For a beach holiday with culture, countryside and lots of activities, the Channel Islands, just off the coast of Normandy, are a great place for a holiday on one or all of the island with 'the spirit of Britain, in the heart of Old Normandy'. The Channel Islands consist of those inhabited and those not. The main islands you can rent a holiday home are on Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney, Sark and Herm.
Book a holiday home in Jersey for an island full of natural beauty, pristine beaches and countryside of rare wildlife species such as red squirrels and flowers such as bluebells and primroses. To learn about the history of Jersey visit some of the museums and the fascinating Elizabeth castle, which defended Jersey for 300 years. For shopping visit St Helier with pedestrianised shopping streets with chain stores and independent gems. If you would like to relax, a cosy cottage in the countryside would be ideal, or a beach side villa Jersey where you can visit the beach as you please.
