the idyllic holiday place

This is our fourth visit to Upper Saltings and, frankly, having “discovered” it about 10 years ago, it would be very difficult to come to St Ives and NOT to stay here! The apartment is a second floor, converted sail loft with wonderful views across Porthmeor Beach and over the Atlantic Ocean. Architecturally, the place is just stunning; it’s full of beautiful art and equipped with everything one might need for the perfect holiday. To some extent, we tend to “do our things” during the day and then take turns to cook and relax in the evenings around the huge dining table. Even though we’re so familiar with the place, it still takes our breath away each time we arrive and are hit by the sight of the turquoise sea as we enter the main living space.
Purely on grounds of expense, I suspect that this might be our last holiday here – but the memories will live on regardless!
