A small boutique hotel only a short drive away from the beautiful beaches of the island of Menorca, Ses Sucreres has six individually furnished bedrooms with an eclectic and intimate atmosphere.
How would you describe Petit Maó in a nutshell?
Petit Maó is a small boutique hotel in an 18th century manor house in Mahon, the capital city of Menorca, Spain. It resembles the story of friendship; my husband and I created this hotel together with two friends of ours. Urban in style and location, Petit Maó stands for a new concept of hospitality.
What was your inspiration to open two small boutique hotels on Menorca?
We prefer staying in small hotels when traveling, as it’s a much better model than big hotels. There are many people like us who are looking for another, better experience.
We decided to open our own two small boutique hotels on Menorca, even though neither my husband nor I had any professional background in the hotel business. But since I grew up in a family that was in the hotel world in Brittany, France, I understood how everything worked and what needed to be done.
What’s the history of Petit Maó?
Petit Maó is an old charming house. It was built during a very interesting and important period of Menorcan history. At the time when the island was under British rule, Mahon was very rich artistically and intellectually.
What has been the biggest reward for you running Petit Maó and Ses Sucreres?
The biggest reward of running our two boutique hotels is to see people happy and appreciative of the atmosphere we’ve created. They feel the same about the place, just like my husband and I.
