Route de Rocquaine, St Pierre du Bois
Detached chalet bungalow in the highly sought after sea front location on the west coast and in prime position to enjoy fabulous sunsets.
This spacious family home, although in need of upgrading in areas, offers first floor panoramic sea views from the Hanois Lighthouse all around to L’Eree headland and Lihou Island. The gardens are low maintenance and mainly laid to gravel creating lovely seating areas with a block built office to the rear corner. Offering versatile accommodation this spacious home is worthy of closer inspection.
Step back a pace into rural St Peter’s, where the family next door will have owned the same house for generations. Tradition and the beauty of these houses go some way to explain why, and strict planning measures allow limited opportunity for new residents wanting to share this sylvan idyll.
St Peter’s has two coastlines – dramatic high cliffs to the South, with an exceptional stretch of the cliff-path network, and sandy beaches to the West that, with Torteval, host the annual Rocquaine Regatta (Henley, it’s not!). At the far end of L’Eree beach is the tidal island of Lihou and the adjacent nature reserve that form Guernsey’s first RAMSAR site. Also hereabouts are the showground fields for the annual two-day West Show, an agricultural and side-show extravaganza.Read our parish guide
