Sea views do not come better than those from this superb apartment perched high on the cliffs above the ancient fishing port of Mevagissey, where narrow streets wind between fishermen's cottages, old smugglers' haunts and seaside shops. Marine Point offers spacious contemporary accommodation with 180 degree uninterrupted views from Gribbin Head to Chapel Point. Smart TVs, Superfast WiFi, Cornish artwork, oak woodwork and limestone tiling reflect the exemplary quality of this property. Sit and unwind on the glass-sided balcony, with grandstand views of the boats in the harbour. Stroll down to the village where restaurants rub shoulders with centuries-old pubs, tea-rooms serve delicious Cornish cream teas, and fresh mackerel, crab and lobster can often be bought straight from the boats.
Marine Point is all on one level inside, accessed down just five steps from the shared entrance hall where parking is just outside, so perfect for anyone with limited mobility. The L-shaped sitting/dining-room has ultra comfortable cream leather sofas and a glass dining-table set before the balcony doors so every meal, whether inside or out, is enjoyed with the fabulous sea and harbour views. All three bedrooms have luxurious pocket sprung mattresses and fine linens, TVs and iPod docks. The double bedroom has an en suite shower-room and the twin and single bedrooms share the bathroom with its whirlpool bath, with fluffy bathrobes and toiletries also thoughtfully provided. Exploring from here is easy, with Portmellon beach a 10 minute walk away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan just outside the village. The Eden Project and historic Charlestown harbour, home to several tall ships, are easily reached by car. Energetic visitors will love walking the coastal footpath which passes the front door, and the cycle routes which wind through nearby valleys.
