There are a few supermarkets in Cala en Porter but,just remember they are a bit more expensive than the big ones in town. :grin:

Thank you Lady Rose. Would it be worth a taxi fare or day car hire to get a bigger shop then in town?. There are 9 people to shop for. We will eat out too but family bbqs will be the main order of this quick week away.

The largest supermarket, Spar, certainly does deliveries. If I don't have a car(which isn't often) I tend to do my first big shop at the Spar and have it delivered then use the others to pick up odds and ends when passing.

Just for the shopping, no. But if you make it a full day out then maybe so.

The Spar and the Village Store always had what I needed and both deliver.

When are you arriving? If it's soon I would suggest a day in Mahon and go to one of the big supermarkets there eg Eroski, Hiper Climent or Binipreu and do a big shop and get it delivered. Remember to take the address of your villa with you!! Then just pick up the odd daily needs locally. There is a Lidl in Mahon, but don't think it delivers. Or you could go into Mahon by bus, shop and then the shoppers take a taxi back to Cala en Porter with the shopping. Enjoy your stay.

What about using an online shopping service, ordering from you home either here or in Menorca and getting it delivered to your property when suits you. I haven't tried it so couldn't comment on price etc but I'm sure someone will have used it and could advise. I'm sure there is one but I can't remember the name - Google it and see :cool:

Sounds good mad, and here is a link for online shopping. The site looks perfectly safe, but I don't really know if it is still operative.

If you click onto CONTACT it details an email address to contact firstly. :finga:

There is also one on Facebook called Menorca online shop. I'm not sure if it's the same one but you could message them?
