Rue Collas Simon, Torteval GY8 0LG
Situated down a quiet country lane with views over the surrounding countryside towards Lihou Island, Les Bois Vert is a bright bungalow built in the 1960’s.
Offering 3 bedrooms, secluded gardens with swimming pool and 2 agricultural fields, the lower field having 2 stables, Les Bois Vert is a super rural home on a 3 acre site.
Continue with the current layout or, if you are keen on a project, the site and position can certainly accommodate further development which had previously been approved.
Torteval is in two parts, although only 100 feet apart at Rue de L’Aitte. It includes Pleinmont Point, a favourite walk beginning at the quaint harbour of Portelet. The higher ground is Guernsey’s equivalent to Land’s End and the start, or end, of the spectacular south-coast network of cliff paths.
The sandy stretch of Rocquaine Bay and its regatta shared with St Peter’s are mentioned above, but Torteval’s great attraction is the Scarecrow Festival, annually drawing in 8,000 people over two days, strolling through the patchwork of scenic lanes near the parish church.
There is space aplenty throughout the parish, due to the relatively low ratio of houses, and demand is high. Some buyers say it’s too far out, which, for others, is what makes Torteval special.Read our parish guide
