Wow, wow, wow. Stylish well equipped apartment. Very clean, the cleanest I've stayed in. Cosy living area with an ever changing view of the harbour. A really comfortable bed. Di and Nige fabulous hosts. Refreshing walk back to the apartment will burn off the holiday excess, especially the Salcombe Ice Cream. Parking not a problem, Di moved her car and we parked in her spot, then left the car there for the duration of our stay as we did the train, bus, boat trip to Paignton-Totnes-Dartmouth. A must, walk to the castle and catch the taxi boat back to the harbour, also the boat to Dittisum. I will be back and can highly recommend. Oh, nearly forgot....there was a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us in the apartment. Simply fabulous darling.
Avanti has to be the best place to stay in Dartmouth. Extremely clean, modern, spacious with a well equipped kitchen which includes every possible utensil needed and a full size fridge/freezer.
. Di thinks of everything to make your stay superb from tea, coffee, wine crisps etc on arrival to walking folders with maps you can take out with you.Diane knows everything about Dartmouth so is a wealth of knowledge.
The most important thing to me whilst staying away from home is a comfy bed. I was not disappointed with the bed at avanti, so hard to get out of in the morning!
The views from the apartment are totally amazing. Trust me you will not be disappointed with your stay at Avanti.
Wonderful, light, airy and spacious apartment perfectly placed for a stroll into Dartmouth. Clean, modern and with wonderful views. Di is a warm and welcoming host and the goodies on arrival lovely. We've had a perfect week here despite mixed weather and we would love to come back one day. Would recommend Greenway and Coleton Fishacre - we walked to both- challenging but the views were worth it and a trip on a ferry/boat anywhere is a must. Floating Bridge pub is lovely, especially on a sunny day, and the food is great.
Avanti is a class property on the hillside above Dartmouth town and harbour.
Di is a super host, with great local knowledge and info re where to visit and where to eat.
The property itself oozes class with all mod cons and everything you would want from a home from home.
The outside patio area was great for relaxing and sunbathing on, and for enjoying lazy breakfasts, or an al fresco dinner.
We were lucky, we had great weather for our weeks stay.
The apartment lies above the street and there are 4 flights of steps to get up,to it.
Parking is available on the street, but you may have a short walk back to the apartment. You also find you have to drive half on the footpath to get down the street. Unbelievably the road is two way, so don't be surprised to see a car coming towards you, just don't panic!!!! Lots of the roads in the area are very narrow with passing places on them, as I said, don't panic, local drivers are very courteous.
The walk to/from town is hilly and may be difficult for older people or anyone with asthma or heart conditions.
Taxis are available locally and it will only cost £3.30 to/from the town incl,pick up.
Would thoroughly recommend Avanti as a holiday apartment, and Dartmouth as a holiday destination.
A lovely apartment, friendly welcome and helpful information. Nice walking distance into Dartmouth town. Altogether a lovely few days away.
