About our home

WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR A LONG TERM EXCHANGE TO THE UK OR SPAIN FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2012-2013.

Our family home is located in a quiet residential area in the heart of Marseille, with a garden and small swimming pool. This east/west facing house was built in the 1920s, and its thick walls keep it comfortably cool even in blistering summer heat. It is a spacious 170sqm house, sleeps 9 in total. Ground floor: 1 bedroom (double bed) + large office with double sofa bed, 1 bathroom and separate toilet, lounge and fitted kitchen/dining room. First floor: 3 bedrooms (1 with double bed, 1 with bunk beds and a single bed and 1 with 1 single bed) 1 bathroom and separate toilet. In the garden we have lemons, figs and apricots which you are most welcome to eat if they're ripe when you stay. Private garage. Broadband Internet. Car exchange possible too. Our friendly cleaner can pop in and take the stress out of your stay by cleaning while you are here and/or on your departure.

More about us

  1. My husband (Jean) is French and I (Fiona) am British and we have 5 children (aged 9 - 1). Our children are very well behaved, they are used to travelling with us. We want to teach them the fun of discovering other cultures and meeting other people. The idea of a home exchange seems to suit our lifestyle perfectly! We look forward to having you stay in our home.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We are located right in the heart of the city, but just 15 minutes walk from the beach, or also from the Vieux Port (marina). You can discover most of Marseilles' attractions on foot (the typical Panier neighbourhood, the hidden Malmousque cove, Notre Dame de la Garde etc.).
A 15 minute boat trip will also take you from the Vieux Port to the eery Chateau d'If made famous by Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo, and to the Frioul rocky islands, the ideal place for beach combing, snorkeling, hiking and exploring.
Distances:
Airport = 30 minutes drive
Provence region = 1 hour drive.
Cote d'Azur (Nice, Cannes) = 2 hours drive
Alps main ski resorts = 3 hours drive
Paris = 3 hours by train
