Stunning and luxurious, La Folie is a spacious Victorian town house located in the heart of Fowey on the principal waterfront road a few minutes walk from town, a few minutes from the nearest beach (White House) and 8 min walk to enchanting Readymoney Cove. Set on four floors with two twin rooms, one double and two bathrooms, the house has been refurbished with elements of the contemporary interior whilst retaining many original features such as decorative fireplaces and a pretty ironwork balcony. The beautiful contemporary kitchen/diner (Beautiful Kitchens Magazine June 2010) is fully equipped and also includes flat screen TV and Rayburn.
Whatever the season, the first floor living room is the perfect place to relax on the comfy leather sofa, whilst enjoying beautiful views of the harbour. Or take your drinks out onto the extensive decked roof terrace of wood, glass and stainless steel and just gaze out to sea.
