We live in BESANCON, a touristic old town, located near LYON ( two hours by car), near GENEVA (Switzerland- on hour and half by driving), and near a typical area the ALSACE, and near the " BOURGOGNE" vineyards,one of the most famous of the world.

Our house is located in a nice hill of Besançon, surrounding with a great terrace, a  garden, trees, wood. Ten minutes walking, we are in the old center town of Besançon, and   so we live in the countryside and in a town.
We enjoy exchanging home, and all our trips were interesting and différent.
We like nature, hikking, cycling, classic music, and visit culturel city.
We have got a dog, that doesn't stay at home in holidays ; he goes in a dog pension.
We raise bees in the garden that stay quiet.
