More and more French families choose this paradisiacal destination for their second home
Choosing a place to establish a second home where you can spend the summer or spend long stays away from the inclement weather and the complications of cities, is usually not an easy task. There are many alternatives but we want to tell today the seven best reasons to choose Menorca.
1. It is a unique and paradisiacal island
Menorca is one of the most idyllic and paradisiacal tourist and holiday destinations in the Mediterranean. An island very close and inhabited by less than one hundred thousand inhabitants. Its 700 square kilometers are so full of nature, exceptional landscapes, diversity of habitats and extensive white beaches and incredible coves that UNESCO declared it a Biosphere Reserve in 1993.
2. Adapted to your lifestyle
The second reason is that Menorca is special: it allows you to live with the lifestyle you want. Everything is within reach of a bike ride and, by car, any destination is a maximum of 30 minutes away. Here there is no rush and tranquility and relaxation predominate in every way. You will not find a better place to enjoy your free time, the excellent gastronomy, glamorous and classy places… and all this with great security and feeling protected.
3. Linked to our history
In Menorca you will feel at home. Among the six thousand Europeans registered, there are many French people who have chosen it as their home. The island is closely linked to our history and even for several years, in the mid-eighteenth century, was French property. Not in vain, we founded some of the most characteristic infrastructures such as the Camí dels Cavalls trail (which allows us to surround the entire island) or the town of Sant Lluis.
4. It has excellent communications
The fourth reason to choose Menorca is that it is less than two hours by flight from Paris. Menorca International Airport (MAH) has many connections with France, but also allows you to come by boat. Through regular lines, even with your own car, or if you come with your boat, you have more than a dozen marinas and marinas of first level.
5. Enviable climate and nature
Enjoying sunlight and an ideal temperature is very possible. In Menorca the average annual temperature is 17º, and you can enjoy more than 12 hours of sunlight daily between May and September. The population values, protects and enjoys its natural landscapes with great ecological and environmental awareness. On the island there is no pollution, no traffic jams, not even hardly any traffic lights…
6. Great cultural and leisure offer
Despite its size, it is surprising that in Menorca there is so much variety of cultural offer. To its tourist attractions, there is a very varied cultural program that covers all kinds of activities. It is very significant that the well-known Swiss gallery Hauser&Wirth has set its sights on the island and established one of its exclusive art centres.
7. It’s time: there are real estate opportunities
The seventh big reason to choose Menorca is that now is the time. During these last years many large and well-known French families have settled on the island. But now the demanding environmental and urban planning laws mean that there is hardly any new construction real estate supply. Although precisely this summer the ambitious project of Arenal Beach has begun in the north of the island, looking at the Mediterranean, next to the beach of crystal clear waters of Arenal d’En Castell.
This promotion is a real opportunity to achieve the lifestyle that Menorca guarantees. In the municipality of Es Mercadal, 19 kilometers from Mahon, where the airport is, is this luxurious urbanization, with 32 apartments of between 2 and 3 bedrooms and between 100 and 260 square meters, with all the comforts, the best qualities and fully customizable by a team of interior designers and architects.
The exclusive promotion of Arenal Beach offers you a way of life adapted to the new times, an authentic accessible luxury very difficult to find on the best island in the Mediterranean. The apartments unite the privacy and comfort of the individual areas (with solariums, terraces, gardens, garages, storage rooms and even private pools in the attics), with common areas equipped with spaces for leisure (infinityview pools), social relations and health (gym, spa, cafeteria …)or work(business center with meeting zones)
And in addition, as it could not be otherwise in this privileged environment of Menorca, the buildings of Arenal Beach follow criteria of sustainability and respect for the environment, with an excellent energy rating that manifests the commitment of the new generations with the planet and the future.
It is clear that there are plenty of reasons to choose Menorca. Do you want to know Arenal Beach?
