AGM - Sunday 3 March
Summer in the Cote
We are former residents of Lovett Bay and have recently rented in
Elvina and done house swaps with a friend in Coasters. We now live half
the year in Nice in the south of France and half the year here in
Sydney. We are here now until late March and will be returning to
Sydney in August.
Our lovely 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the Mediterranean and the
harbour of Nice will be empty from then until February 2014.
Would anyone be interested in doing a house swap for any of that time?
August is the busiest month there, but the height of the tourist
season; from September it quietens down. And the autumn/winter months
are rather like here in climate.
We can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
or 0487 630 711.
