Alderney is the third largest island of the Channel Islands, lying just 8 miles off the Normandy coast of France and just 90 miles from the coast of Southampton in the UK. The island is just 3 1/2 miles long and 1 1/2 miles at its widest point.
Alderney has so much to offer from a quiet relaxing lifestyle to a well balanced economy generated by its offshore finance industry, its growing e-commerce and e-gaming sectors. Alderney is also a fabulous holiday destination with beaches as beautiful as you would see in the Caribbean (just with slightly colder water!) and several fabulous eateries and bars.
The island is accessible by plane or sea. There is a small, well managed airport with three operational runways with direct flights from Southampton and Guernsey with Aurigny airline. Braye Harbour offers safe anchorage via 70 yellow mooring buoys for private yachts and boats. There is also a ferry service that operates between Guernsey and Alderney with The Little Ferry Company.
For sale we have a three bedroom, stone property with the addition of an open air party room in a stone ruin in the garden. Situated just south of the main town is this fabulous home offering off street parking, a lawned garden to the rear, full double glazing and oil fired central heating.
