Felpham with its shingle beach and promenade is the perfect place for those that want a village feel by the sea.

Bob May, company founder of Mays Estate Agents, has been associated with the village both as a resident and an estate agent for more than 20 years.

“I think that my 46 years as an estate agent in Felpham speaks volumes for what it means to me and the special affection I have for the village,” he said.

Separated from nearby Bognor Regis by Butlins Holiday Centre Bob says that it has the feel of a ‘seaside village without the kiss me quick and candy floss trappings found elsewhere’.

“It retains a special atmosphere all of its own,” he added.

As well as the beach it has a Norman church, active village hall, leisure centre and both primary and secondary schools.

“It nestles on the coast with safe bathing facilities, with an incredibly active and successful sailing club, whilst being sheltered from the extremes of climate and benefiting from the leisure opportunities to the north by the South Downs,” Bob explained.

Prices range for as low as £85,000 for a studio flat through to brand new estate type houses, right the way up to £1.5million for the seafront properties.

“Many residents come to Felpham for the abundance and variety of retirement property including purpose built flats and bungalows, of which May’s currently have a large selection available,” explained Bob.

“The flats starting at £115,000 and bungalows starting around £250,000 and rising through to just under £500,000.”

As to why people choose to live in Felpham Bob adds that what sets it apart is the vast range of varied properties available for all type and variety of purchases from first time buyers right the way through to the discerning buyer looking for their seafront dream home.
