Family home on waterfront, fab. view, 25 min from Montpellier airport and Eridan bilingual school

Gorgeous WATERFRONT Lake Thau Home - Our home has three bedrooms, two baths. It's right on the waterfront, on Lake Thau. It's a modern house with contemporary design. We do boast breathtaking lake views and sunsets (https://tcrouzet.com/tag/home/). On the ground floor, our open concept living area with expansive windows and doors opens to a large deck. The kitchen has high-end stainless appliances. We have a wood burning fireplace (for the occasional rainy day). A separate room can be used as projection room or family room or office or guest room as the couch unfolds into a bed. On the first floor is our sleeping quarter, with one master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a terrace. Our kids' rooms are separated by a folding wall which we open when they need more play space. A separate office on the second floor also has a sofa bed for 2 additional occasional guests. The exterior features a garden with a creek, a dock with a catamaran, 3 kayaks and a paddle boat, swings, a volley ball field with net and a studio/shed that can be used as office or for guests. We also have a separate garage where kids play table tennis - it can be too windy to play outside.
We're located in Balaruc-les-Bains, France's #1 spa resort, just minutes to Sète and easy access to the A9 highway to Montpellier.
More details:
- large open living room with fireplace, grand piano (1895 Érard), kitchen with access to exterior, dining area sitting 7 inside, separate office/projection/guest room on ground floor, PC with internet corner in entrance hall;
- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (master has ensuite), table football on mezzanine, large library (4000+ books in French and English) on first floor;
- office/occasional guest room on second floor.
We have two cats who need cuddling and feeding on a daily basis.
Perfect for a family of four with up to four occasional guests. We can help find the best school for the kids if, like us, you're swapping your home for the full cultural experience during your sabbatical.
We are not interested with short-term vacation swaps.
If you're interested in a long term home swap, we can also discuss access to our Parisian pied-à-terre located rue Crémieux, near Gare de Lyon (we're a 10 minute drive away from the Sète TGV station).

About Me
Novelist, essay writer, and blogger, I'm fascinated by issues located at the nexus of technology, politics, and literature. My works in French include Le Peuple des connecteurs [The Connected People], a reflection on our networked society; J’ai débranché [How I Unplugged], a tale of digital burnout; and La Quatrième Théorie [The Fourth Theory] a thriller by tweets. My scientific account, Clean Hands Save Lives, has been translated in eighteen languages, winning hundreds of thousands of readers across the world. With my wife Isabelle (translator) and our two boys (10 and 12), I'm looking for a home exchange starting in July 2018 (6 months minimum).
