Our home

We live in a comfortable, semi-detached spacious Victorian house in North London. The fully-fitted modern kitchen/diner looks on to a small garden. There is a large double sitting room with fireplaces and a working wood/coal (smokeless) stove. There is one full bathroom and a shower room. Four of the bedrooms are large, one being a recent loft conversion with a kitchen area. The other is used as a study. We have hi-speed broadband, wi fi and two large flat screen TVs.

Who we are

  1. I am a single parent in my mid fifties with a fifteen year old daughter. We sometimes travel with another small family. I teach and write. I speak Spanish, though not as well as I used to, and my daughter is learning Spanish. I also speak some French and a little Italian. We spend a lot of our holidays in Italy and Spain which we love. We are looking for an exchange in Europe during the period of the London Olympics (27 July - 12 August), preferably the whole period for about three weeks. We would like somewhere in Southern Europe preferably warm and close to a beach or swimming. I don't drive, so anywhere inland could be difficult for us. We love the Italian coasta (Liguria, Sardinia, Sicily, Puglia) and Catalonia, especially the Begur area, and the Lisbon area of Portugal.
    Please note we can't do an exchange outside Europe, or these dates, at the moment.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

It's a leafy north London suburb of mainly Victorian homes with a village feel. Many young families live in the area and there are several parks and woods nearby. There is also a local swimming pool and skating rink. We're not far from Highgate and Hampstead. Our area is known for its trendy restaurants and bars. There is a direct overground connection to the city, a bus into the West End and a short bus ride to the nearest tube. From there it's easy to reach all parts of London, including the Olympic sites.
