Our fixed phone line is not working

If you need to contact us by phone please use John Grimmett’s mobile +33 6 1325 3283.

We terminated our fixed contract with Orange and the transfer to SFR, our new supplier, was supposed to be seamless, as we think it always would be in the UK. Not so in France apparently. We have been cut off by Orange but not yet connected by SFR, who seem impossible to contact unless one is physically in France.
