View of the house from the street. Almost nobody passes by, so we have enough privacy to sit out front for drinks/barbecue.

Four-bedroom house in Strasbourg, France

We have a house with four bedrooms: three double beds and one single. One of the double bedrooms is on the ground floor, with a bathroom (shower and WC); the others are upstairs, where there is a bathroom (shower and bath) and a separate WC. We have a fully-equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, coffee machine (Tassimo), etc. We are in a very quiet neighbourhood that feels like being in the countryside, although you are only 10 minutes walk from the air-conditioned tramway system. You can explore the area around our house on Street View here: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@48.562579,7.7842171,3a,75y,41.81h,71.67t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sopuJzVMlxtZQ41_X0Heyng!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Families with children from about age 8 onwards are welcome, but our own children have grown up and moved away, so we don't have things like toys or children's DVDs, which were a big part of the experience when we went on exchanges with our children 15-20 years ago.

Our listing says we don't have any pets, which is not quite true: we have a small fish tank, but if you like, we can drop in a slow-release food tablet so you don't have to feed them.

We have indicated that our house is "not" suitable for disabled people. While it wouldn't be suitable for someone who cannot get out of a wheelchair (there are six steps from the front door to the living area), it ought to be OK for someone of reduced mobility (we have successfully exchanged with someone in this situation). On the ground floor, we have a bedroom, and a bathroom with shower and toilet. We have exchanged with couples who told us that they never went upstairs!

Strasbourg is at the heart of the beautiful Alsace region, with the Vosges mountains, wine road, castles, and lots of other things to see. There are also some beaches at the edge of lakes (often converted from gravel pits), which can be quite a nice way to spend a day. Germany is a tram ride away; if you take the car, you can tour the Black Forest and maybe buy a cuckoo clock (or at least eat Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, mit Schlagsahne bitte!). Switzerland is 90 minutes drive away. Within two hours drive there are three theme parks: Europa Park (less than one hour's drive!), Walygator, and Fraispertuis City (which apparently has the world's second-steepest rollercoaster drop).
