Waking to the sound of waves crashing below, tucking into lunch on the sweeping terrace and diving headfirst into the heated swimming pool. At the strikingly designed property Polventon, every day feels picture postcard special.
Built by Rick Stein’s father just before the start of WWII, this imposing Art Deco build stands proud over Mother Ivey’s Bay. Capture the changing hues of the sea from the balcony that looks out across the tides, take a morning dip in the outdoor heated pool or head down to shore and cast a line into the same inky blue that inspired Rick Stein’s taste for seafood. With enough room for up to nine guests across three floors of light, spacious and well thought through design, Polventon makes a great base for big family get-togethers right by the sea. Pull up a chair to alfresco lunches made in homage to Rick, looking out over spacious lawns. When night falls bring your gaggle together for board games and laughter with a wave-crested backdrop. This is one unique property set to make yours one unique stay away.Accessibility
