Top Awards for Sark Hotels
THREE HOTELS on the tiny Channel Island of Sark have each been awarded three stars from the Sustainable Restaurant Association – the first time their restaurants applied for membership.
The SRA said La Moinerie Hotel, the Hotel Petit Champ and the Aval du Creux Hotel – scooped its highest star ratings because of their recycling initiatives and year-round use of seasonal produce for their menus.
Hotel guests on Sark can now claim to have the lowest carbon footprints in the Channel Islands – and some of the lowest in Europe.
Chefs within the Sark Island Hotels group – owned by Sark Estate Management – can source an abundance of ingredients from an island that is three miles by one-and-a-half miles in size.
SEM’s own kitchen gardens and greenhouses supply a wide range of summer seasonal vegetables and salad varieties. Honey is harvested from its beehives in the newly-planted apple orchards, while fresh bread comes from its own bakery, the Victor Hugo Boulangerie
