Torbay (Torquay, Paignton and Brixham)
The Torbay region of South Devon, commonly referred to as 'The English Riviera', contains the delightful towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham; the setting for many of Agatha Christie's books. The area has charmed many other creative and prestigious visitors into prolonged occupancies right back to the 19th century, from Charles Darwin and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, to writers Rudyard Kipling, Flora Thompson and Charles Kingsley.
Torquay, with its glorious arching sandy beach bay that leads onto the delightful marina at the foot of the town centre, is every bit the centrepiece to one of the UK's most visited holiday regions. The town caters for all ages as it is home to top family attractions, award winning restaurants from celebrity chefs, a host of water sports and a range of bars and nightclubs.
Brixham, with its history of pirates and smugglers, remains a busy fishing town. The connections to the sea influence all aspects of life in the town with its busy harbour providing the many high quality seafood restaurants.
Much like Torquay, Paignton is another tourist magnet with blue flag sandy beaches, a variety of family attractions that includes world famous Paignton Zoo, a fabulous Victorian Pier and an 18th century harbour that runs many fishing trips and boat tours.
The range of property available in Torbay is much the same as other sea side resort towns Dawlish and Teignmouth, the staple market for Devon Rose, so we have been able to transfer our knowledge of managing properties into the English Riviera with ease.
