La Pointe Farm – Guernsey Self Catering Apartments
Grade Four Star
Two Bedrooms (sleeps 4 – 5 people)
This self-catering apartment is named after Portelet Bay, a five minute drive from us. It is a lovely sandy bay, ideal for swimming and sunbathing. There are also rocks and rock pools in the bay that will keep your children amused for hours when armed with a fishing net!
The beach is also used by local fishermen to launch their boats and land their catches. To sit on the sand watching the comings and goings of the fishermen and other local boat owners is not to be missed.
There is also a pier on the beach and when the tide is right it is fantastic to swim from.
The beach is accessed via a slipway. At the top of the slipway you will find car parking, toilets and a kiosk selling ice creams, sandwiches, drinks etc.
A one minute walk from the top of the slipway lies ‘The Imperial’ beer garden and bars where you will be able to purchase an excellent bar meal, both at both lunchtimes and evenings.
To find a wonderful coastal walk to ‘Pezeries Point’, with a pine forest on your left and the scenic views of the coast on your right, take the opposite direction from the top of the slipway. You will be enthralled!
Portelet Apartment is one of four self-catering apartments within an old Guernsey barn conversion. Before Portelet apartment was converted by us in 1997 it was used for hay storage to feed cattle who were previously housed below.
By 1999 the barn was completely transformed into what it is now four modern self-catering apartments that have been awarded the grade of four and five star. Now all that is left of the original building are the outer walls.
Portelet Apartment is reached from the granite courtyard by a set of concrete steps (with handrail).
When you enter the apartment, the bathroom is the first doorway on the right.
The first doorway on the left is the twin bedroom which will take an extra single folding bed (this severely limits floor space) with a window overlooking the courtyard.
Next door is the double bedroom which has a King size bed that can be split into a twin if required with a window looking out to the sea with green fields between.
Opposite the doorway to the double bedroom is the lounge/kitchen/living area where you will find everything you are likely to need for your general day-to-day living, including cooker, microwave, fridge, washing machine, cutlery, pots and pans, TV, DVD, CD player etc.
The lounge/living area has two windows overlooking the front garden with fields and the sea beyond. The sunsets that can be seen from these windows are world class.
Prices shown are based on up to four persons sharing this self-catering apartment, there will be a small charge for extra persons please enquire (babies in cots stay free)
If you want to bring your own laptop, please do as Portelet apartment is covered by our WI-FI network.
All bed linen and towels (not beach towels) are provided by us. We can also, on request supply you free of charge with a cot and high chair. There is no charge for electricity or central heating which is available and controlled from within the apartment.
