We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

If being close to a beach is a must, then a Son Bou villa holiday is the ideal choice! Boasting the longest stretch of sand on the island of over 2 kilometres, this traditional resort ticks all the boxes for a family getaway. A car isn't necessary during your Son Bou villa holiday, as this small resort has a selection of shops, bars and restaurants which all cater for children, and there’s even a mini-train which runs through the town. Positioned on the south coast of Menorca, Son Bou is within close proximity of both vibrant Mahón and the old capital of Ciutadella.
Lovely private villa with an enormous swimming pool, well situated only five minutes walk down a steep hill to bars and restaurants. Excellent service from local support team, we called on them twice and they sorted our issues within the hour each time.

Lovely villa with amazing views. Us and our 2 kids had an amazing week here and are considering booking it again. The villa is spacious and has the most amazing pool area. Located close enough to the bars and restaurants and just a short walk to a beautiful beach.
Fri 11 Oct 2019
Beautiful villa, our third visit in 6 years. Ticks all the boxes being close to the airport, mahon town, and very close to Son Bou beach and restaurants. The villa is set in peaceful and quiet surroundings with a stunning panoramic ocean view. Ideal for families or a group of couples.

Overall near excellent as usual with Solmar.

A lovely villa with a stunning view in one of the best resorts that we have been to in Menorca, plenty of restaurants too choose from and a nice safe beach.

Villa has a great pool and is ideally placed for the main area of Son Bou. Son Bou has a great beach and the Buddha Lounge is fantastic.

VIlla Bella Vista has the most fantastic pool area and the views are stunning. The house itself is very spacious and has everything needed. There are some areas that need updating and it appears this is in the process of being done. Realistically, all our time was spent outside which was amazing. The team looking after the villa responded quickly with some slight issues we had during our stay. I would recommend this villa and would not hesitate in returning.

So spacious, beautiful view and fantastic pool

This is a really lovely Villa, but it is the outside space that seals the deal for us. Lots of different seating areas, BBQ, plentiful sunbeds and of course the magnificent pool.

The sea view from the villa was exceptional. Best we've ever had and we have stayed in many villas in Son Bou over the last ten years!

Loved the views and size of the villa and pool. The villa and pool were so clean. The resort was family orientated and everything was within walking distance.

The accomodation worked well for us as we had 2 grandchildren with us and the bedroom accommodation could be used 'separately'. The views were nice and it was convenient for town.
Fri 17 Jun 2016
The villa was lovely, huge and homely. Views spectacular from everywhere. A good selection of shops and restaurants. The bakery by the office is great for meals as well as bread and pastries. All in all we would come again.

The villa has a lovely large pool and beautiful terraces and balconies with a view over the whole of Son Bou bay. This villa has the bedrooms downstairs and the living area and kitchen upstairs. You will never get a better view whilst washing your dishes. However, the one downside is that to get this view you have quite a climb up a steep hill and a lot of steps to get to the villa and in the heat of the day it can be quite a struggle. We hired a car to overcome this. Son Bou itself is a lovely small resort with approx 20 bars/restaurants, a couple of small supermarkets, a fantastic beach and 3 beach bars. A great villa and resort for a lovely peaceful family holiday.

The villa was lovely, huge and homely. Views spectacular from everywhere. The resort was a fair walk because of the hill. Found it best down the road rather than the steps. A good selection of shops and restaurants. The bakery by the office is great for meals as well as bread and pastries. All in all we would come again.

The villa was really good, everything we needed for eight of us, and the air con worked really well. This is the third time we have stayed in Son Bou and it has everything for you to enjoy a good family holiday.

I just wanted to write and let you know what an absolutely fantastic time we had in Son Bou (Villa Bella Vista - July 10th-17th); Largely down to the brilliant service from yourselves and the lovely people in the office in the resort. We were able to get in our villa almost immediately. They sent us off to do our shopping and when we got back they ferried us, the shopping and our luggage up to the Villa.The villa was outstanding. Added bonus;were the lovely bathrooms that appear to have been updated since the online pictures were taken. The transfers from airport to villa and back were very smooth.Everything that I had requested as add ons were provided. I was a bit nervous about booking a villa, having always done 'package' holidays, but you made it so easy. Thank you so much to you and your colleagues.Look forward to coming back in the future.

Rated Excellent Loved the villa. Beautiful views. Very quiet in October. Not a villa for those with mobility problems due to number of steps. Photos don't do the villa justice. Bathrooms upgraded but old photos on website still.

Rated Excellent; Excellent villa in a very central position .
Tue 01 Oct 2013
Rated Excellent. Lovely accommodation with wonderful views down to the beach and as far as Majorca on a clear day. In a quiet position but only a brisk walk from the resort centre.

I'd rate my overall experience for this villa as Excellent Villa Bella Vista was absolutely stunning, it was everything we hoped when we viewed it on the website. The pool was fantastic though could have done with some heating to take the edge off on the cooler days. The rooms are huge and the overall standard was first class. The staff at the office were very helpful and friendly and even though we arrived a little early were happy to give us the key to get things unpacked and the kids settled. The area has stunning scenery and is a perfect base for exploring the whole island. We booked via Groupon which made a villa available that would normally have been beyond our means, I hope Solmar do the same deal again next year for discounted stays before the season opens.

Just wanted to say what a lovely holiday myself and family had. Everything went so smoothly and everyone we met along the way ( office where the keys were held ) were so helpful. The Villa was absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. It is the 1st time I have done a Villa holiday and I cant wait to do it again .Thanks very much.
Fri 11 Jun 2010
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. We loved the villa, it suited everyone, plenty of room and good facilities. The pool was fabulous and was a massive hit, especially with the children. The views were beautiful, so all round we were very very happy. Son Bou too was lovely. We liked the fact it was quiet but had plenty to do if you wished. So to sum up we had a fantastic family holiday and are still enjoying the lovely memeories we all have.

Anonymous - Rated Excellent. We had a wonderful week at this Villa which is in a perfect location in Son Bou and has amazing views of the sea. It was a spacious and well equipped villa. I travelled in a family group of 9 with ages ranging from 3-60 and we found the villa ideal.
