    I am looking to coming to the south of France From New Zealand in August 2010. I’ll be having my two boys with me (5 and 10 yrs old) who are bilingual French-English. I would love to do a home exchange or find a cheap rental to make this trip happen. Not looking for anything flash.
    We have a home in Auckland Central not far from the beach. However part of the exchange my partner will still be there but is a nice person to share a house with 😉 .
    Any bites?

    If you are looking for something new to do to get the kids out of the house, why not enjoy a Marionettes show every weekend from 3-5pm at the Park St Mitre in Aix en Provence.

    See you there.

    Looking for somethign new to do? Why not try the ‘Velorail’ at St Maximin? I don’t even know what you call one of these in English, but leave it to the French to have a National Velorail Federation. These are ‘rail bikes’ that run on old train lines. The one at St Maximin provides a charming day out, complete with lovely Provencal scenery, old train stations, bridges and even a tunnel to go through. There are spaces for two pedalers and 3 other passengers.

    Make sure to call first – reservations are mandatory.

    If you are new to the Aix or Marseille area, or just want to get back in touch with English speakers, and you have at least one or your family is a native anglophone then come joing the AAGP (Anglo-American Group of Provence). A fantastic organisation, with loads of resources and activities such as children’s activites and parties, playgroups, wine tasting, sports and walks and even an English library.
