The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing break, at any time of the year. It is a stunning Island with unspoilt scenery and a wealth of beautiful beaches, and fascinating attractions. For the energetic, there are plenty of activities to enjoy, including windsurfing, sailing and paragliding. And for those who wish to escape the modern world, we're sure you'll leave the Island having found exactly what you were looking for.
The minute you step on the ferry there is a sense of chilling out. For a stress free, fun family holiday the Island is popular all year round. And for those who like a physical challenge, if it's an adventure holiday you are after then look no further. With over half the Island designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a network of footpaths that stretches over 500 miles it's easy to get close to nature. Alternatively, if you are looking for somewhere to be spoilt then indulge yourself in the Isle of Wight's fine restaurants, art galleries and historic houses.
Separated by the River Medina and linked by a chain ferry, the Isle of Wight's most northerly towns of Cowes and East Cowes are steeped in maritime heritage.
Cowes is a Mecca for yachtsmen and hosts many national and international events. During the sailing season the waterfront is a kaleidoscope of colourful sails, whose focal point is the Royal Yacht Squadron. It is a historical old town, with a narrow high street, filled with a wonderful array of clothing and interior shops, restaurants and pubs which often reflect the marine environment. There is a lovely parade and beach front where you can amble along and enjoy watching the action on the water.
East Cowes is the terminus of the car and passenger ferry from Southampton. The town has a large marina, small shops, restaurants and a seafront promenade. It is also home to Queen Victoria's magnificent Osborne House.

"Beautiful West Cowes holiday flat"
This flat is perfectly situated on the (pedestrian-only) high street. It is literally steps away from all the amenities and sights. The flat is very cozy, well equipped, and makes you feel like you are on holiday. Two of the three bedrooms face the beautiful harbour, and away from any noise that might be found on the high street side. There are easy on-street parking (for residents and guests) within 5 minute walk.
