Les Monmains, Vale GY3 5TZ
Charming mid-terrace house built in 1856 and beautifully renovated maintaining character throughout.
Spacious living areas together with three double bedrooms and a nursery off the main bedroom which has first fix plumbing to create an ensuite bathroom. The garden is part lawned and gravelled with a useful block built shed to the rear and good on-street parking nearby. Conveniently situated for The Bridge amenities and lovely walks at Bordeaux.
The ancient names of Le Clos du Valle and Vale Vingtaine de l’Epine remain on record but they are administered as one and jointly called Vale.
The parish offers wide sandy beaches and surfing at Portinfer, two fishing harbours at Grande Harve, a marina at Beaucette and horseshoe harbour at Bordeaux. There is a Royal 18-hole links course within extensive common land that also has a competition-standard rifle range.
Vale and its former abbey found favour with William the Conqueror and his father before him, whose storm-torn ship found safety at L’Ancresse (the anchorage). Wealth and industry have long since been Vale’s bywords, displayed in numerous 17th- and 18th-century farmhouses, pretty cottages and vast Victorian villas in an inland maze of lanes.Read our parish guide
