“Stunning chalet in a stunning location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We looked at many chalets at Rivier Towans and kept coming back to Porthia becuase of the fantastic decor. The furniture is top quality and bathrooms and kitchen are finished to a high standard. The showers were fantastic which was a treat after a cold surf! The weather was cold but the chalet was very warm and cosy.
Some may prefer a more traditional chalet but with children, modern comforts are a essential and this made the holiday very pleasant
Porthia is set back from the beach, situated near the entrance and we would have prefered to have been closer to the beach but it's literally a 5 minute walk and I'm sure the price would be alot more if it was closer and had a sea view. There is a childresn play area 2 minutes away.
You will not go wrong with this chalet, it has to be one of the best on the site and I would highly recommend it.
We'll be back next year!

“Book now - superb holiday home in stunningly beautiful location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

We have rented this gorgeous chalet on several occasions over the last couple of years and cannot recommend it highly enough! It is immaculate and beautifully done out throughout. A very posh home from home, where everything you would want or need on a family holiday has been carefully considered.
Porthia is tucked away in a beautiful little spot 5 mins walk from the stunning St. Ives Bay where miles of sandy white beaches awaits. There are so many brilliant places to visit in the surrounding area including St. Ives, Newquay, St. Micheal's Mount and Land's End.
We are already booked up for next year and can't wait to go back!
