The 3rdAgeHolidays.com website is operated by Linda & Derek Williams trading under a partnership, Culture Breaks LLP.
We live in Swansea near the beautiful Gower coastline. Linda enjoys a broad mix of U3A activities including Conversational French, Art and Softball Tennis. Derek programs various web sites (including this one of course!) and in his spare time enjoys playing golf at our local club, Clyne Golf Club in Swansea.
We are totally independent of the U3A organisation and they have no connection with us. However, our intention is to make this website a helpful resource for U3A members and we encourage feedback from all users (whether you are a U3A member or not).
With our family spread around the UK and Europe we enjoy travelling and having as many holidays as we can pack into our busy schedule. So yes, we have an ulterior motive in building this website in that we will use it ourselves to contact members to arrange visits to vary our holiday destinations. With modern communications we can travel whilst still being on top of all that needs doing to maintain this site so if you do need to contact us then please use any of the methods on our Contact page.
We are working to encourage new 3rd Age Holiday membership from U3A (or other similar) groups in overseas territories and will of course eventually support pages in a range of languages. Meanwhile we have included the Google Translate facility at the top right hand corner of each page where other languages may be selected. We appreciate that this translate facility does not understand the context of some terms but we hope it will be enough for non-English speakers to understand the various pages of this web site. If any of you reading this have friends in distant locations that you think would be interested in joining us then do please pass on our website address. We look forward to hearing from you!
Sometimes, you don't have to go abroad to find a fabulous holiday beach!
