We love Looe so much to do, beautiful walks, nice pubs and restaurants and plenty of caf?s. Favourite place is Daisy's cafe fantastic breakfast, or just pop in for a coffee and a piece of cake. Best restaurant for us is the smugglers cote food is excellent. The apartment is open plan nice and clean and state of the art appliances, including a dishwasher and washing machine, the little touches of tea, milk and biscuits was a nice touch. We walked from looe to polperro which was about 5 miles a lovely walk visited varies shops once there also got the boat back which was something different, another day we walked the coastline to Merendreath beach this was about 2 miles we visited the black rock cafe I would recommend a visit there nice coffee and cake, all in all a lovely week of pure indulgence we had the perfect week and yes we would love to stay in the apartment again and I'm sure we will be back xxx

fantastic place to stay
clean and well equipped although the lack of WIFI is a bit of a problem in this day and age. Looe by its very nature is hilly so lots of exercise to work off the extra calories from all the good food to be had in the local eateries. Parking is very limited at the property (1 hour) the local car park in Mill Pool is ?38 (ish) for the week and only a short, but up hill walk from the chalet. The view from the balcony is fantastic and all in all the place is wonderful. We hope to book again in the future.

Good but limited appeal
No parking by the bungalow at all, from 1st May to 30th September this is a double yellow no parking zone. Access is, as described, down very steep shallow steps, and only accessible from the back road, nothing from the main riverside road and you need to walk up a relatively steep hill to get to North Road where the entrance is located. Lovely bungalow and very modern but no Wi-Fi which is vital when trying to research places to visit, opening times and costs etc. No bedroom curtains to shut out the early dawn. Brilliant views over the harbour and the bungalow is well equipped. Would we stay there again, possibly not as husband has chronic asthma and this made for difficulties when going out and about on foot.

A modern, clean, comfortable property with all of Looe to explore close by.
