Area: BretagneWe are a Franco-Canadian family of 4 living in the city of Brest, in Brittany, a 4 1/2 hour train ride from Paris, 2 hours from Rennes. We speak fluent English French, Italian, and some German. Our apartment is located right downtown, a 15-minute bus ride away from the beach, one block from the main square and main bus / tramway lines. The train / coach station (destinations including Quimper, le Conquet, Rennes) is a block away. The beach is 15 minutes away. We live close to the pubs and restaurants, and the lively Brest ports ( with boat rides to the Islands of Ouessant, Sein, Molene) are a 15-minute walk away too. If you wish to meet fellow travellers, local and foreign students, there is an international group in Brest bringing together expatriates and internationally-oriented people with mutual language and cultural interests in a spirit of shared generosity. It organises a vast choice of events including casual bar nights, language-exchange evenings, special events (BBQ, picnic) and parties.
Area: Southern FranceWe are a couple who have swapped the office for the outdoors and are renovating an old stone farmhouse in the beautiful and spectacular mountains of the Cevennes region in the south of France. Our land is in a secluded valley just 5 minutes walk from a small village and 5 minutes drive from a medium sized town which has all the typical Southern French characteristics as well as lots of local idiosyncrasies. So far we live in a caravan in a barn while we work on the farmhouse and cultivate the garden.
Area: Downtown BudapestWe have a small unique homey place in downtown Budapest. We are located close to the main downtown tracks and sights (Danube-bank, Market Hall, Gellert-hill, curative thermal baths, museums). Other advantages of the neighborhood are: supermarket, grocery, pharmacy, post office, vegetarian restaurant, spiritual center, cafes, bars and clubs. The perfect hostel for those who are traveling alone and like to meet others... Easy to socialize and hang together with an interesting mix of people. It´s very laid back and easy going hostel. It feels if you are home away from home!

Area: UmbriaFollowing a long professional career in 2010 I changed my life style and opened a small country inn right on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. I enjoy country life and meeting people from allover the world. The atmosphere is very relaxed and often we seat by the pool with our guests drinking a prosecco, suggesting places and events or organizing bbq parties. In only 2 years we had very good write ups . Cortona, Perugia, Siena, Assisi, Gubbio, Montepulciano are only a few km away. Florence and Rome can be reached in 1 and 2 hours respectively, by car or direct trains. I run the place by myself with the occasional aid of a gardener. Need an English speaking person to help me run the place.
