Property features

Who we are

  1. We are both health care professionals and we have 4 children all very well behaved and polite. Tess (16), Stephanie (14), Harrison (12) and Isabella(9). We chose to live in the hills for our love of a peaceful lifestyle and our horses (3) but still have the advantage of sending the children to excellent city schools and we can easily go to the city for shopping/theatre or to the beach. We love the adventure of travel and we really would like to experience a white christmas in the French Alps. We are keen skiers and have not skiied outside of Australia. Tess is studying French and art in her final year of school (2007) and we see this trip as a culteral experience. We plan to go to Paris for the first 2 weeks of our holiday.
