A successful event requires a suitably impressive and remarkable venue – and Hotel d'Angleterre really fits the bill. Overlooking the sparkling waters of Lake Geneva and with grand interiors, exceptional service and a choice of rooms to suit your requirements, the stage is set for success.
Our history runs deep. Even our meeting spaces have incredible stories to tell, from the blue-walled “Louise”, named after Princess Louise who fell in love right here with her Belgian teacher and renounced her Austrian title, to the classic, gentlemen’s club-like Cigar Lounge, or the vibrant Leopard Lounge. The Salon Parquet, meanwhile, is an elegant room with original 19th century flooring and golden chandeliers, with the fittingly awe-inspiring backdrop of the lake just outside.

She is passionate about our island and loves talking to people about the fascinating history.

Le Tetre, the home of Jerry and Gill Girard, has been in the Girard family for generations since the early 1600s. It was quite common for the earlier generations to build a more "modern" house when times were good and the family now live in a Victorian villa built alongside the old house. The original farmhouse still stands on the property, built of locally quarried pink granite. Cider-making was an old Guernsey tradition for many of the farmers during the last few centuries. Jerry's father donated part of the cider press to the Folk Museum in Saumarez Park but the press itself is still on the property in le prinsaeux.
Walk with Gill from the Folk Museum in Saumarez Park to see the old cider press at Le Tetre. Wander through the lanes and medieval tracks to their family home and enjoy a taste of local produce served in the garden overlooking the west coast. Sample local cheeses, local cider, apple juice, chocolate fudge, sloe gin and more whilst sharing anecdotes about the history of the property and Guernsey farming traditions. Enjoy the family’s hospitality before your transport arrives to take you back to the hotel.

You will have a private viewing of the tapestry with its curator, Andrew Warry and local guide Gill Girard. After viewing the tapestry, enjoy Champagne and canapés with Gill, hearing more of her family's anecdotal history.
