Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home is in a rural area and yet only 3 kms away from the town of Pontchateau (10.000). Our house is an old construction, built in traditional style and is set back in a woodland garden. The front of the house (north side) faces a very little village and the back side (south and sunny side) looks onto our garden 4000 sqm with a 120sqm wood deck and the heated swimming pool backed by green country.(Secured Pool for kids by electric curtain) Downstairs we have a big kitchen well equipped and a large living room with tv video music center and a piano. It has central heating and a wood burning stove in the living room which makes it very cozy in winter. The garden is full of mature oaks and other trees. Upstairs, the four bedrooms have double size beds. The main bedroom has its own bathroom and separated wc. For the others there is a large bathroom with wc. This is our home and we love living here and welcoming family and friends to share it with us.

Something about ourselves
My wife Babeth (48) and me Gilles (51) have 1 daughter Fantine (13); we have four others children but not for the exchange. Babeth works in a shipping agency in Nantes-Saint Nazaire harbour and I am teacher. We travel all together every summer abroad or in France. We exanged third since 2010 (amsterdam, france and bresil) and it was always real success. we are sure now that it's a excellent way to discover new country and new cultur.
