Menorca is known above all as a sun and beach tourism destination, but there is also a very good offer of rural tourism. Best of all, the rural hotels of Menorca allow you to enjoy the advantages of this tourism and also give you the possibility to enjoy the best beaches of Menorca.
Menorca’s rural tourism offer is divided into two types of accommodation: rural houses and rural hotels.
Rural hotels are hotels located in a rural setting, away from the towns of population, and usually have a special feeling in terms of the architecture of the hotel.
The cottages are similar to rural hotels and are also located in a rural setting, but are usually run by a family that can reside in the same house. Country houses usually offer rooms for rent while some hotels may offer rooms as well as apartments.
