Gemma Pearce purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Gemma Pearce chose Urbanització la Font
The house was bought by our family in Nov '15. We have small children and bought into Pollenca being the perfect family holiday destination, as there is so much to do & see. If you have a love of sun, water & water based activities, cycling, walking & general well being, then this is the place for you! The garden & pool areas were renovated for the start of the 2017 rental season, and the villa has been fully refurbished internally between Nov 18-April 19.

Brilliant villa for large family vacations
We met up with another family and used this gorgeous villa as our base. It's perfectly located within walking distance to Pollença and a short drive to the port, with fab supermarkets a few minutes drive away making it easy to pick things up for impromptu bbq evenings.
The villa feels super spacious and has plenty of room for adults and kids alike to feel like they have their own space.
We especially loved the large outdoor living area and opted to spend a lot of time here rather than dashing out to eat at restaurants... also loved the table tennis!
The kitchen is beyond amazing and really well stocked with every implement you might need, whilst the pool area has plenty of lounging spots for sun or shade seekers alike.
It really did feel like we had time to relax on this holiday mostly because all our needs were covered by Gemma who had thought of pretty much everything we would require for a family stay.
I would definitely recommend this villa and will be heading back there soon for sure.
Villa Longa was everything we had hoped it would be from first seeing its listing and being cautiously expectant of its recent major refurbishment.
The quality and specification of the interior was first class; the indoor - outdoor living and chill out areas were incredibly spacious and more than sufficient for the 5 of us to each find their own space; the pool and mature gardens were a joy.
The owner Gemma has done a wonderful job and the backdrop of a nearby mountain then just frames the villa perfectly.
Not knowing this side of the island we were a little nervous on booking whether it might be too built up outside of a popular town like Pollenca but the very private road that Villa Longa is on just outside of the town perimeter is far enough away from any main road to be incredibly tranquil and yet ideal for quick access to a couple of supermarkets, a great choice of Pollenca and Port De Pollenca cafes and restaurants ...and of course the north east beaches.
The hardcore cyclists in the family said it was an ideal base for their almost daily regime of mountains and flats - whilst others simply took to a private early morning Yoga lesson by the pool and fresh coffee!
Our 4yr old grandson spent most of the week in the Pool and woke up this morning and said it was ‘the best holiday’ he has had.
Highly recommended... but please don’t book the week we all want to return!
A beautiful, elegant, well appointed home from home.
We have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at villa longa.
We stayed as a family of seven adults and two little ones - all were
Very happy with the fantastic facilities, the stunning pool and beautiful and very well kept gardens.
Gemma - the owner was very helpful and quick to reply to my queries.
The location too is great, just a very short drive to two excellent supermarkets.
Definitely one of the best, of many villas we have stayed in over the years.
