Villa Location
Villa Gecko has wonderful views from its position, perched on the hillside above the sought-after resort of Santo Tomas. It only takes a few minutes to drive, or 20 minutes to walk, down the hill into the resort which has a good selection of shops and restaurants, and a beautiful, long sandy beach. The seafront promenade is a particular highlight, perfect for leisurely walks watching the sun set at night. There are also several family activities within the resort, as well as within a short drive.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There are 2 small commercial centres, numerous souvenir shops and a choice of good supermarkets in Santo Tomas.


Bars and restaurants

The main street of Santo Tomas runs alongside the beach, where you'll find various good restaurants offering great food and a warm welcome. Pathways lead from the street between the restaurants to the promenade overlooking the beachfront, which is dotted with places to eat with wonderful views of the open sea. The restaurants have a particularly picturesque view of the sunset in the evening.


Beaches

Santo Tomas has a long golden beach with shallow water making it a popular choice with families. The beach runs parallel to the main street so there are plenty of places to stop for lunch, as well as a few small shops where you can pick up inflatables and beach games.


Family fun

Mini golf, tennis facilities and a bar and restaurant with evening entertainment are available at the Las Dunas Complex, along the main street. Or you can book a pony ride! For anyone who does decide to hire a car, the zoo in Alaior or any of the islands 3 waterparks will make a great family day out!


Places of interest

The small village of Es Migjorn Gran is 5 minutes away, where you'll find a few local shops, art exhibitions and a couple of good restaurants. Or, a little further away is the larger village of Es Mercadal which lies at the foot of Monte Toro, the islands highest point. Sample the typical macaroons made in the village or drive to the summit of the mountain which has spectacular scenery over the whole island! There is also a good souvenir shop and restaurant where you can sit and enjoy a meal as you admire the view.


Golf

The island's only golf course is 35 minutes' drive away in Son Parc.


Other activities

Menorca's capital, Mahon, and ancient capital, Ciutadella, are both worth seeing and can be reached by car within 35 minutes. Each has a fantastic harbour area, a lively market and no end of shops and places to eat and drink.

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.

Activities and things to do
Activity
Pony/donkey trekking
All the riding schools have facilities for children and the equestrian shows attract locals and visitors alike from all over the island.

A particularly popular horse riding centre is Menorca Horse Riding in Mahon where children can have riding lessons or go trekking through woods or along the beaches. The centre caters for all ages, from beginners to experts.

Activity
Tennis
There are tennis courts in almost every resort, all of which hire out equipment. Try the facilities at Santo Tomas, Calan Porter, Calan Forcat, Arenal Den Castell, Calan Bosch or S'algar.
Activity
Watersports
Menorca is definitely the place to be for anyone wanting to experience watersports on their villa holiday! Professional centres with modern teaching techniques and equipment to hire make it all so easy, even for beginners. Menorca's prevalent winds and summers breezes provide perfect conditions for windsurfing or sailing and diving is also very popular with a great deal of sea life and underwaters caves to be explored!|Some of the main beach resorts have windsurf boards and small sailing dinghys but Fornells, on the North coast of the island, in particular, is home to some of the best windsurfing and sailing facilities in Europe.
Activity
Lloc de Menorca Zoo
Lloc de Menorca Zoo, located on the main road from Mahon to Alaior, is sure to be a hit with the kids! The zoo has a range of creatures from farm animals to more exotic zoo animals and children will also be able to pet some of the farm animals.

The zoo also has a small splash pool, 2 museums, a picnic area, snack bar and a gift shop.
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.

Carol Alexander, 24-Jun-2011

El Gecko Villa was fantastic. Beautiful surroundings and a wonderful Villa. Easily fitted 7 of us with plenty of room. Location was great, close enough to get to amenities but far enough away to have a quiet and peaceful holiday. The pool was brilliant ! The table tennis and pool table were used daily and a great addition to the Villa. Would highly recommend Villa Plus and El Gecko villa in particular to anyone.
