We are an English married couple that have lived on Menorca for nearly 3 years with our 2 horses, 2 Sheep dogs, rescue dog & our 2 cats. We speak some Spanish but are keen to learn more.
Our home is remote & quiet but not isolated. The beach is 3 mins' away in the car, the local supermarket / bar is 2 mins away in the car. The capital city of Menorca is 10 mins' away in the car. The port of Mahon & the islands only airport are 15 mins' away in the car. We have 2 cars & 2 bicycles. Everything mentioned above is only 30 mins away on the bikes.
We have a lovely garden over looked by our covered terrace. We have a swimming pool and stunning views across open countryside. Our horses live on our land very close to our house. Our dogs live in a kennel outside but are very much family members & roam free with us as much as possible.
