Cumbre Mar, Playa Fornells
3 bedrooms – sleeps 6 – private swimming pool – aircon – 2 bathrooms – wifi
With jaw-dropping panaoramic views across the bay of Fornells, villa Cumbre Mar offers everything the dedicated holiday scenery watcher could want! It’s a tastefully furnished and decorated three-bedroom, two-bathroom villa situated in a quiet, elevated position above the resort of Playa de Fornells.
A pathway leads to the front door, through which you enter into the villa’s upper level. A small reception area leads off to an air-conditioned master double bedroom, tastefully decorated with bedside cabinets and lamps, fitted wardrobes and a private terrace with stunning views out to sea. There is another air-conditioned twin bedroom on this level with bedside cabinets and lamps, fitted wardrobes and a free standing fan. The two upstairs bedrooms share a newly refurbished shower room with spacious ‘walk-in’ shower.
From the small reception area, 16 stairs lead to the lower level and the fully fitted kitchen with quality white units, gas hob, oven, fridge/freezer, double sink, coffee machine, dishwasher and microwave. Also on this level is a spacious and newly refurbished shower room with large ‘walk-in’ shower. The third bedroom is also on this level – a twin, air-conditioned bedroom with bedside cabinets with lamps, fitted wardrobes and sea views from the window. There is also a ceiling fan in this bedroom.
Across from the kitchen and set on a galleried platform from the living area is the dining area with rectangular wooden dining table and wrought iron padded dining chairs for six. Two windows overlook the sea and surrounding coastline.
Two steps lead from the dining area down to the living area, which again is decorated to a high standard with modern furniture and soft furnishings. There is a three-seater sofa and two armchairs with scatter cushions, a coffee table, side table with lamp, music centre, 50in TV (with some UK channels) and a DVD player. Wifi internet access is provided.
Through french doors is a balcony with patio table and chairs for al fresco dining and another seating area with chairs and small drinks tables. The views from this balcony are truly breathtaking.
Outside the kitchen is a built-in barbecue with a seating area and a casita housing the washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also an outside sink and tap.
Stairs lead down to a lower terrace and sunbathing area with a large private swimming pool with Roman steps. The views from this area are again truly splendid.
Access to the villa is via a steep uphill private drive/road, so a hire car hire is recommended. Because of the elevated situation and steep drops around the pool terrace area, this villa is not recommended for very young children.

Cumbre Mar sits elevated above the resort of Playa Fornells, with fabulous views of the sea, and is perfectly positioned for a romantic sunset (if that’s your thing!) The villa is spacious, airy, with multi sun decks and a well maintained pool, perfect for secluded dips. We normally hire the villa for two but with three double bedrooms and two bathrooms with excellent showers (that’s my husband’s thing!) it is just as spacious for bigger parties. The management staff are always contactable and can’t do enough to help. I’d like to keep this gem of a villa to myself, but it’s too gorgeous. Enjoy
Cumbre Mar is simply beautiful. The villa itself is equipped with everything you need and the view is breathtaking. The weather was 30 degrees and clear skies every day, so we didn’t venture too far, instead made full use of the pool and stunning sunsets. I loved watching all the activity on the sea – everything from small boats and jet skis to tall ships and cruise liners. We ate in the local restaurants and walked the beach in the evenings, we found the secret turtles. We visited Fornells and my husband and son went on a sunset cruise. Gill and the staff at the property management company were so incredibly friendly and helpful. Thank you to you all for making this an easy and relaxing break. We will definitely be back
A perfect villa for our stay with teenage children… being high up on a bluff gives the villa breathtaking views from the main living area and terrace and pool. It is beautifully decorated with a very homely touch and well equipped for cooking… The nearby beach was in walking distance, and the location is good for ventures further afield with a car. There are good restaurants and bars locally too. We love Menorca and have been several times, but this is the best villa we have ever had on the island. I think it’s very good value for money!
Fornells has two distinctly separate parts: the old town and fishing village and the beachside resort area of Playa (or Platges) de Fornells. The town is a pretty resort of low whitewashed cottages, fishing boats bobbing on the harbour and restaurants on the palm-lined promenade. It’s famous for the excellent local lobster stew, calderata de langosta, which is served in almost every restaurant. The playa area is largely residential and there is a beautiful beach, Cala Tirant
