House built in 1905; Looking for an exchange in France or Germany: 12-14 days in period 18 April-8 May 2019: House with garden

Hello,
We are Wilma and Peter (born in 1952) We are Platinum members so you'll understand that we have had many exchanges! We really love this way of holidays. To us it is the very best way to visit a country.

We live in a house that is built in 1905. In1999 we totaly renovated it with keeping the original details. Our house is rather big and comfortable, It is situated in a quiet neighbourhood of our town GOES but still it is only a few steps away from the city centre. That is mainly because Goes is just a little town of about 24.000 inhabitants. Goes is a popular city because it is situated in the centre of the region.

Our house has all convenience eg. two micro waves, a dish washer, two bath rooms, a washing machine, a wash dryer, television and hard disk video ( Netflix!) , a hifi-set. We have five bed rooms, two living rooms, a kitchen and a conservatory.
We have 3 beds: 160x210; 160x200, 140x200.
The house is situated along side a canal. In earlier days this canal was part of the cities defence system.

We live quite close from the 17th century harbor and from that harbor a canal flows towards the Oosterschelde which is one of Europe's cleanest and best preserved Delta rivers. It is here that we like best to swim, because of the superior water quality. To the Oosterschelde it takes a 5 minutes car drive or a nice 15 minutes bike ride.
About 10 minutes walking from our house you’ll find a tropical swimming pool, various tennis courts and a golf course.

We have 2 bikes that can be used. We hope you have bikes we can use.

Behind the house we have a small city garden. If you really want to go to the country side it takes you only 10 minutes by bike.

Wilma is a retired lawyer and Peter is a retired music procucer. We have three adult daughters and we are grandparents of five lovely grandchildren. But our children never join us on our holidays, except in winter during our skiing tours.

About Our Family

Since 2018 we are both retired and that gives us the opportunity to do exchanges whenever we like. e.g. We are not tied to school holidays.
