About this listing
Playas de Fornells, Minorca. Nicely furnished apartment. Sea views. Quiet location away from main road - no through traffic. All amenities and beaches very close by. Easy Parking. Surfboard available for (optional!) use of guests. WIFI internet.
This is a comfortable apartment in a quiet location that stays cool and airy even during high summer. Its slightly elevated position allows partial views over the bay of Cala Tirant and the Cavalleria headland. Just 150m away there is a small cove (which is usually deserted), and 500m away is the main Cala Tirant (also known as Playas de Fornells) beach. There are a few bars and restaurants, as well as a supermarket, within a couple of minutes walk.
The apartment has a modern kitchen (electric oven, gas hob, microwave, coffee machine, fridge-freezer), INTERNET wifi, television, washing machine and small terrace with wooden furniture.
The two bedrooms have sea views. One has a double bed and inbuilt wardrobes; the other is configured as an office with a sofa that also converts to a double bed. Both have ceiling fans though it is rarely necessary to use them.
The bathroom is of a generous size and has a bath / shower.
The apartment is an ample size for 2 persons and comfortable for up to 4. It would serve as the ideal base from which to enjoy a typical beach holiday, or to access the nautical activities offered in nearby Ses Salines and Fornells (both within easy reach by cycle path), or to explore the coastal paths (especially the Camí de Cavalls which circumnavigates the island and is ideal for walking and mountain biking).
There are some very nice walks nearby, please ask me and I can give more details.
Taxis will charge around 35€ to get to the urbanisation from the airport or there is a bus service (línea regular IB08) from Mahón bus station.
The apartment has double glazed windows throughout, electric radiators in bedrooms and bathrooms, and a woodburning stove in the lounge; but none of this changes the fact that Minorca in winter can be cold. Please be aware of this reality!
The woodburing stove throws out a lot of heat but rental does not include wood (this can be bought from the island's petrol stations, and lighting materials from the supermarkets). Please do not burn driftwood - it produces corrosive emissions.
The apartment is set in attractive and well maintained community gardens. Access by car for loading / unloading. Ample free parking behind apartment.
Interaction with guests
Contact through email, text message, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)...
In the unlikely event of a problem contact me and I will resolve it. The cleaning agency I use (MC Management) have their office 50m from the apartment so most things can get sorted very quickly (your contact at MC is called Gill and the apartment is called Alcor 3).
Other things to note
Internet / wifi in recent years has been good (streams video OK), but the service is not as fast or reliable as you would find in a city. Please bear this in mind if this is very important to you.
I only professional cleaners who are employed legally and fairly.
There is a longboard style SURFBOARD available for guests to use either in flat water for splash about fun or in waves (sometimes some north swell on Cala Tirant beach).
No smoking. Please consult first about pets.

Me gustan los lugares naturales, horizontes lejanos, el mar, los colores y la luz. Viví en Menorca 15 años, y el apartamento que alquilo fue mi casa. Todavía tengo muchos amigos en la isla, y vuelvo a menudo.
I like natural places, views into the distance, the sea, colours and light. I lived in Menorca for 15 years, and the apartment I am renting was my home. I have many close friends on the island and return frequently.
