L’EcluseA prime waterfront apartment with relaxing views across Port Pendennis Marina. The central location is peaceful yet just a few steps from Events Square and the town centre, and it benefits from reserved parking.
L’Ecluse is a wonderful, two bedroom, ground floor apartment set in a stunning purpose built complex within the private Port Pendennis Marina Village in central Falmouth. Designed by Peter de Savary and modelled on the picture-perfect beauty spot of Port Grimaud near St Tropez, Port Pendennis offers a timeless scene – pastel painted townhouses huddled around the bobbing boats of the inner yacht basin create an idyllic backdrop. With picturesque views of the yacht basin, this spacious apartment provides up to four guests with a truly authentic coastal holiday and suits those looking for a traditional style property.
Stepping into the apartment guests are instantly greeted by a bright and welcoming hallway. With fresh, neutral walls and a pop of colour from the blue carpet, this space is light and spacious. Throughout this apartment, there is a selection of beautiful, coastal artwork. This, paired with the hints of blue are a subtle reminder of the truly magical setting of this property.
The main living area is positioned towards the rear of the apartment boasting tremendous views over Falmouth Marina and access to the idyllic wrap-around balcony. Guests can feel right at home within this space, with plenty of seating to settle down and relax in front of the TV. Turn on the subtle lamp lights and close the blackout curtains and this room becomes a cosy and welcoming space. If the warmer weather is calling for time to be spent outside, then guests can throw open both sets of double doors and enjoy a wonderful evening drink, soaking in the last of the day’s sun and listening to the boats gently bobbing in the water from the stunning balcony. There is additional seating and only a stone’s throw from the water, guests can really make the most of this fabulous coastal escape.
The kitchen area is accessed through a set of double doors from the living room and also separately from the hallway. This is a really modern space with clean and contemporary units. Sharing this space with the elegant dining area where there is a large table and six chairs, this room is the perfect host for wonderful nights in, sharing a delicious meal and quality time with loved ones. Guests can relax and enjoy their meal together with the stunning views as a backdrop to a truly memorable evening. The kitchen comes complete with an electric oven, hob, microwave and a dishwasher to cater for all the home comforts.
The master bedroom is a fantastic size with fresh white walls and hints of cool, calming blues. This room has a double bed and a separate single and has a really opulent and relaxing feel. The floral soft furnishings and crisp white bed linen are an elegant match and ensure a comfortable and relaxing night sleep. There is a quirky little seating area within this room, positioned in front of the window, taking in the views and providing a beautifully bright reading spot. There is a second, large built in wardrobe and a separate dressing table. This room also comes complete with an en-suite shower room. Decorated in the same colours, this space is light and refreshing. Ideal for coming back to after a day at the beach and enjoying a relaxing hot shower! There is also a WC and wash basin.
The second bedroom has a very elegant and warm feel. A delightfully tranquil space to settle down for the night and relax on the king size bed. This room has been cleverly divided into two spaces, with the sleeping area subtly separate to the dressing area via a small archway. The large window is positioned within the dressing area and complete with a dressing table, this is the perfect spot to get ready for the day in the bright Cornish sunlight. Alternatively, a lovely spot to find some peace and quiet and enjoy a morning coffee ahead of a day of exploring. The sleeping area has two bedside tables with lamps so if guests wish to cosy up and read a book, this is the ideal spot! There is plenty of storage space within the master bedroom, with a large chest of drawers and built in wardrobe.
The family bathroom is positioned opposite the bedrooms and has a bath, WC and basin. Decorated in slightly warmer tones, guests could happily end their day with a relaxing hot bath before settling down for the night.
Port Pendennis is situated within the heart of Falmouth. Guests need just to take a short stroll to Events Square where the famous oyster festival takes place in October each year. Or head to Rick Stein’s for champagne and oysters or possibly a warming fish and chips to take back to the balcony. With one of the deepest natural harbours on the doorstep, Falmouth Harbour, guests can easily take to the water, with a fantastic range of ways to explore the breathtaking surroundings. Falmouth has plenty to offer guests looking for a relaxing, interesting Cornish experience. Packed with plenty of boutique shops, galleries and restaurants, there’s so much to do.
L’Ecluse is the perfect spot to experience all of this and more! A truly magical place to unwind and take a break from normality, enjoying unbeatable marina views and experiencing an unforgettable Cornish break!
