More about us

  1. Hello, We are a married couple, Xavier (35) is a manager in IT and Riselaine (34) is a history and geography teacher in high school. We have two children, Naïm (5) and Zackari (3).
    We love travelling, we have been in very different countries (Canada, Italy, England, Spain, Morocco, US, Indonesia, Greece, Germany...) and we would like to keep discovering new cultures and people with our children. We love to visit museums and we are also fond of art, movies, sport and theatre. We are open to any destination, so don't hesitate to contact us. We have been living in Nantes for 3 years after 11 years spent in Paris.
    We would be very happy to help you discover Nantes, its region and Paris if you want to take a little trip there. Paris is 2h by train from Nantes.
    We will take care of your home as we would take care of ours.
    We had a fabulous exchange with Canada in summer 2013, it has been a fantastic experience.
    We are looking for a simulteanous exchange during christmas holidays 2017, ideally 8-10 days between the 26/12 and the 06/01 in a place with snow. We would like to make our children discover a snow place as we have never been to it, in France or anywhere else.
    This year we could travel with our au pair girl Maeve that is 22 years old (to be confirmed).
    Feel free to contact us!

Where is it?


Our house is located 200m from the tramway that leads you in 10min to the center of Nantes. In 3 minutes by walk you can buy your bread at the bakery, and 5 minutes by walk there is a supermarket. There is a swimming pool 5 minutes away from home by walk.
Nantes is an historical place with its famous castle and charming buildings. Nantes is the biggest town in the North West of France where you can also find good shopping and nightlife if you are interested in that ! The region of Nantes is also famous for its vineyard with the "Muscadet" wine (we can give you some good adresses). We are also not far from the Atlantic Ocean (the famous seaside resort La Baule is only 45min by car) and from Brittany (Vannes, Rennes...: 1 hour by car). We come from Brittany and our family lives there so if you are interested to make a roadtrip there, we will be able to give you the best places to visit.
The nearest beach is 45mn by car. There are really nice towns on the Atlantic Coast between 45mn - 1 hour from our house: Pornic, Piriac sur Mer, Guerande, Le Croisic...- 30 mn from the wildlife park "Planete Sauvage" in the south of Nantes, 1 hour by car from the amusement park "Le Puy du Fou" in Vendée and 2 hours by car from the amusement park "Le Futuroscope" in Poitiers.
