Our home

Our house is a classic terraced London family townhouse in a quiet street but yet near all amenities and near Portobello.
It has 3 floors and the self contained studio on the top floor is occupied by our researcher friend who is extremely nice and quiet. Our cleaner Magda comes once a week. For exchange, we have 3 bedrooms (1 double extra King size bed, 1 King size bed & 1 single), 1 bathroom with tub & eco-shower (but strong water pressure) and one toilet downstairs. The ground floor has light coloured oak (wide boards) floors & consists of a large living/dining room. The separate kitchen is practical and opens onto our small secluded garden which is our second dining room during the summer months. Weather permitting, we sometimes manage to take our breakfast there! Our large & sturdy garden table will accomodate 8/9 people during your BBQs.
The house has a homey feeling of harmony as well as a jovial and lighthearted atmosphere. In other words, we hope that you will enjoy it and that it will feel like a second home! Wifi throughout the house.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four. Our sons are young adults and often join us skiing and sometimes in summer provided there is a swimming pool. My husband (63) is an independent graduated structural engineer. I am French (60)and HOD Modern Foreign Languages and examiner. We have been here, in this house, since 1989 and we have traveled as much as we have been able to but it is never enough for us (China, Cuba, whole of Europe, Northern Africa, Vietnam, Russia, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa & Mauritius). Next year, we are visiting Japan and the year after, Baikal lake.

    We will look after your property as if our own. Hope to hear from you very soon!
