Just a 10-minute drive from the coast and surrounded by beautiful Jersey countryside, La Retraite is a stunning, granite farmhouse beautifully furnished set within its own 2-acre grounds. From this detached house, close to the owners’ home, guests can enjoy the tranquillity from the sunny, south-facing terrace and also indulge in a spot of rest and relaxation in the hot tub. For those who enjoy cooking, the kitchen is very well equipped with Miele appliances, including an integral plate warmer, steamer oven and coffee maker. You can then relax afterwards in the elegant, beamed living/dining room, and should the temperature drop in the evenings, the wood burner ensures an ambient temperature. You are then guaranteed a good night’s sleep in elegantly furnished bedrooms, with very comfortable beds and bed linen.
The island of Jersey is just 9 x 5 miles, so you will be able to explore the many delightful sandy beaches and coves including Bouley Bay, the closest beach, which is an excellent place for diving and has a PADI diving centre. The 32-acre Durrell Wildlife Park is a 15-minute drive, where you can see some of the most endangered animals on earth living in natural enclosures. Tamba Dinosaur Park, with its rainforest themed play zone, and La Mare Wine Estate, famous for Jersey Apple Brandy Cream Liqueur and Black Butter, are worthy of visits. Visit St Helier, the island’s capital, which is a 5-minute drive, or hire bikes to explore the winding lanes. Flights and ferries to Jersey are frequent and can be easily booked, you don’t even require a passport, unless you are planning a day trip to France, which is just 14 miles away! Beach 2 miles.
