ABOUT YOUR STAY IN SARK
From the moment you are welcomed after arriving by boat, time seems to slow down as you enter a realm of stunning landscapes, wild flora, picturesque hedgerows, lovely beaches and tranquil surroundings.
Yet as breathtaking as this unique and incredible feature of Sark is, there is so much more on offer on our magical island to experience and enjoy during your stay.
Built in 1700, Clos a Jaon was for generations a simple pair of cottages with an adjacent barn, built of Sark granite walls and thatched roofs. Having become uninhabited and fallen into disrepair over the centuries, the once beautiful properties enjoyed an initial restoration in the 1970s, before an ambitious project was undertaken in 2015 to completely renovate the buildings.
Four of our properties are located on the Clos a Jaon site: Le Grand, Le Petit, La Grange and Le Friquet. The fifth property, Chez Nous, is a short cycle away in the direction of the Point Robert Lighthouse.
Sympathetic changes have been made throughout to enhance the beauty and practicality of the properties, such as repointing the exterior walls to restore their condition to their original glory and increasing each bedroom’s space to ensure the most comfortable stay for our guests.
The first few steps off the boat are almost into another world – one where there are no street lamps or cars and there’s a breathtaking natural wonder on every corner.

“Just had the most amazing stay at Clos a Jaon (La Grange). The house is finished to a very high standard and is perfect for families/friends sharing. The house is perfectly situated in the middle of Sark, so no where is very far at all. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, with lots of gorgeous glassware and all the appliances/gadgets you could want. The whole property feels very cosy, modern and had been cleaned to a very high standard. The garden is very well sized has sun throughout the day and is very private. There is also a very comfortable rattan outdoor sofa set that is perfect for drinks/dinner outside. We had a wonderful trip and would not hesitate to book another stay at Clos a Jaon.”
