Guernsey Guide

Forming one of the Channel Islands in the English Channel, the island of Guernsey is a possession of the British Crown and lies around 50 km to the west of the Normandy coast in France and 120 km to the south of Weymouth, on the south coast of England. The island has a milder climate than much of the UK which is why the island's inhabitants seem to make the most of the outdoors. There are beautiful beaches to visit, cliff paths to trek along and some island hopping to be had. During the summer months, a spot of 'al fresco' dining may even be possible. Guernsey's capital, St Peter Port, is characterised by its pretty cobbled streets and beautiful marina.

There are many things for visitors to see and do on the island. The island's spectacular coastline and countryside provide the backdrop to pursue a wide range of outdoor activities including coasteering, climbing, cycling, diving, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and sailing.

The island's port is also in St Peter Port and is only a 10 minute walk to the city centre. The ferry terminal provides services to other Channel Islands, France and the UK mainland. The terminal building has many shops and restaurants.

Dielette Guide

The town and port of Dialette is located in Normandy, in the north west of France and lies on the English Channel coast. It is situated around 315 km from Paris and 75 km from Saint-Lo, and is the main departure port for ferry services to Guernsey and Alderney, two of the Channel Islands. The town, which sits amidst agricultural country and is the land of Calvados, Camembert and cider, has a small port which over recent years has been developed and is now a thriving marina.

The region of Upper Normandy (Haute-Normandie) is made up of the French departments of Seine-Maritime and Eure and Lower Normandy (Basse-Normandie) is made up of the departments of Orne, Calvados and Manche. The earlier province of Normandy was made up of the present day Upper and Lower Normandy, along with small areas that are now part of the departments of Eure-et-Loir, Mayenne and Sarth. The name is derived from the settlement of the area by Vikings ("Northmen") in the 9th century, and later confirmed by Treaty in the 10th century. Following the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Normandy and England were linked by Norman and Frankish rulers for around 150 years.

During the summer a high-speed passenger ferry is operated from Dialette to Alderney and Guernsey by Manche Iles Express.
