A group of four stayed in the Torre house for one week in mid-October. The location is gorgeous and the house we stayed in was quite lovely. We each had private bedrooms. The bathrooms were very well appointed with excellent water pressure in the shower, nice sink, good lighting and a complimentary hairdryer and lovely towels. The beds had nice linens and the rooms were very spacious with plenty of storage. The windows however do not have screens so whats ever outside comes inside at night. You can close the wooden shutters but that keeps out all light but it does help keeping out the bugs. I would bring some kind of bug repellent as the weather was warm and we did get bug bites. Don't let that little detail get in the way of your lovely visit. The property has a common living room with a ipad for guest use. The internet service was poor. We had intermittent service in the living room but could not get service in our house at all. Sometimes we sat out in the courtyard to get service. We had a full kitchen so we shopped locally and cooked many of our meals. One night we had dinner in the main dining room - which is quite charming but the food was so-so. I'd recommend going out to local restaurants. The stairs in our house were quite steep - anyone with any mobility issues would have a challenge climbing even the first flight. As long as you know that going in the space is very comfortable. There is a very unusual swimming pool on the property and if you don't mind jumping in with the frogs and lily pads you'll be fine. They charge you extra to use the pool - I think they should eliminate this extra charge This would be a great place for a family reunion, friends gathering and large group get together -that said if the group is going to party all the other guests will hear the party loud and clear. I would recommend the owners/host set up a complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoons in the courtyard, and maybe leave a basket of fruit/breads bottle of wine when guests arrive. Also, check out your door key when you arrive to make sure your keys work with ease. We struggled with our entry door which I'm sure could be fixed with an adjustment.
