    Rental Home – 
    7 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14
    Sophie's Villa is a detached and extremely spacious grand period house which comfortably sleeps 14 set in its own landscaped gardens of just under an acre with sea views over Torbay.

    The house is an excellent venue for extended (or combined) family holidays and weekend get togethers and celebrations, for 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, girls weekends, murder mystery events, and large groups of ramblers or friends. We also welcome responsible hen...
