A few kilometres off the Cotentin coast, the Channel Islands form a territory spanning some 195 km2, a blend of British traditions and Normandy roots. The archipelago has five main islands and enjoys a very mild oceanic climate. Lovers of the great outdoors will appreciate the beauty of these islands, some of which are very wild, such as Aurigny, Sercq and Herm. The vast bays of fine sand edged by crystal waters, great expanses of windswept green moors and the abrupt granite cliffs plunging into the sea produce sumptuous and unique landscapes. In their preserved natural setting, the Channel Islands are uncut diamonds to be enjoyed without moderation.
