Where is it?
The village nearby has a supermarket, butcher and deli (also selling newspapers and fresh bread) a choice of restaurants and terraced bistros and a pub serving good pub grub where you watch the sun setting over the bay. Chips on the beach is a "must" too! Here are some seascapes from the area http://www.photoboxgallery.com/gallery/slideshow?album_id=1331753793. All of this is just a 10-15 minute walk away or a couple of minutes by car.
Fresh-picked crabmeat and homegrown vegetables are nearby.
2 bus routes nearby take you into the pretty town of St Peter Port and around the rest of the island.
Guernsey offers wonderful clean, sandy beaches for sunbathing and swimming, sandcastles and family games, rock pools, wind surfing, canoeing and surfing etc. Several beaches are just a short distance from our home.
Walkers and cyclists can enjoy quiet lanes and flat coastal paths and walkers can enjoy the more hilly cliff paths too, with fabulous views.
The island has two 18 hole and one nine hole golf courses.
The no-car islands of Herm and Sark are perfect for day trips, Herm being my paradise of choice! The other Channel Islands are easily accessible, as are ports and airports in Brittany.
The whole island has a huge selection of good restaurants, cafes and pubs, supermarkets, shopping and fresh seafood; fresh produce is available on the Hedge Veg stalls dotted around the island.
Victor Hugo spent 15 years in exile on the island, during which time he wrote some of his best works including Les Miserables. His house remains just as he left it and is open to the public. http://www.victorhugo.gg/
