Alderney - An Island Home
Alderney - the third largest of the Channel Islands, measuring just 1.5 miles wide by 3 miles long. A peaceful, unspoiled sanctuary that has long been the pleasure of all who escape the "rat race" to visit every year.
It is said that Alderney has the friendliest inhabitants - and with only 2000 to meet, it's easy to see why. With a relaxed atmosphere and quiet lifestyle, the island is a special place that allows you to enjoy a vast history, rare wildlife and beautiful beaches - and all in a warm and gentle climate.
Close to France and the other Channel Islands, Alderney has good air-connections with daily flights to Southampton and Guernsey (with onward links to other major UK airports).
Like the other Channel Islands, Alderney benefits from a thriving e-commerce and offshore finance business sector and retains it's own government. However, unlike it's island counterparts, Alderney has very few restrictions when purchasing property.
