St Martin’s is the best of all worlds, making it one of the most desirable parishes to live in. It’s just up the hill from Town, but feels like the countryside. The parish’s most famous beach is Moulin Huet, where Renoir was inspired to create 15 paintings in the summer of 1883.

St Martin’s has quiet country lanes and beautiful cliff walks. The word ‘stunning’ gets thrown around a lot in Guernsey, but St Martin’s really lives up to it with exceptional scenery. From Jerbourg Point, marking the south-easterly tip of Guernsey, there are beautiful views across the Little Russel to Herm, Jethou, Brecqhou, Sark, Jersey, and the coast of France.
“I love living in St Martin’s, our beaches are stunning, cliff walks are on our doorstep, there is a choice of pubs and restaurants and a lovely sense of community. The village has three supermarkets, two dental practices, a doctors surgery, amongst other convenient shops, there is a parish church and primary school which is extremely well regarded.”
