    Hello, we're a friendly couple, with a good sense of humour, in our early 60's, living in the Vendee, western France.We live in a stone farm cottage adjacent to our Gite (Bungalow).We are looking for a couple/two people. You will be staying in the Gite and you will also have the use of our lovely heated swimming pool!! We are surrounded by lovely rolling countryside, with footpaths from the front door. We are 3 km from the nearest village, with all amenities.There is lots to see and do in the area, and you can have the use of bikes.

    We are English speaking, with basic French. Julie was a swimming teacher, and a dance teacher, in the UK. She still teaches 'Tap' here in France. Chris loves music, plays keyboards in a band. We both love the outdoor life; art & swimming, and Skiing in the winter. We have 2 married sons who live nearby who help where they can.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We can help you with French, or English, language, swimming skills. If you're musical, a jamming session in our music room with keyboards and guitars. We live in a small typically French rural hamlet, and love the French way of life. Practically, we have become 'skilled' DIY'ers, having renovated 2 properties over the last few years; picking up Lime rendering skills etc. along the way. We love to cook, and would be happy to share some meals with you.
