Owner description: Author Victor Hugo's home while living in Guernsey during a 15-year self-imposed exile.

I was never that interested in Victor Hugo but on reading about the house, I was intrigued. I have to say that he was very much ahead of his time and very creative. I loved the decor of the various rooms and the unusual and personal touches here and there. Well worth a visit!

Superb guided tour of Victor Hugo's House during exile. I knew nothing about Victor, other than he wrote Les Miserables. What an amazing eye opener.

Well what an amazing place, we weren't sure we could get in as it is guided tour only but they let us in with a guide all to ourselves, this was good as to get there we had to walk up quite a steep hill but boy was it worth it.
The fee was just £7.00 each and well worth it the young guide was knowledgeable and interesting the house itself is stunning and bizarre all at the same time with no two rooms the same. The views from the windows to the rear were to die for and some of the quirky features of the house were really unusual, we came away and found ourselves grinning because it had been such a nice visit

No wonder Victor Hugo had heat success with his writings.
His wonderful glass room at the top of his home with the excellent sea view would certainly inspire anyone to write great works
