‘Luxurious’, ‘modern’ and ‘stylish’ are the three words that spring instantly to mind when you first lay eyes on Villa Alba. Nestled in an exclusive and prime location in the upper area of San Jaime and showcasing some of the most spectacular views of the ocean and the south coast of Menorca, a stay at Villa Alba is sure to be a memorable one. This elegantly designed property is decorated throughout in dazzling white, with neutral accents and discreet pops of brights and pastels, featuring four bedrooms across two spacious storeys. The living/dining area is complete with sumptuous sofas in neutral shades, quality wooden furniture and contemporary-style light fixtures for a thoroughly modern home-from-home vibe. Guests will surely enjoy an evening cosied up in this well-appointed space, enjoying each other’s company over a glass of delicious local wine, or watching a movie on the villa’s flatscreen satellite TV.

Villa Alba has a separate kitchen, resplendent in gleaming white and featuring plenty of food preparation space and all of the high-end amenities you would expect. Find an oven and electric hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, coffee maker and dishwasher, along with plenty of cookware, crockery and utensils. The villa benefits from having a washing machine - a welcome addition for those who want to pack a little lighter for their trip and save some room in their luggage for those all-important souvenirs!

The villa’s four fully air-conditioned and spacious bedrooms are just as stylishly decorated as the rest of the villa. With a choice of two twin rooms or two doubles, sorting out sleeping arrangements for the whole family should be a breeze. Both double rooms enjoy ensuite facilities, with the master room featuring a king-size bed. Both doubles share a second modern bathroom and offer an equally restful and relaxing atmosphere, promising a comfortable night’s sleep.

Two outdoor terraces provide lounging and dining spaces- fully furnished and protected by remote-control sun-awnings. These beautifully designed areas offer guests the perfect spots for enjoying pre-dinner drinks, dining as a family, reading and relaxing; everything you could want from your holiday accommodation. A built-in barbecue area means you and your guests can enjoy alfresco cuisine while enjoying those stunning ocean views.

After a day of relaxation in the hot sun, a cooling dip is in order, and guests staying at Villa Alba are sure to want to take full advantage of the villa’s beautiful private pool. Easily accessible by Roman steps and overlooking the stunning San Bou beach, this luxurious addition will add a touch of magic to your family’s island holiday.

Villa Alba is located in the exclusive and beautiful San Jaime region, close to Son Bou Beach - one of the longest stretches of golden sand on the island of Menorca. The beach features elevated timber walkways over the dunes that provide easy access for pushchairs, prams and wheelchairs, making it popular with visitors who have small children and those with limited mobility. Son Bou beach can get busy during the summer months, but with so much space, it should be easy to find a quiet spot to set up for the day and enjoy the clear, shallow waters and soft sands. You’ll find plenty of family-friendly amenities here, such as lots of on-duty lifeguards, a first-aid post, a sun lounger and parasol hire, and a wide range of water sports activities that the whole family can enjoy.

You’ll find Club san Jaime near Son Bou beach, which is open from late morning until early evening and features some exciting water slides that the kids (and the adults!) will enjoy. Oliver recommends spending an hour or so here on a hot day. It’s great fun and very reasonably priced.

If you head into the centre of Son Bou, you’ll find several good supermarkets ideal for self-catering and plenty of places to buy well-priced trinkets and souvenirs. There are also ATMs, a good taxi rank, and an excellent bus service available if you want to travel a little further afield to Santo Tomas, which is also accessible along the coastal path if you fancy the walk. Santo Tomas is a slightly quieter resort than Son Bou, and this beautiful village is popular with families with young children. The resort is a nature-lovers paradise that features gorgeous remote beaches, countryside walks and cycling tracks - ideal for those who want to get away from it all and enjoy all of the beauty and peace this island offers.

 If you’d rather stay put in Son Bou, you’ll be pleased to know that a good selection of bars and restaurants cater to all tastes and budgets. For example, Casa Andres, which specialises in international cuisine as well as Mediterranean dishes and seafood, and Es Forn de Torre Soli Nou, where you can sample delicious Spanish meat dishes. For your evening’s entertainment, we recommend heading to Buddha Cafe bar, THE place to go for late-night musical entertainment. Or visit one of the many cocktail bars, such as La Roca and Mai-Tai, which have a dazzling array of colourful and delicious cocktails to enjoy.

THE REGION

The resort of Son Bou in the municipality of Alaior, on the south coast of Menorca, is renowned for having the biggest and probably best beach on the island. The resort is located around 20 kilometres from the international airport at Mahon.

Son Bou is a well-developed area containing many restaurants offering a good range of British, Indian, Chinese and Mediterranean dishes, as well as numerous bars, some of which are themed to help entertain young ones.

While the resort is very popular for families, the sheer size of the beach makes it easy for those who prefer to avoid the little ones to find their ideal spots! There is an abundance of natural sand dunes that make a very pleasant backdrop.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Alba, with its private pool, twin rooms and home-from-home comforts, is an ideal choice for those holidaying in the region with young children. The property is in a prime location within easy walking distance of the beach, shops and restaurants, so you won’t have to worry about little legs getting too tired when you head out to explore, eat or shop. The beach has good access for pushchairs and prams, with wooden walkways over the dunes and down to the sand. Although the beach can get busy at times and has areas that welcome naturists, it’s large enough that you should have no problem finding your own space to play and relax. The waters here are clear and shallow - perfect for paddling and snorkelling, and the addition of lifeguards and a first aid post add peace of mind to parents. Oliver recommends heading to the beach with a picnic and taking advantage of the beach’s shaded picnic area, complete with tables and benches for a fun family day out.

There are loads of exciting sporting activities available in Son Bou that the whole family will enjoy, including bicycle hire so that you can enjoy the many nature trails in the area and horseback riding experiences that allow the whole family to enjoy the spectacular views along the coast in a relaxing and unique way. Son Bou is also home to a scuba diving centre that caters to family groups, where guides provide a safe and fun experience, introducing kids and adults alike to the marine fauna of Menorca. Some excellent hiking routes through the fields and pastures are highly recommended for families with kids. The easiest route takes you to the virgin beach of Atalis and towards Santo Tomas. It is an enjoyable experience for the whole family without any steep climbs or rough terrain.
