Insider tips for wonderful time in the surroundings of your new house

Anyone who has chosen the island and wants to learn about the environment of his new apartment or house, our real estate agents want to provide real insider information that is often not accessible to tourists; Things that you know only after living on the island for a while. Things worth knowing.

1.) As the owner of a property in Menorca you should try Ensaïmadas

Pastry specialties from various countries such as the Donut or Cronut (a mixture of donut and croissant) have spread after its invention in no time across many countries. If you have not heard of Cronuts, it's probably because it has not gotten a foothold in Western countries. In Menorca, this delicious pastry awaits and has not yet spread beyond the island's borders. We are talking about our insider tip - Ensaïmadas. This substantial yeast dough particle is filled with pumpkin jam and covered with a thick layer of powdered sugar. Do it like the locals and enjoy cozy hours in your property with the sweet pastries in combination with a coffee or chocolate drink.

2.) Have your shoes made to size!

At S'Avarca, a small garage shop in the port of Mahón, you can choose from a variety of models, colors and straps to tailor your very own avarcas. The waiting time for the production of your individual shoe is between 3 hours and three days. Avarcas are flat and typical Menorcan fishing shoes made of leather. You can often find these types of shoes on the shelves of international fine department stores. The difference, however, is that the prices there are usually much higher and the shoes are not made-to-size - moreover, in most cases they are not original Avercas, but imitations.

3.) Expect pure nature in the surroundings of your house!

Do you place increased value on a natural environment? That's when you should also opt for the purchase of a property in Menorca. Menorca was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1993, as the island was able to maintain the balance between economic progress, the use of resources and the preservation of the heritage of the landscape. As a result, you can look forward to numerous nature reserves in the vicinity of your apartment or house, which are an integral part of the island. Here you can experience untouched nature in many places, without the intervention of humans. This also applies to beaches and beach areas. Look forward to the most natural landscapes you may have ever seen!
