Another brilliant week at Upper Alvista

We have just returned from our holiday at Upper Alvista Torquay, the third time we have stayed in this property. The whole experience was again brilliant - the apartment is excellent and the owner is very obliging. My father said he could quite happily live in the apartment - proving that it really is spacious and clean and well equipped. Thank you for another good holiday!!

Upper Alvista

We booked Upper Alvista as a late deal, reduced rate with Blue Chip holidays. The booking process was unbelievably easy. The property was lovely, ideally situated, with sea views and clean. All the equipment needed was available.We had a fabulous holiday, truly memorable, with so much in the area for the children to do and a comfortable base to return to after a long day out and about. We loved walking into Torquay in the evenings and having an evening meal.I loved the turret window in the master bedroom, bathed in sunlight in the mornings, ideal place to sit for the first cuppa of the day!!The whole holiday experience was perfect, seamless booking process, fantastic property, great location and no problems whatsoever.Thanks a lot.

Upper Alvista

We had a truly wonderful holiday! The views from the balcony were beautiful and the gardens were delightful. The accommodation was first class and spacious and Lawrence was the perfect host. Our daughter loved the little dog and we were truly very lucky with the Easter weather. We would certainly recommend the apartment- we even had some wonderful photographs taken by Lawrence as a special birthday treat and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him!

Really enjoyed our short break to Torquay. The property was perfect for our requirements and Lawrence the owner could not have been more helpful. Travelling with an 8 month old can be stressful so we really appreciated the baby friendly nature of the apartment.We would definitely stay again!

Excellent accommodation in a beautiful location

We had a wonderful weeks holiday with friends staying in this beautiful property. The view is amazing and the location is excellent being just a nice walk out of town so quiet but close enough to walk in and enjoy Torquay. The layout and facilities are excellent and the bedroom with the turret window is a wonderful place to sit and relax. We will definitely be staying again soon.
