OUR SUMMER 2016 EXCHANGE HAS BEEN ARRANGED

Hi Dear Intervac Travelers,
We are a family of 5, but we'll probably be only 4 to travel next summer.
We are looking for an exchange in CORNWALLS or WALES...or in SWITZERLAND.
We wish to exchange with a single family. If you want to invite some of your friends or family for your summer holidays, please do not contact us ;-)).

Our Home is the perfect base to visit Provence.
In the Heart of Provence, just 10 minutes away from Aix-en-Provence city center by bus or by car, our small town is located mid-way between mountain Sainte Victoire and the Luberon. In this part of Provence, we luckily enjoy both countryside and seaside !

OUR HOUSE (120 sqm) : there are 4 bedrooms on the upper floor, the bathroom and the toilets are on the upper floor too. From 3 of our bedrooms, we can see the whole Sainte Victoire mountain (painted by Cézanne) and the pine tree forest which surrounds Aix en Provence. 
OUTSIDE : a garden (with a very nice view of the village, the countryside and the Sainte Victoire mountain), a swimming pool, a terrace with a BBQ.
We live in a quiet cul de sac street. No problem to park the cars in front of the house.

OUR SMALL TOWN, Venelles, is a quiet and lovely place. All food shops are at a walk distance.

MEDITERRANEAN SEA : we luckily have many mediterranean nice beaches not far from home, sandy or rocky.

(We could exchange cars as well. Our car is a "Toyota Avensis Verso" (old but reliable ;-) ).)
