Refurbishment work at Archirondel Tower began in October 2016 and the project has not been without its challenges. The location of the tower has created huge logistical challenges to connect services such as heating and plumbing, and there has also been an extensive amount of archaeology to examine including a 10 inch thick concrete roof engineered by German Occupying Forces.
Once finished the tower will accommodate up to four people (two adults and two children) with a fully-equipped kitchen, shower room with toilet facilities, bedroom and comfortable living room. The renovation will also include roof access with unrivalled views across the east coast of Jersey including St Catherine’s break water.
As with most historical building projects, unforeseen problems can occur which can result in delays.
The Tower is now open for booking to stay from 1 July 2019.
