Our neighborhood:

We live in Herne Hill, in between bourgois Dulwich and eclectic Brixton. We love it! It is a very 'cool' area with lots going on locally and excellent local shopping-small local shops in the French tradition, really. A great choice of ethnic eateries in the neighbourhood.


The best things are the green space and the excellent transport links, and the sense of community.


We have an 0207 phone code but you can be in Brighton in an hour.

About us:

I am a single parent with four children aged 20, 19, 17 and 15. The older children will be 'doing their own thing' this summer but Sally (15) wants a trip to France with me, possibly accompanied by a few friends. I did this last summer with her on a trip to Turkey with two friends and it was a great success.

She has suggested France this year as she is taking French GCSE. She knows that I have just been on a course in Montpellier and know the area so has helpfully suggested there as a destination. I think that is a great idea!

Equally we know the Nice/Menton area and are open to offers there, or perhaps around Biarritz?
