Leave the southern coast of England setting sail for St. Malo and you'll soon meet the idyllic Channel Islands. The largest of the islands, Jersey, is a thriving holiday destination. Home to a varied collection of pristine beaches, fascinating attractions and welcoming towns, it's easy to understand the island's reputation as one of Europe's premier tourism spots. As the island attracts so many people each year, it's fitting that it's so well served by accommodation. To make the most of this special island, a good number of visitors choose to stay in one of its many B&Bs.
A Quiet Retreat in a Vibrant Town
Jersey may be relatively small, but that doesn't mean it's starved of activity. The main town of St. Helier is a vibrant and cosmopolitan place that has a buzz about it all year round. In the afternoons there are plenty of independent boutique shops to browse, and when the sun goes down visitors have their pick of some of the finest bars and restaurants in all of Europe.
With so much going on in St. Helier, it can be nice to have somewhere to go to get away from it all. The town's bed and breakfasts, like the Norfolk Hotel, offer guests a tranquil retreat from the bustling streets.
One of the things that guests at B&Bs enjoy is a superior level of service. With owners typically on hand to cater for guests' needs, there's little left to do but sit back and relax. Having the owners around the help you out can be of particular use when the time comes to plan an itinerary. With intimate local knowledge of sights and attractions at your disposal, you're in safe hands.
