Just look at the colour of the water in the above aerial shot and that explains why thousands upon thousands of holiday makers visit St Ives and if you were born in St Ives you most likely want to stay there.
Stunning scenery, a choice of outstanding beautiful beaches from neighbouring Carbis Bay to St Ives are mixed with a maze of quirky cobbled streets and winding lanes littered with shops, boutiques, top class restaurants and of course places to buy your Cornish Pasty.
With property prices having recently rocketed in this area over the past year, as the views are sought after like gold dust, prices on the harbour front for one bed apartments can be from £450,000. However if you are prepared to buy something nearer the top of town and have a few minutes walk you can still snap up some bargains. Have a look at our properties to see what we have available............
A great part of St Ives is the art, with the well known Tate Gallery setting the tone along Porthminster Beach. Artists are attracted to St Ives simply because of the ample light that bounces off the surroundings. Many artists show off their work in the shops and galleries.
The locals will ask you "Do you live upalong or downalong" in St Ives.............
