We are a family of five - our twin sons are 11 and our little girl is 5. We are Londoners and this will be our first formal exchange, though we have often done informal ones with Italian family friends - good experience as Italians are very precise about their housekeeping!
We are looking for a Devon exchange this summer because I'm a television director and will be spending the summer season on a project in Torquay. My husband Massimo is a deputy head at a primary. My daughter will be with us but our sons may well prefer to spend the summer in Italy with their grandparents, so we could just be a party of three. We have a lovely four-bedroomed home in leafy west London, close to an overground that affords fast and easy access to central London (11 minutes to Paddington), or the tube (central/district) is also nearby.
Locally we are in a great area for shopping and leisure - a lovely gastro pub down the road, extremely good butcher, baker and deli just across the park, and Waitrose five minutes away (though all the supermarkets deliver too).
