Mallorca is for the honeymooners; Ibiza for the sybarites; Formentera, latterly, for the low-maintenance gypset. But lest Menorca be forgotten – and with its empty calas, captivating Georgian harbour at Mahón and longstanding leanings toward sustainable tourism practices, it shouldn’t (and in fact, by a small but significant coterie of very high-end second-homeowners, it hasn’t been) – new online for 2018 is a stunner of a property from genius villa-finder Cédric Reversade (uniquepropertiesandevents.com; from £15,000 a week): a seven-bedroom cottage, formerly part of a olive farm complex, set in bucolic countryside but with views to the Med. Whitewashed barrel-vaulted ceilings, original cotto floors, gloriously wabi-sabi terraces climbing with jasmine, and a sunken local-stone pool make for a perfect low-key stay on the lowest-key of the Balearics.
