Ah, Menorca! One can never say it too loudly: the most secret and most preserved of the three Balearic Islands is surely on its way to become the most sought-after of them all. One look at the Torre Vella is proof enough. Part of the Fontenille group, managed by Frederic Biousse and Guillaume Faucher, the hotel is checking all the boxes. First of all, it is a multi-centenarian monument that has been freshly renovated with a luxurious interior design. Second of all, local craftsmanship is at the center of the experience with a local cuisine and fully integrated vineyard, vegetable garden and orchard. With view on a field of olive trees and beautiful creeks nearby, you’ll enjoy horse riding or pottery lessons. Torre Vella is among this new generation of hotels that walk into their clients’ shoes and ask: “What do I want to find here that cannot be found anywhere else?” The result is a hybrid experience you can only confuse with staying at that one wealthy friend you don’t have – but you’d sure love to!
