Cristina and Daniel have a 40 years old link to the island. Childhood, summers, time living or visiting… It was not difficult for these two friends to decide on the “preserved jewel” of the Mediterranean to undertake their first project together. Cristine Bedfor Guest Houses, in the centre of Maó, is a bet on local products, and to offer its guests a stay connected to the territory, to its culture, to its history and cuisine.
From the cuisine, by the hand of Ses Forquilles and with local and seasonal produce, to its proposed activities, the project seeks to involve visitors in the life and environment of the island all year long. This unique hostal is the other half of an idea, a historical building recovered maintaining its architectural essence that connects it to the boutique hotel through a spectacular garden. Each of its cosy rooms was designed to be unique.
The project includes an ambitious waste management plant, does not use plastic products and integrates reuse and recycling of materials in their practices: restored tableware and furniture, or carpets and clothes from recycled materials. A 25,000-litre cistern feeds the garden, and they have joined the Menorca Preservation Fund to endorse “Dream Global, Eat Local” to promote local product.
