  • Description


    Hi there! About us : we are a couple, Olivier and Pauline, and a 15 years old adolescent, Alexandre. Olivier is an actor and Pauline is a seasonal worker, usually working into mountain huts. Alex is a student. We are all french but we speak english, spanish and a little bit Italian. We love playing music (guitar, violin, piano, drums) so...musicians very welcomed! We are always very happy to meet new persons and to exchange with people of different cultures.
    We live in a house in Pamiers (south of france, not very far from Toulouse), with a big garden (3000m2). We have a very kind dog, two cats (not that kinds ;)) two chickens..and a goldfish..:) We live in a quiet neighbourhood so that you are in town while feeling in the countryside..!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a place surrounded by historical and natural points of great interest! Pamiers itself is a small/middle town (15000 inhabitants) and there are several nice historical buildings to visit. And it's also the birth town of Faure, the french classical composer and pianist. Around Pamiers, you've got lots of very lovely towns with historical centers (Mirepoix, Camon, Carcassonne) and cathar castles (Montsegur, Roquefixade, Foix? etc.).
    If you love mountain, you've got nice walks at less that an hour ride and Pauline would be happy to give you some advices about the trails.
    Mediterranean sea is a 1 hour and an half ride.
