The Riviera is an exclusive location accessed from the main A259 that runs along the coast between Sandgate and Hythe, and backing directly onto the beach. The property is a short stroll from the charming and sought-after village centre with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants. The long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be found by meandering down one of the pretty alleyways from the high street and the coastal path can be followed along the foot of The Leas all the way to Folkestone harbour.

The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe with its wider range of amenities, including a Waitrose, is approximately 3 miles away to the west and the larger town of Folkestone is about 2 miles to the east. There is a variety of sports available along the coast, including rowing and sailing and a choice of golf courses in the immediate vicinity together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

The High Speed Rail Link service to London, with a journey time to St Pancras of less than an hour, is available at Folkestone West Station (1 mile) and Ashford International (16 miles) and Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels are also available at the latter. The M20 motorway network and the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Cheriton (Calais 35 minutes) are both about 3 miles distant.
