  • "Smooth experience"

    I have recently travelled to France & back via the Victor Hugo from Jersey. This was my second experience & once again as last year, was a pleasurable experience. Yes you have to queue to collect your boarding ticket, but other than that, found the experience to be be very relaxing. The boat crew are very friendly & did not wince carrying my 20k suitcase down the steps & onto the boat. The seats are very roomy & comfortable onboard & there is a basic refreshment bar & duty free to keep you occupied during the 1 hour 5 minute crossing & the staff speak great English, if you are like me & your French is poor! Made to feel welcome & the crew always say goodbye as you disembark & if like me you have bulky luggage, you will find it waiting for you on the quayside when you get off. Perfect!!

Carteret Guide

The French town and port of Carteret is located in the north west of the country and is the most ancient parts of Barneville-Carteret which date back to Roman times. An interesting site is the motte-and-bailey castle that is located behind the church is the village of Barneville. The castle was named the "hillock of Mallet" after the surname of Mallet de Carteret and Barneville. The square bell tower of the church has a parapet on blind arches, and was besieged by the English in September 1499. The modern town became a popular tourist resort in the late 19th and early 20th centuries during which time it was classified a tourist town.

The Port of Carteret is the present port of Barneville-Carteret and is located on the right bank of the mouth of the Gerfleur River, at the end of Cape Carteret. The large pier and south dike were completed in 1880; the following year, a ferry began service to Jersey. In 1945 the small port, used as a shelter for fishermen during spring tide, was enlarged with the help of combat engineers from the American 280th Battalion stationed in Carteret.
