Olga Polizzi has bought the large garden directly below Hotel Tresanton and is transforming it into a Mediterranean style Beach Club set just above the waterline. A place to relax, the breezy private terraces will have a Juice Café with cold-pressed juices, coffee, tea and snacks. It’s a sun soaked oasis for lounging, dreaming, stargazing and listening to the sound of the waves.
I am continually upgrading, rethinking the design, buying good local art and interesting objects so that Tresanton keeps evolving and keeps a fresh feel. This year we have enlarged and redesigned six bathrooms so that they all have free standing showers as well as baths. I have gone back to a softer tongue and groove feel mixed with small matt marble tiles so as to give the bathrooms a softer look in keeping with their location.
The most exciting and interesting development this year is our new Beach Club launching in June. It is a large garden, (for this small village) right in front of Tresanton on a slope going down to the rocks (in the 60’s it belonged to the hotel).
It is on three levels, a level practically on the sea which is narrow and will have stools along the length of it (over 20 metres) so guests can sit there with a coffee looking out to the lighthouse and sea beyond.
The second level is the largest and the flattest and will have 16 or more loungers and umbrellas.
The top level will have some good planting and a few areas for tables and chairs. This garden will lead into the existing Nook terrace that we already own and where we serve P.O.S.H. burgers.
This new space will allow guests more room to relax in and to appreciate the beautiful location of Tresanton.
George Carter with whom I have worked a lot in the past, who I admire and who is already working on other gardens in the West Country, is helping me to plan the garden and the planting.
We have also enlarged and embellished the terraces of rooms 5 and 6 which are now huge and will have sofas and good eating areas.
