If you seek a room with a view then look no further than Altamira, which in Spanish means ‘High Views’.

This elegant building is set in an elevated position in a quiet location, just under a mile from Hugh Town.

The house is divided into two comfortable flats with spacious rooms and high ceilings to complement stunning views of the town and harbour.

The Ground Floor Flat contains a fitted kitchen, a panoramic lounge and sleeps six guests in one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a bunk room. There is also a private garden. 

Altamira enjoys the best of all worlds – sea views, a rural setting and close proximity to Hugh Town, which can be reached in fewer than twenty minutes via the coastal path
