The property

Kick off your shoes and feel the sand beneath your feet within seconds from this former
fisherman's net-loft, situated beside the sea wall with bewitching, uninterrupted sea views, in the
almost secret fishing port of Porthleven. Few properties boast such an idyllic setting, within easy
access of favoured hot spot destinations of west Cornwall.
A perfect haven for honeymooners
and couples seeking a romantic break, this tasteful conversion encompasses views of azure
glistening seas in the summer and white tousled surf during the colder months. With reverse interior
of ground floor en-suite bedroom and first floor open-plan living room and kitchen area (with a
combi microwave/four ring hob) Chy An Mor is contemporary in style and décor, comfortably
furnished with glazed doors leading onto a glassed balcony overlooking the water and horizon
beyond. There is also a large private terrace on the cliff-top offering choices of where to sit to soak
up the views from this exceptional location.
Tide permitting, walk the 3 mile stretch of sand and
shingle at Porthleven beach to Loe Bar and Penrose Estate, or alternatively discover the coastal
footpath. The harbour is separated from the beach by the granite pier and the village has gift shops
and galleries to peruse and pubs and restaurants to sample. The beach at Praa Sands is
spectacular or try the golf course. The ancient market town of Helston is just 3 miles away and
Marazion, with its long sandy beach and action-packed water-sport entertainment, is within 20 minutes drive. Experience the majestic St Michael's Mount, a mystical part-time island which
protrudes from the glistening sea.
At high tide take the ferry across to the tiny harbour or enjoy
the adventure by foot and walk the narrow cobbled causeway at low water. Once there enjoy
refreshment from the cafe and restaurant. Continue around the coast and discover bustling
Penzance and en-route to Land's End, the drama and romance of the open-air Minack Theatre,
cut from the granite cliff face and jutting precariously seawards, is a must-see location. There is
private parking for one car.
