Both bedrooms have amazing sea views to wake to in the morning.The apartment is in a traditional Menorcan style which we consider a home from home, an ideal location to recharge your batteries.The Sea is just a few minutes walk in front of the apartment and the beach is a little further down the road. There are a few Restaurants a short walk away and the nearest one 3-4 minute walk is 'Okapi' which is rated in the top 5 restaurants in Fornells area according to Trip Advisor. Along with supermarkets & restaurant owned pools where you can swim if you are enjoying their facilities. If you have children there is a mini waterpark with slides next to the supermarket at the beach (small charge applies) A short drive away is the famous harbour at Fornells and a chance to enjoy varying cuisines at the fine restaurants, you may even spot the King of Spain who occasionally moors his Yacht in the harbour to enjoy a meal in his favourite restaurant. This lovely fishing village also offers a wonderful up market shopping experience in its fine shops. Enjoy walks along the unspoilt coastal paths, discover coves all along the Northern Menorcan coastline.Banks and ATM's available in Fornells and Es Mercadal. Internet and WiFi facilities offered by Bars and restaurants nearby including Okapi restaurant mentioned above. Sailing and wind surfing at Ses Salines and Fornells. Diving centres in Playas de Fornells and Fornells itself. Coastal and rural walks - the Cami de Cavalls have now been opened up all around the island. Spring and late summer is an excellent time for 'twitchers' to see migratory birds. Fascinating archeological sites abound, often with free entry at weekends. The 'tourist board' issues weekly events sheets - find street markets, fiestas, concerts, jazz, theatre, art galleries etc - always plenty going on.We can offer additional items should you wish :-Cot with linen €25 p/wFood pack inc Milk, Bread, butter, jam, coffee, water & fruit juice €20. Please let us know should you need any of the above upon booking. The apartment is available from 2pm on the day of arrival & the apartment needs to be vacated by 10am on your departure day. The area of Fornells season generally starts in May and closes down in November, January to March can get cold and wet so please bear this in mind when booking. During low season the supermarkets are open in Mercadel (5 minute drive) and a small number of restaurants are open in Fornells Harbour area or further away in Mahon, Ciutadella. This can be a beautiful time to visit Menorca while the temperature is cooler and the plants and flowers are in bloom. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: ET/2905/MEMore

About the neighbourhood
Fornells is on the northern coast of Minorca. It is a peaceful fishing village whose bay is one of the biggest natural harbours on this Balearic Island (five kilometres long and two wide). There are a series of small beaches around the bay, along with the island of Las Sargantanes, where there is a fort that was built under English rule. Fornells has inspired many artists and is within a protected nature area. It is an ideal area for sailing. Don't visit the village without trying one of Minorca's gastronomic specialities: lobster casserole. At the end of July the San Antonio fiestas take place with the traditional 'jaleo', with horses jumping up and down to the sound of music.
Getting around
Hire cars are available to be collected from Mahon airport ( best booked prior to arrival). Also there are taxi's located at the airport and cost around €40 to Fornells. There is also a bus stop in front of the apartment should you wish to use this service to visit other towns etc.
