A spacious lawn provides plenty of space for a picnic or for children to play and the private swimming pool has a fenced shallower end, ideal for smaller children. The garden is fully enclosed and bordered by hedging and exotic palms, with the open sea beyond - enjoy watching the spectacular sunset over the water. The depth for the childrens pool is 0.7m - 0.9m. There is a removable pool fence available on request at an extra charge of £60.00. This covers the cost of installing and removing the fence.

Living space

The open plan lounge and dining room is spacious with ample seating and a table and chairs. There is an adjacent, circular den area on the right of the lounge, at the base of the turret.

Villa location

This marvellous villa enjoys a great position on the West coast of the island, on a residential street right on the sea front. The sandy bay of Calan Forcat and lively resort centre are both within a short walk, with a choice of other sandy bays and larger beaches also within easy reach on foot or by car. Villa Mercedes is only 2 miles West of the ancient, old capital town of Ciutadella which is definitely worth a visit during your stay!

Location features

Enjoying uninterrupted panoramic views out to sea, Villa Mercedes is in an excellent position right on the sea front, only a 10 minute walk from the picturesque bay and Strip of Calan Forcat/Calan Blanes. These 2 areas have merged in recent years to form one of the largest resorts on the island, so there is plenty of choice of shops and places to eat, as well as a childrens play area and waterpark. Ciutadella is also close by and can be accessed either by car, taxi or bus and is well worth a visit!

Beaches

The closest bay is Calan Forcat, within a very short walk of Villa Mercedes. The bay has rocky platforms, ideal for sunbathing, with a quaint wooden bridge joining 2 sides of the forked bay, where you can stand and view the rock pools below. The more established, sandy bays of Cala Picas and Calan Blanes are also easily reached on foot.

Shops and restaurants

Calan Forcat/Calan Blanes has a great choice of cafes and restaurants as well as a number of shops where you can pick up souvenirs, or buy food for a BBQ! There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets and the main street is only 10 minutes from the villa on foot.
Ciutadella is only 2 miles from here and is well worth a visit during your stay. The town has a huge choice of chic shops and restaurants to explore, as well as a number of waterside eateries overlooking the harbour - the perfect spot for an evening meal watching the sun set over the boats…

Other activities

Located at one end of the main street is one of the islands 2 waterparks, Aqua Centre. On the opposite side of the road is a smaller childrens play park with games tables, trampolines and inflatable animals.
Villa Mercedes is ideal for anyone not wanting to hire a car, with more of the area to be explored by bicycles which are available to hire, including larger bikes for 6 people, or by the road train which circles the resort.
Although Calan Forcat is on the Western tip of the island, for anyone who does hire a car, anywhere in Menorca can be reached in no more than an hour. Visit the Zoo in Alaior, or enjoy the drive up to Monte Toro, the islands highest point. The drive itself has some spectacular scenery, with a gift shop and restaurant at the top where you can sit and enjoy a bite to eat with stunning panoramic views over the whole island - on a clear day, Majorca can even be seen across the sea!

Activity

Bouncy Castles

Some of the resorts on the island have bouncy castles and trampolines which are very popular with younger children.

Activity

Tennis

Or try the go-kart track at Aquarock Waterpark - www.aquarock-menorca.com/UK/indexUK.html

Activity

Monte Toro

El Toro, at 360 metres above sea level, is the highest peak on Menorca.  In the centre of the island it towers above the small town of Es Mercadal.  Take the time to drive up the steep 3.2km climb to the summit and see the whole of the island spread out beneath you.  There are sea views on all four sides and, on a clear day, the view stretches to the north coast of Mallorca. 
The mountain is crowned by a convent which has become an important centre of pilgrimage and the neat vegetable and herb gardens beneath the terraces are still tended to by the community of nuns who live there.  Visit the tiny chapel or have lunch in the rustic café and browse around the shop, packed with souvenirs and local produce.
Activity

Golf Son Parc

There is only one golf course on the island, set amongst the pine trees in Son Parc, on the North coast.  It has recently been extended from 9 holes to 18 and is open 365 days per year.
There is an 18 bay floodlit driving range with the latest technology - Swingcam. 
Junior golfers are welcome if accompanied by an adult and the golf shop stocks equipment for purchase or hire for children of 5 years upwards. 
The dress code is lenient - shorts, t-shirts and trainers are acceptable but NOT sleeveless vests, swimwear, flipflops etc.

If golf plays an important part of your holiday then it is wise to book in advance either by:

Tel (0034) 971 188875 or 971 359059 or
