This chic seaside townhouse is a stylish retreat for eight, set in pretty Portscatho and from the moment you step through the door, you'll feel the stresses and strains of everyday life just melt away. With calming tones of grey, white, sea blues and greens, as well as natural wood throughout, this is a tranquil spot that invites you to swap your stilettos for sandy bare feet and your laptop for that book you've been meaning to read for ages. Go on - you deserve it.
Living

The spacious and open-plan living area has two huge, gorgeous grey Loaf sofas on to which you can collapse after a day at the beach or out exploring. White walls complemented by a featured wall of whitewashed wood bring instant calm, whilst clever lighting, bright artwork and a stylish coffee table adds warm and colourful touches. Additionally, there's a handy study area if you need to catch up on some work or check emails adjacent to the unique glass and steel staircase.

Eating

The stunning kitchen and dining area lie to the rear of Florence and is a brilliant, sociable space for family or friends to gather and eat. The streamlined kitchen - in shades of white and dark blue - offers plenty of prep space for the pickiest Nigel or Nigella. Jam-packed with all the essentials such as a double oven, induction hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and microwave oven, it also has a host of other gadgets, so you can rustle up anything from a simple brekkie (which you can munch on the handy breakfast bar) to a lavish feast.

The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen and is a simple space. A tactile wooden table seats eight easily and floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors bring in lashings of light as do the pretty white and copper lights suspended above. The bi-fold doors can be opened fully in warmer weather, bringing the outside in, to create the perfect summer mood.

Sleeping

The four bedrooms offer peaceful, simple retreats, in which to retire at the end of a busy day exploring, or a relaxing day on the beach. Swathed in gorgeous linens and throws and decorated in simple shades of whites, soft blues and natural woods these mini havens that really evoke the soul of the sea. Two of the large double rooms, together with the twin room (perfect for the younger family members) have fabulous views to the sea whils the fourth looks out over the landscaped, terraced gardens. There is also access to a shared balcony from two of the bedrooms, ideal for a peaceful morning coffee.

Bathing

Two of the double rooms boast ensuite shower rooms, whilst the third double and the twin share a large family bathroom, complete with huge walk in shower and freestanding bath. Each has a heated rail to keep towels fluffy and warm. On the ground floor, just off the entrance hall, there is a further shower room, perfect for a quick splash after a day on the beach, or hosing down children or dogs!

Outside space

The garden at Florence is a series of lovely terraces with the most beautiful views of the south coastline, across Gerrans Bay, to The Nare Head and Gull Rock. At the top of the garden is a lovely 'studio' which has its own kitchenette and loo! On the huge decking area, there's plenty of outside seating and a charcoal barbeque for a spot of alfresco dining. Please note that due to the steep steps, care should be taken with small children at all times.

WiFi

Florence is fully WiFi ready so should you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.

Dogs

Two well behaved dogs are very welcome at Florence.

In the Area

Portscatho is a traditional fishing village, with a small harbour, on the stunning Roseland Peninsula, situated on the south coast of Cornwall. Pretty and pastoral, with hidden coves and beaches, this side of the county is much softer and more protected than its rugged neighbour the north coast.

There's so much to do in this wonderful part of Cornwall, whether it's exploring the beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan, Carne and Pendower, walking the stunning South West Coastal Path or visiting the plethora of gardens which make the most of the warmer climate - such as Trelissick Gardens or The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

With lots of great places to eat and drink, you'll be spoilt for choice. The local pub, The Plume of Feathers, is in the heart of the village, just a minutes' walk from Florence and serves great food and a large selection of drinks. The Harbour Club enjoys great views of Gerrans Bay from its large balcony and welcomes visitors for a nominal members fee. From the newly established restaurant below you can enjoy wonderful, locally produced food from the simple open grill in a bustling atmosphere, or order something to take-away and eat in the peace and quiet of Florence. The Driftwood is a Michelin-starred restaurant just a short hop away, and for something a little different head to The Hidden Hut, situated on the cliffs above Porthcurnick Beach. Just a few miles down the road, St Mawes also has a number of great restaurants to offer, including the renown Tresanton Hotel and the Idle Rocks.
