Large Group from Gosport, United Kingdom May 2015

I was arranging my hen do for 18 of us when I came across this villa. It looked ideal with its close amenities, 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and its own pool so we booked it for mid May 2015. I can honestly say we were not disappointed in the slightest. The villa had everything we needed, cutlery, bed sheets, bath towels. We did a combination of eating out in restaurants or having meals in the villa. One night we had a BBQ (as there is one at the villa) and it was amazing – sat out on the veranda watching the sun set, eating burgers and fresh fish and drinking wine so I would recommend taking advantage of this opportunity!
Even at the full capacity of 18 people, the villa was spacious enough so we never felt like we were on top of one another.
The owner, Patrick, was so helpful, from my original queries before id even booked, right up until a few days before the holiday. He answered all my emails so promptly and couldn’t have been more helpful. He and Jim also arranged our airport transfers from Faro which I would recommend doing as a taxi is more expensive.
Just a few things about the villa/area:-
Location – located in a quiet area, it could not have been more perfect. There were other villas around but you could not hear anything from the neighbours. We had no problems at all.
Supermarket – is literally a 5 min walk so stocking up on food and drink was not a problem. We were there Friday to Monday and it was open every day we were there. They also ordered taxis for us on occasions when we couldn’t get a taxi by phone.
Beach – it took us about 15 mins to walk to the beach but after some exploring we found shortcuts which halved the time so its worth having a roam and finding ways to get the beach quicker as its beautiful. The sand is golden, and very clean and there was a lifeguard on duty too. There are plenty of places to get something to eat or drink. The ice creams are amazing.
Old Town and New Town – they are a taxi ride away but very reasonable (average about 5-6 euros each way). If you like good nightlife then these are the places for you. Id say New Town is the livelier of the two and we found a beautiful restaurant in Old Town. We saw no trouble, lots of stag and hen parties who just wanted a good time. For mid May, it was busy.
Waterpark – Slide and Splash – is about 30 mins in a taxi (cost us 35 euros each way) but well worth it if you like flumes and riding in rubber rings! I was advised to avoid the place on weekends so we went on a Monday and it was practically empty – we didn’t queue for anything. I can imagine it gets heaving in the peak season though. Its worth a visit if you like this sort of thing.
We went in mid May 2015 and the weather was amazing – I think we struck lucky because there was a heatwave and we think the temp hit about 30 degrees.
Ok, so now for the negatives: we were only there for 4 days and not longer!!!
So, overall, all 18 of us had an amazing time and I have fallen in love with Portugal – the people are friendly, the area is clean, the scenery is beautiful, everything is reasonably priced. Basically a big thumbs up and I would recommend to anyone.
Miguel (the villa manager) was around if we needed him and was very friendly and speaks excellent English.
I would not hesitate to recommend this villa.
Thank you to Patrick and his team for making our stay so enjoyable. We want to go back already!

From Luton, United Kingdom Oct 2012

We decided on this villa as it stated it was wheelchair friendly this is not the case there are steps all round the villa and no ramps. There is no access to the pool or the area downstairs for wheelchair users. When it rainined the downstairs area flooded and the electricity kept going off we couldnt use the kettle and hob or cooker together. On the last day the rain caused the downstairs area to flood and it knocked out lights and sockets and we couldnt get them back on an electrician was promised and never turned up.

From Shrewsbury, United Kingdom Jul 2012

Excellent, very comfortable and catered for 12 persons easily.
The pool area and sun terrace were fantastic, great holiday shared by all.

