A short 10-minute stroll from the centre of Alaior town lays the characterful luxury villa Alaior Gardens. Surrounded by 2.5 acres of rural terraced gardens and featuring its own plunge pool, life at Alaior Gardens happens outside. A large, shaded pergola is ideal for outdoor dining, while the terrace lounge calls for a good book and a glass of wine. A games basket (with volleyball, badminton, beach bats, boules, snorkelling gear, frisbee, fishing nets) is provided.

Inside, comfortable living areas, four bedrooms and three bathrooms are divided over three floors, with a top floor bedroom accessed externally.

Menorca features some of the Mediterranean's best beaches, with white sand bays along much of the island's 216km coastline. A 12-minute drive from the villa is the sandy beach at Son Bou, with Sant Tomas and Binihaus beaches also within easy striking distance. The island is recognised and protected as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, acknowledging as much Menorca's natural beauty as its historical importance. Several ancient archaeological sites dot the landscape, while the harbour area of Mahon - now a collection of ocean-front restaurants and cafes - also features Nelson's home and the British Naval hospital, a record of Menorca's more recent history and importance as a strategic British outpost.

Alaior itself is a beautifully authentic Menorcan town in the very centre of the island. It offers shops, bars, and restaurants within easy walking distance, perfect for a short stroll in the morning to grab freshly baked bread for breakfast. There is also a tennis club, bike rental and, nearby, a riding school.
