Le Mont-Blanc vous souhaite la bienvenue!
We are a family of four but by now our children (22 and 26) do not travel as much as before with us, .We are both teachers by now retired. Patricia used to teach old Greek and latin; Jacques teached French litterature. We love nature, sport, books, cinéma, theater, music and of course travel. We have a cat named Orange who loves caresses and purr and two little asses for the great delight of the children. In summer our donkeys don't stay at home but we take them to the moutain where the grass is better.

Nous avons déjà conclu un échange pour juillet-août 2015

Un peu dans le genre "dévoreurs de bouquins" et "cinéphiles"...
Patricia and Jacques have a truly amazing home, the character of which is hard to capture in a few photos on the website. I would highly encourage anyone to seriously consider this for their exchange. The setting is wonderful. Passy is a small village (5 minute walk from the Chalet to the bakery and town centre) that's a close drive to many quaint towns, including Chamonix and St. Gervais. All services including a Carrefour Supermarket are also convenient in Sallanches. We had a wonderful 2 week exchange. We spent a lot of time visiting family in Chambery and Annecy and found the drive quite easy (although the tolls do add up!). Geneva is also close (less than an hours drive). But we had the most fun exploring right in the immediate area. Gord & Jill Hotchkiss
La maison que Jill et Gord proposent est superbe, vaste, bien exposée et très confortable; si vous désirez vous détendre, la piscine et le jardin vous attendent;le quartier est d'un grand calme et l'environnement très agréable.Il est possible d'aller au golf pied et le lac et ses plaisirs ne sont qu' quelques minutes en voiture. Aucun problème pour les courses, tout est proximité. Si vous aimez les grands espaces, la maison est au point de départ d'extraordinaires balades vers les lacs de montagne tous plus beaux les uns que les autres, vers les vergers de la région et ses wineries, vers les grands espaces des Rocheuses. Bref,une magnifique maison, une magnifique région, un magnifique pays.
One of our favorite exchange destinations. In the heart of the french alps looking directly (from the bedroom or living room windows) to Mont Blanc! The house is a renovated farm house and smaks of history - we loved it. Our exchange partner is a former mountain guide - we were given a plan and maps of potential walks for every day of our 4 weeks stay. There is only 1 walk we missed! - perhaps next time? If you like mountains as we do, the scenery in this region is truly spectacular. We generally carried our own food however lunch at the mountain refuges is also fantastic. Later this year, we are planning to have a 5~7 day walking journey with our exchange partners walking from refuge to refuge somewhere in the french alps - I can't wait!
