Vacation rentals in Menorca allow you to experience this popular Spanish island for less then the cost of a hotel room. Although renting a villa or apartment will save you money, keep in mind that in general, the cost increases as you rent closer to the sea. You’ll also have a lot more personal space and can save further by preparing meals in your own kitchen, when you rent a vacation home. And it’s not hard to see why Menorca has become so popular with tourists from all over the world. Most people go for the beautiful beaches and almost perfect weather, although the small island also boasts historic towns and villages, spectacular mountain scenery and several important archaeological sites. The island has also been recognized for its efforts in conservation and responsible tourism, and was declared a natural biosphere in 1993.
