la vicinanza a Ciutadella che a molte spiagge. E' dotata di tutto quello che può servire per rendere gradevole la vacanza. Siamo stati bene e la consigliamo a chi vuole vivere l'isola di Minorca in modo informale.
What a beautiful, magical house and garden. We had a fantastic stay that was relaxing beyond our expectations. Its perfect location allowed us to quickly cycle into Ciutadella whenever we wanted to visit the fish market, eat paella or buy supplies. Easy to navigate to beaches and walks. One could not imagine a better place to get away from the stresses of regular life. Tranquil, spacious and sublime.
This is a very special place and the photographs are accurate and reflect its beauty. Anne was a great host and dealt with all correspondence quickly. It is quiet and peaceful and the bed by the swimming pool possibly the most comfortable in the world for a snooze and read. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is all one wants in terms of towels, bedding etc etc. As I said - a very, very special place.
Although it is possible, of course, to walk/bike to the beaches I would strongly recommend hiring a car. Also to go into town where there is free parking down by the harbour. The town is beautiful with lots of nice restaurants (there are very good tips from Anne on these as well as the best beaches, walks etc). There is a patisserie 4 minutes bike ride away but get there before 8.30am or all the croissants will have gone!
Anne's place is highly recommended!
J'ai passé une semaine magique dans cette maison. Le jardin, la terrasse, la piscine... sont formidables. La maison est décorée avec goût et est très confortable..
