    Description

    Hello,
    We are Carine and Fred and are a family of 7 : we have 5 children from 6 to 18.
    We are living in an very beautiful place, in the mountains near Grenoble in the french alps.
    It's a small village, with an amazing view on the summits around, a quiet place of nature where you can pratice many outdoor activities (hiking, skiing, climbing, paragliding, cycling, ...) but not too far from a big town either (40mins from Grenoble with the bus).

    The two oldest boys works in Grenoble everyday.
    Carine will be back to school studies in september.
    Fred mainly works at home and the 3 other children are homeschooled.

    Last years, we traveled around Europe (UK, Spain, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Danemark, ...) and we discovered with a lot of pleasure different cultures, way of lifes, landscapes, cities, ...
    We like to meet people, share with them our experiences and differences.
    We have made several home exchange.

    After having built our home by ourselves, we will be happy to host people.
