Great villa, great value. Spotless when we arrived. Pool cleaned regularly. Local bars and restaurants walking distance.
Solmar service from start to finish superb!
Tue 02 May 2023
Excellent villa, great for groups. We had a group of 5 and it gave us the space we needed but also the pool was fantastic. Great location situated in between old and new town, about 10/15 minute to walk to either. Would definitely stay again.
Mon 03 Apr 2023
Good villa close to Supermarket and within easy reach of old town. Property would benefit from some small tables around pool and on terrace as only one very large table outside. Villa was very clean but let down by this outside table being filthy. Property was well equipped with cutlery and crockery.
Fri 15 Jul 2022
Villa was very well located closed to all amenities.
Tue 05 Jul 2022
Good location for beach, supermarket and restaurants. 20 mins to old and new town. Plenty of stuff in kitchen and rooms spacious. It could benefit from an update as certain aspects are well worn. Pool and sun bathing area not as spacious as shown in photos and loungers in dire need of replacement. Although out of control from solmar the area was incredibly noisy with nearby residents partying until early hours every day.
One of down stairs ensuite did not have a loo despite this being mentioned on the website

Location is good, pool size is good.
Mon 02 May 2022
Great space for a large group, plenty of bathrooms and beds can comfortably sleep 10 adults. The pool area is a good size as is the pool itself, nice to have use of a BBQ and a small lawned area.
Plenty of towels were supplied both for the Villa and also for use by the pool. Also a good amount of cleaning tools and the washing machine was very useful. The kitchen is very well equipped, plenty of pots, pans, crockery cutlery etc. You have a good sized fridge freezer, a single oven with gas hob. There's an iron and board so you can look your best, it's handy to know so you don't have to pack a travel iron! The Villa is 2 minutes walking distance from the local super markets, cafes and souvenir shops and about 20 minutes from the beach. The hop on hop off bus stop for the wider area is just across the main road. There's a land train you can catch that serves Albufeira and buses go to Faro. There are a few beaches to choose from, one at the end of the strip - which is a good place for young people or those who are young at heart! The main Albufeira beach, we like the Marina area which you can get to by taxi/land train or we liked to walk which takes about 40 minutes from the Villa.

Beautiful villa in a great location short walk to bars restaurants and supermarkets, beach and old town nearby we walked there every day the children loved the pool we had a fantastic time
Wed 13 Oct 2021
The villa was in a quiet residential area and ideally placed near to the local supermarket Pinho Dos and a 20-25 minute walk from the Old town or the new town strip of bars and restaurants, which was great.
Fri 02 Jul 2021
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!!

A very good holiday, good transfer from airport to villa and villa to airport.

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

Superbly located, with all the facilities for families near bye.
