Client Story: The Lake Family

4th February 2019

Our third client story is from the Lake family. They have now travelled with Menorca Private Owners for four years in a row and have chosen to book VN36 again for 2019. We got in touch to hear all about their most recent trip and to find out why Menorca is perfect for their family.

The Lake family stayed in VN36, a lovely property in the quiet village of Trebaluger. This villa offers the right ingredients for an enjoyable and comfortable family holiday.

1. What did you like about VN36? 

"The villa was absolutely stunning; I couldn’t fault it at all! Evangeline (my daughter) and I loved the snug reading room, perfect for getting out of the midday sun and enjoying Roald Dahl classics! Not to mention the wonderful pool which had hours of use."

2. What’s your favourite thing about Menorca?

" A tricky one as I can list a few but one of my favourite things about Menorca is that everything is close. it is small, intimate and extremely beautiful. The fact that we could shop in Mahon in the morning AND be able to go to Fornells for supper is fantastic. I honestly cannot recommend Menorca enough’

3. Which were your favourite beaches and why?

"My favourite beach is Cala Binimel-la on the north coast of the island, it’s the best for snorkelling. We saw the greatest array of fish here and not one jellyfish which was good news! We never made it along to Cala Pregonda, which is just a bit further along the coast, as our 6-year-old would have melted in the heat but it’s on our list to visit when we are on the island in June!"

We also love walking along the beach at Santo Tomas onto the smaller and less crowded beach of Playa Sant’Adeodat which has a lovely small beach restaurant/bar called Es  Bruc. It's nothing fancy but the food is superb and you can enjoy it looking at the stunning views!"

"I think the prettiest beaches for me though are probably Binisafuller and S'algar, they are so quaint!"

4. If you had to pick one, which is your favourite restaurant?

‘My favourite restaurant is definitely the Restaurant Opera in Mahon. We love the lady who owns it, she pays so much attention to our daughter, which is nice. The food is very, very good too! (Although I probably shouldn't be recommending an Italian restaurant on a Spanish island!)

"I would also like to add that the service from MPO is nothing less than exceptional and I cannot recommend them enough. This is why we keep coming back year after year and especially going with you guys means it is completely hassle   free."
