Overview

About the property

Villa In Trebaluger, Near Es Castell, Menorca - Perfect for beaches close by, the cycle paths, walking, painting & bird watching and chilling out!

Our traditional villa in Trebaluger is located half way between picturesque San Lluis and Es Castell down meandering lanes but close to the Trebaluger supermarket . The villa is fully air conditioned throughout – a must for the Menorcan summer and at no extra cost. To the front of the house is a delightful, very spacious garden that provides full on morning sunshine and then welcome shade from the mid-summer sun. At the rear is a good-sized swimming pool, (10m x 4m), and large sunbathing terraces bathed in sunshine from morning until dusk! To the side a fantastic outside kitchen area is complete with two sinks, BBQ, bread and pizza oven and paella ring plus a food and drink preparation area and there are four outside eating areas to choose from (as well as table tennis if you’re feeling energetic). This boyera-style house is perfect for the family and in a very sunny but private position close to cycle paths and a walk to the charming cove of Cala Rafalet. A walker's and nature lover's paradise but close enough to Binibeca beach (take a picnic cool box - all provided) or eat at the beach bar close to the sea.

From pre holiday planning through to being met at the airport, our guests are VIPs. With our chosen car hire company - Keels and Wheels - you have a complimentary villa escort with your luggage, pre holiday shopping list, personalised house books posted to you in the UK and a house teeming with special attention to detail, we try to make your holiday as perfect as we can make it for you. 5 star accommodation and Gold for customer service is our aim.

We can also assist with your car hire by providing the weekly rental costs for you from Keels and wheels and making the provisional booking. You then liaise with them directly to finalise the booking.

As I write this in the garden of villa Trebaluger, there is a glorious sun setting to the west and casting streaks of red light amidst aquamarine skies full of warmth - and it is only January. The gardens and peace are blissful!! A perfect pace to holiday and chill out!

About Hugh and Sarah

awaiting owner profile.

Hugh and Sarah purchased this villa in 1998

Why Hugh and Sarah chose Es Castell

Having discovered Menorca some 15 years ago, well someone else discovered it first well before that but you know what we mean, we decided that we needed a base to visit that offered us a standard of accommodation we had found lacking on our first stay.

Over the years we have stocked the house to the gunnels with all anyone would need to have a luxury holiday. It seems to be working and our original plan for a base for us has backfired in that we may get a week at the end of September if we are lucky.

We also have another house under ref B2280.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sarah and Hugh

we just wanted to let you know that we had such a lovely time in your villa, I can honestly say we have never stayed in a villa where the owners have thought of (and provided) everything! It was so nice to have Di deliver the groceries on our first day, especially as we had been up since 3am! We were able to relax right from the outset which was just what we needed. It was also lovely to meet John who came to do the garden and he gave us some great local info. We had to contact Nicky and Izmail as the water shut off and we weren't sure what had caused it, they were able to resolve the problem over the phone and bingo! we had water again (the pump had shut down so we needed to re-set it). What a great team you have around you, they were all friendly and informative. Everything with the car hire went very smoothly too.

I just want to reiterate how thoughtful you have been with things like....

a cool box for when we went shopping or to the beach,

the pool towels (huge help as we were travelling with hand luggage only)

an umbrella if it rained (it didn't but I noticed it was there!)

the washing up cloths, fairy liquid, dishwasher tabs, tea towels, bin liners, laundry detergent, matches etc etc

masses of coat-hangers (always a pain when you only have 2 to hang everything on)

the lovely woven bags (especially the pink one with the poodle and chain) I Used it every night as I hadn't taken a handbag

oh, I could go on and on, we really appreciated the 'home from home' feel, it wasn't like a rental villa at all.



We really enjoyed our holiday, the weather was fab and we made full use of the pool (we left some new lilos, snorkel and masks x 2. balls, etc) we explored the beaches and ate out every night, bliss!



thank you so very, very much.

We hope you have a busy summer season and can enjoy some time out there yourselves.



with kind regards

Hazel, Grant and Owen of Benenden, Kent and Owen's friend Freddie from Hawkhurst!

