About our home

Our home is 200 m2 beautifully renovated apartment in a historic building in downtown Clermont-Ferrand. The large, sunny kitchen is fully equipped and seats six people. The dining room seats eight people. Our apartment is ideal for a family with children. The bedrooms of our four boys have numerous toys and (comic) books. We have a large family room with TV, computer, and lots of playmobil, legos and brio trains. There is a spacious terrace right next to the kitchen with parasol for dining outside. Our guests can park their car in our two-car garage. There is wifi available in the house and in the yard. We would love to go to Greece or Spain during the school vacations in Oct-Nov (2010) or in April (2011; see specific dates that we have listed). We'd also like to spend Christmas vacation in London.

More about us

  1. My wife and I are both university professors, affiliated with the French "Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique". Together we speak many languages and we love to travel and meet new people. We have four well-behaved boys, aged 15, 14, 9, and 7. We have exchanged our house many times in the past ten years, and have always had positive experiences. My wife is American, I am German, and we have lived in Clermont-Ferrand for 12 years. The older boys do not always travel with us, so sometimes we are four and sometimes we are six.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Clermont-Ferrand is an authentic French city with a medival center. Our apartment is 300m from the Place de Jaude, the central square of Clermont-Ferrand. On the other side of the place is the historic downtown area with boutiques, markets, and pedestrian area. The "Parc des Volcans", a natural reserve with more than 80 volcanoes, is less than 15 minutes by car away. The Parc is a great place to go hiking, mountain biking, paragliding, and swimming in the lakes. In winter, this is where we go skiing, both downhill and cross country. The amusement/discovery park "Vulcania" is 25 minutes by car. The Auvergne region - by many considered to be one of the most beautiful regions of France - has historic villages that have remained undiscovered by the average tourist. There are many Michelin-starred restaurants in the city and around the city, and thermal spas in the nearby towns (Volvic is just 15 km away). A spa that offers 2,5 hours of the use of all facilities and is particularly nice is just a five minute drive away (http://www.royatonic.com/).
