Hotel Tresanton: Coastal cool
Why here? the village of st mawes on the wild Roseland peninsula is quintessential Cornwall – pretty whitewashed cottages nestle alongside this waterfront hotel. Renowned hotelier Olga Polizzi (sister of Rocco Forte) has created a comfy retreat – all nautical fabrics, sea views, al fresco dining and strolls on the beach.
The experience Did we mention the art? Cornwall’s impressive family of artists is well represented – originals by Patrick heron, Barbara hepworth and stanhope Forbes give you reason to linger. And the all-white restaurant has creations of its own – fresh fish and organic, seasonal veg are menu staples.
Luxx loves Pinuccia is the hotel’s 15-metre classic racing yacht. Ask the skipper for a tour of Falmouth Bay and a cruise along the picturesque helford River (from £330).
