Long term Home exchange offer in Haute Savoie France, bordering Switzerland

We are a family of 4 (Mom, Dad, 9 yr old boy, 7 yr old girl) who loves to spend time together especially in nature, discover and explore new areas. We are very respectful and like to think we are pleasant people. Ben is a researcher in neuroscience at the University of Geneva, and Sou works at the Swiss TV.

We, as the family are going to spend a year in Boston because Ben wil be working at the Center on Media and Child Health in Boston (Harvard Medical School teaching Hospital) from August 2020 to June 2021.

We would like to take this opportunity to offer a unique chance to our children to live an exciting new family experience. We are looking for a house exchange in Boston, ideally around Brooklyne area (our children will go to public school). The ideal family would like to live an enriching experience, in the heart of Haute Savoie, an area populated with mountains (Alpes) and lakes (e.g., Geneva, Annecy, to cite only a few). The ideal family is respectful and likes to spend time in nature.

Comfortable stand-alone home located in the village of Nangy, in Haute Savoie in France (bordering both Switzerland and Italy).

Nangy enjoys a micro-climate with sunny and bright exposure, and a fantastic view over the French Alps and benefits from quiet and safe neighbourhood. Our house is situated less than 10 Km from Geneva and it’s beautiful lake, and surrounded by Mountains, providing us with plenty of great spots for hiking and skiing. Geneva airport and train station offer a great deal of destinations to visit Europe.

Our house is the oldest farm of the village from 1870’s which was nicely renovated and fully equipped with a mixture of high-end and vintage branded furniture. The house is clean, spacious and comfortable, and features nice volumes - the interior is about 140 square meters with 5 meters high ceiling in the half of the living room (the other being open on a play area with TV, couch and NVidia Shield android box to connect applications and games). There are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living room and dining room, a fully equipped kitchen (Jura professional coffee maker, Kitchenaid Juice maker, Electrolux, etc). In general, the house is fully equipped with almost all of the luxury accommodations one can think of such as 4K 55’’ flatscreen (with Netflix connected), DVD player.
There are three floors. The ground floor includes a large garage and a large underground/cave of about 40 square meters each. On the first floor, a large entrance gives on a large open kitchen, as well as a sleeping area with toilets, a master bathroom with spacious Italian shower, next to the parent’s bedroom. The second floor (only 6 stairs) is made of a large living and dining room with a fireplace, and an open playroom upstairs (open on the dining room) with a second flat TV connected to an NVidia Shield android box with Apps and games. The third and last floor contains 3 bedrooms, a bathroom with bath and toilets.
