Welcome in Limousin
We are a family of five and enjoy music and sports. Every member of the family plays music.
my name is Olivier and I am the principal of a junior secondary school.
Claire works at the regional service for the Ministry of Sports in Limoges. Her main hobby is playing viola with the local orchestra.
We have 3 sons Marin (14), Simon (12), Martial (6). Marin plays percussion and he is above all passionate about basketball. Simon plays cello and does gymnastics and athletics. Martial plays violin and does judo. They are very well behaved and respectful of other peoples houses.
We treat our homes with great care and we would treat yours just the same.
We did our first homexchange this summer in Dublin. It was a very good experience. Now, we are very excited about doing our second home-exchange.

Open during french school hollidays

We had a great exchange with Claire and Olivier. Their home is spacious, stylish, welcoming and bright with a great garden. The house is ideally located, in a quiet area, 10-15 minutes walk from the center; you don't need to use the car to walk around Limoges. Neighbours and locals are very friendly. Claire and her family provided us with an ideal setting to explore Limoges and villages nearby (I recommend discovering this beautiful area) . Moreover, it was a pleasure to prepare this HomeExchange with Claire: We talked by email before and during exchange. Thanks Claire et Olivier. A extraordinay exchange!!!!
Limoges is a great city with plenty to offer: restaurants; museums; architecture and shopping and within a few minutes drive you are in the heart of the French countryside. We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the city and joining with the locals in the many local village festivals. Our host family were so generous with their home and provided everything we could have possibly needed and went to a great effort to have a really comprehensive guide to the area ready for us. Thank you again!
This was our first home exchange and we had an amazing time. Claire and Oliver were fabulous exchange partners. They were very well organized and had plenty of information about the things to do in their city and surrounding area. Their house was large, gorgeous and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our family of five (with children ages 12-15) found plenty to do in the pretty and historic city. We spent a wonderful three weeks touring the city and country side, enjoying the food, culture and sites. We left with a new found appreciation for the Region of Limousin and the city of Limoges.
