Whether you are travelling as a family, as a couple, or with a group of friends, Menorca is the perfect island for relaxing, exploring and trying out the local cuisine. You may be considering the more popular islands of Ibiza or Majorca, but did you know that Menorca has more beaches than the two of these combined? Not to mention the fact that Menorca is rich in history and culture and has stoically resisted mass tourist developments, meaning that you can enjoy it in all its natural and traditional glory; from the beautiful beaches of Arenal d’en Castel to the limestone cliffs of Cala en Porter to the fun-packed resort of Cala Blanes.
Are you convinced yet? Of course you are! Now, you need to decide what type of accommodation to book for your Menorcan holiday. A hotel? An apartment? Or how about your own private villa, complete with your own private swimming pool? There are so many reasons why choosing a villa for your holiday in Menorca is the right choice, from saving money to allowing more time for family bonding.

A Villa Can Be More Cost-Effective
If there are four or more of you travelling, then a villa is almost always cheaper than booking into a hotel of a similar standard. If you are a small family or a couple, why not reach out to extended family and friends to see if you can book a luxury villa together? Not only will you have more help with the kids, but a large group on holiday together allows for a lot more laughter and fun!
You can also save on food and drink when staying in one of the many luxury Villas in Menorca that are on offer as you will be self-catering. Eating breakfast in, taking a packed lunch on your day trips, and then having the option to treat yourself to dinner out if you fancy it is a great way to cut back on food expenditure on your holiday.
A Villa Allows You to Create Your Own Holiday
Staying in a villa offers a lot more flexibility compared to staying in a hotel. If you want to have a late breakfast, you can. If you want to have a midnight swim, you can. If your children have had too much sun and need to spend a few days inside, they can – without you having to sit in a hotel room with them. You can do as much or as little as you want, each and every day.
You Can Rent A Villa in Locations Across the Whole of Menorca
Whether you want to be in the hustle and bustle of the lively Cala en Bosch, or you would prefer the more tranquil village setting of Binibeca, there are villas to be found in locations that will suit everyone’s taste. You can even combine both the above holiday types and rent a villa in a quieter area such as Son Bou but have the option to travel to the country’s capital, Mahon, which is just 20km away, for a bit more excitement. A villa holiday in Menorca allows for this type of flexibility, meaning you don’t have to settle for one type of holiday.
A Villa Allows for More Quality Time with Your Loved Ones
Staying at a hotel with an endless list of prearranged activities and set mealtimes can be enjoyable for a day or two, but this fast-paced atmosphere is not exactly conducive to relaxation and spending quality time with your family. A private villa offers a level of separation that allows you to really connect and bond with your loved ones, whether that involves playing games by your private pool, helping to cook dinner together, or simply sitting under the stars in quiet contemplation. Of course, you can also plan a range of exciting day trips in your chosen location as there are villas on offer all over Menorca, with destinations to suit everyone.
