I have been thinking for a long time that nobody ever mentions the little development at Cala Morell way up on the westerly part of the North coast as somewhere for visitors to consider staying. It seems to get ignored because as it is so small and has no hotels it doesn't feature in package tour brochures but there may be TA members out there who are considering going to the island on a private rental who would be interested to know other TA members' opinion of the place.
Because it is so isolated Cala Morell is definitely not somewhere to stay without a hire car ( and is a complete no no if you want lots of bars and nightlife on your doorstep) but I found some stunning ( and often expensive) villas in the area when doing a bit of internet browsing last night and wanted to make anyone who has missed it aware of its existence. I have only gone there during the day to explore the prehistoric cave dwellings and take in the scenery but have always thought that it looked so peaceful and pretty ( see pics on http://www.google.co.uk/images?rlz=1T4SMSN_enGB367GB367&q=cala+morell+menorca&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&sa=X&ei=RzlmTb7fKYeXhQfAmMjaDQ&ved=0CDUQsAQ&biw=1345&bih=507 and http://www.ulookubook.com/cala-morell ).
Although properties in Cala Morell have the name of the nearest municipal district (Cuitadella) in their postal address, the place could not be more different from the type of thing to be found in the main resorts in the areas closer to Cuitadella itself. Does anyone have experience of staying there, recommendations of villas/apartments etc to give to provide some information on this forum for people who want to find an "away from it all" location ? Has anyone eaten at any of the limited number of restaurants in the area for example?
Magicbeer08 - As Cuitadella and the west of the island is your area of DE expertise, can you provide us with some information on places in or around Cala Morell to stay or visit? Are there any rural hotels in that area that you know of that are good for non residents to dine in for example ?
