Further details indoors

The twin bedroom is very versatile. The cabin beds fold away so you can fold the bottom bed away and keep the top bunk or vice versa. The cabin beds are of excellent quality and may be used by adults and children alike.

When both beds are folded away this makes space for a cot bed and a perfect nursery as this room is just across the hallway from the master bedroom. Themed bedding for the cot can also be provided.

NB: It is also possible to put a small cot in the master bedroom if the twin bedroom is occupied.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed. However, this bed zips and locks and can be made into 2 singles if needed. Please advise if you would like the beds to be made up as two singles when booking.

There is an additional double sofa bed in the lounge area upstairs. Bedding can be requested for this if needed.

The rear gardens are for La Casa only.

If both properties are booked (La Casa and La Casita) by the same group, then all areas are open.

About this location

The Cornwall region

The West Cornwall peninsula is at the very south western tip of mainland Britain, and an ideal location for a relaxing break. Everything the area has to offer is within a 20 minute drive including Michelin star restaurants, some of Europe's cleanest beaches, world class tourist attractions and spectacular coastal views.

West Cornwall enjoys long warm summer days and great weather all year round. This is apparent when looking at the local gardens, overflowing with tropical plants and flowers.

There are miles of country side, moorland and coastline to explore, each dotted with monuments to Cornwall throughout the ages. Walking along one of the coastal paths, its will not be long before you come accross one of the many chimney stacks of engine houses remaining from Cornwall mining heritage. There are many antiquities in the area dating from 4500BC including standing stone circles, ancient villages and other megalithic monuments.


Rivavista is a stones throw from local transport links, meaning you can leave the car behind and still explore the beautiful surrounding area. Take the train along the UK's most beautiful branch line to the nearby St. Ives and spend the day on the golden sandy beaches and visit the winding shopping streets with many excellent restaurants. St. Ives is popular amongst artists and boasts many Art Gallery's, including the world famous Tate Gallery.

On the southern side of the peninsula lies Penzance, the capital of West Cornwall. Take the helicopter or boat to the Isles of Scilly for a day trip. Why not watch a performance at the Minack theatre, carved into the cliffs at Porthcurno. Penzance overlooks St. Michaels Mount, a small island just off the beach with a large castle on top, and is the National Trusts most photographed property.

The area has hundreds of activities to keep you entertained on you holiday including a variety of watersports, boat trips, sporting activities, relaxing massages, a vibrant nightlife and days on the beach to name just a few.
