  The Detail...

Overlooking France with the sea on three sides, this wonderfully historical home dates back to the 16th Century. This old fort has been more recently renovated to become an iconic holiday home that sits on the rugged north coast of Jersey.

Comprising the old guard house and military accommodation, which was built in 1830, the property is well off the beaten track, situated as it is in Jersey National Park. La Crete Fort sleeps five guests and is split across several levels, which are accessed by granite or concrete steps. There is a lounge/diner with a double sofa bed, table and chairs for up to six people, and a TV screen with a DVD player. This leads into the well equipped kitchen, which has a gas oven, fridge, and microwave.

Also on the lower level of the building are the sleeping quarters, with a double or twin bedroom and a further single bunk room. From this second bedroom the large shower room and separate toilet are accessed. Heading up a flight of stone stairs leads to the large granite soldiers room with a vaulted ceiling - an interesting space with a rich history, which is the ideal social area with its long dining table and chairs.

From the soldiers room there is access to the private garden terrace, which is sheltered by granite walls, but also offers breathtaking views from the fort across to Guernsey, Sark, and the coast of France. The sunset that can be enjoyed from this spot, while having an alfresco meal or sipping on a drink, is truly spectacular.

Below is a secluded beach which is popular with both swimmers and surfers, as well as those who just want to kick back and relax. Jersey is a small island but its coast is full of great beaches, secluded bays brimming with marine wildlife, fantastic opportunities for water sports, and beautiful coastal drives. It also has a rich history of military significance meaning there's lots to see including the war tunnels and impressive castles. There are many superb places to eat and drink as well, from delis and cafes, to Michelin star restaurants.
