Villa Location
Villa Parque is in a fantastic position, only 10 minutes' walk from the beach and centre of the resort. The resort is split into smaller areas, the residential part being Calan Blanes, whilst the central Strip, lined with shops, restaurants and the waterpark, is known as Calan Forcat. A leisurely stroll in the opposite direction will bring you to Calan Blanes' sandy beach. Plus, the former capital, Ciutadella, and various other historical and family attractions are all within a short drive, too.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

A short walk from Villa Parque will bring you to the archway at the top of the Strip, officially marking the entrance into Calan Forcat. There are several gift and beachwear shops to browse, as well as a handful of mini markets and supermarkets for daily essentials.

Serious shoppers should head into the former historic capital, Ciutadella, which can be easily reached by taxi or local bus if you prefer not to drive. The town has a much larger choice of boutiques, as well as a vibrant weekly market.


Bars and restaurants

Calan Forcat has a diverse range of restaurants, serving everything from traditional Spanish, paella, tapas plates and seafood to Italian and Tex Mex dishes. Many of the restaurants also have small play areas to keep children entertained. There are a couple of small cafes where you can purchase drinks and ice cream, too, to keep you cool as you wander around the resort.

Beaches

It's a leisurely 10 minute stroll to Calan Blanes Beach, the largest beach in the local area. Sunbeds and parasols can be hired in summer to make your day at the seaside more comfortable, plus there's a small children's play area at the back of the sand, as well as a couple of small cafes selling drinks and snacks.

At the end of Calan Forcat's Strip is a short, rough track leading to a small, rugged sandy cove, Cala Picas. Or you can head to the far side of the resort, where you'll find Calan Forcat's rocky cove overlooking the sea. There's a small sandy inlet with steps and a pathway leading to various rocky platforms, as well as a quaint little wooden bridge joining 2 sides of the cove. Although not your average beach, the inlets are still perfect for sunbathing and swimming. Neither of these beaches have any amenities so remember to pack a picnic!


Family fun

This resort is a great choice for families with younger children, and getting around without a car is easy. In addition to the shops and restaurants in the centre, there's also the popular Park Aire which has trampolines, inflatables, go-karts and games. Directly across the street is Aqua Center Waterpark, with various water-based rides and a restaurant - ideal for cooling off on hot summer days.

Places of interest

The convenient location of Villa Parque means you won't need to hire a car, but there are a couple of rental companies within the resort if you choose to hire one for a few days and explore the island, as well as taxis and local buses. Nearby Ciutadella is well worth seeing. The town was once the island's capital, and is filled with beautiful historic buildings, various boutiques and places to eat. The restaurants around the harbour, a short walk from the centre, are particularly worth visiting for their wonderful sunset views in the evening.

On the far side of Ciutadella is the Lithica sandstone labyrinth and gardens. The huge maze, flora and fauna provide plenty of fantastic photo opportunities, and remain open into the evening, when the temperatures are cooler, as it can get very hot during the day.

For anyone who does decide to hire a car, Menorca's highest point, Monte Toro, is a great adventure, with spectacular panoramic scenery over the island from its peak. There's a lovely gift shop and cafe here too.


Golf

Menorca only has 1 golf course, situated 45 minutes' drive away in the resort of Son Parc. The course has a full 18 holes, as well as a driving range, tennis courts and an impressive restaurant with a dining terrace overlooking the fairway.

Other activities

Water sports are readily available at most of the major beaches during the summer. The island also has some wonderful scenery to enjoy. The Cami de Cavalls bridle path runs the full length of the coast, popular with walkers and horse riders, and offers some stunning views - don't forget your camera!

Remember...

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

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.

Our first time with Villa Plus and what a holiday! Amazing from start to finish. The flights and hire car service ran smoothly. Villa Parque was home from home, clean and tidy and well equipped The aircon was a god send as the weather was gorgeous. The pool and outdoor facilites were great, our 10 and 14 year old loved it. We Played pool and cards around the table most evenings. Keep an eye out for the lizards and birds in the garden! The Menorcan people are lovely and would recommend the local restaurant, Es Pitus, lovely food and friendly service. A visit to Cuitadella, the old city is a must, only a couple of miles away, taking the bus couldn't be easier! Thank you Villa Plus, would highly recommend you!

Wonderful holiday, villa was supurb as was the help we had from Robert prior to the holiday and Jo when we were there (only a very small problem with the washing machine instructions going astray). Jo was with us within 15 mins and was very helpful and quite charming. The only suggestion we may have is the lack of tourist information in the villa. Jo told us where to find the tourist information place which was a car drive away. It would be good to have some pamphlets to look through to whet ones appetite for the few days ahead. Apart from that the villa was the best appointed we have stayed in (and there have been a fair few both home and abroad) so much so that we will book a Villa Plus holiday again. Thanks.

We all had a fabulous holiday. The villa was perfect for all the family. It was good to have off road parking and to be in the right location to get to places either on foot or by car. We will definitly think about using Villa Plus sometime in the future.
