Arrival and departure:


In high summer it is very likely that other guests will be departing on the day you arrive.  For this reason as a rule it will not normally be possible to have full access to the cottage until 3pm.  We offer a complimentary collection at the airport on arrival and if you arrive earlier than 3pm we are more than happy to meet you at the airport when you arrive to show you where the cottage is and relieve you of your luggage so that you can go off and enjoy the day and come back when the cottage is ready.  If your party arrives in more than one group we will pick up the first group and leave you to organise the rest.



Equally, as there will often be incoming guests the same day you leave we would appreciate it if you could vacate the cottage by 10am.  If you are not leaving the island until later in the day bags can be left in our garage or utility room until you wish to collect them.  It is a good idea to book your taxi to the airport the day before.

Local directions to cottage:

From the airport drive out of the car park and turn right onto the road towards St Anne town.  Keep going straight on keeping left where the road forks and takes you into Marais Square (the Marais pub is on your right as you enter the square).  Go straight across the square and up the Venelles (Venelles des Gaudions), a little narrow road to begin with, and keep going until you reach a junction where the road takes a left hand turn.  At the next crossroads turn right into Longis Road (Rue de Longis) - the telecommunications pylon will be on your left just as you turn into Longis  Road.  Keep on going all the way down Longis Road to Longis Bay - as you start coming down a hill you will see the sea and Longis Beach ahead of you.  Go straight on at the Nunnery crossroads, then you will have the beach on your right with a high concrete wall, and the common to your left.  We are the fifth house you will see on the common after the crossroads.  At the entrance to our driveway is a large upright stone and opposite the turning is a bench.  Follow the drive up to the house and park towards the right as you enter the parking area.  Please drive slowly up our drive as our dogs, and often our neighbours' dogs, will come running when cars drive up.
