A rustic farmhouse-turned-hotel on Menorca with 21 rooms, a pool, farm and Mediterranean Sea views
Occupying 100 acres on the sleepy Spanish island of Menorca, the Alcaufar Vell dates back to the 14th century. But this rustic farmhouse and stately private home (which has stayed in the same family for over 600 years) was dramatically transformed into a 21-room hotel that combines tasteful touches such as white-washed stone interiors, terracotta floors, exposed wood-beamed ceilings with modern conveniences like air-conditioning, Jacuzzi tubs and an outdoor pool. The hotel’s restaurant uses its farm fresh ingredients to churn out delectable Mediterranean cuisine, which can enjoyed on property or packed up in a picnic basket.
In the Area
Menorca is perhaps best known for its peaceful setting and dramatic Mediterranean scenery, and Alcaufar Vell is in a prime location set amidst fields near the coast in the southeastern part of the island. The hotel can suggest walks and other outdoor activities, but a short drive away is the white-stone village of San Luis, home to a windmill museum. And if you want to beach it, head to Cala en Porter, where glinting azure waters await.
