The small country of Jersey lies in the English Channel, 12 miles from France, and just under 100 miles from the south English coast.
The oceanic climate is similar to that of a pleasant summer in the Mediterranean, with mild winters and warm summers.
Jersey boasts long sandy bays, steep cliffs and cavernous valleys which cut through the terrain.
The standard of living is one of the highest known, and the convenient location to mainland Europe and the UK has led to its growing popularity for the business community.
Whilst Jersey relies heavily on tourism as a source of income, the island is recognised as a leading offshore financial centre.
With the absence of VAT, luxury goods are often cheaper providing an incentive for tourism, and the growth of the fulfilment industry, such as videos, lingerie and contact lenses.
Major agricultural products, such as potatoes and dairy produce, add to the economic success of the country.
