Clos de la Tour Features
Clos de la Tour is an area of land owned by us, Julie and Mick Mann. It is tucked away in a peaceful but central location on Sark with the village center (known as The Avenue) being just a 2 minute walk away, and most of the eateries and public bars a 5 to 10 minute walk.
The self-catering properties at Clos de la Tour are also owned and managed by us and are set in our private gardens which we and our family members tend to. Whilst some of the garden areas are communal, each self catering property also has its own space with exclusive use of an outdoor dining table & chairs plus reclining garden chairs for each adult. La Chataigne is a detached house and has its own private gardens surrounding the house.
