“Vommero. Just the best holiday apartments I've ever been in.”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

John & Angela could not be more wellcoming or helpfull. The apartment I stayed in was"Vomero" & it was large, light, very wel furnished.spotlessly clean, & with its own balconey which had a fabulous view of Torbay. Vomero has everything lovely garden, good off street parking, Kids play area both indoors & out, laundertte,WIFI internet access.
The one small drawback is that its a bit of a climb up frof the town, but then I am 72.

We had to cancel our holiday in Torquay at the last minute due to illness. We phoned up John and Angela the day before we were due to travel. We were naturally prepared to give up the money paid and John said that he would try to sell our week. On the following Tuesday, John phoned to ask if my wife was feeling any better; the following week in our apartment was free and he invited us to stay in it at no charge. We were very touched and we’re driving down on Sunday. What a lovely thing to do!
We obviously had high expectations as we drove down to Torquay. HOT TIP! If you’re diving up Stichill Road, following your Satnav, Vomero is on the left, not right. There are two entrances TAKE THE HIGHER ONE! You’ll see. If you’re coming down the hill, it’s immediately on the right. Take time to read the blue plaque; it was Brunel’s house once.
The place lived up to our expectations. A Victorian villa overlooking Tor Bay, our apartment, with high ceilings, French doors to its own terrace, with views across the harbour. Everything that you could possibly want was provided. This was the first time I had ever been self catering in sixty years of holidaying. Everything was there; including a lovely welcome from a lovely couple.
We would certainly consider returning to this great place!

Beautiful house, comfortable apartments, stunning gardens. The kids zone ensured the kids were able to entertain themselves away from the adults in a safe enviroment and also gave us some peace and quiet! We will definately be going again. A perfect base for a holiday in Torquay and to explore the surrounding areas.

Vomero is a jewel in the English Riviera! We stayed for a month in this beautifully restored villa in a spacious apartment that was spotless and had everything you could want. John and Angela are excellent hosts and are always available if you need them.
The view and gardens are superb. They welcome children and have even set up a 'kids zone'. The free amenities are endless: full use of a computer, loads of movies and books, games for children, picnic sets, iron and ironing board, loungers and chairs in the garden, free parking, etc. If you feel like staying in for a day, it's a treat to take a book and sit in the gorgeous garden and listen to the birds singing.

we have just had a fantastic week staying at the vomero appartments. when we arrived john met us and gave us the guided tour of this beautiful home which he and his wife angela have lovingly restored. we could not fault anything at all, with everything there that you could possibly need even down to picnic hampers to take to the beach.when we booked we opted for a food hamper to be there on our arrival- we were not dissappointed it was a very wise decision as there were the everyday essential items that were needed.We thoroughly enjoyed it so much that we are hoping to return in September.

We have just returned home from a weeks stay at the Vomero Holiday apartments in beautiful Torquay, Devon. The apartment was outstanding, it was so clean, and comfortable, and had everything you could need. The whole Villa really had the "WOW" factor, as soon as we walked through the door, over the highly polished brass door step you could tell the owners were very careing.With flowers in the hall.and even upstairs. It is so grand yet with a homely atmosphere. There is a wonderful huge staircase, and you could just imagine all the important people who must have walked down those stairs in the past. You have just got to see it to believe it. John and Angela are the owners, they live in the property, so if you need anything or want to know anything they are on hand to help. They are really lovely people, and welcome you as soon as you get there. John showed us to our room, but first telling us where everything was ie Dvds, pool table, picnic chairs to borrow etc. Toys etc for children. Also a computer to use anytime. Then he showed us to our apartment and the view was brilliant,. We were both very taken aback. So our first visit to Torquay started off and carried on the same way all week, It was fantastic. We went to Paignton, Brixham, Babbacombe, Cockington and loads of other places too and loved them all. We cannot wait to go again next year, and my husband says he is getting a fishing rod to go beach casting, while I sun bathe. There is so much to see and do for all ages. We have really fell in love with Torquay and the surrounding areas. I hope this review will help others to find the English Riviera alot quicker than we did, its only took us 36 years before finding it. Now you will not keep us away.
