A fantastic opportunity to purchase a charming large farmstead on an elevated site, situated on the headland above Rocquaine Bay.
The property requires extensive renovation and refurbishment but has the potential to become a fine home. There is a sitting room and dining room, complimented by a well-proportioned kitchen on the ground floor. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Externally, Les Fontaines Farm sits on a 9-acre site along with various outbuildings, attached barns, and an annex.
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
