A lovely villa in a beautiful and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We are a group four adults who like to holiday together in order to paint. we chose the villa because it had four bedrooms and two bathrooms and in the lovely town of Puerto Pollensa.

We found the villa to be in a lovely quiet location and yet close to the sea and some restaurants and a supermarket. It is a lovely modern comfortable villa with attractive features and modern decor. the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and easy to use. The welcome pack was useful and generous, we appreciated the wine straight away!

We used the taxi companies that were recommended and found all of the drivers to be very helpful and inexpensive.

The area around was perfect for our hobby and we brought back lots of paintings.

We visited several restaurants and had some great meals. We will certainly be happy to return.

The agent Debbie was beyond all possible expectations the most helpful and friendly person.

Our one reservation was that the fourth bedroom had bunk beds, rather than the single bed quoted, comfortable but less desirable for an adult!

Owner's Response: Dear Christine and friends. I am so pleased the villa was ideal for you and your friends for a peaceful sunny late September week together. With the mountains behind and the sea down the lane, I’m sure there were plenty of perfect painting locations! I really do appreciate your kind comments about the facilities and attention to detail. I was a pleasure to have been of service, and come back soon! Kind regards. Richard, owner, footprintsvillamallorca.com

Wonderful villa, wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Footprints is a truly wonderful villa. This was a return visit for us so that must say it all! The owner provides an efficient, professional service. The villa is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The pool being heated now is a real benefit and the children really enjoyed it. I am a little loath to rate the villa too highly in case I am unable to book it next year!

Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

We have not long returned from our second visit to the Footprints Villa in Pollensa and it was every bit as good, if not better than the last time. Our host, Richard had left a very generous Welcome Pack for us and we enjoyed some lovely wines as we sat by the pool at lunch or in the evening before going out to dine at one of the many places to eat on the beautiful pine walk. We also enjoyed an evening of Flamenco at the Illa Dor hotel within easy walking distance of the Villa. Some in our party were happy to lie by the pool, while others headed for the hills on walking tours. We had everything we needed in the surrounding area. A good time was had by all and we agreed we would be happy to go back again at a later date.

Great weeks holiday for the family

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this property It is situated on the perimeter of Puerto Pollensa and was very quiet

The villa is very private and we particularly loved the pool. My grandson of 2 1/2 loved all the pool toys and it was quite safe for him. There is a local Spa shop and although a little expensive stocks everything you could want and also they stock English newspapers and speak English!!

Richard is a good communicator and was most helpful .The instructions of how to get to the villa are easy to follow.

Wonderful villa

  • 4 of 5

Small but very well laid out villa, that made it feel a lot larger. The villa was nice and clean and Richard seemed genuinely concerned that we enjoyed our time there. Having beach towels and white room products gave it a boutique hotel feel. Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Dear Nicola and Jon Thank you so much for you recommendation to others following your recent stay at Footprints Villa. Thanks too for your text message received during your stay, advising you were ‘thoroughly enjoying the villa with its great layout’. Much appreciated. Sad to have lost a review star on your note about the villa feeling large, but small…not observed in the previous 60 reviews, but for those interested in staying, the dimensions are in my listing (see - ‘facilities’) at approx. 200sq.m. It was a pleasure to have been of service and thank you for your valued custom. Kind regards.

About Richard Affleck, Owner.

Hi! I'm Richard, the owner of Footprints Villa.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my Puerto Pollensa home and if you wish to come and stay, please just complete the enquiry form and I'll get back to you immediately. I directly manage all my clients' enquiries (no call centre agents for me!) and endeavour to provide a tip top service, from first enquiry, through pre-arrival planning and information and am always available during your stay, as is my manager in resort who lives close by for all your needs.

I bought this house a few years ago, but as it was built in the 60's in a rather basic fashion, down it came and with the help of a brilliant and sought after Palma architect and an excellent local firm, we created Footprints, using modern techniques, lovely local materials (all the exceptional joinery, doors, windows etc where made in Pollenca!) and simple thought of how one would wish to live with family and friends in the those precious week(s) of holiday time.

Richard Affleck, Owner. purchased this villa in 2009

Why Richard Affleck, Owner. chose Formentor

Why this property? Location is a close to the sea you can smell it and walk to it in minutes, as well as great places to eat and drink along the famous sea-edge Pine Walk.

The villa is at the western end, so rarely busy as perfectly distanced from the town but within easy reach on foot.

Set amounts a small gathering of other private homes it's aspect was also vital in picking the location. It's quiet, safe and homely.

And it's south facing, so sunny all day (although well shaded decks if it gets too hot!). The private pool help there of course, not to mention a quick dip in the sea followed by cocktails at the Illa D'or beach bar of course!

What makes this villa unique

It's unique benefits, save the location are, I feel, a great use of space in the open plan living space, leading out, via 3 huge glass sliding doors onto the pool deck. Three bedrooms, separated at each end of the villa and uniquely furnished, with great beds and high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and duvets.

As the villa is all on one level, its ideal too for those members of your group who may be less able to get around independently. My step sister has been wheelchair bound with MS (sadly only in her 40's) so design ideas like a sliding pocket door to one wet room, low lip main access doors (we even have a ramp if needed) grab rails in one add up to easing independence for those who want it and deserve it as they wish.

To add security, the entire villa is fenced with just one access gate. Intercom entry system.

There is an expansive roof terrace too, with new canopy 'sail' shade if needed and for 2017, I'm adding more 'chill out' seating - Ideal for adults and especially teenagers to use it as 'their space', so I'm enhancing this mountain view space.

Beyond furniture, English TV, wireless, pool towels, bathrobes etc etc all of which guests rightly expect, I feel the most important 'unique benefit' of any holiday home is how it works for the families and friends who stay there and thus my focus, from design, through construction and to being in operation, is to apply every small details I know I would want, and working year on year to pick up on suggestions from past and returning clients to ever evolve Footprints into a memorable, relaxing and happy home for all, young and old. Holidays must be the best bits of our lives & times together, and thus I hope Footprints delivers for those who choose to stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just arrived back from a relaxing week at Footprints villa. It was everything that was promised in Richards description and more beside. The pool was used daily and our 4 year old grandson is now on the way to be ing an accomplished swimmer. My two adult sons hired 2 bikes and cycled up into the surrounding hills and said the views were breathtaking. We will certainly recommend it to all our friends and family and we look forward to returning.

Car: not necessary

You can not get any closer to all the facilities a family requires from a holiday in Puerto Pollenca. No car required, as beach (150 metres) shops (250 metres), restaurants and bars (100 metres and beyond) and the main town are ALL within walking distance.

I can recommend an excellent airport transfers company (from cars to 8 seater mini-buses).

Most villas in the area are set in the outer areas of the town, requiring a car for visiting the beach, bars and even just to grab a pint of milk! Otherwise, its an apartment with a busy shared pool.

Footprints villa enjoys a fantastic location to enable you to arrive, park the car, and leave it if you wish!

100 metres from the sea, set in a delightfully quiet tree-lined cul-de-sac of exclusive residential homes.

It is moments to places to eat, drink and shop, especially those located along the quiet, upmarket western section of the Pine Walk.

The villa is a haven. Relax by the pool, on the decks, or even on the large roof deck with great mountain views, or inside in the trendy lounge, or at the bar at the slick kitchen made by hand in the Old town of Pollensa with white granite tops, with Bosch equipment, coffee machine, dishwasher etc....or your designer bedroom, all equipped with thick, fluffy towels and The White Company toiletries. I provide a complimentary welcome pack on arrive.

The villa is fully wireless for internet - 300Mb speed.
