Beach Art Villa is a 3 bedroom property, situated in the village of Lower Largo, with panoramic sea views, featuring open plan living space with high ceilings and large proportioned living area, private balcony, courtyard and steps directly onto the beach. The Villa is owned by a driftwood artist and is decorated throughout with coastal inspired pieces from Scottish painters, photographers and tapestries and many of the owners handmade artwork. The access to the house is from Main street to a private lane. The Villa is situated in the heart of the historical village of Lower Largo (made famous as the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk - the inspiration behind Daniel Defoe's classic, Robinson Crusoe), with a shop, local pub, hotel/restaurant and craft/tea room all within a 2 minute walk.
We are a family of 5. We have x2 grown up sons, and a young daughter, who all enjoy the beach and the more relaxed village life style.

The wonderful beach and the village location.
The wonderful restaurants in the area.
Ever changing Sea views, with the beach 10 seconds from the front door. A bright, spacious house big enough to share with friends and family in a beautiful friendly village, where everyone says hello!
To be closer to nature, rock pooling for crabs, starfish etc. bird watching, dolphin/seal spotting. Beach combing for shells, sea glass, sea pottery, etc.

Just had a fabulous family holiday at Beach Art Villa! Light, spacious and tastefully decorated/furnished. Equipped with everything you may need. So much to do and see nearby and of course direct access to the beach! Now we are home I'm having trouble falling asleep without the sound of the soothing sea! Thank you Nicola & Martin :-)

The three of us have had a lovely break at Beach Art Villa - lots of things to do in the area and we found it to be very family friendly. We will miss living by the sea-side! Thank you!

What a lovely week we've had at this beautiful Villa, thank you! Tea on the balcony watching the sunset and the sea - bliss! There is lots to do - we recommend The Deer Centre near Cupar and The Cocoa Tree Shop in Pittenween for coffee or lunch.

Thanks for a lovely stay. Beautiful views and a lovely home. We'll be back!
We had a fantastic week in the villa - and because it is on the North Bank it has a south facing aspect over the sea. The upper balcony was a great place to read a paper in the sun. The location couldn't be better. The sea comes right in and when the tide is out, the beach is great. The local amenities were good, everyone was friendly and we would recommend it to anyone who loves being by the sea.
My family came to stay whilst exploring St. Andrews and the local area. The house was wonderful, spotlessly clean and beautifully turned out. The views onto the beach were wonderful, and the house is much more spacious than the pictures depict I thought! There were lots of books and DVD's for the children to dip into if the weather was a bit off, and the gate directly leads to the beach where we found hermit crabs, shells galore and sea snails! A friendly village, fresh fish, and daily trips out and about made this one of the best family holidays we have had! We recommend the Scottish Deer Centre, fantastic!
What a wonderful week we had at this beautiful villa which is wonderfully decorated throughout with the owner's own work . On arrival tho villa was immaculate and a lovely welcome pack awaited us . To make it perfect the weather was lovely and we spent mornings exploring the beach with our collie puppy followed by lovely fresh coffee on our own private balcony watching others on the beach ! Afternoons and evenings were spent exploring the local area including Crail , Anstruther and St Andrews , all a short journey away . We ate some gorgeous local food including lobster bought direct from the local fisherman for a very reasonable price . Blacketyside farm a short distance away also has lovely fresh local produce for both sit in and takeaway with a lovely picnic area .
Overall a lovely holiday in a beautiful part of the country . The beachfront location of the villa is just perfect and we've already recommended to our friends . Well certainly go back
Superbe endroit pour se détendre et oublier le reste du monde le temps d'une échappée sur les côtes écossaises! La maison est grande, très bien entretenue, confortable et chaleureuse, et celà même en plein hiver. Lire au coin du feu, bercé par le bruit des vagues qui viennent lécher le mur de la terrasse à marée haute; ouvrir les rideaux le matin et ne voir par la fenêtre que la mer à perte de vue... Magique! Mon ami et moi avons également beaucoup apprécié le sentier de promenade partant du village même et longeant la côte. De quoi marcher plusieurs heures entre champs et plage: là-bas, pas de barre d'immeubles our gâcher le paysage! Les villes et villages alentour valent également le détour, et vous ne manquerez pas d'y découvrir de délicieuses spécialités locales. En un mot, un séjour inoubliable, je vous le recommande!
Really enjoyed our trip to the Beach Art Villa. Only an hour from Edinburgh but Largo village offers true peace and tranquility, and feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the Central belt.
The very fact that hustle and bustle is not on the agenda gave us time to really relax. We enjoyed the beach, which is literally right at the end of the back garden, absolutely loved the balcony overlooking it and waking listening to the waves was magic.
The house itself was beautiful and it even has a proper wood burning fire. Largo itself is a pretty wee place with lots of nice walks and good local food. And Anstruther and Elie are really near too and equally beautiful. I'll definitely be back in summer time :)
We booked the Beach Art Villa in Lower Largo for a family holiday. The property is beautifully situated and beautifully done out. We had such an amazing time, and pretty much did not leave the house and the area for the week we were there. The direct access to the beach suited us entirely as we have a daughter with special needs who loves the beach - but only for half an hour at a time! The house is well equipped, with plenty space and amazing views. Being able to sit on the balcony and watch the tide come in with coffee in the morning and wine at night was so peaceful and relaxing. I would recommend this property to anyone. A perfect little get away, and we're already planning to book again for next year. Loved it.
