It is a British Crown Dependency but is situated far closer to the coast of France than it is to the mainland of UK, sitting just off the coast of Normandy. Jersey has long been a popular holiday destination thanks to its great weather, attractive scenery and towns, its heritage, and its beaches, and hence Jersey cottages and holiday homes will appeal to families, couples and friends looking for a fun though relaxing holiday.

                                A wonderful location just above a bay with sandy beach. Property light and airy, clean and well equipped. Comfortable beds, two bathrooms plus separate toilet. We enjoyed it very much!

                                fantastic location, super friendly hosts and excellent accommodation

                                We had a fantastic extended Easter week at La Hougue Mauger. This is mainly due to the great accommodation and all-round helpfulness of our host. From the moment we first inquired about our stay we were given plenty of information and emails were responded to super quickly. The location is truly stunning - and on cycle route 1, which was a big plus for us. La Hougue Mauger has plenty of storage space in case you want to bring equipment and the house itself is rich in history, too. We really enjoyed daily conversations with our host - about Jersey's flora and fauna, the locals and hidden gems - exploring the island by bike and relaxing at the house in the evenings, whilst enjoying the stunning views of the fields, the ocean and even of France! We cannot recommend it highly enough and are looking forward to seeing how the garden has developed when we next come.
