Alan Rogers Review

Situated in the rural centre of the island, Fauxquets is in a pretty sheltered valley, hidden down narrow lanes away from busy roads and run by the Guille family assisted by friendly collie, Lottie. Originally part of a dairy farm, the valley side has now been developed into an attractive campsite. Plenty of ornamental trees, bushes and flowers have been planted to separate pitches and to provide shelter around the various fields which are well terraced. The 100 pitches are of a good size, most marked, numbered and with 6-32A electricity, offering a choice of pitches for tents and motorcaravans. There is lots of open space and some friendly farm animals in surrounding enclosures. The site has fully equipped tents for hire and two comfortable log cabins.

Reception at the entrance includes a small shop, and coffee and drinks are served here. A covered outdoor area provides somewhere to relax (with free WiFi) and a centre for regular organised gatherings with pizza or barbecues. There is plenty of room to sit around the heated swimming pool, including a large grassy terrace with sun beds provided. A car would be useful here to reach the beaches, Saint Peter Port and other attractions, although there is a bus service each day (20 minutes walk). The German Military Underground Hospital is nearby.
