Fall in love with this beautifully stylish Victorian villa in one of Cornwall’s most sought-after dream destinations.

With extraordinary views across the estuary, a suntrap roof terrace from which to enjoy them and a chic yet thoroughly homely atmosphere, La Folie more than delivers on luxury and escapism. Step inside and discover a light and bright, beautifully furnished interior with all the home comforts you could ask for.

Three gorgeous bedrooms, a fabulous kitchen/diner, two bathrooms and a lovely large living room are all laid out over the home’s four floors, providing ample space for guest parties of six. Bifold doors from the kitchen/diner lead out to a walled courtyard that has an outdoor furniture set and from here, you can walk up to the roof terrace to unwind in the sunshine and enjoy those incredible sea and estuary views.

Fowey is a dream destination on Cornwall’s south coast. Famed for its connection to Daphne du Maurier and its featuring in some of her best-known novels, this exceptionally pretty maritime town with its beautiful beaches and unique atmosphere is the perfect place for relaxing coastal breaks. Just 50 yards from La Folie is Whitehouse Beach - a tidal beach with its newly refurbished 1920's children's sea pool (built on the rocks alongside the beach and next to the Polruan Ferry slip), which is a lovely spot for a paddle or a swim. The beach is also a good place to launch a kayak or SUP (It is close to the harbour and its traffic however so may not be suitable for beginners).
