“Notre échange avec la Belgique a été l’occasion de rencontrer Femke qui est hollandaise et Tony qui est anglais ! Cela traduit bien le cosmopolitisme de Bruxelles ! Un beau moment de convivialité et d’échange …. Nous ne vous recommandons pas leur maison puisque Tony et Femke sont en train de déménager; mais nous partageons volontiers avec vous le plaisir de cette rencontre. Our exchange with Belgium give us the opportunity to meet Femke who is Dutch and Tony who is English! A good example o the cosmopolitanism of Brussels! A beautiful moment of conviviality. We do not recommend their house because Tony and Femke are moving; but we share gladly with you the pleasure of this meeting.”

Where is it?
Abingdon is a lovely old market town in the county of Oxfordshire and our house is in the centre of town, with all shops, pubs, restaurants, a surgery and a vet at walking distance.
There are beautiful walks and parks along the river Thames, which runs through town. You can enjoy a drink at one of the pubs along the river, perhaps after having peddled in a canoe or kayak, which are available for hire. All this at a 10-minutes' walking distance from our house.
Links for Abingdon:
The city of Oxford is only 10 km/6 mi away.
London is less than an hour's drive via the A40, or can be reached by train from the nearby village of Didcot, where there are 4 trains per hour to Paddington station (a 40 minutes' ride).
