More about us

  1. Didier is a University Professor in Statistics (also jazz guitarist and private pilot). Sabine is a music teacher in National Music school (flute). We have 3 children, 14, 17 and 20, and we are 4 or 5 travelers for summer 2019 (our 20 years old son may not travel with us).
    We already experienced several successful exchanges in Europe: Amsterdam, Madrid, Copenhagen, England and south of France, and outside Europe in Washington DC (USA) and Montreal (Canada).

    For summer 2020, we are looking for an exchange in the San Francisco Bay Area (CA, USA).
    We are also open for exchanges in France or in big cities in Europe (preferably Germany, Austria, or Scandinavia) for the small vacations (Toussaint (October-November), X'mas, Easter).

At 30mn driving from the Castle of Chenonceaux, and not far from others (Azay-le-Rideau, Ussé, Angers...).
