We used to own a chalet on 2nd avenue some 25 years ago and I have been wanting to come back ever since. In those days, electricity hadn't reached the 2nd Avenue frontier and the only power we possessed was in the form of a car battery to power the TV and a rat-chewed generator (I was interested to see the old generator plinth complete with anti-theft device at the rear of this chalet) to power the shed-based fridge! I am pleased to say that progression has occurred since these (literally) dark days.
As someone with a soft spot for Fitties, I have to say this is a lovely chalet with lots of the original charm and plenty of home-comforts too. Compared to our chalet of old, this place is positively palatial. The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of bedding provided and the shower was always hot. The garden is enormous and the kids really enjoyed the swings. It's close to the beach (1 minute away) and the neighbors were friendly.
It's a real shame that the old amusements/shops etc down towards the yacht club are no longer in existence. It actually made me quite sad that it's now all closed (the old amusements are now used to store linen for the caravan park and the roller rink is a car park). I suppose the Havens of the world have to think about profits rather than memories. I'd like to think they'd do something with that end of the park at some point.
Fitties has a very particular type of charm. It's not Center Parcs and nor should it be. If you like the beach, getting up early, the English seaside and the simpler things in life, then you'll love it here. Fitties will always be close to my heart and this stay has re-enforced my love of the place.
