Unavailable for exchange at the moment

The member has not specified any exchange dates

Open to any place in northern Europe (Scandinavia, Island, Scotland ...), very free for the dates . Two to four participants .

.
Our home is not luxurious but confortable and well equiped . (See the listing) We have a small but very private garden with a terrasse wich is our "main room" where we stay and eat nearly all the year round .  We can park the cars inside the yard, which is quite handy . On the ground floor : kitchen, living-room, toilette, bath-room (shower) First floor, two bed rooms one with double bed(160) one with two single (90), office with the computer and free land-line telephon, and toilette . 
 We live in a very nice district, peacefull, not far from the sea and good beaches.The center and all it's activities is easy to reach with  good public transport . Easy shopping too, with small shops round the corner and supermarket 3 minutes away by car  .

I do not think it's usefull to tell how Provence is a rich region in many ways : beautifull sceneries, historical towns and sites , music and theaters festivals, without forgeting vine, gastronomy and good weather ....

About Our Family

We are a retired couple, Karsten, ex-ingeneer in the oil industry, Jacqueline ex-teacher in a pre-nursing school (trained as a nurse and a physiotherapeute) . Most of the time Karsten preferes to stay in our second home and I travel with one or two friends . .
We are enthousiast members of Intervac, loving to welcome people in our home and to make them discover the things we love in our country : we prepare the stay of our "swappers" like we do when we expect friends . and of course we are wiling to discover other countries, other cultures (other foods !) with a very open mind . We had marvellous experiences during our numerous exchanges and are willing to enjoy this kind of holidays based on the idea of exchange and sharing as long as possible . We will of course take good care of your belongings and our biger pleasure is to know that our guests enjoyed their stay at us . So maybe the next ones will be you : if you feel to discover our country, welcome to Bd Cauvière !

Lifestyle

We love the spirit of Intervac, without money involved and a will of welcoming people and make them appreciate our town and country ..We are experienced "swappers" and we know how to take care of a home which is kindly lent to us and we are very pleased to welcome people in the same way : the best thing is when we have positive comments and learn that our guests enjoyed their stay . We love also to live the "real life" of a country, not being just toursits . We have children and grandchildren both in Norway and in France and the children are always welcome at us . We share our time between Marseille and our second home in the country , visit and receive friends and of course our children and grandchildren . .
We are very open to all offer as we are very free with our time , ready for new experiences, so do not hesitate to contact us , some of our best exchanges have been done just by chance, sometimes at the last minute .
