Split level house with charm and character adjoining wooded green belt.
- english, french, spanish
Originally from the UK, Kent area, I have lived in Menorca for 35 years, running a harbour side restaurant with my husband and raising my family, who have now all grown and flown the nest. I now dedicate myself to improving my property in Binibeca in the winters and visiting my family during the summer whilst my house is enjoyed by others.
Helen purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Helen chose Binibequer Vell
The mature gardens and split levels of this property provide several different areas to relax, dine, sunbathe or simply while away the time with a book in the hammock under the trees listening to the birds.
What makes this Villa unique
The unique benefits of this property are definately found in its location. It is so close to the beach you can hear the waves on a breezy day. This proximity to both beach and all amenities make car rental a personal choice and not a necessity, yet it is quiet and secluded surrounded by pines and wild olive trees. There are both sunny and shaded areas within the garden making it ideal for all preferences and age groups.

Beautiful place in great location
Helen’s place is beautiful, exactly as it is in the photos. It was perfect for our family holiday and in a great location with the beach only 2mins walk and a little children’s park out the back gate. Our girls loved it and so did we! It’s also walking distance to the shops and some really lovely restaurants. Would highly recommend and Helen was extremely helpful. We’re already planning our trip back!
A lovely holiday
We had a great holiday in this comfortable villa! We particularly loved the proximity to the beach, the outside seating area and the pool that was large enough for a proper swim. It is very well equipped with comfortable beds. Yes it was warm at night, but we got used to it and the fans helped. Helen was communicative and helpful, both before and during our stay. Having been to Binibeca three times before in different villas, we would definitely return to Helen’s villa.
We had an amazing week in such a great location, especially with the beach within touching distance - early beach visits with the children and then sundowners at the beach bar were just awesome. The villa is very well kitted out, apart from we bought bigger glasses to take gin portions but perhaps that’s just us... :-). Another great stay in Menorca and thanks Helen for being so welcoming.
It was great to welcome Charlie and his friends and family back to the villa.
No Charlie.......it is not just you....I think another guest another year bought some gin glasses....I supply wine glasses and tumblers.....I will take the hint and add gin glasses to my ‘well kitted’ villa!😊Thank you and hope to see you back another year.
Peaceful and relaxing location
The villa was fab and Helen was a great host. Well equipped and lots of space for our group of eight. Short transfer from the airport. The garden is lovely with lots of shady areas and hammocks to relax in. The children loved the pool and it was big enough for our huge pink flamingo which we hired! We saw one of the tortoise and left it water and fruit. Some nice local restaurants and places to have a cocktail. Lovely ice creams from the van by the beach. The landtrain to Punta Prima was bumpy but lots of fun. Mahon market is worth a visit and there’s lots of places to eat there. Overall we had a great 2 weeks the only downfall was no aircon in the villa. It was very hot and with high humidity we all struggled to sleep at night, even with a fan in the rooms and windows open. Also bring lots of mosquitoe repellent as we all got lots of bites even with the spray on.
Thank you for this review and kind comments.
It was unfortunate that the second week of this fortnight coincided with the hottest temperatures recorded across the whole of Europe for many years......usually the 5 large floor fans are more than sufficient.
I enjoyed meeting Debbie and her lovely family and would like to thank them for looking after my home beautifully.
Perfect Location for relaxation
We had a fabulous week in the villa as a three generation adult family .The property is ideally located for the beach and only a short stroll to lovely restaurants in nearby Cala Torret where there are some great restaurants with terraces overlooking the sea or in the other direction to Binibeca Vell. There are well stocked supermarkets in both places too.
My sons enjoyed a dive trip at the nearby dive centre which is very well equipped.
We did not need to hire a car as taxis were easy to call and the bus service into Mahon was punctual .
The villa itself was a haven for peaceful relaxation with lots of places to sit in either shade or sun in the wonderful gardens.The pool was large enough for swimming .The villa is well equipped and has modern bathrooms and kitchen and was spotlessly clean and the only fault was that it lacked air conditioning.
We would thoroughly recommend this villa.
And finally ... yes we did see two of the tortoises!
What a lovely villa this is, clearly a much loved family home. Beautifully appointed, 5 -10 minutes walk in either direction to plentiful restaurants and small supermarkets. The villa itself is well furnished with plenty of crockery and cutlery in the kitchen. The pool area is wonderful.
The only shame is that there is no aircon. Although it wasn't boiling hot, it would have been nice for the more sultry nights.
The relaxed resort of Binibeca has many amenities including a sheltered sandy cove with beach bar serving food and drinks at the waters edge; a variety of bars and restaurants; the ever popular fishing village of Binibeca Vell with its small harbor, gift shops and open air restaurants; and the commercial center of Cala Torret. The resort also offers a number of supermarkets, bike hire, diving, and tennis courts, making it a great place for a family holiday. Car not essential.
Other Activities: Kayaking, snorkeling, go-karting, bird watching.
Golf: Son Park Golf course, 18 holes 25 minutes drive.......
