A taste of Authentic Menorca. Great for Springtime stays as a base to explore
A great based to explore authentic Menorca from where every place is easily reachable and you can return home to a charming authentic town to enjoy the cafes , restaurants.
This is a great town for wandering early or late evenings when the heat of sun is not around and the light brings out the colours. The "third" capital of the island and a cultural centre. The old town is very pretty and makes a great change to the beach, with a good mix of little shops, Cafes, Bars and Restaurants. And some great hand made ice cream parlours! Childrens playground on the pretty town square (next to ice cream cafes!). The town founded in 1304 is built around the old hill of Ihalor hence the origin of its name (Alayor,Alaior) and provides great views over the surrounding countryside.
The narrow streets in the old town are usually immaculately clean and a big contrast to the annoying litter so common in the UK!
