Our home

In the main family house, we restored this little three stores house. It was planned just for two people, as our children have theirs on the side of the main house. It has three rooms one on top of the other, end even if it is quite small, it has 13 window, so you never miss the wonderful sight of the mountains even if you are lying in bed, in the bathtube, on the sofa or you are eating in the kitchen. My husband is an architect and he conceived the house to be open to all the views. We tested the house also with three grandchildren sleeping in the living room and it is just bearable. The bathroom is on the second floor, just besides the bedroom. I recommend you take care of your steps, as the stairs have no protections at all, watch your children and yourself!

Who we are

  1. We are a couple in our sixties, my husband used to teach at the University and just now retired, I am a psychoanalyst slowing down work and considering travelling more. We did many house exchanges, when we were much younger as well as in the last year, and we find it a very interesting way of being in contact with people and places. We love seeing art, architectures, museums, and different places in the world. We can sometimes be travelling with some friends. Please note: we have already arranged all the swaps for this year 2010. We can now plan for 2011. I try to answer to every message I receive, but I am slow, as I have time only at weekends.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is on top of the little village of Villair, in the middle of the fields, on a south slope. Courmayeur, the main place, is a nice mountain town, not spoiled by too big constructions: it is at 20 minutes walking distance, and few minutes driving. Winter skiing is good, and in summer you can go hiking and mountaneering. Even from the house, without using any car, you have many wonderful places to walk to, for every kind of walker or hiker. Courmayeur is well connected with Aosta, Torino and Milano by a good motorway, and through the Mont Blanc tunnel with Chamonix and Genève as well. We use this house always and only at Christmas and in July, when all the family is meeting there.
