More about us

  1. We are a family of 3 persons (Richard, Nathalie and Hippolyte), we always travel with our son who is 12 years old. We love to discover the art, the crafts of each country. We like modern art, architecture, museums, visiting exhibitions and we enjoy other cultures. Sometimes we travel with one of our good friends.
    For nearly 10 years we live in a cool house in Aussillon in the Tarn - Midi Pyrénées, France.
    Mazamet Montagne Noire :
    Aussillon-Mazamet is a small town at the foot of Black Mountain in the Regional Natural Park of Haut Languedoc.

    We have already exchanged our home with two families : in San Francisco in 2011, in Japan in 2012 and in 2013 we were invited by the canadian/japanese family in Sicily.
