Corbiere Radio Tower
Corbiere Radio Tower6 Adults
Holiday accommodation with a wow factor!
During the Occupation of Jersey three huge observation towers were built by the Germans as part of Hitler’s Atlantic Wall defences comprising 15,000 structures stretching from Norway to the Loire. Their purpose was to direct artillery fire against targets out to sea. One of these, La Corbière Radio Tower, is now available as holiday accommodation with a wow factor. Constructed from more than 5,000 bags of cement, this is a truly imposing site from both land and sea. Its location commands excellent views over Jersey, the Gulf of St Malo and more closely, Corbière Lighthouse which stands on a outcrop of beautiful pink granite rocks just offshore. The lighthouse was once manned but is now remotely operated. You can walk there along a causeway during low tide.
From the tower’s rather functional beginning comes accommodation that is unique to Jersey. The tower has six floors with one small room on each floor, but the climb to the top room is more than worth the effort. The look-out centre that once was the heart of the tower’s activity now offers a jaw-dropping 360 degrees view that must be seen to be believed, converted into a stunning living/dining area that is as quirky as it is spectacular.
Three shower rooms (with WC), a kitchen and three adult bunked bed bedrooms have been made out of the five floors that lead the way up to the tower centre. Parking is just outside the building so you can use your own car or choose to take advantage of the local buses. It is perfectly situated for cliff walking, watching passing boats, beaches and bird watching but is close to main roads leading to restaurants and beaches.
The Radio Tower is close to Corbiere Lighthouse and light flash will occur during the night. During periods of very poor visibility the lighthouse foghorn will sound at regular intervals. Due to the property's unique and significant history the tower has been sympathetically restored in the Bauhaus style. Please note that due to the design of the building, if the wind is strong, it may still be heard inside the building.
