About our home

Hello! We live in a large renewed old house in the nice countryside between the French Alps and the Rhone valley. We live 5 (2 adults and our 3 children Marie, 22, Lucile 20 and Noé 16). Our house accommodates 10 very comfortably, and up to 14 and more for family/friends parties, with additional bedding. In summer it is very pleasant to live outside, as our house is 150m away from a little road with very few vehicles. It is so very quiet. We are equipped with many outside games, as badminton, table tennis, child swings, child pool, bow and arrow, petanque, sand box, bikes etc... Our garden is 5000m2 with different trees. We have 2 cats, but if you do not want to take care of them we can put them at grandma's. Inside the house, many games electronic and traditional for all ages, books, comics, 2 PC with internet connection, music instruments....very convenient for children, we use to have a lot of family friends at home all year long. We have two cars, one of which carries 8 very comfortably.


More about us

  1. Emmanuel (electronics engineer) and Catherine (graphist) we are both 50, our three kids have grown up (22, 20 and 16), but they still like to go on holidays with us. We had a first exchange with a Finnish family in Helsinki 6 years ago, and a second with a German one in Berlin 2 years ago, and everything was fine. The Finnish family enjoyed meeting their Spanish friends in our house, the German one particularly enjoyed a fabulous Leonard Cohen show in the old roman theatre in Vienna...
    For summer 2012 we have already arranged a swap in London, so at this time we are not looking for a particular exchange for 2012.
