Situated in the centre of Brixham, with fabulous views over the harbour and out to sea, Le Voir sleeps up to 7 guests and is a modern, detached, 'upside down' house tucked in the medley of houses overlooking the water.
It is set 20 yards (7 shallow steps) from the lane and there is unloading room outside, in addition to garage parking 200 metres away.
The property also has its own enclosed, part-walled, paved garden area with lovely views from a decked section.
An open-plan living and dining room is accessible via 6 steps to the front door. Guests can watch boats to and fro across the harbour, through the large sliding doors which lead to a majestic width-of-house balcony. From here visitors can relax on the plush cushioned bench whilst watching the azure waters, and even prop up the garden table in anticipation of a cream tea.
The living room itself boasts a white cushioned corner sofa, which is complemented by nautical blue touches, in addition to an electric fire in the dining room area, a TV and a DVD player for plentiful entertainment. Natural light floods the spacious room from its picture windows, making for beautiful sunset dinners at the large pine dining table. Thanks to the clear screen balcony, the views from this part of the house are simply cinematic.
Elegant interiors continue into the neatly fitted kitchen, which is fitted with a dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob and electric oven. Practical and pretty, this is a perfect space for preparing self-catering meals.
The property also boasts a smart bathroom suite, which has a luxurious wooden clad effect and is complete with a separate shower. This finish flows through into the spacious master bedroom, which is dressed in beautiful stone colours and is fitted with a double bed, wardrobes, drawers and a television.
Downstairs to the lower floor, lies another bright double bedroom (5' bed) which is decorated in a nautical airy blue finish with colourful artwork. Across the hallway is a 3rd spacious bedroom, ideal for children, fitted with a single bed and a double bed, in addition to a lovely little alcove shelf for stocking trinkets and books.
In between both of these bedrooms is a second sunny bathroom suite on this lower ground floor level, fitted with a bath and hand-shower, hand basin and WC.
There is also access from the double bedroom to a very low-ceiling utility area (including a washing machine, tumble dryer and chest freezer) and there is even useful storage room for seafaring paraphernalia such as wetsuits in here!
Parking ~ Brixham is a hilly fishing town and the old quarter in which Hillview is situated was built long before cars graced the area. The garage is up the hill from the house, in a garage area beyond Harbour View Close (off Ropewalk Hill).
Location ~ This modernised holiday cottage is within walking distance of the harbour front and Brixham's beautiful amenities.
The harbour itself offers a fascinating seaside stroll, as home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the country, it is fit to burst with bobbing fishing boats. The harbour town' fish auction also ensures that guests have plenty of home-cooking opportunities, and guests can sample freshly caught seafood in one of the town's many excellent restaurants.
Brixham Harbour Gardens offer an unspoiled idyll in which to relax, and the delights of Paignton and Torquay are but a car or bus ride away.
There are also two public swimming pools in Brixham; Shoalstone Sea Water Pool along Berry Head Road and the Admiral Indoor Swimming Centre.

Lovely property, perfect location Mrs Joanne Ford - 9th July 2018
Excellent! Lovely place, great view!Natalie, Sheffield - 1st May 2016
A great property with everything we needed for a brilliant weekend in Brixham. The view is especially good, and we massively enjoyed watching the busy harbour from the comfy living room. Le Voir is really conveniently located too, 106 steps down to Brixham harbour (they're a bit more difficult going up, but not too bad). The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms (very nice to have separate bathrooms for each of the couples staying) were spotless. Despite the cold weather, the house was really warm and that was very welcomed after our hikes around the nature reserve. A generous welcome pack included fresh milk, tea, coffee, Elderflower Bubbly and a Chocolate cake!Matthew from Cardiff - 1st March 2016
What a fabulous week we had in this wonderfully situated house.Just the two of us and so only used the upstairs facilities. The sun shone all week. The balcony overlooking the harbour is great for having breakfast alfresco, although its in the shade from about 2pm. There are 113 steps down to the harbour front, easy going down, but just take your time walking back up. Booked this as a last minute break and Sue from Owners Direct ( not used this company before) was very, very helpful and friendly. We received all instructions straight after payment, very thorough details on how to find the house and garage. To have a garage available in this area is just great, as parking is a nightmare. Put the car in and forget about it. Great relaxing holiday in beautiful Brixham.Jackie Harrison from Northampton - 1st July 2015
Quick weekend break. Loved the house - wonderful views!Had one of the best Italians ever in Bacco's in town, fish & chips to die for in Simply Fish and fun night in Ernie Listers listening to a great duo and encouraged to join in with the bongos! Farmers market Sunday morning for fresh fish, pasties and scones to take home. Look forward to returning soon!John & Sue King - Buckinghamshire - 8th March 2015

What a wonderful relaxing week we had. Poppy our dog had a wonderful time and was extremely well-behaved! The accommodation was lovely and the views were awesome :-)No need to watch the TV as the busy harbour had so much going on!We would recommend you try out othe poopdeck restaurant as all our meals were fantastic. Access to many places is really great from here! So easy! And to top off the whole holiday the weather was very kind to us! We would most definitely recommend our friends to come. Many thanks!Husk-Farley Family - South Gloucestershire - 22nd August 2014
