London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies
Girls weekend away have now been scientifically proven as therapeutic for all parties involved, including families at home, let me confirm 😉 And Menorca has been a regular treat for us, sans kids or with them in tow, so read on for what to do in Menorca, an island we fell in love with and been over 5 times.
We like the Balearics for a long time, but 2017 marked the year when one of my best uni friend moved back to Menorca. No wonder that translated into few lovely long week-ends including girls weekends away. An opportunity also to put together our best things to do in Menorca, including favourite restaurants, lounges, clubs, and sailing itinerary! As well as to deliberate about the best hotels around Port Mahon Menorca : Casa Ladico – the perfect pied a terre, authentic, boutique and inviting to zen.
Our base for the 4 days girls getaway Menorca was Mahon – great to soak in the history and culture by day and wander around its gorgeous lounges and clubs by night.
Casa Ladico Mahon is the perfect pied a terre and a gorgeous boutique hotel. The premises are charming and boutique: Menorcan old building with Mediterranean old charm renovated chic and sleek.
The personnel is enchanting and going the extra mile for each client. The location is right in the historic Mahon and few steps away gorgeous views over the harbour; for guests like us, there’s a green yard therapeutic and feng shui to forget about all, relax and dip in a swimming pool. Tranquillity, charm and eclectic go hand in hand. The dinners are superb, the wine selection gorgeous and the dishes exquisite. Opened in 2017, Casa Ladico Mahon makes a perfect couple getaway, parents retreat (no kids under 12!), friends looking for exquisite dining, wining and soaking in Mediterranean vibes and rich Menorcan history. So we deliberated, the best hotel Port Mahon Menorca.
My sweetest Menorcan friend treated us with 4 days organised at perfection. Sunset drinks by the lighthouse overlooking Mahon’s harbour, dinner at Casa Ladico, drinks in the glam & buzzy harbour.
Nature Reserve S’Albufeira next day, promenades by stunning lunar landscapes and the lighthouse Favaritx.
A refreshing dip in the sea, nap on the beach by Cala Binibiquer and thereafter sunset drinks by Los Bucaneros – a lovely rustic chiringuito.
Saturday we danced away the night with gorgeous sailers at Isabella
Chill out on Sunday – sailing in crystal clear waters – Maldives looking like – life does not get sweeter than this.
Cava and lunch on the boat and thereafter more sailing and swimming at sunset by picturesque Fortalesa de la Mola and Castell de Sant Filip.
Sunday night we had a beautiful dinner in the middle of the vineyards at Binifadet – great catch up with my darling friends and many emotional moments.
The cuisine is local and exquisite– the ingredients are fresh and delicious, cooked at perfection and go greatly with Binifadet local wines.
Monday we wrapped up the Menorcan weekend by the local market in Mahon, another walk around the Harbour and thereafter the spectacular Cova d’en Xoroi.
Grateful for the most amazing friends and very lucky to go back to Menorca for a grown up blast, wining, dinning and chilling with the best hotel port Mahon Menorca. If one has more time on their hands and needs further ideas on what to do I Menorca, head to Hort Sant Patrici to check out locally produced wine and cheeses; a stunning boutique hotel, museum and vineyards – a couple of pics in here.
