Swap your cottage for Cote d'azur South of France?

Fancy visiting the Cote d'azur this summer. We would love to swap our French cottage for your beachside MV home for the first week in August....


We are a family of four and we’ll be sailing around Cape Cod at the end of July this year. I was wondering if anyone would like to swop their MV seaside cottage for a week in return for a cottage in the South of France? It doesn’t have to be a simultaneous swap. 


We live in a wonderful medieval town on the French Riviera called Vence. The cottage sleeps 4 (2 double bedrooms) and has fabulous views of the Mediterranean. It’s very close to the glorious perched villages of St Paul de Vence and Tourette sur Loup and just 45 minutes to Monaco and Italy. 


I’m looking for a small cottage that’s on the beach which sleeps two adults and two children, from August 3rd to 10th. 


You can see a short film of our cottage on Youtube.com if you type in ‘La petit maison vence’ it's the first one on the list.


Or if you prefer to swop a larger house we also have a villa - www.storyvilla.com which sleep 10 people. However that is rented out in July and August but we could swap any other week during the year.


Hope to hear from you in that’s of interest.

Hi Fiona, sounds wonderful but we are not able to view your YouTube video, instead getting a message that reads "This video contains content from Groupe Archambault, UMPG Publishing and EMI, one or more of whom have blocked it in your country on copyright grounds." Do you have any photos you have taken yourself that you can add to this blog? Thanks for posting.

Hi Louisa, Thank you for letting me know. It's probably because I used an old French song to accompany it and it must have copyright issues in the US. Anyway you can see the cottage and the villa at this website; www.ownersdirect.co.uk In the opening page type Fr18769 in the search box to see the cottage and FR1160 to see the villa. Hope that helps! Fiona

Oh how I wish I had a seaside cottage on MV to swap with you, Fiona. One day I will get to Provence - if only to smell the lavender. :-)
