Where is Skysail?  Skysail is  situated in an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)in a fantastic elevated position on the outer peninsular of Polkirt Hill in Mevagissey hence the amazing panoramic outlook. Skysail is a fabulous new architect designed house (completed Jan 2015) with far reaching  180° coastal seaviews of Mevagissey Bay stretching away towards Fowey and Chapel Point and easy 5 minute walking distance to the bustling quintessential Mevagissey active Fishing village.  The little harbour in the village centre supports a  thriving fishing fleet and offers mooring for small yachts and leisure-craft, ferries, fishing boats and day-trippers.  Fresh fish can be bought direct from the fishermen on the quay side.

Skysail is a house of generous proportions it is built, maintained and furnished at the highest standards with your comfort and enjoyment in mind.  Books DVDs and games can be found to while away a relaxing moment.

Skysail offers spacious accommodation ideal for two families or a group of friends. Skysail is also the perfect retreat should you just wish to get away from it all.  The open plan living area opens up on to a front sea-view balcony.  There is a lawned rear garden with paved court yard and BBQ and separate lawned area in front with a sun balcony with sun loungers.   Parking for 2 cars plus a small car in the carport.  Additional cars may be parked in the road parallel with and above Polkirt Hill.
