We are a married couple and live in Six Fours les plages with our two children of 12 and 14 years old.
We have already done 7 swaps in Europe and Quebec. We loved these trips so much !! Our children are very well behaved and have the chance to travel with us. We want to continue this way because we always have excellent experiences.

We spend 14 days in Eve and Cedric big, cosy and very functional home with grapes, lemon and figentrees in the garden and a sunny huge terrasse. Eve and Cedric were both very helpful before the exchange and also during our stay. They send us a lot of informations and maps. Wauu. We felt at home right away in their home, all the four of us. Six Fours les Plages is a perfect french spot. Its sunny with a wonderful ocean, mountains, beautiful small towna and lot of things to do. The house was close to the supermarked, the baker, the beach, the fruitstore etc. We biked to almost everything in the local area, going for croissants and pain au chocolat every morning. We were biking on their good bikes every day during the stay - so great. We went swimming morning and evening, sometimes in huges waves, the water is clear and warm. We played tennis, went to aqualand, Aix en Provence, Marseille, le Castellet, the local beaches and the beaches in Bandol. So wonderful. We had lunch and dinner at nice, good restaurants and visited the nearby town Sanary several time. It was a very charming little town with a little harbour, lots of nice cafes, shop, marked every night and morningmarked every day. We loved the life in Six-Fours-les-plages very much. There were almost no foreign turists, only us, smile, and french people. This area is very special, so beautiful amazing nature and views. We can warmly recommend a swap with this kind, friendly and with a lot of humour family. It is one of the best swaps we ever had. One more thing, comming back to our house in Denmark, we found it very nice and clean with warm welcome-home-letters. Merci beaucoup!

This was our first exchange, and we couldn't have had a better family to swap with, than the Beneitos! We felt very much at home in their cosy house, with warm, relaxing evenings in the nice, mediterranean garden (with small, cute lizards!). Our children also loved it, and had lots to do in the kids rooms with the toys and french books and magazines! Since we love the beach and the ocean, this was perfect; just a ten minute walk to get there! A couple of days were quite windy, with exciting waves to “surf” on. We also really enjoyed the Cap Nègre, where you get close contact with the wind! The evening market in Sanary was a very nice experience as well, with friendly atmosphere and lots of people. The close neighborhood has everything you want, from the little market shop with fruit and vegetables, to the bakery and the Supermarket, and finally the big Auchan only a short drive from home. Eve and Cedric have been very forthcoming from the start, and always had a nice thing to say in their letters and communications. They were full of suggestions of what to do on our holiday, which were a great help for us. All in all, this was a splendid first swap, and we are very grateful to Eve and Cedric for that!”

“La maison d\'Eve et Cédric est agréable, située dans un quartier calme, proche de la mer, très bien placée pour découvrir la côte varoise, le joli port de Sanary, la rade de Toulon, les chemins côtiers, à pied ou à vélo, mais aussi les calanques de Cassis ou Marseille. les contacts avec nos "échangeurs" ont été faciles et sympathiques. Un échange réussi.”

“We spent 2 relaxing and memorable weeks in Eve and Cedric's comfortable home in Six-Fours-les-Plages. Their stylish home is located a few mins' walk/cycle ride to the beach, and is a great base for exploring that section of the coast. But with a fig tree and a grape vine in the back garden, who needs to leave the house?! We enjoyed daily outings to the beaches nearby for swimming, snorkeling and a drink in beach side cafes, as well as renting a car (just around the corner) for a few days for outings to the calanques and more distant beaches. We also enjoyed many pleasant hours in the garden, not to mention delicious meals that included the luscious figs. We returned home to find that Eve, Cedric and the boys had left our house neat as a pin. And we also have new friends in the south of France.”
