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 a double bed and the other equipped with two single beds; they share a separate shower room. There are electric fans in all bedrooms.
The 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.

Our stay was lovely. The traditional design of the house with modern interior decorating and a large pool made for a very relaxing stay. The addition of fans in every room was much appreciated. The location is fantastic, in a nice and calm neighbourhood next to one of our favourite beaches as well as beautiful natural pools and a charming village for dining at night
The house was bright, clean and was absolutely perfect for our family (five adults and our grandson aged nine months). There was a travelcot with an extra comfortable mattress and crisp clean bed linen and a high chair. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. The area the house is in is very quiet which meant everyone got a good night’s sleep. We visited at the end of May and the weather was lovely and sunny so we made full use of the swimming pool which was clean and in excellent repair with suitable outdoor furniture. We will certainly be making a return visit
Our stay at the villa was fantastic. The villa is full of character and is decorated and furnished beautifully. The roof terrace and first floor bedroom have incredible wide views of the sea and coastline – brilliant at sunrise and sunset. The location is quiet and tucked away nicely from the road, the neighbourhood is local and peaceful. The villa is within walking distance of Binibeca fishing village and restaurants as well as the beach and coves. Inside the house is lovely, the open plan staircase to the main bedroom and roof terrace is a real feature of the property and oozes traditional Menorcan charm. The colours, furniture and decor feel like the sea and the beach and the large kitchen/diner window has a sea view. Our family loved the feel and vibe of the house and had a very enjoyable and relaxing time
What a beautiful villa! We came here with our young baby and had plenty of space to enjoy ourselves and we spent many hours of the day here. The view from the top terrace is the best and we enjoyed breakfast here. The house was comfortable and there were fans in the bedroom if you needed them
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
