The Jewels of Jersey
Lying just off the French coast, but only a short hop from the UK, Jersey offers us the most wonderful of coastal locations, all with a slightly French twist. However, beyond the harbours, boats, lighthouses and sandy bays lies one of its best secrets – the quiet valleys and green lanes of the interior, home to cider orchards, historic houses and vineyards.
Not only does subject matter abound in a multitude of variety, but the great thing about it being a small island is that everywhere is close by and we can instantly choose the compass direction we wish to face – thus giving us control over painting locations, and the chance to keep any wind at our backs.
Based in St Brelade's Bay we are fortunate to have subject matter aplenty on our doorstep. The hotel faces a beautiful white sand bay and there is a small jetty and an unusual church all within a few yards.
Where we stay
St Brelade's Bay Hotel
First founded in the 19th century, St Brelade's Bay Hotel has a truly special location, set in five acres of stunning gardens and overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches in the Channel Islands. It is a four star hotel, providing forty seven rooms of luxury accommodation, delicious food and excellent service. There is an indoor swimming pool, a relaxing spa pool and steam room. It is the perfect base for our painting groups. For those not participating in our activities, just enjoy the facilities, peace and quiet and wonderful views. Sea view room upgrades are sometimes available at a supplement on request.
