Mare e Terra in Menorca,
an immersive collection

Laurent Morel-Ruymen fell under the spell of Menorca

It was while sailing in the heart of the Balearic Islands that the founder of Mare e Terra fell under the spell of Menorca. The island, which offers itself to the elements, has many assets: coves licked by turquoise waters, harbours and ancient forts, horses and men, it offers a preserved nature and retains its agricultural tradition: this "World Biosphere Reserve" (classified by UNESCO) is the cradle of a plural project, both totally unique and intensely immersive.

His ambition is to showcase the then little-known Balearic island, gradually developing a very special collection of exclusive experiences and timeless, eclectic venues. Ten years later, he is one of those passionate artisans who have put Menorca on the map for discerning travellers.

Through Mare e Terra, we develop projects that seek to reveal the beauty of Menorca

"Through Minorque, we develop projects that seek to reveal the beauty of Menorca, just like our collection of experiential hotels that rehabilitate listed sites. In this unique place, our guests can wake up in a former bishop's palace, sail on a yacht and discover wild coves, enjoy a massage in the middle of a pine forest and soak up Menorcan flora, party and sleep in a villa with a view. I like to create an imaginary place to enhance it by working on the space, the materials or the olfactory signature... everything that contributes to the experience."

Laurent Morel-Ruymen,
founder and president of Mare e Terra.

    Menorca, a lush garden, at horse's pace and at the whim of the wind. A garden island prized by lovers of authenticity.



    An urban refuge in the heart of Ciutadella's historic centre, Faustino Gran is a collection of four listed palaces, where simplicity meets elegance. A new inner Eden, resurrected under the Minorcan sun.

    Transformed into refined, experiential spaces, these historic palaces offer a unique immersion into the heart of Menorcan life. The Faustino restaurant is set in a luxuriant patio planted with Mediterranean trees and century-old olive groves.

    A bucolic interlude just ten minutes from Ciutadella: join us at Casa de Pau, a green and idyllic retreat hidden among fifteen hectares of maritime pines, with exclusive access to the Ses Fontanelles cove.


    Cap Menorca, the horizon as far as the eye can see

    The Cami de Cavalls coastal path links wild coves and white sandy beaches in the heart of pine and olive groves of rare beauty. Fields of lavender and pine trees dancing in the wind, the sea on the horizon and white stone glistening on all sides: a timeless picture.

    Cap Menorca

    The horizon as far as the eye can see

    An enchanting place. A breathtaking view of the sea. A unique Mediterranean experience.

    In the heart of a listed finca with a military past, this exceptional hotel offers fifteen suites of pure elegance, discreetly scattered around a lush Eden. Set between cliffs and Mediterranean vegetation, they are a perfect symbiosis with their surroundings.

    Set in the heart of vast gardens with private pools, these confidential suites offer services worthy of a palace. Renovated in a luminous, outward-looking style, they offer an environment in which to return to oneself.


    Biniatram, ode to minorcan horse

    In Ciutadella, the past lights up the cream-coloured stone of the cobbled streets. Centuries of history waiting to be revealed.



    In a former 18th-century finca, Finca Biniatram welcomes you to its refined rooms and suites, like a refuge after long rides.

    A three-hundred-hectare jewel case close to the sea, where vineyards, olive groves and forests follow one another. An intimate getaway at the heart of a horse lover's minority dream, the ultimate tribute to the island's equestrian culture.

    Finca Biniatram has direct access to the Cami de Cavalls for superb hiking. On your return, you can savour the local cuisine on large white-tablecloth tables in the heart of the gardens, in a retreat from the world and time.


    Lolo's, the beating heart of Menorcan nightlife



    A stately annex of the count's palace, three tree-lined terraces overlook the port of Ciutadella. Everyone loves to meet up in this summer party spot, with its tasty Italian cuisine and open-air nightlife. Intensely Mediterranean, the bright decor invites you to relax in a sunny atmosphere.

    As night falls, Lolo's gets in tune with Ciutadella's nightlife and transforms into a glittering nightclub.
