Set on a cliff top overlooking Corbière lighthouse on Jersey's south-west tip, the Radio Tower provides stunning self-catering accommodation over six floors and boasts a 360-degree view.

The Radio Tower is one of Jersey's most iconic sites and is one of our most popular with visitors and residents alike. Standing on the south-west tip of Jersey's shoreline, the tower has the most amazing views from the lounge, no matter what the weather.

Built during the Second World War by German Occupying Forces, the tower has been sympathetically restored in a German modernist Bauhaus style with a concrete staircase winding through the centre of the building over six floors to a wooden spiral staircase which takes you to the top floor. Original features include observation slots on the seaward side and steel doors on the ground floor. From 1976, the Tower was adapted for use by States of Jersey Harbours and Airport Committee who added the panoramic, glass-panelled control room so duty officers could monitor radio communication for vessels using the English Channel.

The second to fourth floors house three identical double bedrooms, each customised within the rounded walls of the tower with fitted wardrobes and their own adjacent showroom and WC. The kitchen, with an additional WC, occupies the fourth floor and is fitted with modern appliances and custom worktops. The observation deck overlooks not only the stunning bay of St Ouen along Jersey's west coast, but also the iconic Corbierè Lighthouse, built in 1873. If you arrive to the Island by ferry from the south coast of England, the Lighthouse will be the first landmark you see.

Please be aware that the Tower has a number of stairs and a narrow spiral staircase at the top accessing the living area.

The Jersey region

The Channel Islands are magical islands in the Bay of St Malo and at the closest point Jersey is just 14 miles from the French coast. Warmed by the waters of the Gulf Stream, spring arrives early and summer lingers on. The weather here consistently tops the UK resort charts for sunshine hours and temperature.

Jersey is well known for its magnificent sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, sheltered coves and crystal clear waters. Inland, winding, shaded lanes take you through wooded valleys and patchwork countryside.

La Corbiere

Corbière is the extreme south west tip of Jersey with a rugged coastline and dramatic views out to sea and across the sweeping St Ouen's Bay. Jersey is thoroughly British but with a distinct French flavour. Although firecely loyal to the Crown for more than 800 years, the French influence lingers on in local surnames and place and street names. The capital St Helier is packed with continental style bistros, restaurants and pavement cafes.

You do not need a passport to visit the Channel Islands unless you intend taking a day trip to France which is a short hop away by sea or air. You will need proof of identity for flights and sea travel to the Island. As on the UK mainland the currency is sterling but Euros are accepted in many shops and other outlets.

There is plenty to do in the Island from guided walks to a visit to one of Jersey Heritage's six historic sites, Durrell or the Jersey War Tunnels. Day excursions can also be made to the other islands.

"You want somewhere different to stay? Well, this is it. Terrific."

What a terrific place to stay, fantastic veiws and such a novel experience, may not suit everyone, especially if you do not like stairs, 71 from bottom to top, so you need to have a reasonable level of mobility. Once settled in you can just watch the world go by, sun rise to sun set. Landscape photographers dream location, not to mention good food, beer and walks all on your doorstep. Something you should try at least once anyway. Would we go again? We most certainly would.

"2008 - The one unique holiday rental"

We already went there in 2008, but this is still THE holiday rental of all times in the experience of all participants. When I rented it I told the group it was special, but I wasn't going to tell them more, so when we rode up to the tower the first reactions weren't enthusiastic - it does look ugly from the outside, even though even right there you could see the LOCATION was terrific. Then we climbed up to the living space - and I was afraid they weren't going to come down again to unpack the car, ever ! We have spent do many hours up there, regardless of the time of day, the wheather.... it was always fantastic. We still talk about it a lot, the pictures are on everybodies walls.... unique ! Not to forget about all of beatiful Jersey all around us of course ! And the Jersey Ice Cream Van that came to the parking lot for the lighthouse everyday was a MUST, too
