Elevated above the stunning cove of Es Canutells, Finca Mahon is a traditional Menorcan home in the island’s southeast. Set across 64 hectares, it offers an outdoor pool and private beach acc
Our guests describe the hotel’s atmosphere as peaceful, almost like being at home. And they appreciate coming back here.
How would you describe Ses Sucreres in a nutshell?
Ses Sucreres is a small boutique hotel in Ferreries on the island of Menorca. It is a personal, intimate project of my husband and I, which we started almost 10 years ago. It was our intention to create something inspired by our own tastes but also influenced by our lives in Menorca. It’s very personal and an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary design elements.
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 the island, 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.
Please tell us about the history and renovation of the hotel.
I fell in love with the house one day on holiday here in Menorca. There was something special about it. I realized how perfect it would be for a small hotel. We decided to buy it and then took seven months to renovate the manor and turn it into a boutique hotel. During the entire process everything seemed to just flow so that we were able to open up in August of 2010.
Unfortunately we don’t know too much about the history of the house. My husband’s father remembers two ladies living here with a shop where he used to buy sweets. The house was known as Ca Ses Sucreres and we decided to keep the name as it holds the collective memory of that generation.
In Catalan or Menorcan sugar also means sweet. The name Ses Sucreres therefore could mean ‘The Sweet Ladies’.
What has been the biggest reward for you since opening the hotels?
The biggest reward running these two 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.
The interior design of Ses Sucreres is eclectic, somewhat vintage but not traditional as we have restored many old pieces. The rooms’ design is simplistic and in spite of being eclectic, we tried to find an connection between everything.
Our holiday guests describe the hotel’s atmosphere as peaceful, almost like being at home. They appreciate coming back here, since the village of Ferreries is not a traditional tourist village but much more quiet.
Ses Sucreres has six rooms in total of which three are double rooms and the other three are bigger, almost like suites.
We try to provide a comfortable place to relax with nice, comfortable beds. The house is cozy in both summer and winter, no matter the weather.
Everywhere in the hotel there is a lot of natural light and the amenities we provide are all high quality products like natural soaps and linens.
The two Double Rooms at Ses Sucreres each measure around 25 sqm and look out over the pedestrian street of Ses Monges or Sant Joan. They feature a large 160 x 200 cm size double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower (one of them has a bath). They have a ceiling fan, heating and towel radiator. There is no television.
The three Suites at Ses Sucreres each measure around 35 sqm and look out over the pedestrian street of Ses Monges or Sant Joan. They feature a large 180 x 200 cm size double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower. They have a ceiling fan, heating and towel radiator. There is no television.
The Superior Double Room at Ses Sucreres measures around 25 sqm and looks out over the pedestrian street of Ses Monges or Sant Joan. It features a large 160 x 200 cm size double bed and en-suite bathroom with bathtub. It has a ceiling fan, heating and towel radiator. There is no television.
At Ses Sucreres, breakfast is included and our guests can enjoy our honesty bar where they can drink something fresh at any time during the day. We do not have a restaurant, but if our guests want to have dinner, they can enjoy it out on the white and green patio.
There are many nice beaches in the north. Pregonda is a very long beach with the sand leading up to the dunes and green fields. It’s not the easiest beach to get to as you have to hike to it, but once you get there you’ll see that it is absolutely worth it.
In the west of Menorca is Cala Macarelleta, an absolutely idyllic cove with fine sand, calm water and sheltering hills. During the summer this beach is full of people but as the water is warm enough to swim in year-round, you should come here in the spring or autumn.
Most of our holiday guests don’t plan their day until right before leaving the hotel. We can recommend good places for lunch and markets to visit. After a nice day out they often stop back here for a drink and then head out for a late dinner at one of the restaurants of the island.
I would recommend taking time to explore Minorca. There are beautiful places for watching sunsets. Cova d’en Xoroi is a nightclub but is also open during the day and a very special place to visit.
Discovering the island on foot and by boat is probably the best thing to do. Taking a kayak is also a possibility and can be quite fun to do.
Ses Sucreres is in the village of Ferreries, located in the center of the island of Menorca, Spain. Mahon, the largest city of the island with about 30,000 residents is only 30 mins away from the hotel. We are located pretty centrally and therefore close to most places on the island. All the beaches are very nice and there it’s a great place to go for long walks.
Our village is not the most charming on the island, but the residents are what make it so nice. It’s a quiet place that is not as crowded as other villages in the summer. We love it for its simple and humble atmosphere.
The best time to visit Menorca is in the spring when it’s sunny and the island is green, quiet and not crowded. You can walk everywhere and if you don’t mind fresh water, you can even go swimming. In my opinion April, May and beginning of June are the best times to visit.
