Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Spacious 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2-stories house in a quiet area of Villefrance Sur Saône, in the heart of the beautiful Beaujolais region in France. The top floor is dedicated to our 3 sons (who are 15, 13 and 10), and has 2 bedrooms with single beds, and 1 bedroom with a double bed and an ensuite bathroom, a separate toilet, and lots of books and toys that you are welcome to use. We have completely renovated the ground floor with a timber extension; a new kitchen, lounge and master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and a separate toilet. We love spending time in our kitchen, which is very luminous, and has a full view of our garden. We have 1 covered car port in the garden, and ample space in the quiet street in front of our house. During the summer, we install an above ground pool (Diameter 5m / depth 1.20m) and a big trampoline in our garden.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live a brisk 10-min walk away from the town center, with a lovely main street with lots of shops and restaurants, and a market place open every day except Tuesdays and Thursdays, where you will find only local produce (fruits and veggies, meat, cheese, fish, etc). There are bigger shops and larger supermarkets, etc within a short drive.
Our neighborhood is very quiet, we will leave our neighbour's details in case you need any help with the house (that is where our cat hangs out too).My brother lives a 15-min drive away so can also be contacted if needed.
