Holiday Cottages in Channel Islands
Close to both the English and French coasts, Jersey shows a distinct duo-aspect of both nations' cultures,making your visit decidedly different. History is there, especially the most recent in the early 1940;s, when the island was occupied by German troops, but this is all in the past as you relax on the unspoiled sun-drenched beaches, and tour the carefully preserved countryside, where strict planning laws ensure the spectre of unsuitable development is prevented. The agricultural environment is obvious all around you as you discover where those delicious Jersey Royal potatoes and crisp salad vegetables are grown, to be delivered daily to the mainland.Guernsey is a quieter version of its neighbour Jersey, bringing to mind lazy days spent on the beaches, or walking across its rural centre. But the capital, St. Peter Port, will give you a stimulating air of restaurants, cafes and bistros, and the opportunity for some classy shopping. Ferries are busy too, sailing regularly to the other islands.Alderney is the third largest of the Channel Islands (although "large" is hardly the word, being just 1 1/2 miles wide and 3 1/2 miles long) and sustains a small friendly and welcoming population of just over 2,000. It is only eight miles from France and 60 miles from England, but has an independent government and an off-shore finance and commerce location, together with its own airport and harbour. Relaxation on the beautiful beaches edging a countryside burgeoning with wild flowers is what this island is really all about.No cars, no crowds, no stress - just an easy feeling of contented relaxation, with no worries about pollution or timetables; come and go as you please, for just a day on a ferry from Guernsey, or for a longer stay in the many comfortable self-catering cottages dotted about the island.The smallest of the populated Channel Islands, Sark displays an air of contentment and easy living in the many hotels, self-catering cottages and camping sites; and, like its neighbour, Herm, there's no polluting transport, just horse-drawn vehicles and bicycles.
