Truly stunning villa in a great location
Caroline H. 1st August 2017
This is a truly stunning villa and we loved so much about it. The villa was beautifully furnished in a comfortable yet understated elegant way. The pool was a great size for a large group and wonderful also for serious swimming. The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and it was so lovely going away in a group of 11 (we had some singles and some doubles but absolutely everyone was happy with their rooms). The games room was also very well used and the second large fridge was fabulous. As with most things it is all in the small detail and that is what made this a really great place to holiday. Unusually this is somewhere we would come back to again. The kitchen is well stocked with enough crockery and glassware (with good size G&T glasses). The fact that the kitchen was so well equipped made it so much easier catering for a large group.There were also comfortable beds, good quality pillows, a great stereo and even a choice of sun hats! In addition Tom and Sally-Anne were extremely attentive to our needs from the moment that we booked but also throughout our stay. PS the photos don’t do it justice and you really are a very short walk to all that you can possibly need.
A Stunning Villa
Elisabeth Cunningham E. & Family
We travelled as a party of ten retired ladies. La Calera is a superb villa which exceeded our expectations. It is in a quiet residential area and set in a large well cared for garden that leads down to the peaceful coastal road. The village shop and restaurants are close by.. It is not far to walk to the beach. The villa and grounds overlook the sea….wonderful. The property is well designed and mostly on one level. All rooms are tastefully decorated and well maintained. The living area leads out to a fantastic covered terrace which is perfect for meals and drinks with family or friends. There is a large bbq with cooking tools provided. There is a very efficient air-con system throughout. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need and there is a large fridge in the games room in addition to the one in the kitchen. There is plenty of space for a large party, both in the villa and outside. Lots of little areas to sit in the shade and enjoy some solitude if you want. The pool area is gorgeous with ample loungers.. The pool itself is very large and inviting. We had cause to call on the services of Redorka, the maintenance company, when one of my friends had to be rescued from her bathroom when the door handle mechanism broke. The company provided a swift and efficient service. Tom, the owner, offers excellent customer service and answers any queries promptly. He was very helpful. La Calera is a great choice for a large family or group of friends. It has everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. If you appreciate comfort and luxury, this is the villa for you. Highly recommended!
A little bit of Minorcan heaven

A superb villa in a quiet location facing the sea with wonderful views. A fantastic pool and gardens with lots of places to idle the day away. A short stroll to the village with a good supermarket, bakery and bars/restaurants. Also within easy driving distance of of Mao with its shops and bars and excellent restaurants plus El Castell where it is always a treat to return to Trebol and savour their excellent fish. Binibeca Vell beach is also only a short walk away and the village itself has some good restaurants especially for tapas. The villa is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and is spotless. We had a magnificent two weeks here and were reluctant to return home. Thank you Tom and Sally for allowing us to hire your little bit of heaven. Graham and Jill

We were a party of 15 staying at la Callera . We all had the most fantastic holiday ! The villa is truly beautiful , with fabulous views of the sea . No detail has been spared , the decor , the facilities are outstanding . We loved the space that is provided , especially for such a big party . The pool is magnificent , all 15 of us played games together without feeling cramped . The games room was a real bonus , and much used . The kitchen was excellent , and we ate on the glorious terrace which was lovely and spacious . The area is peaceful , but conveniently close to amenities . The beach is truly less than a 10 minute walk . All in all it is impossible to fault La Calera . I’m in no doubt we shall return one day ! Thank you to the owners also for making all our arrangements so easy.
Comforts of home in paradise

La Calera was even better than expected from the photos and descriptions. I rented the villa for my 40th birthday and it couldn’t have been more comfortable and relaxing for my guests. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable with quality linens and furnishings. The kitchen was well-appointed and a pleasure to cook in. The pool was perfection. I was amazed at the little details that are included – recommendations and services, pool toys and inflatables, food and wine in the welcome package on arrival, etc. La Calera immediately felt like home. Tom and Sally Anne were also incredibly friendly and easy to work with. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience at La Calera.
All our expectations fulfilled … and more

We went as a family of 14 comprising grandparents, parents and some young grandchildren. La Calera provided each and every one of us with everything that we needed for this holiday. The adults had access to this calm and beautifully appointed villa with amazing sea views in a great position and easy access to the beach and facilities of Binibeca. And the kids had access to the extensive grounds and one of the best private pools we have ever come across. If we can ever get everybody together again, we will certainly be back. Thank you Tom and Sally-Anne.
Fantastic family holiday!