From Dorchester, United Kingdom Jul 2009

Modern, clean, away from the crowd yet close to facilities.
A delayed flight meant we arrived late with no chance of shopping. The welcome pack was a life saver! Perfect for a late night snack and breakfast, the wine was a godsend!
Although only a 5 min walk to shops and a bus route we opted for a hire car and glad we did, the 30+ temp would have made for an unpleasant shopping experience.
Jimmy (the manager) was friendly, helpful and answered any questions he also made himself available 24/7 via mobile.
This was our first relaxing holiday where we planned to stay most of the time in the villa. Villa Torre was ideal. The seperate living areas meant children (and adults) were not couped up together. The BBQ is well laid out and perfect for that impromptu gathering. The pool was big enough for all to keep cool.
Definately recommended, Villa Torre is a step up from the standard villa with pool.
(on our return we noticed a piece in OK magazine about Steve Gerrards villa in Portugal, they have the same dining table as Torre, what that says I dont know but it is not cheap knocked up furnishing!)

Bert

From Uk

I have just returned from a long weekend stay with 7 friends at the Villa Torre and found this a perfect villa for both relaxing and enjoying yourselves. The Villa is approx a 5 minute walk form the shops/restaurants and taxi rank (5 Mins to Strip 5 Euros) and good value for money. The Villa has good size rooms, 2 living rooms and a excellent main dining room for entertaining, there is also a pool table outside perfect for playing with a few drinks whilst looking at the view. The pool area as expected was good with plenty of loungers to soak up the sun and clean. The area around the Villa itself is very quiet and but close enough for the strip for all the madness. I highly recommend staying at this Villa for either friends or family and Jimmy who met us will give you information on Albufeira. They are also going the extra mile and returning a cd and tshirt left at the villa by mistake - Class Service, Thanx Patrick & Jimmy

From Rickmansworth

Nice villa and good location. Perfect for those wanting quiet without being too far away from everything.
Only negative was a drainage problem in one of the showers which despite being reported early in the stay was never looked at.

07 Sep 2012 “Well located, wonderful, clean villa” A beautiful, clean villa with stunning views, spent a lot of time on the balcony where you can see the sea from! 3 minute walk away from the road, but this gives off NO sound/obstructions because of the location, very handy. No car needed which is ideal, everything is located within walking distance, very convientently placed for the supermarket too (4 mins). I went with a group of friends but the house would be ideal for a family as well, very generous pool and garden, great built in BBQ facilities (we took great advantage of all!). Albufeira allows for such an enjoyable holiday, nice restaurants and so lively on The Strip. I think we had it at its best having found this accommodation! Great value, very safe, cant wait to go back..

RE : Villa Torre, Luxury, 5 bedroom Villa, Albufeira, , ref no. 63919. A review has been submitted, a copy of the review is included in this email.The review:Myself and 8 friends had a very enjoyable 4 night stay in Villa Torre in July 2009.I initially only booked this villa because it was one of few that would allow bookings shorter than a week, which was very useful.The villa itself was an excellent size, with a large living/dining area, and downstairs living area (both with flatscreen TVs), a massive terrace (with an outside room with an inbuilt BBQ and sink) 5 good size bedrooms ƒ of the rooms were very large), and three bathrooms. The kitchen was small for the size of the villa, but all appliances were modern and how much time do you spend in the kitchen on holiday anyway. Two big pluses if you are going with a large group - there was a dishwasher and very large fridge/freezer. The furnishings in all rooms were to a high standard. The pool area was lovely, with plenty of room for 9 of us and our sunloungers, and plenty of umbrellas so that you have the option of shade or sun.The maps of the villa give the impression it is very remote, but it's only a 5ᆞ minute taxi into Albufeira. In the day it is very quiet but that suited us, we could play music round the pool and do whatever we wanted. In front of the property there is space for two cars if you wanted to rent them, although we didn't bother. There is a large supermarket (i.e. not too expensive!) a 10ᆣ min walk from the villa and a few small cafes and restaurants in the same area, if you want to have a holiday that is walkable only.The owners/property managers were very helpful, and happy to bring extra sunloungers when we noticed there weren't enough.Can't really think of any negatives. There was a bit of a drain smell from the toilets sometimes, but we never bothered to complain about it so it couldn't have bothered us that much. We just kept the bathrooms doors shut. You couldn't smell anything in the communal areas anyway.All in all a very enjoyable holiday and would definately recommend the villa to someone who doesn't mind staying somewhere a bit out of town.
