‘One of the most important private estates in Jersey that carries international recognition'
The Island of Jersey is the largest and most southerly of the British Channel Islands, situated about 14 miles from the French coast and 22 miles south-east of Guernsey. The island has excellent communications with scheduled flights from all major UK airports, together with links by sea to Portsmouth and Poole in the UK, St Malo and Granville in France and the other Channel Islands. Jersey has a population of about 100,000 and is governed by The States Assembly. Although Jersey has historical ties to Britain, with a constitutional relationship established over 900 years, it is not part of the UK or the political aspect of the European Community. Jersey is fully recognised by HM Government as an independent low tax jurisdiction. The island offers a safe and secure lifestyle, with a very low crime rate and provides a wonderful family environment. Jersey's countryside is very attractive and the lovely coastline offers a range of safe and sandy beaches, together with a network of stunning cliff walk paths. There are several golf courses, including 3 x 18 hole courses. Commuting to London and to numerous regional airports is straightforward and the private jet handling facilities are excellent.
