Breathtaking. Magical. Untouched. Timewarp. Just a few of the words often applied to Sark; a tiny (Just 3.25 miles long by 1.5 miles wide), colourful, enchanting little island nestling between England and France, yet which feels like neither. In fact, Sark – lying just 80 miles off the South Coast and the smallest of the four main Channel Islands at just a handful of square miles – feels like nowhere else you’ve ever been.
Thanks in part to its well-known absence of any cars, and with no airport and only the occasional tractor for supplies, visitors immediately sense how different life is on this haven from anywhere else.
From the moment you are welcomed after arriving by boat, time seems to slow down as you enter a realm of stunning landscapes, wild flora, picturesque hedgerows, lovely beaches and tranquil surroundings.
Quiet lanes end in spectacular coastline, with undulating coastline, rocky outcrops and ancient granite houses scattered around to catch the eye amid your breathtaking surroundings.
A Crown dependency since the days of Elizabeth the First, Sark falls under the sovereignty of the UK without actually being part of it, and its less than 500 inhabitants remain fiercely independent yet deeply welcoming to guests.
Regarded as something of a secret jewel among the Channel Islands, the island has successfully resisted commercial exploitation whilst enjoying a high standard of living. In fact, the high standard of luxurious accommodation offered by Clos a Jaon ensures that visitors can combine the magic of the Sark experience without sacrificing any creature comforts.
In addition to the sort of scenery that renders visitors speechless, Sark recently gained worldwide attention for a virtually unique quality, having been awarded the status of the World’s first ‘Dark Sky Island’.
