Villa Description

Swimming pool, BBQ area and outside space

Outside, the large private swimming pool sits between the 2 buildings, and there's a smaller, shallower adjoining pool, great for children or non-swimmers (depth 1.3- 1.6ft). The surrounding terrace is dotted with sunbeds, and a large palm offers a bit of natural shade. By the poolside is a pergola with a table and chairs and a fantastic BBQ house with a second picnic style table with bench seating, as well as a second smaller BBQ area on the opposite side of the terrace.


Entrance

Gates from the street open onto the villa grounds which are fully enclosed. The house is split into 2 bungalow style buildings - Gemini I and Gemini II. Both houses are part of the same property and are solely for your party's use. Off-road parking is available 100 metres from the property. There is space to pull up outside to unpack belongings before moving the car.


Living space

Each villa has an open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen, the layout of one mirroring the layout of the other. Both have comfortable seating, a table and chairs and a breakfast bar by the well-equipped kitchen, decorated in a traditional style, with locally made ornaments.


Bedrooms and bathrooms

Villa Gemini has 6 bedrooms in total. There's a double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms, as well as a bathroom and shower room in each building. All bedrooms are comfortable, bright and well-furnished, with plenty of storage space.

Villa Location

Villa Gemini sits right in the centre of Cala Blanca. A few minutes' walk along the street will bring you to the shops and restaurants of the local commercial centre. The venues at the far end, right on the seafront, have the best view of the sunset on the entire island! Less than 10 minutes' walk in the other direction is Cala Blanca's beautiful sandy beach and selection of beachfront restaurants. Plus, the ancient capital of Ciutadella can be easily reached either by car or local bus.

Location Features

Local markets and shopping

There's a couple of small mini markets within a few minutes' walk, at the commercial centre, as well as several gift and beachwear shops.

Serious shoppers should head into Ciutadella, 20 minutes' drive away, or a short journey by local bus or taxi. Once the capital of Menorca, this historic town has an excellent choice of chic clothing boutiques and craft shops, as well as a twice weekly market. Plus, there's a lively evening market in the summer too.


Bars and restaurants

The commercial centre has a good choice of restaurants and cafes. Cala Blanca's position on the far West Coast of the island means that it gets great views of the sunset which are best enjoyed from any of the bars and restaurants on the far side of the complex, by the seafront. The resort's sandy beach, 10 minutes' walk in the other direction, also has a handful of good waterside venues.


Beaches

Cala Blanca has a lovely sandy beach with sunbeds and parasols for hire and a choice of cafes and restaurants down either side of the bay where you can stop for lunch. The alternative beaches of Cala Santandria and Sa Caleta are both within a 10 minute drive further north if you fancy a change of scenery.


Family fun

Hiring bicycles or 4 wheeled pedal carriages locally is a great way to see more of the resort, and is a fun activity you can do as a family. The neighbouring resorts of Calan Bosch and Calan Forcat each have a waterpark, both within a short drive. On the far side of Ciutadella is the popular Castillo Menorca Complex which has various pools and waterslides, trampolines, mini golf, go-karting, a restaurant and shops. Further afield is Lloc de Menorca Zoo, 40 minutes' drive away, between Alaior and Mahon.


Places of interest

Cala Blanca is only 20 minutes' drive from Ciutadella. The town is great for shopping and dining, and is also home to Menorca's only cathedral as well as the impressive Lithica sandstone labyrinth. You can also visit Menorca's highest point, Monte Toro, which has glorious panoramic views as well as a great gift shop and café, 40 minutes' away by car. Or, why not venture across the island and spend a day in Mahon? Its wealth of shops and restaurants, lively market and spectacular harbour - the second largest natural harbour in the world - are well worth seeing!


Golf

There is only 1 golf course on the island, located 45 minutes' drive away in the resort of Son Parc.


Other activities

The well-known Cami de Cavalls bridle path is a great way to see more of the island, and is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The path is accessible from all resorts along the coast and offers some spectacular scenery - don't forget your camera!

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving

With its underwater caves and coral encrusted rock formations, Menorca is recognised as one of the most spectacular diving locations in the Med. for scuba diving and snorkelling. Dive schools located around the island provide daily excursions and equipment for visiting qualified divers. For the beginner - now is your chance - the qualified instructors can have you scuba diving in less than 2 hours! Parascending is now made easy with modern techniques of launch and recovery from the boats' platform - there's no need to even get wet! The not so adventurous are normally allowed, for a small fee, to ride along in the boat.

Castillo Menorca

Castillo Menorca

Castillo Menorca, located on the main road between Ferreries and Cuitadella, has an adults pool with a water slide and a childrens pool, as well as mini golf, trampolines, a childrens play area, a shopping complex selling leather goods, jewellery, ceramics and gifts, a snack bar and a fantastic go-karting track! WiFi is also available. In addition to the above, several resorts also have water slides or splash pools, the largest being in Son Bou. Smaller slides for younger children can be found in Cala Galdana and Cala Blanca.

Lloc de Menorca Zoo

Lloc de Menorca Zoo

Lloc de Menorca Zoo, located on the main road from Mahon to Alaior, is sure to be a hit with the kids! The zoo has a range of creatures from farm animals to more exotic zoo animals and children will also be able to pet some of the farm animals. The zoo also has a small splash pool, 2 museums, a picnic area, snack bar and a gift shop.

Monte Toro

Monte Toro

El Toro, at 360 metres above sea level, is the highest peak on Menorca. In the centre of the island it towers above the small town of Es Mercadal. Take the time to drive up the steep 3.2km climb to the summit and see the whole of the island spread out beneath you. There are sea views on all four sides and, on a clear day, the view stretches to the north coast of Mallorca. The mountain is crowned by a convent which has become an important centre of pilgrimage and the neat vegetable and herb gardens beneath the terraces are still tended to by the community of nuns who live there. Visit the tiny chapel or have lunch in the rustic café and browse around the shop, packed with souvenirs and local produce.

Golf Son Parc

Golf Son Parc

There is only one golf course on the island, set amongst the pine trees in Son Parc, on the North coast. It has recently been extended from 9 holes to 18 and is open 365 days per year. There is an 18 bay floodlit driving range with the latest technology - Swingcam. Junior golfers are welcome if accompanied by an adult and the golf shop stocks equipment for purchase or hire for children of 5 years upwards. The dress code is lenient - shorts, t-shirts and trainers are acceptable but NOT sleeveless vests, swimwear, flipflops etc.If golf plays an important part of your holiday then it is wise to book in advance.http://www.golfsonparc.com/en

We didnt need the rep services but Julie visited us to check we were ok and if we needed anything. She talked to us about the local area and gave us some very useful information based on her knowledge of the area. She was a very lovely lady and this was really appreciated. The twin villa set up is a brilliant idea for families wanting to holiday together but not to be in each others pockets.

As a disabled person this villa worked very well for me and my family. Overall, a super holiday, and as usual with your company, all the pre-travel arrangements and instructions etc, worked very smoothly. Hope that I shall be in a position to travel with you again next year. Thank you, Freda Bryant

Lovely Villa, which is split into two around a pool. Probably suited to larger groups of people. Villa plus were efficient throughout the holiday and would definitely use them again, as I have done over the last few years.
