Re: Moving to Menorca

I understand the taxi licenses are limited in number, and there's a waiting list some years long to get one. That's hear say though.

Re: Villers to rent at christmas

The issue is the high level of damp in the winter, ours is "winterised" in October. It either needs to be lived in and heated or winterised and dehumidified from then. For the low rate one can ask out of season it's just not cost effective for us. A long let might make sense, but not weeks here and ...

Re: Security systems monitored.

If it helps you judge demand, as someone who owns and lets a villa on the island, I would not want either CCTV or an alarm system.

Re: Restaurant Recommendation

I've eaten in all of these. Dos Pablo's isn't for a special meal. Can Bernat isn't fine dining, but Danny and co will make you feel special. That leaves torralbenc and es Moli de doc. Torralbenc lacks atmosphere and can serve up a few weak dishes. Es Moli de Foc is faultless, everytime. Michellin st...
