San Colomban, Binibeca
3 bedrooms – sleeps 6 – private pool – part aircon – wifi – sea views – near beach
Located less than 10 minutes walk from the quaint Binibeca Vell ‘fishing village’ and with gorgeous sea views from its roof terrace, San Colomban is a charming three-bedroom villa, tastefully decorated with a nautical theme and boasting a lovely private swimming pool.
San Colomban is situated in a small cul de sac along with five or six other houses and there is plenty of off-street parking; there are half-a-dozen steps down from the road to the front door and entry into the Mediterranean-blue-and-white themed main living area.
In this bright and airy space is seating for six in a cosy corner under the stairs and around the fireplace, and a TV offering mainly Spanish channels. A breakfast bar separates the living area from the compact kitchen, which is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, coffee maker and oven with ceramic electric hob. Next to the kitchen is a separate dining area with table to seat six.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor – one with air-conditioning and a double bed and another equipped with electric fans and two single beds; they share a separate shower room.
The air-conditioned master double bedroom is upstairs, where you will also find a small landing area with desk space. There are fitted cupboards in the main bedroom, and a king-size bed, and there is a separate bathroom equipped with a bathtub with shower over. Doors lead from the master bedroom to a lovely roof terrace with fabulous views out over Binibeca bay.
Glass doors from the downstairs living area provide access to the rear terrace, which leads to the 8x3m private pool at the side of the property. There are sunloungers around the pool, deckchairs and a small wooden dining table with directors chairs, as well as a barbecue.
San Colomban is brilliantly located for the shops and many restaurants of Binibeca Vell and is also less than 20 minutes walk away from Binibeca’s lovely child-friendly beach. All resort amenities are within walking distance and no hire car is necessary.

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
