What we like about this property

This beautifully restored ancient manor house has all of the quiet sophistication and relaxed refinement that we like. The stunning archeological quarry gardens and historic status of this site have been preserved with great style and thoughtful detail. 

Description

Located just outside of the small town of Alaior towards the interior of Menorca, this carefully restored 19th century manor home was discovered in 2012 by the owners in almost complete disrepair. Designated Grade 1 historic status, the home occupies the site of an ancient stone quarry and was built within its walls. Situated on over two and a half acres of rural terraced landscape (all of which will be opened in subsequent years when restoration progresses), the owners embarked on a painstaking three year restoration of both the structure and gardens and the house has now made it’s official debut in 2015.

The home’s historic status means that all original exterior and interior details needed to be protected and preserved and the redesign has successfully integrated the ancient details and materials and  reinterpreted it as a sophisticated and contemporary residence. The main living area features the classic beam and stone structural characteristics with graceful arches and a lighter and more expansive layout and large glass doors that open out to the gardens. The fully equipped kitchen has been completely modernized but with a rustic country feel and can serve up to ten in the dining area. With four bedrooms and three baths, the house is spacious and can sleep up to eight.

The restoration of the gardens will continue for years to come with traditional Mediterranean orchards, olive groves and a vegetable garden. The unique swimming pool was converted from an ancient stone water tank and features lovely shaded areas for lounging under the pergolas.

This archeologically important home can now be enjoyed and appreciated for it’s historic beauty and many comforts. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES 

High speed wifi, Smart TV with DVD player, stereo audio system with CD player, books and guides. Housekeeping and laundry facilities (includes a light mid-week inside and twice weekly pool cleaning). Additional cleaning staff on request, private chef on request and massage & yoga services on request. Games (volleyball, badminton, beach bats, football, petanque/boules and frisbees). Secure private parking for 2-3 cars.

AROUND

Just a five minute walk to the small interior town of Alaior, which has been happily unspoiled by tourism so far, its central location within the island puts both the northern and southern beaches within close proximity including the idyllic Binigaus and Son Bou each under fifteen minutes by car. The eastern most Balearic island, Menorca is mellower and quieter than it’s boisterous neighboring islands of Ibiza and Mallorca and features the twin seaside towns of Maó and medina-like Ciutadella. A UNESCO declared Biosphere Reserve, the 216 km of coastline and forested interiors including the Parc Natural S’Albufera d’es Grau are some of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.

    Beautiful and tranquil

    Our family spent a lovely week at Magister Gardens. Most days we spent visiting various beaches around the island and afternoons lounging in the garden and jumping in and out of the pool.

    Our kids enjoyed playing tennis and badminton on the green field with the raquets that were at the house. The gardens really were spectacular and we enjoyed them as much as we could.

    The town of Alaior is almost in the centre of the island so not a far drive to get to any of the beaches, towns and restaurants. It was also very handy to be able to get into town and grocery shops so quickly, by either walking or driving. The multiple playgrounds were great too!

    Because there was a touch of rain when we first arrived we actually made a fire indoors, which was charming and lovely.

    There were a few mosquitos and it was very handy to have mosquito nets for the kids, although they didn’t bother the adults.

    Nick and his team were very helpful and always responded to questions and concerns quickly.

    Thanks for a great stay!

    An idyllic hideaway with stunning gardens!

    We had a wonderful stay at Magister Gardens, it’s the perfect place for a family holiday, oodles of space, brilliantly well-equipped and lovely rooms – and the gardens and terraces are just heavenly. Our twin daughters had a ball splashing around in the pool and hunting down wild tortoises in the gardens and we loved whiling away balmy evenings with BBQ’s and alfresco feasts under the stars. Thanks to Nick and his team for being super helpful and thoughtful in helping to ensure our stay was one of unadulterated relaxation.

    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!”

    Beautifully renovated Minorcan Estate. 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.

    Stunning villa set in the most beautiful gardens. Everything about Alaior Gardens is magical. The setting couldn’t be more perfect. As soon as you enter the property it’s like being in your own completely peaceful and private world. The interior of the villa is beautifully designed, spacious and a deliciously cool refuge from the baking sun! It is comprehensively equipped with everything you could possible need and maintained and serviced to the highest standards.

    Alaior Gardens es un lugar con encanto. Parece un tópico pero no lo es. Tras el muro de piedra que rodea la propiedad se puede sentir el paso de la historia. La recuperación del lugar llevada a cabo con sensibilidad y acierto permite conjugar el pasado y el presentre ofreciendo todas las comodidades.
    Perfecto en cuanto a equipamiento y limpieza. Pese a que estuvimos en período invernal pudimos disfrutar del cuidado jardín y explorar el resto de la propiedad que no deja de sorprender.
    El trato del propietario y de la persona local a cargo fueron excelentes, nos ayudaron con los preparativos y nos resolvieron cualquier duda.
    Es un lugar muy recomendable para las personas que quieran estar en el centro de Menorca en un lugar tranquilo, en un entorno maravilloso. Poco recomendable para las personas con movilidad reducida porque el acceso a la vivienda es desde el jardín, descendiendo por unas rústicas escaleras exteriores.
    Conocíamos ya la isla, pero una vez más no nos dejó de sorprender. El benévolo invierno mediterráneo nos permitió disfrutar de unos días de playa con el aliciente de la tranquilidad del mes de diciembre.
    Recomendamos alojarse en Magister Gardens para poder disfrutar de unos días mágicos en Menorca.

    Magister Gardens is a unique house, as beautiful in real life as it is on the website. The house has been carefully designed and yet it is a holiday house that is easy to maintain. The simple and harmonious color scheme, the natural stone and the mediterranean light come together to create a restful and serene atmosphere. What a bliss ! The house is spacious and offers many places to relax, be it in the garden, in the pool area or inside. The gardens still need to be developed but there are many fruit trees, so we were able to make a jar of our own Magister Gardens fig jam… The pool is set in an old cistern, which makes it really special too.
    As for the surroundings, the small town of Alaior is lively and very authentic, many local people gather on the streets in the late afternoon and the cafes are full of joyous crowds having a drink before going home. We loved it. It’s definitely worth driving to the beach rather than staying in a beach complex and miss the experience. As for Menorca, we fell in love with it. Pristine nature, beautiful beaches, no bling. So close to home and yet a real get-away. Thank you for providing such a nice experience! We will be back.

    A very special place to stay. This was our second visit to Alaior, a perfect place to stay to explore all parts of the Island. We have found Alaior to be one of the most unspoilt and friendly Menorcan towns, complete with a wood fired baker’s oven in a traditional bakery, which we stumbled across down a small side street one evening.
    Alaior Gardens is a rather special place to stay. It is newly renovated with great attention to detail and tastefully furnished. All the appliances were new and the kitchen was well equipped. Traditional stone walls and the marble floors kept the inside pleasantly cool.
    The property is very private, yet not secluded. Doors open straight onto the garden and even though some of the planting is not yet established, we found mature cherry, apricot, orange, lemon, pear, almond and pomegranate trees. Spotting the tortoises roaming free in the wild area became a favourite pastime.
    We flew from Exeter, four hours door to door, and would definitely consider booking this property again next year.
