House in VAUHALLAN, France

We are a family of 4 and are looking for exchanging our home in Europe. Patrick (38) is an engineer and Véronique (38) a researcher. We have two children: Chloé (8) and Arthus (4).
We live in a 120 mq house with a large garden, a terrace where you can take your lunch outdoor. You can taste the vegetables and fruits from our vegetable garden. The house is divided into two floors: the main floor with the living room, the kitchen, a bedroom with double beds and a shower-room, and the first floor with 3 bedrooms, 1 equipped with king size bed and the two others with a single bed and a bathroom.  The cellar allows to park 2 cars.
We live in a small village (2000 inhabitants) just at the limit of the suburban zone in the south of Paris. Vauhallan is a small village with all basic amenities (bakery, pub, greengrocer, post office, riding school, etc.). A little market takes place every sunday about 1km away from our house. We live 30 min drive to Paris. Public transport are also available to reach Paris by bus + train.
There is a wood just behind the garden which enables to go for a walk or a drive. Numerous tourist attraction in Paris and its surrounding: Eiffel tower, Notre Dame de Paris, Montmartre, Paris famous museums and gardens, Versailles, Disneyland Paris, Parc Asterix, Giverny (garden of Monet), Auvers sur Oise, castel of Fontainebleau, castel of Vaux le Vicomte, zoo of Thoiry. You can reach them by car or by public transportation. During August, the traffic flow is particularly fluid and the parking in Paris free. You can also make day trips to Loire Valley castles or to the Normandy.
