Rue de la Bellee, Torteval GY8 0NB
Uniquely stylish ground floor apartment, designed by one of the islands leading architects, have been created in this land mark development of a former church.
Superbly located in the heart of the rural south west of the island, the 646ft2 unit offers a high standard of finish with fully fitted kitchens, high quality bathroom fittings, storage and allocated parking for one car. An unusual opportunity to acquire easily managed properties in a beautiful area of the island which make lovely, low maintenance homes or ideal investments.
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
