Sea Crossings


Just as you have taken great care with the selection of your holiday property and destination, we believe that the choice of travel arrangements is equally individual: some may opt for a short hop across the Channel, perhaps taking a few days’ leisurely drive through France; others may prefer the relaxation of a longer crossing, spending one or two nights at sea.
