We parked on the port area and climbed one kilometer on very steep streets to finally find out the House was closed for renovation until 2019 spring. Disappointed and exhausted we took some picture from the front and indeed it would need some serious painting...More

A really fascinating home of Victor Hugo. The lovely guide brings it to life and you really feel the author might materialise at any moment in an historical hologram. In interior design terms it is amazing, with unusual decoration and textures everywhere you look. He...More

This place is absolutely fascinating, I have visited many times over the years...it would be a shame to visit Guernsey and not pay a visit to Victor Hugo's time capsule!

The garden is accessible and very pleasant. The house has rather rickety old stairs. They may let yo look in the dining room on the ground floor.
