Located at the coastline of the beautiful fishing village St. Mawes, guests of Hotel Tresanton can discover the impressive Falmouth bay by sailing boat from May 18th until the end of September 2015. Originally created as a yachtmen´s club, Olga Polizzi, sister of Sir Rocco Forte, bought Tresanton in 1997 and spent two years redesigning and restoring today´s five-star-hotel. As St. Mawes is one of the most beautiful and safe areas for sailing and boating in Britain, and a sailing trip is nothing to be missed during a stay at Tresanton, the hotel offers the magnificent and refit eight meter classic yacht “Pinuccia”.
She was built in 1939 to race for Italy at the World Cup in Sweden. With her slender line and tall wooden mast, Pinuccia is the most beautiful boat in St. Mawes harbour. The price for a whole day sailing including picnic for two and a bottle of cool prosecco or a picnic for four and a bottle of house white wine costs 836€. The costs for a half day sailing from whether 10am to 1pm or from 2pm to 5pm is at 460€ and for an evening sail including a bottle of house wine from 5.30pm to 8.30pm at 488€. Accommodation at Hotel Tresanton starts at 250€ per night.
The style at Hotel Tresanton is an eclectic blend of old and new, reviving the casual but elegant atmosphere of a seaside retreat. The hotel is a cluster of five houses, offering 30 rooms and suites, some with their own terrace and all individually furnished with antiques and Cornish art. All rooms have magnificent sea views and some are overlooking the St. Anthony´s lighthouse. The bright and airy restaurant with its terraces overlooking the sea is well known for its fresh local produce, like fresh caught seafood. In addition to its cozy bar, Tresanton has a spacious lounge with a log burning fireplace, a private cinema, a playroom and a garden.
Hotel Endsleigh in Devon is the sister hotel of Hotel Tresanton and also belongs to Olga Polizzi, celebrated interior designer and hotelier. Both hotels are set in picture perfect surroundings, one hour drive away from each other and offer a delightful combination of British seaside chic and gentrified country idyll. Especially during spring and summer, nature lovers enjoy a colorful 200 years old garden paradise in its prime at Hotel Endsleigh.
