Menorca Villas

Menorca, also Minorca or the "minor" island as how the Romans called it, boasts of untouched beaches on its 216km coastline. It is known as the island with a strong personality, and legend has it that the winds of Menorca have the power to change the personality of people.

Ruled by the British for almost 80 years, and also by the French for some time, Menorca is famous today for its tranquil beaches and ancient monuments. With an almost virginal interior, it was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993, to preserve its wetlands and archaeological sites.

The capital, Mao (also Mahon), lies on the eastern end of Menorca, and is believed by some to be the true origin of one of the culinary world’s most basic sauces, mayonnaise.

The climate in Menorca is wetter and cooler, giving this "windy island" a distinct advantage over the other islands during the summer months.
