No problems booking, paying or arranging the key collection for villa. On arrival the villa was clean, lots of spare towels and bedding and kitchen was well stocked. The pool and sun area is amazing. The supermarket and restaurants are about 7 minutes walk away and the beach about 10mins. Both are a safe walk, a car is not needed. Highly recommend for families.
This villa is the perfect, spacious base for active holidaymakers, with the most amazing pool and garden. It's in a fabulous location in Cala Galdana, far enough from the bars and big hotels to be quiet, but not too far that you'd get lost coming home after a few drinks! There are great local walks along the Cami de Cavalls and up the local barranc (valley), and the local bars and shops are really good. Ken was great when we needed a bit of help, a true gent, and extra thanks go to Javi and Miguel at the Restaurante Tipico Meson Murciano who were our on-the-ground help for villa information (and for excellent food and beer, too!). Cala Galdana is the perfect base to explore the island, from the windswept north coast at Punta Nati, to the glorious white sand beaches of Mitjana, Macarella and Macaraletta, which along with the bay at Cala Galdana, are walkable from the villa (in decent walking shoes!). As a horse rider, this villa was also perfectly situated for the various trail riding centres at Menorca a Cavall (just up the road), Son Angel (North coast) and Menorca Horse Riding (close to the airport at Club Hipic Haras del Mar). My partner is a photographer, and depending on your discipline (nature, wildlife, architectural, astro) there's plenty to offer anyone with a camera and an eye for a good picture! We travelled as a couple, and can see that this villa would be great for families too.
We went on a family holiday here (grandparents, me and my partner and our toddler), the villa was in such a great location, walking distance to the town centre and beach but far enough away that it’s very peaceful. The pool was excellent and cleaned regularly. Tv with absolutely loads of English channels if you like to stay in in the evenings. Lots of space and child friendly.
The villa was located in a quiet area toward the back of Cala Galdana. The pool was ideal and family friendly with steps into the shallow end.(5ft deep end) There is an outdoor eating area on the front patio and a barbecue area to the rear. The interior was basic but comfortable, although due to the high temperatures 33 degrees plus it would have been nice to have air con at night. There are good restaurants and supermarkets close by. The beautiful beach is about 5mins walk downhill and ten minutes back, when we were there the beach was very crowded. (August) The owner Ken was excellent and answered all questions promptly.
I stayed here as a family of 4 including 2 children age 6 and 4. The inside was a bit dated but it was comfortable and had everything we needed. Lots of space and would suit a large family with 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 upstairs. I did find there were a lot of bugs around the villa, they just kept appearing overnight and we'd sweep them up each day. It didn't bother us though.
The outside is what makes the villa. Lots of space, amazing pool which is great for both adults and children, and a bbq with plenty of outside seating.
We hired a car for the two weeks we were here, but the centre of cala galdana is a short walk away, either down steps or down a hill.
Lovely villa. Would return.
