Map showing The French House

The French House is a spacious holiday home at Porthcurno, near Penzance. Just 8 minutes walk from the spectacular Minack Theatre cut into the cliffs. The house sleeps 8 or 9 in five bedrooms.

Porthcurno is one of Cornwall’s most beautiful locations, the spectacular beach boasting white sand, turquoise blue sea and occasionally, visiting dolphins and basking sharks. The renowned Minack Theatre, perched high on the cliffs, offers performances in high season, whatever the weather, and story telling for children included in the price during August. The French House, in the heart of the village, is a short walk from the beach, cliff paths, pub and village shop and post office.
