Our travel to Menorca was marked by our memorable stay at Rifugio Azul located on the cutest, narrow street right in the heart of Ciutadella.
Thankfully to the owner, Marta, we felt like at home and had a great opportunity to experience the real island life in a typical Menorquin house.

    Menorca is truly a beautiful place; I first heard of this when I worked as a marketing assistant for Travel Republic. Lovely beaches and natural sceneries. And the rustic town is just wow; the “traditional” look is lovingly preserved.
