1 Bedroom superb little flat with amazing 360 degree views of folkestone the English Channel and France . situated on the 3rd floor a comfortable sea side style to suit all tastes. Located right at the top of the creative quarter with close access to shops, Restaurants and bars and the surprisingly beautiful Harbour and harbour wall. Also 15 minutes from the Channel Tunnel and 1 hour from London by train. Fantastic base from which to explore The East Kent coast and the Wonderful city of Canterbury. The stairs are a bit of a climb but the views are worth it!

Flat was very clean and spacious, with nice views of the sea and lots of light. Great location near the beach/town. It was well equipped and Stephen was easy to contact.

We (two adults and two children, 11 and 17) enjoyed a lovely holiday in Stephen's flat which is situated in the best part of Folkestone: in the town centre, near the harbour, the beach and The Leas but nevertheless it is a quiet flat. + private parking space in front of flat + very kind and helpful caretakers + very generous: a litre of milk and biscuits as a "welcome gift" + very generous as well: self service to as many towels as were needed. They were stocked in the airing cupboard + spotlessly clean + kitchen equipped with everything we needed + all the windows can be child-proof locked + front garden can be used + lovely views + decorated tastefully + sea can be heard in flat - no deep freezer Subjective ideas for improvement: > another set of chairs in kitchen - at the moment: flat sleeps four but only two chairs available for eating together at the table > two sets of keys would have been useful > fan - we were staying during a very hot and humid period. Due to health reasons and the heat I stayed at the flat quite often and a ventilator would have been a nice luxury ;) > plastic tablecloth - wooden table feels slightly sticky although clean Unfortunately some of the kitchen items hadn't been washed up properly by former tenants. This has nothing to do with the caretaking of the flat but is the responsibility of the people renting the flat! We cannot understand why foreign property is not being cared for as own property ... All in all: This flat is going to be our base in UK for future holidays. My parents who had also seen the flat will also rent it when they come to Folkestone which is quite regularly.

Spacious flat, wonderful views over the sea. Quiet location but minutes walk from The Leas, the harbour, town centre and bus station. Stairs are hard work, specially when you have heavy bags but the views are worth it. Only negative is the shower which is really poor. Bus station is handy for getting around and the walk along the seafront to Sandgate is lovely. Also the walk past the harbour to the country park is very nice with great views from the top.

We felt very welcome in Stephens apartment. Great view over the sea! Good beds, very clean and silent! If we`ll come back to Kent, than again into this apartment! The one and only what you can hear is the Sea and sometimes the tv from the neighbor. Folkestone is a great location for perfect holidays!

Reaching this top floor Flat may be a challenge for the elderly but it will be rewarded with a wonderful view across the Channel to the French coast. The Flat is very spacious and adequately furnished and equipped, and being in a Private road it is quiet and ample parking space is available. It is situated in just about the best possible place you could get in Folkestone. A few steps to the right brings you to the town centre, yet just a short walk to the left takes you past some excellent pubs and down to the harbour. We really enjoyed our time there.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at France View Villas. Lovely, spacious, comfortable and clean accommodation located at the end of the promenade. Being on the top floor there are lovely views over the English Channel. Parking available in a private road at the front of the property. Very close to a good variety of shops and cafes/restaurants. Folkestone is a good base for visiting Dover Castle, Canterbury and Hastings and for the Channel Tunnel. (Just a couple of points to be aware of - there are a few flights of stairs to reach the apartment and the low ceiling height in the bathroom may be a problem if you are over 6ft as you need to stand in the bath to have a shower ). Would stay here again when we re- visit the area.

I really enjoyed my stay here in the flat. It was very comfortable and absolutely awesome views after climbing the stairs that got easier as time went on! I was here for 33 nights and slept very well. A great place to stay in the summer.
