The small but very charming Casa Venecia in the port of Mahon was the venue for this 10th wedding anniversary on the island of Menorca.
The house has recently opened as a bar. It is a small but charming place which is surrounded by water. The ground floor has glass panels so you really get a sense of being surrounded on all sides by the port. You access the Casa Venecia either by road to the north of Mahon. The turn off for the event space is just before Cala Llonga. You can also book a water taxi to take you across. It would be a better way to enjoy the journey although the drive is also a pleasure. Seeing Mahon and Es Castell from across the water, particularly at sunset is quite spectacular.
During the summer months, the sun drops behind Monte Toro to the west of Mahon. The space has two small areas. The upper level was used as the dining area which seated fourteen people. The ground floor was used as the chill out area after the diners had finished eating. On the port side there are jetties where deck chairs can placed to watch the boats return after a day on the water.
An unusual venue full of character. If you ‘re having a celebration, wedding or dinner party with around twenty or fewer guests then take a look at this space.
