Grande Maison Piscine, Près Bordeaux
Large house with swimming pool.
Four bedrooms with double beds, two bathrooms, two toilets.
Peaceful garden, adjoining a pine forest.
Fifteen kilometres from Bordeaux, and forty kilometres from the Atlantic.
Situated amongst vineyards and lakes, with bike paths nearby.
We have a friendly fourteen-year-old dog which might stay at home or travel with us ( - it is quite used to home exchanging, having already taken part in nine such ventures throughout Europe with great success!).
There is a little cottage at the bottom end of the garden which we sometimes lend to a friend for sleeping in, but he is working and does not use the swimming pool.
Take care to watch any young children who cannot swim: the swimming pool can be dangerous, and there is a new law in France which bans it from being used by young children.
There is a barbecue and a grill.
The sea (40 km away), with the Great Dune of Pilat (the largest sand dune in Europe!).
Arcachon, the famous seaside resort, is 35 km away, and there are large lakes with recreational facilities 30 km away.
Spain is 2Â½ hours away by motorway, and the Périgord is also 2Â½ hours away.
We have bikes, roller skates, beach equipment etc which you are welcome to use.
We are a family used to moving about, and we have done home exchanges for eight years throughout Europe.
We have two grown-up children: a twenty-year-old son, who would no longer be coming with us, and an eighteen-year-old daughter, who would be travelling with us for another year or two.
We are not looking for a swimming pool or any luxury at all, but would rather like to be close to large cities, for the ambience and culture that they offer.
We would not be able to offer any car exchange, since we need ours for getting about. it moves with ours.
Our holiday dates are generally quite flexible, though they are usually between July 15th and August 15th.
