Panoramic views of the bay
The Somerville Hotel St Aubin; the iconic Jersey country house hotel commands panoramic views of St Aubin’s Bay. Here you can enjoy a holiday feeling in the tropical gardens, eat fresh Jersey lobsters and watch the yachts in the harbour, bobbing or beaching depending on the tide.
As soon as you approach the island by air you’ll see the lush green valleys, traditional Jersey granite farmhouses and a beautiful coastline. Explore the island by bicycle; there is a myriad of narrow country roads called Green Lanes which have a speed limit of 15mph. Priority is given to walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
Guests love to explore the rugged north coast where there is a network of walking paths. The views over the coast towards neighbouring France are stunning.
This is what a holiday experience is all about!
The island’s history is a big draw for visitors. And it’s no wonder why. From the fascinating records of the German Occupation to La Hougue Bie where you’ll visit one of the ten oldest buildings in the world and one of Europe’s finest passage graves and is also aligned with the equinox.
After a long day exploring and feeding your mind and soul, come back to the cosy bar for an aperitif or freshly shaken cocktail … and then do it all over again! Or sit and relax over a long afternoon tea, served with fresh scones and cream, delicate finger sandwiches and decadent cakes.
