Pictures France and Channel Islands

 Channel France Online Magazine


Channel France provides information and an online magazine about France, particularly Brittany and Normandy as well as some information about the nearby Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark.  The site contents are aimed at new and regular visitors to France, second home owners, Channel Islanders and those thinking of relocating or already resident in France. Visitors from elsewhere in the world are welcome too!   This site was created to be fun, interesting and sometimes amusing to site visitors.  This site does not set out to act as an authority on the subjects herein.  The site was created in 2003 and has not been updated for some years so some information will be out of date.  Information can also change particularly as regards dates and locations without our knoweldge in any case.  We stress - please do not rely on the information being up to date as we  have kept the site online as a great deal of the information is interesting to site visitors and it would be sad if it is lost.
