2022 promises to be a very special year for our little paradise. We tell you why.
The taste of Menorca, in the world spotlight
At Faustino Gran we have long valued the flavor of the island. That is why we put all the love and taste in the gastronomic part of our project. Either through the dishes of the Can Faustino restaurant, the breakfasts in the garden or the evenings tasting the vegetarian proposals at the Country Club, made with produce from our own garden.
What for us is a fundamental pillar of the Menorcan experience, next year will be a milestone in the island's history. Menorca has been declared European Gastronomic Region 2022, a title that recognizes Menorcan cuisine as a unique asset, with an evident influence on the environment, well-being and health. The foundations of Mediterranean cuisine are mixed with culinary tradition, but also with a new way of preparing, presenting and rediscovering unique flavors, which have been preserved thanks to the inheritance that survives generations.
From Faustino Gran we join this declaration of a European Gastronomic Region, offering balanced dishes, cooked with care and fresh, local products.
We say goodbye to the 2021 season very grateful for the trust that our clients have placed in us once again.
And we close the doors to focus on expanding the Can Faustino experience.
The infatuation we feel for Menorca at Can Faustino is not limited to the landscape.
Nor to the people and the customs and traditions, of which our buildings are impregnated. Menorcans know that the most direct way to reach the heart is through the stomach. That is why they have carefully cared for their fields and sea, and all the food that they extract from them. Quality products , which mature in the sun, graze freely, chosen with care and care. And that come directly from trusted farms to our kitchen. For this reason, we want to discover one of the greatest pleasures that we offer at Can Faustino: its gastronomy.
Since 2019, Menorca has been awarded the Starlight destination and reserve distinction
What does this term mean? Basically, that the island has been considered as one of the best places in the world for observing the celestial vault. The low light pollution and the clarity of the environment make the Menorcan night sky the best opportunity to discover the cosmos with the naked eye. Although this distinction, awarded by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) through the Starlight Foundation, is not exclusive in Spain, it is the only one that has been given in the Balearic Islands.
Would you like to experience the authentic Menorca in the hands of those who know it best?
At Can Faustino we have the only concierge service on the island, offered by our colleagues Marc and Ignacio. Let yourself be guided by his hand through the pure Mediterranean.
This 2021 the flags of the party will wave to commemorate past years. San Juan festival has been postponed until 2022.
June is a special month in Ciutadella. The colors change as the day lengthens, and the summer heat begins to be noticeable between the “marés” walls. In the city, there is a calm that anticipates what is to come. What for any "ciutadellenc" is the most special date of the year. The feast of San Juan, which is celebrated mainly on 23 and 24, paralyzes any activity that has nothing to do with this ancestral tradition with more than six centuries of history.
The evening breeze caressing your skin as you hold a glass of local wine aboard Heloise. Can you imagine it?
The Can Faustino experience brings together the two elements that characterize Menorca: the land and the sea. While the land is represented by outings to nature, especially in our Country Club, the sea is an incitement to freedom. To the independence of movements accompanied by the gentle rocking of the waves. That is why we put at your disposal a magnificent boat, Heloise, with which you can discover the Menorcan landscape from the water. Turn the perspective 180 degrees and admire the geological formations that define the coast of Menorca.
To the main historic building of Can Faustino, two more palaces are added this season in the center of Ciutadella
The first Relais & Châteaux in Menorca has expanded its facilities with the incorporation of the Cal Bisbe and Can Llorenç palaces, two architectural gems that are part of the Episcopal Palace, which have been restored and perfectly integrated into the hotel, adding 20 additional rooms.
Can Faustino offers a pure luxury experience in the historic center of Ciutadella allowing travelers to immerse themselves in the charms of the most authentic and wild island of the Balearic Islands through excursions to its Country Club, private boat tours, and many other activities and services offered by the hotel
