Home Exchange, Non-simultaneous Exchange, Mid-term Exchange (2-4 weeks), Open to offers, Short-term Exchange (2-5 days)
Our cottage seems "far from the madding crowd" in a rural French hamlet of about 18 homes, but is actually just 10 mins from J2 of A85 motorway, with easy access to the chateau town of Saumur--25 mins--and all the attractions of the Loire Valley. NB There are steep wooden stairs to the 2 bedrooms, so is not suitable for disabled!
Please note the cottage is not available through the winter months. We open it for spring after Easter.

SaumurNantes or Paris
Saumur is a lovely riverside town on the banks of the Loire. It has a beautiful chateau & is near many others. There are great wine tastings everywhere,plus the area is famous for horses--with the French cavalry --Le Cadre Noir-stationed in the town. Summers are much milder & warmer here than UK--we have geckos in our garden!!
Our area is rural, but near civilisation too! The whole area is great for walking & cycling as forests are on our doorstep. The wine areas of Saumur, Chinon & Bourgueil are 25 to 35 mins away, with lovely fields of sunflowers in summertime.
The map marker is a general indicator of the local area only.

We are 10 miles from a scenic countryside course at Bauge--they welcome guests & our friends who live near the cottage are keen members.

We have enjoyed many great exchanges in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, California & Florida & met some lovely people there. We would love to return to West coast Florida, Sarasota, Bradenton or Naples areas late Nov/Dec 2020 & we would also love to visit the East coast states in 2021 Autumn/Fall.
Our long term plans are to return to the Perth areas in Western Aus late Jan 2021 until end Feb 2021. We love all of WA, especially Perth, the Mandurah area & Fremantle too!
Shorter exchanges in Europe, especially France, or Northern Spain would be good too.
Just ask us please!
We can offer you the opportunity to exchange either our main home( ref 686) here in Weston super Mare, N Somerset, England.....or our holiday cottage (ref 691) in the lovely Loire Valley, France.
Exchanges do not need to be simultaneous. We are very flexible.
We appreciate that most of you lovely folk from WA or Florida will not wish to come to Europe/UK in our dreary winters so we usually make non-simultaneous exchanges so that you can see our homes in our lovely Spring summer or even Autumn months! Most of our 30+ home exchanges have worked well this way.
