France Holiday Rentals - About Us
So who are we? Well, as I mentioned in our Home Page, France Holiday Rentals was started by six friends all of whom share a love of this fabulous country and have enjoyed many holidays here both together and separately many many times over the years.
My name is Simon Kerridge and I spent many happy summer holidays in France with my family when I was a child. This led me to making a permanent move to France in 2001. I got married here in 2003 and have two wonderful bilingual children who were both born here.
I live in the Department of Herault in the Languedoc region of France and cannot recommend a holiday to this wonderful country highly enough.
I don’t live in France, but have spent many a holiday there and have driven down through and across the whole country several times.
I particularly love the cultural centre of Paris and the medieval walled city of Carcassonne, not to mention the sun, sand and sea of the resorts in the Cote d’Azur.
I've been travelling to France all of my life both for business and pleasure. I'm based in South London and have been to the Le Mans area several times, the South East and South West of France countless times and have skiied in the French Alps.
I have taken in the sights of Paris and Lille on more than one occasion, been to the First World War trenches, done day trips to Calais and Boulogne and driven the length and breadth of this diverse country on touring holidays, so hope my input into this website will be of use to many people.
I run my own computer aided draughting and design business within the construction industry and live & work in and around the Surrey/London area.
Having visited France from a young age it has always been my first choice for a quick break away. The Le Mans 24 hour race has been a particularly favourite jaunt for me in the last few years. I am also very fond of the Cote d'Azur around Cannes.
France is definitely our family holiday destination of choice. From spending a weekend paddling on the beach at Le Touquet to exploring the wine regions of Burgundy by car, we all enjoy our time in France.
Our children like nothing better than walking to the Boulangerie in the morning to buy fresh croissants for breakfast and love practising their French on the locals. The fantastic road network and the frequency of flights from the UK mean that France is easily accessible and a perfect choice for any family.
Having spent several months living in Aix-en-Provence as part of my European Business degree, I had the opportunity to travel significantly within France, and got to know many areas very well.
I have always loved the country and everything it has to offer and for the past 20 years I have regularly visited France, initially with friends and now with my young family, and have found that it has something to suit everyone.
