Hotel Rural Binigaus Vell

The brains behind Hotel Rural Binigaus Vell renovated a large farm and horse stables, creating rooms and suites with historical details like tile floors, beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls, and antique furnishings. The buildings are whitewashed with terracotta tiled roofs and border charming stone fences that twist through the property. You'll find trails through shrubby forests that lead through the original farmland to the beach in 45 minutes, though the coast at Santo Tomás is just a 10-minute drive.

The hotel offers four types of rooms, and though perfectly comfortable, the standard option feels pretty basic. You might want to upgrade for more space, privacy, and the perk of having your own outdoor area. The suites add seating areas, and the deluxe suite features a private plunge pool and sun loungers.

Embrace the rural setting from the very start by enjoying breakfast outside on the patio or in the dining room, where the on-site restaurant provides dinner service. During the day, relax at the outdoor pool with its sun terrace, in the leafy garden, or in the cozy lounge. There's also a bar, perfect for grabbing a drink and sitting by the pool. The hotel can arrange packed lunches and horseback riding at their stable. Learn more

Alcaufar Vell

Alcaufar Vell sits on an expansive estate with an 18th-century house, centuries-old trees, farmland, and gardens. The hotel grounds provide two trails, one perfect for running or jogging and the other for a stroll to experience the area's natural surroundings. As a fun perk, the kitchen is happy to prepare a picnic for your walk so you can truly enjoy this rural setting. There's also a restaurant serving authentic Menorcan meals and prioritizing seasonal produce and goods from local markets. Have dinner outside in the garden or arrange a private meal anywhere on the estate. You'll also find a cozy bodega with regional wine, vermouth, and other drinks.  

The hotel's charming rooms offer historical features to match the property's past, such as wood-beamed ceilings, stone walls, archways, and antique furnishings. Higher-tiered units add sofas, separate bedrooms, dining areas, and private terraces. Though the historical setting is mostly charming, some bathrooms and bed linens could use an update. Learn more