This was our first extended family with three families (13 of us) travelling out to Menorca. La Calera is a spacious villa situated in Binibeca. It is in close proximity to the lovely Biniebeca beach and a short drive away from Punta Prima. The villa itself is well appointed and is very comfortable with en-suite bathrooms to all bedrooms. Each room has a separate exit to the rear of the property for easy access to the gardens and pool. There’s plenty of space for all and the games room kept the youngsters entertained when we stayed in. The large heated pool was enjoyed by the whole family. The owners (Tom and Sally) and the local agents couldn’t have been more helpful. We had an issue with one of the toilets not flushing on the second day and it was fixed within a couple of hours. We would thoroughly recommend staying at La Calera and would not hesitate in booking this accommodation again in the future.
La Calera – a little piece of Menorcan heaven
Paul W. 16th September 2015
We arrived at the villa in the hope that our expectations would match those reached from looking at the photographs and descriptions from the website and advance material sent to us by Tom and Sally-Anne (the owners). Our expectations were not matched – they were blown away. After standing on the verandah trying to take all in we finally managed to get ourselves sorted and unpacked and embarked on a fabulous three week stay in our little piece of Menorcan heaven. The facilities in the villa are superb; spacious and airy rooms, all well equipped with everything you could possibly need including the best ever wall mounted corkscrew! The view from the verandah is priceless and what a stroke of genius to obtain the plot in front to maintain it. There were thirteen of us staying and at no time did we feel overcrowded and there was always a quiet corner that could be found. The jewel in the crown is the pool. Our two grandchildren arrived having to use swimming aids and left having discarded them and both swimming like fishes. All the staff who maintain the villa were very helpful, polite and courteous and we had many an interesting early morning chat with the pool cleaner. All in all a fabulous place to stay and we all had glum faces when we had to leave. We certainly want to return.

The villa is extremely spacious and beautifully equipped with fabulous views of the sea and surrounding area. Plenty of space for our family to enjoy swimming in the huge tranquil pool, or chilling/chatting on the terrace with a drink, or just resting in quiet areas. Managing agents provided an excellent and very helpful service at all times and we would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to visit again.

We particularly liked the pool size and temperature, the excellent air conditioning throughout, the great views of the sea from the upper under cover patio where we could comfortably seat all twelve of our family, the proximity to the shops and restaurants within walking through the plot below the house, the well manicured gardens and the very well equipped house. We also spent much time in the games room.
A slice of paradise!

As you approach the property from the road it does not give the impression of the size at all. When you walk in the front door you are faced with a spacious hall with bedrooms to the left and kitchen to the right and a very elegant sitting room. And then beyond is the covered eating area with fantastic views to the sea and an enormous pool in the garden. The view is totally uninterrupted with a short walk through the olive groves to the sea. The accommodation is spacious with 7 good sized double bedrooms all en suite. We had such a lovely relaxing week. Menorca is a beautiful island well worth exploring. Bineneca is a delightful fishing village with a well stocked local shop and great restaurants serving fantastic seafood.
Outstanding villa, well equipped, perfect location
Sarah B. 1st August 2015
We booked the whole villa for a week in July and were absolutely delighted with every aspect of our holiday. The villa catered for the needs of the whole party (ranging between 1yr to 70yrs) and everything about it was perfect. It was spacious, well equipped, luxurious and comfortable; and for once, the assertion that it was ‘5 mins from the sea’ turned out to be true. We were particularly impressed with the service of your agents, and the garden was very well looked after. Thank you for a most memorable holiday.

We booked La Calera very last minute for a family get away to Menorca so had not done quite as much research as I normally like to do but really could not have asked for more. The villa itself is amazing, perfectly laid out so that it could take a large group or a small group like ours but never feel cramped or like you are rattling around. Everything from the quality of the duvets and pillows through to the décor and upkeep has obviously had a lot of thought (and taste) put into it. We always holiday in villas and have done so all around Europe and this is by far the nicest we have stayed in. Outside there is a picture postcard view from the balcony overlooking the sea and directly below is a stunning pool (where we spent most of our time with the kids!). The owners were extremely helpful from the start and during our stay and provided us with a great information pack which we pretty much followed and had some great meals in the restaurants they noted (best of all was a great and very reasonable lunch overlooking Mahon harbour in Latitude). We arrived at the villa very late and had stopped at a great little pizza van at the back of Binibeca beach thinking we would have nothing when we got there but we needn’t have bothered as there was a great stock of provisions waiting for us to welcome us to the villa (including a cold beer which was very welcome). I work in the holiday lettings industry in Cornwall and fully appreciate what goes into providing and maintaining a place like La Calera and the owners here have got it absolutely spot on. We have already recommended it to a few groups of our friends and will definitely be coming back again. Its my first time back to Menorca for nearly 20 years and its great to see that it is still the beautiful, quiet, unspoilt island that it was back then (in the area of La Calera anyway!). I cant recommend La Calera enough. Many thanks Tom and Sally-Anne for a great week.
A Holiday to Remember
David M. 31st may 2015
This was intended to be a holiday of a lifetime for myself and my family. There were 15 of us, which included my four children, their partners and 7 grandchildren, so a large villa was required. Having scanned the internet for a suitable villa, we settled on La Calera. The internet details and pictures showed and described the villa exactly as it was. What it couldn’t show or describe was the ambiance and feel we had for the place. By definition, when we first see something we get our first impressions. Our first impressions far exceeded our expectations, even though they were high after reading the details on the web site and seeing the pictures. It’s fair to say it was absolutely fabulous. Seven bedrooms, all with their own bathroom, plus one close to the lounge for the convenience of all. Well equipped kitchen, laundry room, games room with table tennis, pool and darts all made for a superb holiday to suit everyone’s taste The lounge décor was impressive with expertly chosen furniture which matched perfectly the style of the villa. Outside the well equipped patio with enough seating for all to dine and relax with sea views to yearn for. The child’s play house ensured my three year old grand-daughter also had something to keep her amused. The bar-b-que, the extra-large swimming pool the garden all combined to ensure that nothing was left to chance and a happy and memorable holiday was assured.
