Travel guide

Victor Hugo’s land of exile.

Only a few dozen kilometers from the Normandy coast, along with its acolyte Jersey, it was Victor Hugo’s land of exile. Dramatic and quiet, it now attracts visitors. Walk to Moulin Huet Bay, visit Castle Cornet, just a stone’s throw from St Peter’s town center, and stroll along the ramparts, from where the view of the neighboring islands is splendid!
