  • Description


    We are a four members family living in Laval (close to the train station), a small town close to the sea (one hour from the closest sea) and Paris (one hour and a half by train).
    We travelled in Australia and leaved in London few months. We are convinced that english langage is important to be known and practiced from the youngest age. Our little girl Zoé is two years old and we would like open her mind by letting foreign people enter in our daily life. Our son Alexandre is 8 months.
    Laval is known by its quality of life. It is bordered by a river called "La Mayenne" and offers a large choice of activities. the English community is well represented.
    Ezéchiel is a pianist and work home. I (Maud) work in a Local government. We eat organic food, make growing vegetables in our garden, sports (yoga, footing, tennis...) and we give a hand for an association organizing live music concert.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have not a lot to offer in exchange except giving to someone the possibility to live what we lived in Australia : discover our country (France) by the inside, by the heart, in living with a typical family in a typical town. Not the big ones which are rarely the most representatives of a country, but a modest one which could hide a dip friendship.
