With a close proximity to the Normandy coast, Longueville Manor is almost certain to be found under sunny skies from spring through summer.
Parts of the property date to the 16th century and an air of period glamour pervades while every modern comfort is within easy reach, from the DVD library to free Wi-Fi. Deep in its own private wooded valley the hotel feels wonderfully cut off from the real world. Coastal walks are nearby and the tennis court is right outside the door; those seeking less strenuous activities can lounge by the outdoor pool or try the simple pleasures of feeding the ducks on the hotel’s lake. As Jersey’s premier hotel, it is of little surprise to learn of its award-winning Michelin-starred cuisine, tempting guests with Jersey oysters and local scallops among other island delicacies. The French-influenced capital St Helier lies nearby adding continental flavour, and with the airport just seven miles away there is little stress involved in reaching this lavish hideaway.