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Ours is not a ‘book the villa’ and then sort yourselves out experience. We are happy to arrange the hire car for you, we only work with proven operators, we ensure all the paperwork is done pre departure, so all you have to do is jump in the car and head to your holiday home. Whilst we have included the essentials, loo paper, soaps, kitchen toweling, tea, coffee, oils, sugar and all the basic condiments and cleaning materials, we also offer a get you started shopping service (you pay for your pre ordered goods on arrival). High chair and cot with bedding are available for a small additional charge. We like to make sure that you have everything that you want to ensure a happy time with us. From Trebaluger there are some scenic cycle rides, all nicely signposted, and whilst we do not have a supply of bicycles we can arrange for them to be hired in for you. Outside: Beautiful gardens, peaceful and secluded setting away from the crowds but still close to the beaches, bistros and bars in just 5 minutes by car. Large pool, (10m x 4m), and deck area, lots of outdoor furniture and sun beds. To compliment the house kitchen we have an extensive BBQ area, with work surfaces, twin sinks, wood oven, a gas paella ring, as well as the large BBQ itself. Top deck is where sundowners are best, watching the glorious evening Menorcian skies at night before supper al fresco. Utility Room: Now integrated into the state of the art kitchen. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Beach/pool towels are provided. For 2 week-stay guests, a laundry change and maid service is included. Attention to detail is our priority - maximum comfort with quality linen and towels in abundance for 5 star comfort. Every bed has a teddy bear too! Other: More for the kids – a TV room with flat screen Satellite, which contains a vast library of videos and DVDs, plus board games and books for all the family. Four beautiful seating and dining areas for all the family to enjoy plus the pool side terraces!

A great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place in a quiet residential area. House and facilities were first class - clean, well maintained and just as described.

The owners Hugh & Sarah certainly go the extra mile to make the holiday special from arranging car hire and 'greet and meet' at the airport, escort to the property and providing lunch on our first day, as well as providing pool and beach towels and plenty of recommendations on what to see and where to go.

Highly recommended!

Peaceful very well equipped villa. Great location lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from our holiday at villa Trebaluger. From the first enquiry right through to our arrival the service from Sarah was second to none. Great communication and she kept us up to date on everything we needed to know to make the holiday as easy as possible even down to organising shopping to be delivered on our arrival. The villa itself is very well equipped, comfortable and we particularly loved all the different outside seating areas. Always somewhere to relax in either the sun or shade. Breakfast under the trees was a particular favourite spot of ours. The swimming pool and table tennis were great fun and all in very good, well looked after condition. We loved the outdoor kitchen and BBQ which proved to be a good viewing spot for the competitive table tennis matches!

The location was perfect of us as it was very peaceful and about 10 minutes drive from multiple coves and beaches and lots of restaurants. Es castelle very pretty. I would say a car is a good idea unless you like cycling. Sarah has an information booklet in the villa which was very helpful. The local Italian is worth a visit for the atmosphere.

All in all a lovely holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful two week holiday in this fabulous villa. From start to finish the service provided by Hugh and Sarah has been outstanding, they certainly do go all out to ensure you have a holiday to remember. The house itself is very well equipped with a lovely pool which was enjoyed by our children and ourselves, There are some lovely beaches within twenty minutes by car and fantastic restaurants as well. We have had a holiday to remember and would certainly recommend this property for couples and families alike

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of villa Trebaluger. We now have another fantastic restaurant just two minutes from the house in its own vineyard. You can just go for a drink, or tapas or splash out on the full Monty. I must remember to put this great place into next year's villa and island book!!

Map

Special interest holidays:

Ideal location for bird watching, cycling, painting, walking, diving, all water sports or just for relaxation, eating and drinking.

Coast/Beach:

Whilst Trebaluger doesn’t boast it’s own beach, you’re never very far from the sea. The beautiful port of Es Castell boasts a myriad of restaurants, whilst the beaches of Punta Prima, Alcalfaur, Binibequer and Binissafuller are no more than a 10-minute drive.

Travel:

What do you care? you will be met you at the airport with car/s and try not to laugh at the long queues of people at the airport waiting for their minibus to take them to the industrial estate to get their hire car.

Distances:

Unlike many locations in Menorca that were built specifically for holidays, Trebaluger is an all-year round functioning village. The village integrates old + rustic Spanish homes with modern villas perfectly. A walk along its winding lanes will reveal beautifully kept gardens. The modern local supermarket is served by friendly staff, most of whom speak fluent English and it is well stocked with not only excellent Spanish foods, but English ‘goodies’ as well. Best of all, it’s a stress free zone.

Further Details:

A few minutes drive takes you to San Lluis that was founded by the French in the mid-18th Century. It’s a picturesque traditional Menorcan town, with a host of excellent shops, restaurants and bars. And, should you feel the need for a ‘big supermarket buzz’, Syp is just down the road. Es Castell, once an English stronghold is strategically located at the mouth of Mahon harbour. It was heavily fortified in the 17th & 18th Centuries and is steeped in history. The town has a distinct urban feel with its many shops, bars and restaurants, whilst the town square thrives with activity late into the nights.
