Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Formentor - Footprints Villa

A contemporary luxury private villa home, sleeping 7 (4 bedrooms). Moments walk

I HAVE MY OWN WEB SITE. COME TAKE A VISIT - www.footprintsvillamallorca.com

Footprints Villa is a stylish, contemporary, modern home, detached & totally private, with its own private heated pool & mountain views, just a few seconds walk to the beaches & Pine Walk, Puerto Pollenca. Sleeps 7 (4 bedrooms). Perfect for families.

As of 2016, it is has become the most top marked reviewed 4 bedroom villa with heated private pool on this site, on the island of Mallorca.

Built just a few years ago, Footprints Villa's location is at the quiet western end of the famous Pine Walk, adjacent to the Illa D'or Hotel (great beach bar...open to all!).

It's rare to find a stylish villa of a high end design (concept and project by the regarded Palma firm of NB Architecture) with private heated pool & grounds (not overlooked), within walking distance (approx150m) to the sea front. Created with modern, open aspect contemporary design to provide privacy & ease of living, the villa incorporates south facing pool decks, large roof terrace - both with lots of space for sun lovers, outside dining & fully air conditioned/ heated interiors.

Inside, the large 40 foot open living space has a striking granite & chrome new kitchen, leading to the lounging area - with flat screen TV, (UK TV, large DVD film library) & plentiful plush seating, all leading to the pool, patios & large stone BBQ.

Bars, restaurants and a small supermarket are all within walking distance.

Free wireless throughout.

Bath robes are provided for all adults and an excellent range of The White Company of London toiletries are provided for all guests.

An extensive complimentary welcome pack is provided for your arrival.

Beach/pool towels are also provided.

Flight info - the best flight for low cost flights is www.skyscanner.net. It searches all low cost carries are also mixes and matches - travel out with one airline, and return with another, creating the lowers price on line!

Things to do (other than relax by the sea or pool).....

Golf Clubs closest to Footprints villa: Pollensa GC and Alcudia GC. Why not enjoy some wonderful local golf during your stay.

Pollensa Golf - located around 15 minutes drive from the villa. A fine test of golf can be found at the sea-edge course of Alcudia, around 20 minutes drive.

Cycling: The island of Mallorca is a world renowned training location for all levels of cycling fans, especially out of the high summer season. Why not enjoy the villa as a base for your cycling holiday. It's located east of the testing Formentor run, and west of the mountains that rise up near Pollenca old town and range for many miles over to the west coast of the island.

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 sun...for those precious week(s) of holiday time.

Richard Affleck, owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why Richard Affleck, owner chose Pollenca

Why this property?....easy. Location is a given....so 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 design....large open plan living space, leading out, via 3 huge glass sliding doors onto the pool deck. Four bedrooms, 2 at each end of the villa are 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 bathroom....all 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, so keeping wandering little guests within the perimeter is assured!

There is an expansive roof terrace too, with new canopy 'sail' shade if needed and for 2015, I'm adding more 'chill out' furniture....it's always proved popular 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.

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.

Simply Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Having enjoyed visiting Puerto Pollenca many times Footprints is far the best Villa we have stayed in. Upon arrival to our scrupulously clean holiday home the welcome pack provided had everything we needed before going shopping. A much needed glass of chilled white wine hit the spot as well as tea/coffee, bread and other goodies. The villa works well for 2 families - two bedrooms each end with the spacious kitchen and lounge in the middle. Richard's pre-arrival instructions and the information books in the villa were full of top tips and recommendations. Outside the comfy seats underneath the shaded area were well used as were the sun loungers before dipping in the lovely pool. The teenagers loved the roof terrace with double sun bed and 2 loungers and many card games were played at the shady table at the rear of the property. Wifi was incredibly fast much to the teenagers' delight! Footprints is so well equipped in the kitchen and throughout. The beach towels and bed linens are of the highest quality and The White Company products were a lovely touch. We loved having a leisurely breakfast wearing the bathrobes provided. As we arrived before the designated arrival time, as suggested by Richard, we enjoyed a leisurely lunch and a dip in the pool at The Laguna Bar which is just minutes away. Will be booking again.

A lovely villa in a lovely part of Majorca

  • 5 of 5

It's a lovely, well equipped villa, within walking distance of The Pine Walk at the far north-west end. We had a very enjoyable week there and would happily recommend it to others.

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Footprints villa is in a perfect location, just a short walk from the sea, and a gentle 20 min stroll along the pine walk to the centre. The area where the villa is situated is very peaceful both during the day and at night. The facilities are exactly as described, although the fourth bedroom was set up as bunk beds when we were there, which was ok for our adult son, but would not suit two adults. but I presume this would be changed accordingly. The furnishings are lovely and very comfortable, and the cooker, coffee maker etc are all easy to use, as is the barbeque. The towels and robes provided, including pool/ beach towels are perfect and leave room in the suitcase for more essential items. The villa was very clean when we arrived, and the bathrooms were cleaned again during the week, and clean bathroom towels provided. The pool is fabulous and bigger than it looks in the photo, and there are plenty of loungers and also extra sunbathing space on the roof terrace. Richard himself was most helpful right from my first enquiry, and his very precise instructions make everything very simple and clear even before you arrive. We loved this villa, and would love to visit again. It is well worth the money. Stay there, you won.t be disappointed!

Perfect location, perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

Richard knows how to look after his guests from the first enquiry right through to the special touches made in the villa that helped make the stay special.

Spotless villa, fantastically furnished exactly as described.

We would not hesitate recommending the villa to anyone considering a break in Mallorca.

Puerto Pollensa Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

First class everything from the start...Richard Affleck provides exemplary customer service and villa! It is everything it says it is and more. It became home from the minute our 'footprints' were inside! We were a party of 7 and the accommodation and layout suited our every need! An abundance of areas within the property for quiet time, social time, own time, shade time, sun time...

Richard has thought of everything...infact we played a game trying to think of something that might have been forgotten! We lost!

It is in the perfect location and if it's a chill out holiday you are after, don't rent a car...it is all walkable. We hired a taxi to the main supermarket (Eroski) using the company Richard recommended. (5-7 Euros one way) and the supermarket will order a taxi for you once you have completed your shop if you ask!

Store Formentor is only a 7-10 minute walk away for milk,bread etc and well stocked but slightly more expensive than the big supermarket and their restaurant (casual) is good and very reasonable...tasty! They also do carry out!

Beaches are literally 100m away...little coved sandy beaches with still calm lagoon like water and stunning views over the bay!

Pine Walk is idyllic.

I could go on and on...if you want a perfect villa holiday then don't hesitate...BOOK IT...you won't be disappointed!

Thank You Richard (and Magdalena!)

Owner's Response: Dear Sandie and family I am so grateful and appreciative of your kind and generous comments! It certainly sounds like a great time was had by all, and the facilities and location of Footprints were ideal. It was my pleasure to be of service in the run up to your arrival and to ensure all was as you'd expect when in residence. I'll pass on your note to my local gem of an agent, Magdalena! Come back soon! Kind regards. Richard (owner)

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 bath robes, The White Company toiletries. I provide a complimentary welcome pack on arrive.

The villa is fully wireless for internet.
