About the property

2 bedroom, sea views, close to the beach

A fully modernised cottage which adjoins the main house, directly opposite the stunning Longis Beach and Fort Raz. The Cottage sleeps 4 in two double bedrooms and the accommodation is set out over two floors and enjoys stunning views. The island of Alderney is one of the UK's best kept secrets, only 80 miles south of the UK's southern coast and the cottage is located at the eastern end of the island, about 1.5 miles from the town of St Anne. It should be noted that the island of Alderney is a separate island to Guernsey - a 15 minute flight away or just over an hour on a small boat. Our postal district is Guernsey which is why it may seem confusing!

About Gill & Nigel Dupont

I am from the UK and moved to Alderney to live in 2003. My husband is island born and life here is of an amazing quality, with no traffic, idyllic peace and quiet, lots of bars and restaurants and socially as lively as you want it to be. After 15 years of living here I can't imagine anywhere else in the world I would like to live.

Why Gill & Nigel Dupont chose Alderney

We are one of very few properties on the island offering beachside accommodation. We are situated about 1.5 miles from the town of St Anne dirrectly opposite the stunning Longis Beach.

What makes this cottage unique

The peace and quiet at Les Pourciaux Cottage on a still calm day cannot be beaten. Longis "Our" beach, is stunning white sand with crystal clear water, cool for swimming (Well, this is UK!) but invigorating.

The property was very comfortable and well appointed in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week - partly because the weather was so good. The owners were very helpful and we were able to enjoy the property to the full. We alternated between eating in and going out to a restaurant so made good use of the cooking facilities. One of the major benefits was the close location to the excellent beaches at the east end of the island (which were mostly deserted). We managed to swim most days. We also enjoyed walking around the coastal path. We probably ‘overdid’ the slightly long walk into town and maybe should have made more use of taxis or perhaps bikes. On several nights the sky and stars were amazing. So to summarise - a really enjoyable holiday at a great location on a lovely island where everyone is so welcoming and friendly.

Alderney is a small island with lots of activities on offer. There are victorian forts and lots of world war II bunkers to explore. There is a wealth of flora and fauna including the indigenous alderney blonde hedgehog.
