Menorca is well known for its beaches with crystal clear waters and for the tranquillity you can breathe in. It is one of the best preserved islands in the Mediterranean (not in vain is it a Biosphere Reserve) which has begun to pay off, especially in times of pandemic, placing the island in the international spotlight which has meant that it has begun to overtake its sisters (Mallorca and Ibiza) in terms of tourist interest.
Normally, anyone wishing to buy a property in Menorca has in mind to do so in one of the most important towns (Mahon or Ciutadella) or in Fornells, famous for its fantastic bay. It is also common to buy in a coastal holiday village or a country house in the interior.
However, the great unknowns are the small villages of Menorca which, in our opinion, have a special charm as they have preserved the flavour of the island through the ages. Today we are going to take a look at some of them along with some of the properties you can buy.
A few kilometres from Es Mercadal, the nerve centre of the island, is the bucolic village of Es Migjorn. This beautiful village maintains the soul of the island in all its essence with small streets, whitewashed houses and traditional shops. It also has a bar famous on the island for its tapas of Menorcan food. It is also very close to Santo Tomás, one of the most famous beaches on the island.
