Ventnor is definitively the best area to stay in the Isle of Wight and the flat is great because:
1) Has a magnificent view of the sea and some of the islands cliffs
2) Just walk a few minutes walk and you have access to the many restaurants and shops on the beach esplanade.
3) If you are a rambler or a runner, the island coastal path is very nearby and it will lead you to the secret gem of Steephill Cove, the Botanic Gardens and Lighthouses along the way.
4) The flat is exceptionally bright and airy and very well equipped
I will definitively stay there again in my next visit!
