This holiday villa with garden and private pool is build in a typical Mediterranean style and multiple terraces. It consists in 2 floors, both fully equiped to function independently. The communicating door in the entrance hall combines both floors as 1 individual house, this makes it ideal for large families with children or groups of friends.
Both floors have a spacious living room equiped with Flatscreen TV, SAT, DVD, each 2 sofabeds and a dining corner.
The ground floor has 4 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in suite and on the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with bath/shower, bidet and toilet.
The 2 kitchens are equiped with hob, oven, microwave, toaster, washing machine, iron, iron board and all other necessary utilities.
Outside furniture consists of tables and chairs, lounge chairs, barbecue.
Diving School: For sports lovers there´s a wide range of facilities in the immediate surroundings, such as a diving school (FUN & DIVE), tennis courts, and a golf court.
At the beach there´s a choice of many aquatic sports.
4 families stayed for 2 weeks, using both floors. The property is in a quiet position, 5 minutes from Esmerelda beach.
The ground floor is undoubtedly the more modern with open living area, up-to date kitchen and en-suite bedrooms. The upstairs area has a similar modern front room but the 2nd floor kitchen needs renovation. We didn't use it and the washing machine was broken. This didn't matter for us as we only used downstairs for cooking, but for others it could be an issue.
A number of the other reviews mention maintenance issues. This seems to be our only problem too. Upon arrival, a lot of the batteries in air conditioner remote controllers needed replacing by us. One of the controllers was missing. It was replaced very quickly, only to find that the whole A/C unit was broken. This was replaced after a week. All the A/C units work but some are better than others and they are not in every bedroom, which is really a necessity. Although the advert mentions TV/Video/DVD, they are very old, (and the remote batteries were missing!). It was not possible to stream any media sources to them as they were so old. I'd expect this as standard nowadays, ( and in every bedroom too).
One of the plug sockets was hanging loose in the main living area where we had young children running around. The microwave has no revolving dish.
We had issues with the pool clarity, which the maintenance guy from Playa Ferrera tried to fix with some degree of success. However, he said the pool needed draining completely and the filter replacing as it was full of dirt. It was full of dirt because the grassy area by the pool is not grass anymore; it is a dustbowl due to lack of maintenance. This dirt then makes its way into the pool.
The above said; we still had a great time as we had a good group of people and kids with enough space spread out. The outdoor patio and eating area is great for lunchtime/evening barbecues.
Overall, I'd like to give it a 4, but the multiple maintenance issues for me pull it down to a 3.
Villa Blanca was a perfect house for our four families with 6 children age 2-11.
Before arriving, service was excellent and any questions we might had were answered within a day.
Upon arrival we realized that we not only had access to the villa but to many other areas in Cala Ferrar. Something that came in handy when we had a late flight home and had to check out. We could then spend time at a communial pool (very nice).
THe house was very clean and the service was like in a hotel with change of towels and linnen. It is spacious and plenty of room to sit outside and eat. All 14 of us.
It was close to several supermarkets and to the beach. Also walking distance to Cala D'or.
If anything, the area behind the pool could do with some fixing up. Also, we didn't use the upstairs bedroom without aircon. The kids made a large bedroom in the upstairs living room. Had someone slept in the non-aircon room they would have been hot.
All in all, we highly recommend this house and we would love to come again.
We had a lovely stay, our family of 16 (7 were children) there was plenty of room for all of us. The Villa was spacious and clean we were a short walk from a little beach with supermarkets near by. Its a quiet area you are not to far from the main strip. ( There is a need to have an information book in the Villa ) it would have been helpful. We will return for another family holiday. Maria was very nice to deal with .
Villa Blanca was perfect for our party of 4 families with teenage children. It is not luxurious but there is plenty of room and a lovely warm, clean pool. There are 4 downstairs bedrooms - 1 double and 3 twin all with en-suite bathrooms. All downstairs rooms have aircon, although some units worked better than others. Upstairs there are 2 twin and 1 double room. Only 1 twin room had an en-suite and aircon. The other twin had no aircon or wardrobe and got very hot! We managed to find a fan for the double room which made it bearable - another fan for the twin room would be great! All the rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. There are sofa beds in both lounges which are very comfortable. We did have some issues with a broken external door lock which was quickly attended to but not resolved during our stay. We were able to secure the property by locking internal doors when we were out. There were a couple of other minor maintenance issues which were not serious and did not spoil our enjoyment.
The villa is part of the Playa Ferrera holiday complex sited in several locations in Cala Ferrera. This meant we could use other pools in the complex. The villa is five minutes walk from a very pretty beach (gets quite busy) with warm, clear sea. There are 2 supermarkets within a 2 minute walk, they had everything we needed so we didn't need to do any shopping at the large supermarket in Cala D'or (a car wasn't needed). There are several bars and restaurants very close by - the Playa Ferrera pool bar is very friendly and the food and cocktails are good.
Our teenage children (age 13 to 17) loved the freedom that the resort offered. The villa is within easy walking distance of a range of shops, bars and beach, perfectly situated.
14 members of my family had an excellent week here - not long enough!
The downstairs kitchen needs some repairs to door handles but the property was kept clean, towels changed and the pool attended to.
We would suggest that the owner puts a book of information and map in the villa so that time is not wasted looking for shops, bus stops, activities etc.
We will certainly recommend this villa to friends and all want to return.
The villa is situated at the South East coast of the island at just a few metres from the beach “Playa Cala Ferrera” and at walking distance from the Touristic and Commercial Centre of Cala d´Or where charming beaches such as Cala Serena, Cala d´Or and Cala Esmeralda are located. The centre is very animated with it´s great variety of bars, restaurants, and shops. Cala d´Or is also famous for it´s Marina which is probably the most beautiful yacht port of the island.
Golf: The popular Vall d´Or Golf is situated at 6 km distance from the villa.
