Our family is Lindsay and Olivier, we travel with our younger children Estelle and Oscar. Sometimes my mother comes along. Olivier is half-French, half-Swedish, Lindsay is all English. Lindsay works for BBC television and Olivier is a writer and academic. Our house is stuffed with toys, books, games and DVDs in English and French. We like our holidays to be a combination of beach, lakes, countryside and plenty of activities. We have exchanged many times and have always enjoyed it immensely. We cannot exchange with cats who live inside the house. As we offer our family home, we do not exchange with second homes.
