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.
There are many horse and pony riding centres around the island as well as a choice of spectacular equestrian shows which have now become a regular haunt for many of the islands' visitors.

The farm is dedicated to the breeding, care and training of the Menorcan breed horse and puts on regular performances and dressage displays. Visitors will also be able to look around the farm and stables, and facilities include a gift shop, a choice of places to eat and a childrens play area.Or why not venture to Calan Blanes or Sant Luis which both still practise the 200 year old traditional of trotting races? The jockey sits on a cart pulled by a horse and tries to maintain the trot - place your bets on the race!

Would highly recommend Villa Plus. If I could please comment on your representative Amanda in Son Bou, we had a couple of little issues and she sorted them out for us straight away, she is a credit to your company. Please pass on our thanks to her.
Good villa and excellent location.
