NEW PHOTOS ADDED 1 APRIL 2019

For a visit to the magical and legendary island of Sark (population 600, car-free), you'll be challenged to find a better alternative than my 200 square meter, 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom home.

The building was extensively refurbished and modernised in 2009, and it is one of the highest quality homes on the entire island. Its entire set-up was originally conceived to provide a professionally managed Bed & Breakfast destination for visitors wanting to have a very special experience when visiting the smallest of the four Channel Islands.

The kitchen has an AGA oven and a 12-foot antique French dining table seating up to 10 people. The house also has a huge living room with a fire stove and a large TV. There are lots of lovely features throughout, e.g. exposed originals beams and exposed stone walls. All conveniences are modern and top quality. When the house was redone, no expenses were spared.

The house is located right behind the Aval du Creux Hotel, and comes with a large and very private garden. The garden also has a BBQ platform and I keep a complete set of outdoor furniture and BBQ equipment in the garden shed.

It is a 2-minute walk to "The Avenue", i.e. to Sark's small village with its shopping facilities, cafes, bank, pub, bicycle rental, etc.. Some of the local hotels allow you to use their pool on a "dine and dip" basis. For all local transport needs such as your suitcases being taken to/from the harbour, I have a carting service provider on call for you.

I am using this as my primary home, however, since I travel extensively for both work and pleasure I decided to start using LoveHomeSwap.

For 2019, my diary is very flexible and I can accommodate most dates. Please email me if you are looking at next year. It's first come first serve!

My recommendation is to stay on Sark for 1 or maximum 2 weeks and use it as a base for local activities such as hiking, sea fishing, diving, cooking classes, and guided nature walks; as well as (possibly) short trips to other nearby islands. You can check http://www.sark.co.uk for a brief video about Sark and you can also download a brochure with information about the island. This website also lists important dates, e.g. the yearly sheep racing and the Sark Opera.

Sark receives about 60,000 tourists per year and has a lot to offer, besides being a lovely place that time forgot. It's a unique experience to visit Sark and you won't find an equally high value home-exchange for the island. Use it while I am here!
