We'd love to come to Paris for Christmas!! Or Sydney/New Zealand in September school holidays.
Ma famille et moi aimerions aller à Paris parce que mon fils et moi apprenons le français depuis quelques mois. J’aimerais parler le français bien. Je suis désolé en avance pour mes erreurs de grammaire, je suis une débutante.
Nous habitons à Brisbane, qui est située sur la côte Est de l’Australie, au Nord de Sydney (à 1000km). Brisbane est une grande ville. Il y a une rivière, des ponts, un musée d'Art, un musée des sciences et beaucoup de bons restaurants. Il y a beaucoup de choses à faire et à voir.
Ma maison est dans un quartier de Brisbane qui s’appelle St Lucia, 10 minutes (en voiture) à l’ouest du centre-ville. Nous sommes aussi très près de l'université de Queensland. Il y a des centre commerciaux et des parcs très près de chez nous.
Nous avons une belle maison qui était construite en 2015. Elle a 5 chambres, une piscine, un jardin et d’ici on voit de très beaux paysages.

Our gorgeous architect designed home was completed in the beginning of 2015. Although it is new, we feel it is a very warm and inviting home with many lovely features that makes you always feel you are on holiday! It features stunning views of Brisbane city and is close to public transport. The city is only 10 minutes by car and a lovely 15 minute ride by "City Cat" (ferry) on the Brisbane river. St Lucia is a quiet, leafy suburb very close to The University of Queensland. There are also churches of many faith's, within walking distance. Restaurants and convenience stores are a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk from our home. There is a major shopping centre (Indooroopilly Shopping Town) within a 10 minute drive - it is a shopping paradise! Our house is in an ideal location, far enough out of the city to see it as a stunning view and away from it's hustle and bustle, yet close enough to be in it's centre within 20 minutes, depending on how you decide to get there. Brisbane is a beautiful, vibrant city with many things to see and do. A gorgeous parkland is located at Southbank, 5 minutes from the city and was especially built for families. It features many restaurants, both family friendly and 5 star, a man made lagoon for swimming and many playgrounds, including the Brisbane 'eye'. Brisbane is located 40 minutes north from the world renowned Gold Coast with its pristine beaches and 1.5hrs south of The Sunshine Coast. A pleasant drive will see you at Australia Zoo, The Big Pineapple, The Glasshouse Mountains and many other tourist destinations. A little further north (6 hours) will see you at the stunning Whitsunday Islands and the gateway to The Great Barrier Reef. Brisbane is a fantastic base to start exploring the vast tourist destinations within South East Queensland.
Our house is on three levels. It features 5 bedrooms. The main bedroom with a king bed and ensuite is on the top floor with another 3 single bedrooms. The 2nd level is the entry level and contains all living areas that are equipped with a state of the art intergrated sound system. Access to the pool and entertaining areas is on this level. The lower level contains another queen sized bedroom with ensuite and steam room. The house can sleep 7 people comfortably. There are two living rooms and an American style kitchen/dining and scullery (butlers kitchen). It has a lovely entertaining area to the rear of the house overlooking the city view and pool. The house has electronic security and Wifi is available.
We are non-smokers and do insist that there is no smoking anywhere on the property.
We are very confident you will have a fantastic time here in Australia, particularly in Brisbane and our home.
