Cristine Bedfor

Menorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

A beautiful house in a unique location in the middle of the city of Mahón in Menorca. From the rooms of the hotel, guests have a view of the houses and roofs of Mahón, the church of Carmen and Santa María or the pretty garden with its own fountain and pool, a huge dragon tree, lemon and orange trees.

Cristine Bedfor stands for peace, water and beauty and lives this holistically - on the way through the lobby, the common living room and the rooms to the outside area with inner courtyard and garden. Cristine Bedfor is the owner and creator of the hotel; Above all, however, she is a loving hostess and friend of the staff: inside and also of the guests. She likes to give tips for the island and reports on her intention for this dreamlike place, which she has transformed into a familiar and quiet oasis. Cristine has integrated the regional culture into the accommodation, so that the authentic Mahón with its magical surroundings can be felt. While walking around Mahón in 2019, she captured Calle de la Infanta and fell in love with the buildings. She couldn't resist and bought the house.

The interior design makes the hotel more than just a place to sleep. The mix of textiles, fabrics and colors is stylish and all rooms are individually designed. Each room has its own essence. They are decorated with antique pieces, paintings and fabrics belonging to the Cristine Bedfor universe.

ArchitectureDuring the renovation, great importance was attached to preserving the original elements of the building. Mares, the typical stone from Mahón, was mainly used indoors and outdoors. The renovation was carried out with local companies. There are also various recycled or upcycled materials in the house, such as staff uniforms, second-hand antiques in the rooms and recycled carpets.

FoodThe menu is made from 100% local produce sourced from nearby suppliers. Cristine's motto is "dream global, eat local". A zero-waste approach is pursued in the restaurant. Leftovers are recycled or fed to animals. Various vegetarian dishes are served and the kitchen is happy to take food intolerances into account.

The employees are locals who live and work on the island. Sharing experiences and knowledge is very much appreciated. That is why the hostess passes on her knowledge to the employees, but also likes to learn from them and offers regular further training. The Menorca Preservation Fund and the Cristine Bedfor have signed a partnership agreement that provides the foundation with substantial funding to support projects related to local Menorca products. The common goal is to stimulate the consumption of local products as a cultural core element of the maintenance and promotion of the economic sector through responsible production with a longer-term vision, while at the same time regenerating and maintaining the island and the health of the country.

A brand-new sustainably minded project, launched in Menorca’s Mahón earlier this year, Cristine Bedfor is the eponymous brainchild of its founder who enlisted the help of good friends to bring her dream to life. The result is a stunning 21-room boutique hotel, designed with an eye on the future by Lorenzo Castillo, featuring local, sustainable food by Menorcan Ses Forquilles, and a magnificent 6,500-square foot garden created by local landscape gardener Álvaro de la Rosa.
