About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Christine Swetnam

Both born and raised in North Staffordshire we enjoyed many holidays in France from when our family were young, starting with mobile homes with Eurocamp and graduating to renting villas in many areas from Brittany to Messanges. We enjoy the freedom to do what we want every day with complete flexibility over eating in or out and spending the day relaxing, adventuring or exploring. We like ferry travel because it allows us to bring whatever any of us want and to take lots of wine back.

Around 40 minutes to Lourdes to visit the shrine and town, and to the Pyrenees with lovely walks, cycling on the Route de France, spectacular views and wonderful towns and villages not to mention the ski centres.
