Small children should not be left alone on either the balcony or entrance terrace as it may be possible for a small child to climb through the railings.
The property is built on a slope and there are a number of steps to gain access so it may therefore not be suitable for guests with limited mobility.

Hi, I'm Richard from Scotland and I'm married to Birgit from Austria, we live mainly by the sea in Cornwall, UK, but also love spending time in the Austrian mountains.
We both enjoy walking, hiking, sailing, swimming, surfing, golf, tennis, skiing, snowboarding, good food/drink/atmosphere, nature and architecture/design.
We have spent much of the last 5 years renovating our Cornish home 'Porth Pennti' which overlooks Falmouth harbour and more recently a fab alpine loft apartment in the historic ski and spa town of Bad Gastein in the Austrian Alps.
We hope you enjoy Cornwall and/or Austria as much as we do.
