“Perfect for big groups!”

I never leave reviews on anything but this villa defiantly deserves one! After reading some of the previous reviews on this villa I was quite worried as we were a party of 17 women (ages 24-72) coming on a hen weekend and wanted it to be perfect. When we arrived we realised all the worrying was for nothing. We arrived quite late and was met by Miguel who was great and showed us around the villa and answered any of our questions. After Miguel pointed us in the right direction we all walked to the shop to stock up on essentials (mainly alcohol) which is literally a 5 minute walk.The shortcut is through a field but felt very safe and there's kind of a path already made from everyone walking through which makes its very easy even in heels. The super market is super cheap and had everything you might need. We found a few lovely restaurants around the same area as the super market which were very cheap and catered for our big group. In the days we didn't really leave the pool area which was perfect for sunbathing as it had the sun all day. As I'm sure you can imagine 17 women in a villa would be very manic but surprisingly the villa was so big you couldn't even tell. All of us had our own beds and towels which was defiantly a plus for us as we all didn't want the short straw of a sofa bed.There were enough bathrooms so no one was ever waiting to use them and everyone could get dressed and ready without being under each others feet. The only thing I could say is there wasn't enough mirrors but other than that I've honestly not got one bad comment for this villa and we all plan on returning again next year :) I would like to thank Jim who we booked the villa with, we spoke to him quite a lot on the running up to our visit to the villa and he helped us greatly with transfers etc... He responded quickly to every one of our emails! And lastly thanks Miguel you were amazing! We called Miguel early every morning to arrange for him to pick us all up and take us to the old town which only cost 10euros. (4 person private taxi on the way back from old town cost 10 euros) He was always on time and completely took away the fuss of trying to find taxis for all 17 of us! Thanks for everything guys see you next year!

Chris :)

“Amazing Villa!”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Absolutely nothing bad to say about this villa! Booked through Holiday Lettings and had excellent communications with Jim from Columbia who was really helpful with all questions right up until the time of the holiday. On arrival in Portugal it was late evening and we called the local agent (Miguel) who gave us the key code and arranged to meet us in the morning. He came and showed us what we needed to know and answered any questions and made sure we knew we could contact him anytime with any problems - which we didn't have.

We went as a group of friends celebrating birthdays and this place was perfect. We were only 8 of us in the end and so the villa was huge, we practically had a bedroom each which was great. The villa itself was clean and everything about in good working order, and kitted out to a high standard. The communal dining / kitchen area with access out to the terrace was great for pre-going out drink and breakfast which is about the extent of the cooking we did although everything was there if we wanted to.

Location wise, it was excellent. Close enough to the supermarket and local bars / restaurants but not cramped in or particularly overlooked. We didn't feel like we had to worry about the neighbours particularly but yet weren't in the middle of nowhere. Access to Albufeira was just a short taxi away, although if not looking for busy bars / night life then the local bars and restaurants were very good.

All in all, really enjoyed our short stay in Villa Torre and would recommend it and Jim and the team at Columbia.

“Great for big groups but quite secluded”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

15 girls went for 3 nights here recently. Bedrooms are great, poolside brilliant. Supermarket just a short walk away. It is however up a dirt track making it secluded and unfortunately on our second night we were burgled. Police said we were easy targets as it only take someone to walk by during the day & hearing us all round the pool and then it going quiet at night. Police were very helpful & luckily the majority of us put our money in the safe (which the burglars didn't touch) Miguel wouldn't board the broken window up so we were left with an insecure house.

We had two power cuts whilst there too - one which cut the power off to the kitchen meaning we lost everything in the freezer. It seems it can't cope with more than one hairdryer being used at once - not good when groups of girls are getting ready. Again Miguel wasn't helpful when we rang with the electricity prob saying he lived 40km away and would take too long to come & help us!!

Taxis are cheap - the strip is fab particular wild & co with the amazing cocktails making tricks & live band. Would also recommend Bank in the old town - lovely restaurant for early evening but turns into a lively bar with amazing tunes at night!

