Calais Lane, St Martin's, GY4 6AS
This charming, detached traditional home enjoys an idyllic location close to the east and south coast cliff paths of St Martin’s and offers surprisingly spacious accommodation of great character.
The property has parking, a very easily managed courtyard garden and has been lovingly maintained by the current owners. A lovely house in a fabulous location.
Jerbourg Point marks St Martin’s and Guernsey’s south-east corner with panoramic views across to neighbouring islands. Fermain Bay was a favourite of Victor Hugo’s, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir captured Moulin Huet in fifteen of his paintings.
Cliff paths and green lanes provide excellent walks and Sausmarez Manor is a resplendent Queen Anne house, with regular events in its grounds. There are good family amenities, excellent hotels, restaurants and pubs, plus a M&S food hall for home dining. This is a sought-after location with a vibrant parish centre and housing market to match.
At the gateway to St Martin’s parish church stands La Gran’mère du Chimquière (the grandmother of the churchyard), where present-day brides often adorn the pagan statue-menhir (c.2500BC) with a floral headdress.Read our parish guide
