Jean Rivet home swap
our home is a traditional town house. On a Boulevard with shops bars and restaurants.
The house has a small quiet, enclosed) sunny flagstoned garden with a Wisteria for shade.
The entrance is on the ground floor with a corridor leading to the garden. The rest of the house is on the first and second floors. There is a small shop unit within the constructs of the house hence, most of the house being above ground level. We have very little to do with the shop below, and it causes no problems.
There is a large lounge with three large French windows and long balcony. Opposite the lounge is large kitchen diner with pleasant view over trees, an old dovecote, and a couple of gardens. in a small hall area between the kitchena and lounge, there is a loo and hand basin. Upstairs are three bedrooms (two of which are ample doubles and one study room with sofa bed. One bedroom has an ensuite shower room and there is a lovely recently installed family bathroom, with shower and bath and loo.
The bedroom with the shower has a teenager size bed and desk arrangement and an extra single bed for friends.
Most importantly for the summer, the bedrooms have air-conditioning. It's a characterful home and very French; There are two good sized fireplaces in the lounge and kitchen. And there is a spiral staircase leading from the kitchen to the garden.
