Fly Guernsey are offering three nights for the price of two at the four star Bella Luce Hotel, in St Martins, on breaks between January 1st and March 27th.

The 12th century building has been restored to its former glories over the past three years and the 24 rooms prove this.

With 12 standard rooms, six premier rooms and six luxury rooms there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.

The hotel provides the ideal base for guest to explore the island which is famed for its stunning scenery and beautiful beaches.

Also renowned for its seafood, the island offers excellent options when it comes to dining out, while it also brews its own beer and cider.

The special offer price is £249 for three nights (including one night free) and is based on two sharing on a bed and breakfast option. Flights from Gatwick and airport parking are also included, while there is also a choice of alternative airports.
