The "Bailliage de Guernesey" (as it is known in French) is heavily influenced by the proximity to France, indeed French was the official language until the twentieth century. Just 45km (28 miles) from Normandy, it still has Gallic ambience with street names "en francais" and culinary flair. Listen carefully and you may even hear the ancient local dialect of Dgernesiais (Norman patois). Lush botanical gardens, alluring hidden coves, and glorious sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean give it a distinctly sub-tropical feel, and there are plenty of quirky gems for the visitor to explore such as the Little Chapel and Castle Cornet - whilst another little patch of France comes in the form of Victor Hugo's house (owned by the city of Paris), with visitors from all over the world.
As a bailiwick, Guernsey embraces not only the ten parishes of Castel, Forest, St Andrew, St Martin, St Peter Port, St Pierre du Bois, St Sampson, St Saviour, Torteval and Vale; but also the islands of Alderney and Sark (each with its own parliament) and the smaller islands of Herm, Jethou and Lihou.
