Located in the Castelo region of Albufeira, this lovely and unique, ground floor apartment benefits from a private pool and offers spacious accommodation throughout. The owner occupies the first floor, but is rarely there during the day while the pool is totally exclusive to the guests and is not used by the owner. A few local restaurants can be reached within a five minute walk while a sandy beach can be reached within a fifteen minute walk.
As before- the villa has had a bit of a make-over since our last visit, but this is not reflected in the brochure or website.
A fantastic place!!
So much better than last years villas in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

Not everyones cup of tea, but suits us perfectly. Very quiet and at first there does not seem to be much within walking distance but there is plenty and if you actually mix with the locals they are wonderful people.
Miss Hazelgrove, July 2011
Perfect location to local amenities and also close enough to get into the local towns, restaurants and bars cheaply by taxi

We have stayed at the Casa Pluma before, and we have found it very enjoyable. Now, it's even better! New furniture, television, decor. four of the eight guests had not visited the villa or Portugal previously, and were very impressed. they would consider booking a James Villa villa again.
Mr Wilshin, April 2011
Casa Pluma was fabulous! It was bright and airey with loads of room. The Villa and Pool were both cleaned whilst we were there. A good selection of Beaches and Restaurants within walking distance but we found that a car was neccessary when the weather turned. Not James Villas fault but the airline is a free for all with no seat allocation! We were wise to that on the return flight and made sure we were at the front of the queue so we could all sit together. Would definitely go there again.
Mr Littlewood, August 2010
casa pluma was the best villa we have stayed in, for the villa itself, swimming pool and the situation to all amenities. this was our 7th holiday with james villas, thank you very much. I did put dissatisfied with the flight because it was two and a half hours late, with no explanation only delayed on the screen, but that was no fault of James Villa Holidays, it just ment that we were very late getting to our destination, it was after midnight.
Mrs Littlewood, August 2010

When we went with James villa's before to lanzarote the information in our villa was fantastic and very specific to our villa. In portugal the folder was much more generic which wasn't as helpful. otherwise fantastic!
Mr Hayes, July 2008
We had a wonderful holiday, the villa was fantastic and any queries that we had were sorted out very quickly. The only thing that would have made it even better for us, would be softer mattresses and king size beds
Mr Brennan, April 2008
We wanted a relaxing holiday at our own pace and that was exactly what we got. The villa and pool were superb, the location was close to everything we wanted and we found it easy to travel further when we wanted to. Well done James Villas, the most relaxing, stress free holiday we've ever had!
Mr Weston, August 2007
very relaxing and enjoyale holiday for all the family. Some of our family had not been in a villa before. They said they couldn't believe how relaxing it was to do things at our own pace.
Mr Blackmore, June 2007
We have recently returned from our 5th James Villa holiday and as usual our accomadation has been excellent. Only on rare occassions do we need the help of your representative and we enjoy being left alone to relax and enjoy ourselves without interference. We have already booked for 2008 but any loyalty extras on offer would be much appreciated.

East Sussex Family (the eldest child is at school)
Absolutely loved this villa and pool, weather was amazing for end of season, pool was massive, villa was huge, organisation of James Villas and keys was great. The villa was huge and just a wonderful experience. Dogs were noisy all night long nearby. Transfer was good too.

Lovely villa, pretty big for us since there was just the two of us but almost everything you could possibly need for your stay, a shopping trolley would have been handy as the nearest shop was a 15 min walk away so if you need heavy stuff this would have been ideal. Gorgeous area if a bit quiet. There are plenty of eating places so you dont go hungry. About a 30min slow walk into Albufera and about 8Euros in a taxi. Had a great 2 weeks here

The pool was very good and villa was spacious, free car hire was very useful in this location.
Dogs barking were annoying, no air conditioning.

Leeds Family (the eldest child is at school)
The villa itself is clean but basic with the pool area being the main attraction. The kitchen is quite dated and would benefit from refurbishing. Initially there seems to be very little near the villa but once you start exploring there are many restaurants and lots of beautiful beaches close by. The main fault is the neighbouring Villas as they all have dogs and they bark during the day and night which really spoils the holiday. Would I go again? No due to the noise as it gets very loud and woke us during the night.
