When my two girlfriends and I booked a stay here, located in the absolute paradise of a Unesco Biosphere reserve, we were certainly not prepared to be as astonished as we were by the house, pool or terraces with breathtaking views of the S'Albufera d'Es Grau Natural Park. Casita Tierra Nueva can best be described as a bohemian chic and fully equipped home from home in the most awe-inspiring location. This is certainly not your average characterless and soulless holiday rental and it is notable that this is Trish's home in the off season. The love and attention to detail that she has paid to the property to make sure her guests have the most wonderful and stress free stay really has to be commended. Having breakfast on the front terrace whilst spotting wild peacocks, eagles and cows in the rolling green fields right in front of you or catching a dreamlike sunset at dinner was worth the stay alone. Preparing meals in the most equipped kitchen a holiday rental has ever seen was a pleasure in itself! Our afternoons were spent lazing around the charming pool on sun loungers and day beds. You have total privacy here with no close neighbours. It is SO quiet. We all said we had the best sleep ever and were totally refreshed for the next day. Being our first visit to Menorca, we reluctantly dragged ourselves away to the capital of Mahón (10 mins away in car) and were again surprised to find a buzzing metropolitan with a plethora of boutiques, bars, restaurants, adorable squares with cafes filled with very friendly locals and tourists alike. It was such a pleasure to stay at Casita Tierra Nueva and we are already planning our return for next year!
This was my first time to stay on the Island and this location is stunning. The property is nestled among a beautiful wildlife reserve and this is the perfect place from which to explore the reserves’ many trails and hikes and the Island Itself. The home is light and elegantly decorated in a minimalist style with comfort and ease of days front and center. From fine linen on the beds to the massive balcony and well appointed kitchen the house has everything. We enjoyed both days by the private pool and various excursions exploring the island and its beaches by car. The property is completely private and is not overlooked which I love and allowed me to deeply relax. We slept, breathed and returned home feeling amazing. Thanks Trish who is a great communicator and understands the importance of the intangibles for holiday guests. I would absolutely return here to the island and this home from home.

Dear Laura and Craig aw thanks for your beautiful review! im so happy you enjoyed it here so much! thanks for taking the time to share your experience and of course you are more than welcome to come back again anytime! love trish
What can I say. Alot actually. The journey from the small, relaxed, calm, friendly and easy to navigate airport, felt like a journey onto a vast film set. Èpico (epic) in scale and style, at times ancient and historical, at times futuristic, with touches of Tolkien, J.K. Rowling, Spielberg, Walt Whitman, to name but a few. A film set requires a director. We, my wife and I looked around for one. We stood on the veranda of Casita Tierra Nueva (New Earth Cottage) waiting for someone to shout action. It took a few moments to realise that we were the directors. This place is magical. There is no rush here. Except for the warm, grounding, gentle rush of positive, sparkling energy. Even if you wanted to rush, you couldn't, it's impossible. The island of Menorca won't let you. The house itself, and I use the word it-self purposefully, because New Earth Cottage has it's own unique personality. This personality has been created by the wonderful host, Trish, and whatever your tastes are, everything feels like it has been created for you. That was our experience. Everything works. The swimming pool is glorious with a choice of sun or shade in which to relax after a swim, and everywhere you look, both inside and out, pleases the senses. Eases the senses. Every part of the house has a relaxed feel to it, but the veranda and the view from it are spectacular. We ate all meals out there and stayed long after we finished eating. The bedrooms on the lower level were cool, calm and comfortable. Mahòn, a nearby town is bursting with style and class with an abundance of cafès and restaurants serving up a wide variety of culinary dishes. The kind of place you expect to see Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant walking by, hand in hand, in love. The local beach, cafès and restaurants are very accessible, small, quiet and welcoming. To sum it up, Casita Tierra Nueva, is a little piece of paradise where nature keeps you company, with many beautiful walk literally on your doorstep. Menorca has been a protected Biosphere Reserve since 1993, thanks to the great variety of habits it comprises. Casita Tierra Nueva is in the heart of the reserve. Trish, the host has managed to create a space that radiates creative beauty, grace and comfort. We cannot wait to return to the embrace of the beautiful sounds and smells of nature and the pure comfort of this eclectic home. Wonderful Memories made.
