Profile: Family-of-4 - Completed House Swaps: 2
We are a family of 4, I teach at the local high school and I have 3 children aged 9,13 and 15. I am taking sabbatical in 2014 and wish to travel in Europe and the UK from April to July. I am open to any offers/suggestions for this time period. In particular we wish to stay a month in both London and Paris.
We live in a quiet street walking distance to shops, cafes,resturant, take out food, park, pool,skate park, recreation centre, pub, river, walking and cycling trails. We are situated in the beautiful Yarra Valley (gourmet food, wine, art, music, markets, festivals and every outdoor activity you could want).
We love where we live, great town, welcoming community. The boys and I are into sport and adventure activites, whilst my daughter is both an artist and a musician. We love books, museums and natural history. We are a very close knit family and highly value our time away together exploring new places. The children are very well behaved, respectful and disciplined and we would treat your home with the utmost care.
