“Beautiful and quite space to relax”
Reviewed 15 August 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a fantastic trip to Magister Gardens. Lots of different spaces to relax and enjoy the garden space and pool. Our children loved the lawns and fruit trees and swimming pool. The adults loved the discrete location, beautiful garden, and ability to open up the kitchen and lounge out to the outside.
The location was fantastic and the hosts were helpful with recommendations.

“Magister Gardens, a slice of heaven inside and out!”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Magister Gardens is a slice of heaven inside, and out. We are a family of six from across three generations who stayed at Magister for 12 days in July 2017.
The house itself is tastefully and thoughtfully renovated. It is extremely livable and discretely elegant.

The stone walls and floors keep the house cool and the pool keeps the guests amused and refreshed. The gardens themselves are jaw droppingly beautiful, alive, peaceful, day and night. As our twelve year-old daughter remarked, you can explore the island if you want, but you do not feel compelled to go out, because it is so enchanting and comfortable “at home”.

We shopped in the nearby town, cooked lovely meals, read novels, watched the birds and butterflies circle the gardens, laughed under the shooting stars, admired the plants, observed the roving tortoises and splashed in the pool. The beds were comfortable and we slept very deeply. In sum, we wanted for nothing and marveled at everything.

If you do choose to adventure outside of the Magister haven, there are stunning beaches with turquoise waters, bike excursions, country rambling, shoe and cheese shopping, mouth watering local restaurants and gorgeous island drives all at a ten minute drive from the house.

Finally by staying in Alaior, an authentic town, you experience the true Menorca. Menorca itself is a secret: a blissful and relatively undeveloped island.

Most importantly, Nick the visionary and owner of Magister Gardens is a conscientious, kind, prompt host who truly cares about his guests and his property.

We were very fortunate to stay at Magister Gardens. Thank you Nick!

“Heavenly”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We travel a lot and we had one of our best holidays ever at the magical Magister Gardens.
If you want to totally spoil yourself and TOTALLY relax we cannot recommend it highly enough.

First there is the house with it’s tasteful, neutral decoration, amazingly comfortable beds, great well stocked kitchen and plentiful bathrooms - the showers have good water pressure!

Then the incredible landscaped garden.Just beautiful. The planting is just perfect.
It is unbelievably peaceful. It feels completely secluded. We hardly heard another soul. The only thing you do hear is the chirping of the many birds. It is a wildlife haven. Sitting having breakfast outside and listening to the birds and bees, watching butterflies dancing on the grass and even being visited by the occasional native tortoise is utter heaven.

There are many spots for sunbathing - or sunshading - reading and even browsing on the decent speed wifi.
And the pool built into an old water cistern is just inspired and makes for a refreshing dip.

The property is perfectly situated to explore the island (although I have to say we hardly ever left the house it is so beautiful).

The pretty Alaior town is minutes away by foot . Perfect to wander into the square and have a cold beer.

The supermarkets are very close in the car.

Nick always responded immediately to any requests. He was really helpful about where to eat, shop etc.

We are planning when we can return.

“Beautifully renovated Minorcan Estate”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Despite the high season, the property is private and peaceful, with everything one could wish for in one place. Located perfectly in the center of the island, all attractions and nature are a short drive away. Would recommend it to everyone, really loved staying there, a beautiful estate.
