    Mr Bishop

    “The apartment was exceptionally clean and well furnished.”

    Very cosy and comfortable and well appointed. Probably the best holiday rental we have stayed in.

    Very cosy and comfortable and well appointed. Probably the best holiday rental we have stayed in. We had a problem with the shower in the main bathroom as the waste was partially blocked. I rang Sykes and it was fixed the same day whilst we were out. Very polite and helpful response and immediate solution, great service. We have booked again for the first week in December.

The property

Seaside luxury with glorious ocean views from the large balcony and open plan living room, Avalon is enviably positioned on one of the best stretches of coastline Cornwall has to offer.

Located in the premier beach resort of Praa Sands, this contemporary apartment is a hop, skip and jump from the long golden beach and is perfect for surfers, walkers and sun-seekers.

Walk from the door along the stunning coast path, swim off the white sands, tee–off at Praa Sands coastal golf course or kick back from the comfort of this sophisticated and spacious apartment and admire the seascape, spectacular sunsets or starry skies.

Avalon is located on the first floor of a prestigious development and designed with singles, couples and families in mind.

Step inside to stylish interiors with elegant design in fittings and furniture.

The open plan living room has wooden flooring, plump sofas, formal dining table, a well-equipped kitchen (with door to a utility room) and French doors to the seaward facing balcony with garden furniture for alfresco meals and idle time.

A double bedroom with a comfortable king size bed and en-suite shower room, a twin bedroom and a sleek family sized bathroom completes the accommodation.

A lazy stroll along the sea road will lead you to Praa Sands beach which operates a life guard service during the main season and there is a surf school offering kayak, surfboard and wetsuit hire.

There is a convenience store and beachside restaurant/bar but for a wider choice, head for the foodie restaurants, including that owned by celebrity chef Rick Stein, at the nearby fishing village of Porthleven.

The infamous castle topped island of St Michael’s Mount which sits off the sandy shore of Marazion is also within a short drive.

The ancient town of Penzance, widely recognised as the new food capital of Cornwall is a fifteen minute drive.

Iconic Land’s End and The Minack, an open air theatre built into the rugged cliff face, are within easy reach and well worth a visit or head to the cosmopolitan resort of St Ives for more beaches, galleries, shops, pubs and restaurants.

Avalon offers a memorable and varied holiday experience at any time of year!

About the location

PRAA SANDS

Marazion 4.5 miles ; Helston 6 miles ; Porthleven 5 miles

The village of Praa Sands sits on the south coast in between Helston and Marazion. Praa Sands is known for its mile-long sandy beach and excellent surfing conditions. There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the beach – the perfect spot for lunch with a view or sunset drinks – a Post Office and general stores, beach cafe with fish & chips, and a beach/surf shop stocked with everything you could need for a great day at the beach. Praa Sands is also home to a Golf and Country Club, from where the most wonderful sea vista can be enjoyed whilst you play. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle, the tower of which dates back to the 16th century. It is said that Pengersick is haunted, and that the ghost of a monk has been seen wandering the grounds! The house at Pengersick is rumoured to be the birth place of John Carter, the self styled King of Prussia and a tunnel which leads from the house to the beach was apparently once used by smugglers.
