Plus round every corner you get a new unspoilt view of the rocky coastline and occasional pocket sandy beach below the cliffs. Ideal for those who choose to hike as well as those who prefer a less challenging way of exploring the countryside.
Historical sites and National Trust properties and gardens abound. Explore the many quaint villages, each different from the next. Visit an ancient tin mine. Attend a theatre performance at the open air Minack theatre - carved into the rocky cliffs overlooking the English Channel.
Browse the many art exhibitions and galleries or create one of your own masterpieces incorporating the palm trees, golden sands and breathtaking turquoise water.

"Great place and as described in advert"
Very seldom is a property as great as it is described but this property was everything and more. The views were spectacular, the house was spotless, warm, spacious and friendly. There was a good info booklet at the house describing the best eating places, with a variety of places to visit with clear directions.
The only minus was there was no washing machine to be found. Made it a bit hard as we had travelled from overseas to this property.
My rating would have been excellent except for this one point.

"Amazing views over Carbis Bay make Michel a memorable place to stay."
Michel is a very homely place to spend a holiday with fantastic views over the bay from the living room and main bedroom. The 3 bedrooms are very generous in size and there are 2 reasonable sized bathrooms. Some of the kitchen utensils are a little dated but perfectly usable. All electrical appliances are newer. We had a problem with the kettle but once reported the kettle was replaced within a few hours.
Despite mixed weather we had a very enjoyable stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this property to others.
