Do you fancy a holiday but do not like the thought of sitting around the airports for hours on end? Then why not visit Jersey, one of the Channel Islands.
The flights are short from your nearest regional airport. The welcome you receive on your arrival is wonderful.
The Island caters for all age groups and offers something for everyone. Being closer to France than England the weather is much milder and their sunshine rate is excellent. There are all types of accommodation on offer from 5* hotels to self -catering apartments and campsites. The key word is ‘cleanliness,’ the Island seems to pride itself in being a litter free zone with the residents taking pride with their properties displaying many floral areas.
Shopping can be a lot cheaper than here as there is no V.A.T. Jewellery, watches perfume and electrical items can all be found at excellent prices.
For those of you who enjoy their nightlife there are many pubs, clubs, discos etc to try and for those who prefer a quieter life they are many options available for you too!
If you have a family a wonderful hotel that I would not hesitate to recommend would be ‘The Merton Hotel’, a Seymour hotel offering something for everyone. Our family have returned to it for the last 5 years and each year it seems to offer something better than the last. The food is something to dream about and the aquadome is exceptional.
All in all I would advise anyone looking for either a short break or more to give Jersey a try, it certainly hasn’t disappointed us yet.
