Dear friends, I am now retired, that means available and very flexible for simultaneous exchanges or non-simultaneous exchanges! Just let me know what you would like. Preferably not too far (Europe), a few days or 2 weeeks, and NOT necessarily July-August !
Near Switzerland and Germany, a comfortable family house in the East of France
Here are some photos of my house and various videos of Belfort city for you.
I can propose a simultaneous or non-simultaneous exchange : I am quite flexible regarding my vacation dates and I have alternative places to spend some days if the exchange is not simultaneous. I can also offer hospitality for short or long term stays for visitors looking for sharing my French way of life. I have already some experience and I really like it.
I have previously exchanged in Canada once and hope to renew this successful experience. I am willing to consider any offer, anywhere, for a 2 or 3 weeks stay, whenever in the year….there are many nice places to explore!
My house has been freshly refurbished. There are 4 large beds and 2 shower-rooms. In the playroom you will find books, games and toys suitable for every age while in the 2 computer rooms you can prepare your tourist trips. The garden (900 m2) and the terrace are very relaxing, you will certainly enjoy the electrical plancha for outdoor dining.
My neighbourhood is very quiet even if the village is adjacent to Belfort. Within 5 minutes by foot, you will find shops, a typical restaurant, a supermarket, and the Belfort city tennis courts, swimming pool and ice skating rink. You also have easy access from the house to lovely walking or biking flat trails along the canal.
I live in a wonderful green country famous for its wine and cheese, mountains, rivers and lakes dominated by castles. Besançon (1 hour), Strasbourg (1,5 hour) and Belfort-Montbeliard are all served by the TGV train. The nearest airport is the Euroairport (Basel), 45 minutes from Belfort.
Belfort is a historical city made of traditional and beautiful pink sandstone. The Eurockeennes summer festival is fun to attend in July and the free FIMU event happens in May, both music festivals last 3 days.
Lastly there are 2 cats, leaving mainly outdoor and in the garage, but you may meet them in the house thus it is better if you like cats and are kind to them.

My village is near Belfort, historical city famous thanks to Bartholdi (Lion of Belfort), near Alsace region, having ski resorts at 30 mn (Les Vosges) in winter and medium mountains, green landscapes in summer for very nice walks, fishing, flying ...etc. Very quiet for holidays and very pleasant to work in.
If you like room escape games, I recommend this one : http://www.lacledubastion.com/en/ (In this year 1700, you have to retrieve Belfort’s fortification drawings. You are commanded to break into Vauban’s office to find a copy of the lost documents. But be carefull, the architect left them well hidden to avoid them falling in enemies hands!)
