About Les Pourciaux Cottage

The island of Alderney is the northernmost Channel Island, located only 9 miles from the coast of France at its eastern tip, and 60 miles south of the Isle of Wight on England's south coast.

Once you arrive you will discover a hidden gem and you will wonder why you have never been to this precious place before!  Beautiful unspoilt beaches with crystal clear turquoise waters, a rugged coastline with over 50 miles of footpaths, glorious sunsets, a myriad of bars, cafes and restaurants, and the uniqueness of this island community are just some of the things that will be here waiting for you.  You will also experience some of the darkest and most unpolluted skies in the universe - you have to see it to believe it.

At only 3.5 x 1.5 miles, the island is the perfect size ... small enough to explore at your leisure and yet large enough to enjoy being in your own little paradise.  Find a quiet spot, take in the sea views and listen to the birds - it doesn't get more peaceful and relaxing than this!

The owners, Nigel and Gill Dupont, bought Les Pourciaux in 2006 and renovated the property, turning it into one half living accommodation for themselves and one half self catering holiday rental accommodation.  After getting married at the house in 2009, they opened Les Pourciaux Cottage in July 2010 and have been sharing their little island idyll with regulars and new visitors to the island ever since.  It is wise to book as far ahead as possible as the summer weeks usually become booked up before the end of the summer before.
