About our home

Our contemporary house (zinc roofing)is very recent, light and functional.The picture windows offer a nice wiew of Quimper.The residential area wher we live is particularly quiet and welcoming. Situated at the end of the quartier,the detached house opens on a large flowered field and a 19 century's chapel (la Chapelle de Cuzon). The site is exceptional because it's both very closed to the medieval and pedestrian city centre and near the countryside. A footpath is next to our entrance (100 m) and wends its way through the country.We also get a 1000sq mtrs planted with trees shut off plot.
The house first floor is also totally accessible to handicapped persons ( lowered doorsteps, large doors...).Beaches are at 9 kms. Pont-Aven, the famous painter's city is at 25 kms.


More about us

  1. We are a married couple, Christine and Alain. We have a teenager, Amber, aged 16 and Joachim, 9 years old. Alain is a speech therapist and a neuropsychologist, he rehabilitates children, young people but also older people with neurological deficits. For my part, I am a French teacher at the Lycée. We love to travel and find that discovering new ways of live enriches us. Exchange houses seems to be a good vehicle for cultural immersion as well as a smart and clever way to spend holidays.

    Nous sommes un couple marié, Christine et Alain. Nous avons une ado, Ambre, âgée de 16 ans et Joachim qui aura 10 ans cet été. Alain est orthophoniste et neuropsychologue, il rééduque les enfants, les jeunes mais aussi les personnes âgées atteintes de déficiences neurologiques. Pour ma part, je suis professeur de français au Lycée. Nous adorons voyager et découvrir de nouvelles façons de vivre pour nous enrichir. Echanger les maisons semble être un bon vecteur d'immersion culturelle et une manière intelligente de passer ses vacances.
