Les Fauconnaires, St Andrew's GY6 8UE
One of the islands finest Local Market residences, Les Fauconnaires lies just one and a half miles from the centre of St Peter Port yet enjoys a lovely rural setting in a sheltered valley, neighbouring agricultural land and other traditional stone farmhouses.
The extensive accommodation features a grand entrance hall and well-proportioned main reception rooms along with less formal family living space with traditional farmhouse character. Overlooking its beautiful, landscaped gardens with heated pool, agricultural land totalling over 9 acres and large barn providing garaging, snooker room and store, this fabulous home offers a host of facilities and further scope for the discerning purchaser.
In the centre of the island is the garden of Guernsey. What the parish lacks in coastline it makes up for in rural pasture, and a Tony Jacklin designed golf course. At its heart St Andrew’s has fields of gold once central to cider making in the island. Its church is affectionately known as St André de la Pommeraye, or St Andrew of the apple orchard, as celebrated each year in good family fashion in the rectory gardens.
There are lovely clusters of granite farmhouses and the Little Chapel’s setting of Vauxbelets means pretty little valleys, watched over by a former monastery, now Blanchelande College. Talbot Valley is even prettier and while it lies predominantly in the Castel, St Andrew’s will point to where it begins.Read our parish guide
