My husband and I had a wonderful two weeks here among the wild flowers and deep lawns. Our little dog had a blast chasing rabbits while we harvested ripe tomatoes and fresh herbs from the gardens and made dinner each night on major Viking stoves - both indoors and out. It was a great place to entertain - on the loggia, under the vines in front and at the big table inside and was a good place for overnight guests too - we and they had privacy.
The house was beautifully decorated, magical, really, and beautifully equipped, as promised, from the fine towels and linens to the good beach towels and chairs and bicycles. The outdoor shower was dreamy, but the baths indoors were great too, beautifully designed, all marble and high-end finishes.
The one challenge was finding a beach we liked as many beaches in the area are private. We learned, however, that if you walked to the far end of the closest public beach parking lot (a parking pass is $40 a week, $12 daily, though bicycles are free), and kept walking, you would come to a beautiful stretch of dunes and beach called Goosewing Beach, with good white sand, great waves and waters. It was well worth the trouble - we went every day.
Little Compton itself is wonderful - low-key, uncrowded and peaceful. The fruit stand nearby on route 77 is great - we went there every day too!
Charming, historic, New England village, quite different from tourist areas. Close to Cape Cod, Boston, Newport Mansions, New Bedford Whaling Museum, Newport Jazz Festival. convenient to Nantucket,Martha's Vinyard Block and Elizabeth Island ferries; Brown University, Roger Williams College, and prep schools such as St. Georges and Portsmouth Abbey. Local vineyard and local art, music and poetry readings.
