Villa Mar y Roca, Binibeca

2 bedrooms – sleeps 4 – private pool – wifi – close beach

Villa description

Villa Mar y Roca (literally ‘sea and rock’) is an appropriately named compact villa nestling on a hillside above the Cala Torret area of Binibeca, about 10 minutes walk from Binibeca beach.

It’s a charming little villa in the classic Menorquin style with simple features and a lot of style. You enter the house down a flight of steps (this is not a suitable property for those with limited mobility) from the property’s exclusive roadside parking space. The house is well below road level, so is quite private and out of sight of passers-by.

The property’s upper level is dominated by the large private swimming pool with roman-step access. There’s room for four sunloungers at the pool’s top edge, and there’s a lovely covered terrace area with dining table and chairs.

The spacious living area is entered via French windows from the terrace – there’s a small settee and a couple of chairs near the TV (offering mainly local channels) as well as a large wooden dining table.

The kitchen is off the living room and features oven/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave oven as well as toaster, kettle, coffee maker etc. There’s a separate washing area with washing machine on the upper level.

You go down a flight of steps to the sleeping area, where you will find a double bedroom with wardrobe space and chest of drawers, an ensuite shower room and a small terrace (with table/chairs) offering views down the valley to the sea. The second bedroom has two single beds and has use of a separate shower room. Both bathrooms have WCs.

Mar y Roca is an eco-friendly villa – all resort amenities are within walking distance and no hire car is necessary. The property does not have air-conditioning.

About Binibeca

Binibeca is one of the most popular family resorts on Menorca’s south-east coast (the other being nearby Punta Prima) and, thanks to the lack of hotels and apartment complexes, it has a very ‘residential’ feel and a lot of villa accommodation along the coastal road and back up into the gentle hills behind. Binibeca beach is situated towards the eastern end of the resort and is a lovely sandy spot for families, with safe bathing for small ones, sunbeds for hire and a charming beach bar. At the furthest east of Binibeca is Cala Torret, a small village of whitewashed cottages surrounding the rocky coast and a popular boating slipway. There is a supermarket, a lovely café-cum-bakery and a number of bars and restaurants including Bar Paupa, right at the water’s edge. There’s a children’s playground here also, and a busy dive centre, and there are tennis courts nearby. If you walk westwards from Cala Torret, past the beach, you will come across a few distractions in the form of bars and restaurants, and a supermarket, before reaching the Binibeca Vell end of town, where you will find the ‘fishermen’s village’, built nearly 50 years ago, with its narrow, winding streets, whitewashed homes, supermarket and several lively bars and restaurants. From Cala Torret to Binibeca Vell is approximately 1.5km, or a gentle 15-minute stroll along the relatively level coastal road. There is a ‘road train’ during the summer months which plies between Binibeca and Punta Prima, and there is a regular bus service between the resort and the nearby towns of Sant Lluis and Mahon
