A New Year and a New Web Site for Astbury Formentera

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new web site on Wednesday 19 December 2012:

Ben has been working hard on this project for some time now with a team that includes translators (we are now in 4 languages), web designers, graphic designers and web technologists to ensure a smooth transition from the trusted and valued old version to the exciting, high tech new version.
We hope you like it and would welcome any constructive suggestions if you find any problems as you navigate the sites.

Our programme for Summer 2013 has now been on sale for a month and bookings are excellent.
The response we have had from our existing guests has been remarkable with a high percentage re-booking for next summer before we opened our charts up to new enquiries.

Thank you all for your confidence in us and for the many emails of thanks we have received following your holidays this summer, we really appreciate hearing from you.

2012 was a great year on Formentera, the weather was fantastic, the sea sublime and the atmosphere on the island truly memorable ..... roll on 2013!

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.
The entire Astbury Team look forward to welcoming you to this very special island in the summer of 2013.

Formentera Holidays 2013

We are now well under way with booking our 2013 programme of holidays to Formentera and this blog will be used to keep you in touch with new developments as the season progresses.
We are now well into the Advance Booking Season and we are really busy with bookings, dealing with more re-bookings than ever before.
We are thrilled that all our work at Voga Mari has been so well received and this winter we are continuing with our up-grade and improvements with new exterior lighting, some terraces being improved, garden enhancements, a complete exterior re-paint, new taps and a host of detailed additions and changes which Elaine and Lynda have identified as being needed or that have been requested by our guests. The most significant project is the installation of wi-fi which will be free and accessible in every bungalow.

Our lovely Campanitx Villas in Es Calo will also undergo a major improvement for next summer with a complete renewal of the bathrooms and flooring, Isabel and Pep are very excited to be able to offer this enhancement to their villas to their many friends who return to this special village year after year.

Our Luxury Villa Programme has now developed and we can now offer some of the most beautiful houses on the island for those wishing to experience the ultimate Formentera experience of living in style and luxury with your own private pool.
See our new web site for more details on this and all our properties available next summer.

We look forward to your visit out here during the summer of 2013!

Voga Mari bungalows on Migjorn Beach

We are delighted to announce that Astbury Formentera now have all the superb Voga Mari bungalows located in the best position on the beautiful Migjorn Beach.

Our plan is to up-grade the quality of the bungalows by adding new furniture, both inside and on the terrace, kitchen equipment and lighting as well as adding some nice homely touches.
The bungalows will be kept in their usual high standard of cleanliness and our on-site staff will be there to help with any problems, give advice on things to do and car/bike hire and ensure that your arrival and departure are smooth and trouble-free.

This is an exciting new venture and gives us the ability to have more control over providing you with a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.
