My Booking

Why not stay at La Villetta (The Little Villa)? A self-catering apartment for up to 6-7 (incl. travel cot) on England's south coast with direct sea-views. Situated in a Georgian Grade II listed building and within close proximity to all of Hastings' major attractions. A stylish clean and modern set of interiors to our apartment with elegant features such as original fireplace, crystal chandeliers in both main rooms with lovely french doors opening out onto a balcony with uninterrupted sea views. St. Leonard’s-on-sea and Hastings, best known for its link to the 1066 Battle of Hastings, offers many interesting places to see and visit. With three miles of unspoilt beaches, and picturesque sandstone hills just inland, it is the perfect backdrop to a civilisation rich in history and elegance. The Old Town in Hastings (close to the apartment), with its medieval half-timber houses, leads to England's largest beach-based fishing fleet where you can find the high black net shop buildings unique to Hastings. Heading inland and up the steepest funicular railway in Britain on the West Hill, are the remains of Hastings Castle, dating back to 1066 as William-the-Conqueror's first English castle. St. Leonard’s-on-sea and Hastings boast four museums, and an art gallery, and the Jerwood Modern Art Gallery, which will stand amongst the net shops on the beach itself. There are many local events including the May Day; Jack-in-the-Green; festival, a beer festival, a music festival, and an annual torchlight procession through the medieval streets to a beach bonfire and offshore fireworks, but most renowned is the;Old Town Week; where many of the medieval and Georgian houses open their doors to visitors. Other attractive sights include the 660 acre Hastings Country Park for spectacular panoramas, the Conqueror's Stone where William of Normandy supposedly ate his first breakfast in England, and of course the unfortunate remains of the recently burnt down pier.
