    Default The views are amazing

    Can I say:
    The views are amazing.
    The view is amazing.

    I mean the whole area I can see.
    They live in the countryside. They've got a cottage near the lake. I think we should go there. The view is amazing.

    It depends on whether you see it as a single view or a variety- both are possible.

    I would normally use this:
    1. with a heavily stressed 'there', while I was indicating the view,
    2. if I followed it with some such expression as "just over that next rise".
