Tranquility is a beautifully appointed south-facing apartment recently completed. The interior design is a wow! It has amazing, stunning panoramic views across the main and most scenic part of Poole Harbour. An ideal height (fourth floor) to make the most of the view.The tranquility offered together with contemporary decor and the views are unequalled. This is a unique and quality apartment.
A short walk to Poole Quay and the many fabulous restaurants and bars. Make sure you book the Guildhall Tavern - Michelin Standard French food at reasonable prices. Severine and Frederic (owners) are so friendly and helpful. Take a boat ride from the Quay around the islands or to Brownsea Island and nature watch or to Swanage. Watch the fishermen land or just sit and have a drink and people watch.
Water sports are popular around the harbour. There is also a whole variety of other tourist attractions.
Sit on Tranquility's south-facing bacony, savour the islands, dine al fresco and enjoy the sunset and tranquility. Photos taken by me and don't do justice.
