Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We are not available anymore for the summer 2020.
We would be looking for an exchange for the last week of October 2020 or between Christmas and the first week of January 2021.

The house is new, built in timber on 2 levels, very well insulated against cold or heat, very agreable with high ceiling, large windows and open space. Upstairs there is the bathroom and the main bedroom, plus two sofa beds in a large open space, one is facing the landscape. Downstairs, the kitchen is open on the living room. A large wooden terrace runs on 2 sides of the house (S & W) and a garden surrounds the house (~1000 m2). In front of us (below the terrace), is only fields and woodland, and the mountain in the background.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

From our house, it's 2 km to the nearest lake, ideal for a swim during the hot summer days. But the region has two other beautiful larger lakes, with clear water and stunning surrounding landcsapes : le Bourget (12 min away) and Aiguebelette (20 min away). A branch of the Rhone river is just 3 km away, it is possible to canoe there or follow the bike path along the river for 60 km. Many hikes and wanders are possible nearby or a bit further in the higher alpine massifs. It's an ideal region for outdorr activities. for cultural events, concerts, shopping, etc, the nearest towns are Aix les Bains (thermal city, where you can get to spa, massage, thermal treatments...) and Chambéry (main town).

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

It is important for us to respect a few rules about our house, that we mostly built ourselves! :-)
For example no shoes upstairs or in the staircase, that are made of natural wood, unvarnished.
The sewage waters are going into a planted filter (phyoepuration) and it is necessary to avoid the use of chemical products.
Of course we would expect, when we come back, to find the house as clean as we left it and without damages.
We would prefer some cat lovers to take care of our cat, who is free to go where she wants around the house and outside but needs just to be fed and cuddled.
