The Mediterranean feel of this pretty seaside village is the perfect setting for Sandcastles. The apartment has great sea views from the lounge and bedroom and from its own large terrace.
Approached through a wooded valley with walks alongside River Seaton, the Mount Brioni properties sit majestically looking down on the cove and sea around to Rame Head. Only minutes by car from the exciting harbour town of Looe, and with many other coastal villages in the area to explore, Sandcastles is an ideal base for short breaks or long stays. Enjoy the sound of rolling waves and the smells of the pines, as well as coastal walks and the culinary delights close by offered by Seaton Beach Cafe, The Smugglers Inn and the Blue Plate at Downderry. The Copley Arms at Hessenford, just a five minute drive away, also offers family meals, live music and quiz nights.
One of four country parks in Cornwall, Seaton Valley Countryside Park, surrounds the village up until Hessenford. The Monkey Sanctuary is only two miles away and has a fascinating collection of woolly monkeys, amongst other rescued primates. Keen golfers can take a round at Looe Golf Club or the celebrated St Mellion Golf Club or a bit of crazy golf in Looe! Beaches not to miss are Whitsand Bay and Looe Bay. Returning after 50 years, visitors are now able to take a steam train along the wonderful Looe Valley Line. Be confident of a restful holiday in this beautiful spot on a part of the Cornish coastline often overlooked.

About the location
Liskeard 9 miles.
Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a discovery centre, and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
