Style Breezy beach house
Setting Chocolate-box Cornish village
Situated on Cornwall’s often-overlooked southern coast, between picturesque St Mawes and the rolling fields spliced with public footpaths leading to Falmouth. A former yachting club, Hotel Tresanton was built from a cluster of old houses in the Fifties, hence its higgledy-piggledy levels and port-town setting. Since the 1999 reopening, after an extensive refurbishment, the hotel reflects the style credentials of owner Olga Polizzi and her A-list clientele.
