About our home

WE HAVE AN EXCHANGE FOR SUMMER 2008, however would be open to future dates (spring, summer 2009).
Ours is a warm and cozy 3 bedroom house, with an enclosed garden and access to literally endless opportunities for hikes, horseback riding and bike riding in the hills directly behind our home (you need only walk out the back gate). A word to the wise, it is hot in Provence in the summer (35° Celcius), so activities are best early morning or late afternoon. The house has all the standard modern amenities (dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, stereo, television) plus an upright Steinway and wireless access. Our neighbors are very friendly as well! We do have two cats that live at the house.


More about us

  1. Hello! We are a family of four, 2 adult academics and two teens in secondary school (U.S. equivalent of 11th and 10th grade). We have all traveled extensively, including a year exchange in a sabbatical home in the States. We are specifically looking for a home exchange in Ireland this year. We love animals (have dogs, cats and a horse) and can provide care for where necessary. Though we have our own, we can arrange to have our dogs (golden retrievers) kept while you are at our home.

Where is it?


Our home is in a suburban neighborhood (Château Gombert, in the east of Marseille), very calm and nestled in the foothills of the "Etoile" a mountain range between Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. Summers are generally quite hot here, making use of our above ground pool a pleasure! The outside terrace provides a wonderful dining room all summer long. The beach in Marseille is 30 min by car or 45 by public transport. You can reach the nearby city of Marseille by metro in 10 minutes, that of Aix-en-Provence by car in 40, and other beautiful places (Cassis, Aubagne, Avignon; etc). in an hour.
