Spectacular, serene, sensational. The building and the location. Our apartment inside was beautiful and spacious and perfectly furnished, everything you need and nothing superfluous. Incredibly comfortable beds and thoughtful lighting throughout. The huge marble shower was like tropical rain. The dramatic view was mesmerizing and ever changing. From our kitchen we could see the sand dunes, the impressive view of the vast beach, the atlantic sea and the cliff. Easy to get to the immense beach from the cleverly landscaped garden and hire surf gear. Shops and pubs a short drive away. This place is special.
As a photographer, I find that the space around me really influences my work, I was intrigued to see what the Chalet would provide.
These luxurious and spacious apartments left me constantly inspired and wanting more. The first night of my trip was during Storm Aileen - an unforgettable experience watching the lightning as well as the stormy seas from the peacefulness of the living room.
The following day, the storm had subsided and I was left with constantly changing weather conditions - sunny one minute, dark skies the next. One thing that I noticed throughout the course of the changing weather was how the differences in light really reacted with the apartment. The design of this building truly is a work of art in itself.
The great locality of the Chalet means that you could find yourself in a range of different places in just a matter of minutes. A private path takes you down to the beach where you will find yourself surrounded by 3 miles of golden sand; a short drive up the coast will take you to Croyde which has a great range of pubs and cafe's and a short drive in the other direction will lead you to Braunton and Barnstaple. Knowing that everything you could possibly need is just a short distance away is very helpful.
I could write for hours about the views from the apartment - constantly changing, mesmerising and captivating are words that spring to mind but no description could do justice to witnessing them yourself.
I have no doubt in my mind that The Chalet, Saunton is going to be in high demand all year round. I'll definitely be booking up again soon.
This is a truly exceptional property. The apartment is spacious and beautifully decorated, and the quality of finishes is of the highest possible standard. The shower is huge and the kitchen is fully equipped. There are amazing views across miles of beach, and our ground floor apartment has a beautiful outdoor dining space. Surfing is steps away, two golf courses are just down the road, and there are cosy and friendly restaurants nearby. Fantastic stay.
We were lucky enough to be amongst the first guests at the amazing 'The Chalet' apartments. Just built to an exceptional standard and by that I mean high spec London not John Lewis Devon, the apartment had the most amazing views of Saunton Sands through every window. The property has its own access to the beach as well as an area to store our boards and shower outside. Saunton Sands itself really is Surfers paradise - the Golf club is less than a mile away but thats not our thing! Even on a rainy day, the atmosphere of the incoming weather meant that the TV really wasn't necessary - Go, you won't be disappointed!