We didn't let these things spoil our holiday though and had a really good time, the weather was excellent and the pool much needed!!

“Excellent Villa - Perfect for us”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Villa and its amenities were perfect for our group of 18 ladies on a Hen Do. It is 5 minutes walk to the supermarket and 15 minutes to the beach. It feels secluded but is still close enough to anything you would need and taxis to Albufeira are only 8 Euros.

“Absolutely outstanding”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We came here on a hen party and had the most amazing time. The supermarket just minutes to walk to and the beach with lovely restaurants and friendly staff just a short distance too. A short taxi ride to old town and new town at low cost prices. Will certainly go back and hopefully to this villa with the family.

“Excellent location, beautiful villa, great price!!”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

12 of us are just back from staying at villa torre for a hen party. The location is great, 5 min walk from a massive supermarket with bakery and off license, and also taxi/bus stops. Just under €5 to new town and about €9 to old town. Villa itself is great, very clean, plenty of bathrooms, all furniture is high quality not cheap like you would expect when accommodating large parties. Outside area and look are fab. Only one thing I would say is that a mirror in each of the bedrooms would be great as 12 of us all had to share the one big mirror in the kitchen. Also, maybe keep the address of the villa written down when you go out as very few taxis new exactly where the villa was and we were getting left off down the road and had to walk. Miguel was very helpful and also so was Patrick as I'm sure I must have sent him about 20 emails asking for info before we arrived, all of which he answered very quickly. Great idea for the drop box at the villa gate for the keys so you can leave them there when you go out for the night then use the code to unlock it for the keys when you return again. Overall the villa was excellent and a great time was had by all, I would definitely recommend this to anyone and will defo be back to stay at another of Patrick's villas in the future

“Perfect villa for large groups”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I booked this villa for a hen party of 12 people. Booking was made very simple by Patrick and we were in frequent contact with him to ask questions which he always answered promtly.

On arrival at Faro airport we booked transfers with a company called Yellowfish who were a reasonable price, easily booked online and were easy to find in the airport. I received great customer service from this company- especially when some flights were delayed. Transfer took around 35mins.

On arrival at the villa, the property manager Jimmy opened the villa for us and gave us a very quick tour around. However, we got no information on wifi services and there was no welcome pack which would of been handy to explain all the amenties after he departed.

The villa is HUGE, lots of bedrooms and bathrooms for each room. A large living room downstairs, a large kitchen area and balcony with a snooker table and outdoor eating area. The villa has its own private pool with sunbeds for each person. BEWARE of the cold showers- only about 4 people out of 12 got hot showers each night before the water became freezing! We could not find a water heater and wern't informed this would happen so the advice would be to shower first! It was rather irritating- obviously no-one wanted a cold shower!

The villa is located up a dirt track road which gives the villa much needed privacy, especially with a big group. The location to the shop is very close but includes a walk over a sandy field which can be difficult when pushing/ hauling a shopping trolley of groceries back to the villa! The main strip in Albuferia is NOT within walking distance- it takes about a 10 minute taxi drive which costs roughly 7 euros- we used a taxi number found in the villa and the taxi service had 3 taxis within 5mins of a phonecall so a really reliable service.

The main strip has lots of great nightclubs (Patcha was our fav!) which dont close until around 600 in the morning- taxis are on the strip at all times so its easy to get home (unless you forget the address of the villa lol). We ate out on the strip too and there are some nice eating places which dont cost alot.

Overall, I would def recommend this villa for large groups- its so private and has so much space indoors and outdoors! The only downfall was the cold showers and no wifi- which are both necessities for a bunch of girls lol! We also needed to buy washing up liquid, a cork screw and tablets for the dishwasher which we think would of been handy if provided. Also some more mirrors would be good as there was only 2/3 for the whole villa!

Amazing holiday and perfect villa for a Hen party! Thanks Patrick!
