More about us

  1. We are a family of 4, we are 2 adults of 43 plus our two boys aged 13, 10. I work in the nuclear insurance, managing loss control so I travel the world most of the time but work from home when not, my wife works for a supplementary pension fund company. We have already travelled to many countries over the past 17 years (backpacking in the first years), and several times to the US.

    This is our first exchange. We treat our home with respect. Our children are well behaved and we will take great care of your home. We are non smokers. Of course, we would expect the same in return, so that no one gets bad surprises when coming back home. Feel free to contact us !

    We have a 5-seater Renault Megane Scenic Manual drive with AC that may be made available in case of need for local use.

Where is it?


Our house is located in one of the most exclusive and quiet neighborhoods of Toulouse. It is 15-20 min walk to city center. It is about 500m from the 'Canal du Midi', named part of mankind's heritage by UNESCO. We usually jog or cycle there.

There is a wide range of shopping facilities within walking distance (supermarket, food stores, excellent butcher, bakery for fresh morning bread, pastry, wine cellar,cheese store), we also usually go to the Sunday market place in town along the canal for fresh eggs and vegetables.

TOULOUSE: Toulouse is France's fourth largest city, it is sunny, warm and beautiful, very active city, of human size, with very nice architecture. It is a symbol of top-quality lifestyle.. It has several fine museums ( ) . It has very nice historical downtown and of course a multitude of restaurants (south west France is renowned for its cuisine). Toulouse is known for Rugby. Toulouse is also the counter part of Seattle for aircraft manufacturing as this is where Airbus is building the A380, the largest commercial aircraft, so in case you are fond of aircrafts you can visit the plant and also the board the Concorde.
AROUND TOULOUSE: Albi and Cordes are worth a day-trip. Easy day trips to the Pyrenees Mountains range that makes the border between France and Spain. You can actually be in the mountains in 1hr15, to the medieval city of Carcassonne (45min), to Mediterranean beaches (1h30min).
