When I looked for hotels in Menorca I wanted typical accommodations, just like the restaurants, that were managed by people from there who could tell me things about the island and curiosities. And that was precisely what I found in Matxani Gran.
Matxani Gran. My hotel in Menorca
It is a large old house style house that is very close to Mahon and accessed from the road by a narrow path. Upon arrival, you will see next to the parking lot the huge red house with that entrance hallway that directly invites you to pass.
In the main building there are two large rooms upstairs, which are connected and share a living room and a family kitchen. At the bottom there are four rooms in the south area and three other rooms in the north area.
Each room has a different rustic and cozy decor. They are very colorful some have the walls of orange or blue color but in no time comes to saturate. The bathroom with tiled walls also has an antique style taps in precious gold color. You will also find all amenities that you need soap, soap …
A place to spend your holidays in Menorca
When you see the common areas you will want to have booked there for a minimum of one week. After the main building, on the left hand side there is a self service bar. In the you can serve what you need, you sign it and at the end of your stay you pay.
On the right hand side there is a semi covered terrace, where breakfast is served in summer. At the bottom there is an area with a fairly large pool, ideal the size of my house in my opinion, and it is a perfect spot for after a day on the road or on the beach to finish relaxing.
A little further on there is a garden that is almost where the farm ends.
Homemade breakfasts with typical menorcan food
The reception is located at the beginning of a giant hall, which was the old bueyera and is also used for breakfasts and dinners. In addition, it is the perfect place to read a book or rest in the heat of the fireplace while the kids entertain themselves in the children’s play area at the end of the room.
Sometimes I read myself and I can not even believe the luck I have, that every time I travel I meet incredible people. In Matxani it was not going to be less, both its workers and their owners are a love of people. When I arrived Lloren welcomed me and apart from explaining things about the house and the area with a map, we were a long time while he told me everything that could be in Menorca.
