  1. We are a couple of physiotherapists, 30-year-old Dorothée, and Alexandre, age 38. We got married this winter and have a 18-month-old girl, Marie. We like sports: ski of course (Alexandre is the french skiteam's physiotherapist and a ski teacher too), mountainhiking, windsurfing. We like travelling in autumn and in spring, often in places allowing us to go hiking, or to go windsurfing. Our house is our main home, but can be lent all year long, our family lives near by and can accommodate us if we need. We built this house with respect for the nature (solar heating, tank of recycling rainwater, natural materials). We will take care of your house as if it was ours! We are ready to study any proposition of exchange, in France and abroad, city, beach, mountain!
