We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.
Terms and Conditions
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' applies to bookings for arrival between 1st May 2021 and 31st December 2021 only.
If there are restrictions advising against travel to your chosen destination country, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
If there are restrictions in your destination country preventing you from being able to travel to that destination, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is automatically included in the search results price on the solmarvillas.com website.
The premium paid for 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-commissionable.
The premium can be removed from the basket if not required. If removed during booking, you still have 7 days from confirmation to add this back on if needed.
For bookings made less than 6 weeks before arrival, this premium can't be added or removed after booking.
The 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-refundable, non-transferable and non-commissionable.
Cancellation of the booking will also result in loss of the premium paid.
You should ensure you have adequate comprehensive travel insurance to protect you in cases of cancellation for any other reason including, but no limited to, being unable to travel due to airline failure or cancellation, being quarantined for or diagnosed with Covid-19 or unable to travel due to work commitments or restrictions upon return.
Normal Terms and Conditions will apply for ancillary products such as car hire and transfers etc.

This traditional white-washed villa with beautiful green shutters is the epitome of Portuguese design. With the large pool taking centre stage within the sunny terrace, the property offers ample space for eight adults to soak up the sunshine during the day and enjoy alfresco meals in the evening. Inside, the accommodation is split over two levels with the well equipped kitchen and lounge area situated on the ground floor along with two of the five air-conditioned bedrooms, one of which boasts an en-suite shower room. Upstairs are two twin bedrooms which share the spacious family bathroom and a double bedroom with bathroom ensuite.
Boasting an array of bars, shops and restaurants, the popular resort of Albufeira is within a short stroll from Villa Torcato making it ideal for families who would not like to hire a car, however, for those who wish to explore the region, the charming village of Guia is just a ten minute drive away which is famous for its chicken piri-piri restaurants. Also nearby is ZooMarine, an ocean life theme park, which is incredibly popular amongst families for its dolphin show.

Faro Airport (FAO)
Albufeira is the jewel in the Algarve's crown and is all about the entertainment factor. This bustling seaside town is home to silky soft sands, a cosmopolitan marina and plenty of family-fun adventures, including water parks and a zoomarine park. You can also potter the cobbled streets of Albufeira's whitewashed Old Town and soak up the local culture, or take your pick from some of the best beaches in Portugal including the nearby golden sands of Gale and Sao Rafael.
The villa is in an excellent location, with the Old Town being a 15min walk away in one direction and The Strip a 15min walk in the other. There is also one large and one small supermarket within 5min walk as well as restaurants and bars (including McDonald's, KFC, and local restaurants). The outside pool area is wonderful and catches the sun all day. The area is quiet and the villa garden has plenty of foliage so isn't overlooked. The indoor facilities are a little dated but are fully functional and everything you could need is provided. We would recommend this villa for groups/families.

The size of the villa was perfect, we all had plenty of room there were 11 of us in total and still plenty room for a couple more!! 2 of our party were babies so slept in one room with us in travel cots. The villa was ready before handover which was really convenient and our rep kept us up to date. Location wasn't to bad 20 min walk from the main strip or 20 minutes walk to old town and beach, but there was a little train you could pick up across the road and for €5 you could get a return trip. Plenty if super markets close to stock up. There is a 10pm curfew as in no noise after this time which is fine but others didn't seem to abide the rule!!

We had a fantastic family holiday would definitely recommend villa Torcato. Only issue was comfort of some of the beds I think they need to be reviewed and the high chair was old and in bad repair other than that it was great
