Situated on the first floor of a fully refurbished 1910's property, 'Argel Lowen' (Cornish for happy retreat) combines contemporary features with stunning sea views, and makes an ideal base for both families and couples.
With arguably the best views of Mevagissey, you have the best of both worlds – you can watch the fishing boats coming and going in the harbour below whilst enjoying the peaceful clifftop location away from the noise and bustle of the port. And it’s just five minutes walk downhill to the fabulous restaurants and shops. Moreover, with parking spaces at a premium here, you will be the envy of many with your own space at the front of the building.
French doors open out onto an easterly-facing balcony from which you’ll be able to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or drinks as you take in the amazing 180 degree panoramic view of sea, village, harbour and Heligan Gardens valley. The patio area to the back, belonging to Argel Lowen, is ideal for sunbathing and alfresco dining. There is a large shared lawn area at the rear.
The hallway, with plenty of storage and hanging space, leads to the fully equipped contemporary kitchen with breakfast bar, electric cooker, hob and grill, fridge, microwave, integrated dishwasher, washing-machine & tumble dryer. Open plan living / dining area with oak dining table and chairs, new modern large sofa and other arm chairs.
The apartment is warm, double glazed, and well equipped with free Wifi; freeview TV; DVD player; Hi-Fi system with DAB radio, CD player, compatible with iPod, iPhone and AUX connection. There are also books, DVDs and board games. The apartment has 2 very comfortable bedrooms - the master bedroom has a double divan bed with new deluxe pocket sprung mattress, brown leather padded headboard, built-in double walnut wardrobe with full length mirrors, chest of drawers and bedside tables and lamps. Large patio doors lead out from the bedroom to the patio area. There is an en-suite bathroom with bath, shower, toilet, basin and bathroom cabinets, electric shaver point and towel rail. The second bedroom is furnished with twin single beds, a built-in wardrobe with full length mirror and cupboard. It has an ensuite luxury shower room with shower cubicle, toilet, mirrored cupboards, heated towel rail, basin and shaver point.

The apartment is fantastic! Immaculately clean, well-furnished and as for “That view!” Wow!
Well this has been a truly wonderful holiday, quite the best we have had in the UK for some time, with glorious weather and breakfast on the balcony taking in the stunning view.
The owners have thought of everything to make the apartment comfortable and homely. It lacks for nothing and we have loved every minute.
Beautifully presented and equipped flat. The view was even better than anticipated and a perfect spot to walk the various coastal paths. We are already planning our next visit.
