This absolutely stunning 3 bedroom detached holiday home is majestically perched on the very edge of the island on the east coast of Jersey and has uninterrupted sea views across to France. The views are equally exceptional from both of the ground floor double bedrooms and the large open-plan living area, whilst the view from the terrace must be one of the very best in Jersey.
Ideal for sea lovers, being built on the rocks above the south facing bay, it is literally a stones drop to the water at high tide. It is just a minutes' walk to a slipway to access the sea where you can enjoy a refreshing open-sea swim or launch kayaks or a small boat.
L'Hôpital is a property well known in Jersey and was built in the mid 1800's to function as a small hospital to look after those injured building St Catherine's Breakwater (less than a mile away) rather than take them into the main town of St Helier on the south coast. The Breakwater was intended to be half of the protection for a port for the British Navy, but for strategic reasons it was never completed, but L'Hôpital remained at the centre of the large, protected bay.
The property has been sympathetically modernised and is finished to a very high standard and is very well equipped.
It is only a short walk along the coastal footpath to St Catherines' Breakwater where a stroll to the very end of the breakwater to spot dolphins is a lovely way to pass an hour or so. Day trips to the Ecrehous Reef and to France leave from here and it is a lively bay for kayaking and dingy sailing. There is also popular beach cafe here which serves food all day long.
Mont Orgueil Castle is just a walk or a short drive to the south and this castle overlooks the lovely harbour area of Gorey where there is a great choice of restaurants ranging from gastro pubs to fine dining establishments.
This property would make a perfect honeymoon retreat but would be equally perfect for couples wishing to enjoy a relaxing holiday with fabulous sea views and it would also be an idyllic base for a family wishing to enjoy a traditional cottage/beach holiday.
L'Hôpital is highly recommended by the team at Freedom Holidays.
Children over the age of 5 years welcome.
