Jersey and its sights
Jersey is known across Europe and the world for its amazing sights and sublime natural landscapes. The island's historic castles are firm favourites among visitors. Mont Orgueil (also known as Gorey Castle) is an early 13th century castle built upon a site which had been fortified since prehistoric times. Elizabeth Castle is another incredible structure, a 16th century island fortress located in the sweeping St Aubin's Bay on the south coast.
Another awe-inspiring location is the immense La Hougue Bie. This stone construction is one of the largest neolithic graves and ritual sites in western Europe, dating back to over 5,500 years ago. All of these and more can be easily reached from a Jersey vacation rental.
