Our house war built in 1946. We totally renovated it in 2003 when we moved in. The house consists of 140 m2 oh living space, surrounded by 800 m of garden (party covered by trees). There is one immense tree and many play areas for the kids.
Built on 4 floors, the rooms are separated thus.
Basement : with service area and access to garden.
Ground floor : large living room (40 m2), open kitchen, small eating area and toilet.
First floor : bathroom (with bath), 3 rooms (parents, baby + bureau library, where a bed can be set up)
Attic : kids area 45 m2 (room with 2 beds)
Notre maison surplombe la petite ville valaisanne de Monthey. Elle est entourée d'un grand jardin (800 m2) ou poussent légumes, fleurs et quelques arbres fruitiers. La situation est très calme, même si nous nous trouvons à 400 m du centre ville, face aux sommes des Alpes.
Maison datant de 1946, sur 3 niveaux (rez, 1er étage + combles aménagés). Nous l'avons rénovée en 2003.
Our house is situated in the heights above the town, 300 meters from the center, but in very quite region. On a small road with little traffic. Fantastic view of the town (16’000 people), the Rhone plain and the Alps in the background.
The region is well served with public transports. Within 30 minutes, we are easily on the shores of Leman lake (Montreux); at the top of the mountains; or in the forest. A thousand and one things to do at your doorstep (swimming pool, beach, thermal baths, cycling, climbing mountaineering and working).
Switzerland being such a small country, one is very rapidly in one or other of the many touristy destinations (eg Lausanne 40 minutes, Geneva 1h10, Zermatt 1h30).
Quartier résidentiel de villas, tranquille proche du centre ville de MOnthey. Vue imprenable sur les Alpes.
We are a family of five. Ludovic (1 year), will soon be walking. Coralie (3 years) and Aurélien (5 years) started school. Patricia (37) is a nurse and Xavier (43) is a presenter / programmer with national Swiss broadcasting.
We have travelled a lot in Asia (India, Thailand, Laos, Burma, Indonesia, etc. ...). At the moment, we are concentrating on Europe until the children are a little older before returning to the tropics.
We would love to spend the summer 2008 in Netherlands (maybe at your home).
Nous sommes cinq (3 enfants de 5 ans, 3 ans et 1 année).
Nous avons beaucoup voyagé, principalement en Asie.
Nous aimons rire, la musique et les vacances improvisées.
