Channel Islands Hotels

It is a strange fact that the Channel Islands ended up as a part of Britain rather than France as they are much closer to the French mainland than to England. The Islands are characterised by a unique mix of international jet set and family friendly beach resorts. They offer a wonderfully mild climate for most of the year, and are a popular destination for visitors from all over the world.

The Islands offer a wonderfully relaxed way of life and are populated with quaint whitewashed houses and sandy beaches, spectacular sunsets and rocky shorelines. The landscape offers great opportunities for walking and cycling and no matter where guests visit they are never far away from great restaurants, pavement cafes, fun bars and places simply to relax and watch the passing parade of the Islands.

The famous Gerald Durrell conservation zoo is found on the largest Island namely Jersey and not far away is found the German Underground Hospital made up of half a mile of tunnels and chambers built through the solid rock. The capital is St Hellier and it is here that the Jersey Museum tells the story of the Island's history. In the harbour is Elizabeth Castle, built by Sir Walter Raleigh when he was governor of Jersey and was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth 1.

The Lavender Farm invites visitors to explores its cultivation fields and distillery, Guernsey offers visitors 27 beaches, Alderney Island may be the most peaceful hosting excellent beaches and shoreline walks and is reached via regular ferry and short hop airplane flights to and from jersey and Guernsey. Sark is a unique Island and Europe's only remaining feudal state officially ruled by its Seigneur under a constitution dating back 500 years, cycling is popular which is just as well as no cars are allowed on the Island.
