We received a very warm welcome from Julia who introduced us to our temporary home which was charming, spotlessly clean and included everything we needed - together with a wonderful art display! The house is very central, just a five minute walk from the shops, bars and restaurants in Mevagissey. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely stay in a comfortable property

5 of 5
This is a very clean and comfortable property . Nothing is too much trouble for the owners . There is nothing extra you will need . Easy access to Falmouth . It is downhill going but uphill coming back . Taxis from town were only £3.20 if you don't fancy the walk back !
