Experience the MAGIC of Christmas and New Year in Menorca and add a property to your wish list.
Dreaming of mild temperatures at Christmas and celebrating New Year the Menorcan way, in contrast to the spring and summer holidays you know so well on all the Balearic Islands. Finally decided to invest in a home in beautiful Minorca and buy a Mediteranean villa of your own. Winter months on the island are a well kept secret!

There are many Christmas traditions throughout the Balearic islands and on Menorca our real estate agents recommend that if you get the chance go and see ‘Els Pastorells’ an especially traditional play that is Christmas pure, which is performed in several Menorcan villages across the islands. Also well worth a visit are the fabulous nativity scenes on display in the capital Mahón but also in many other towns and villages, many are handcrafted and highly elaborate.

If you prefer a relaxing evening at home with those you love on New Year's Eve instead of a big party somewhere, then Menorca is definitely the place for you. Naturally celebrations take place in the capitals of Mahón and Ciutadella, but they are very low key in comparison to London, Paris or Berlin or other large cities. On the island parties tend to be more personal, dinner and drinks with family and friends at home and then off to the main square to see the change of the year in. The tradition thought to bring luck is to eat a total of 12 grapes, one with each chime of the midnight hour.
