Villa in Vale de Parra, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location And Views Of Conversation Lake

Villa Toriba stands in a commanding position on the edge of the village of Vale de Parra facing due south with panoramic views of the coast and surrounding countryside, rich with olive and citrus groves. Vale de Parra (valley of grapevines) is an area of tranquil farmland with lovely uncrowded beaches just 3km from Guia, famous for its excellent choice of Portuguese restaurants. The splendid sandy beach at Gale is about 1km distant with many sheltered coves nearby. Daily shopping needs can be met in the village with a well stocked mini-market or the cobbled streets of Albufeira, 5km in distance. The Villa is surrounded by mature and well maintained gardens showing a blaze of colour most of the year. A feature of the front garden is a ‘Carob’ tree giving shade in the Summer. The Pool has the benefit of heat if required and is surrounded with terraces and flower borders with the added features of a built-in barbecue and sun top terrace .All rooms have Air Conditioning and free Wifi for our guests. Augusta the maid comes for approx an hour five mornings in the week and obviously longer on the changover days. Welcome pack and pool towels provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs B. Benfleet, Essex. This is by far the best appointed and most luxurious villa we have stayed in and look forward to returning in the not too distant future.

Wilkins family, Hampshire, We had the most wonderful time in your villa, the villa is beautiful,fantastic views and location, close to good beaches and shops, Augusta bless her was fantastic and a real treat to us mums. Sept 2011.

Mrs MacG. North Shields. We found the villa absolutely fabulous. It was extremely well appointed and very comfortable. We left comments in your guest book and will have no hesitation in recommending the villa widely. Augusta was very helpful and I dont think we gave her too much work to do!!

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th time we have stayed in Villa Toriba, it never disappoints. It is a really beautiful villa, with great facilities in a perfect location. It is close to numerous beaches, within a short drive of lots of towns and places of interest to visit, only 40 minutes from the airport, but of course best of all is the amazing swimming pool and villa itself. We travelled with a 5 year old and a 2 year old this time, and they didn't want to leave. We would really recommend this villa.

We stayed at this villa between 25/05/2017 and 08/06/2017 and we will definitely be returning. I, my wife and 2 x children (2 and 4 years old), mother and father in law had an amazing holiday.

The Villa is very spacious and extremely well finished. It was plenty big enough for 6 of us to stay comfortably. The swimming pool is also large, and the sounds well kept. A daily made Augusta attended each morning for general cleaning and bed making and was lovely to speak too. Jose attended to the swimming pool ensuring it was always immaculate.

The Villa is child friendly with baby gates preventing access to the swimming pool which was another bonus.

We hired a car to get around and would definitely recommend doing so especially with children. I cannot rate this villa enough. I am already looking at dates to book for next year as we are set on returning as soon as we can.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at "Toriba". I was delighted to read you enjoyed your stay at the villa and had an amazing holiday. We do not intend to put up our prices for next year and I very much look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to make a booking for 2018. I think when I previously spoke to you (prior your booking) I mentioned we do have a number of repeat family bookings - your comments are so true - thank you for an informative review and kind comments on our maid Augusta and ( pool/gardener) Jose they will be thrilled when I tell them.
