Our Location

We live in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, on the outskirts of Melbourne, Victoria. It is a popular tourist destination due to the natural beauty of the area - perfect for hiking amongst the temperate old-growth rainforests (think giant gums and spectacular tree-ferns). The Yarra-Valley nearby is amazing for wine-tasting day trips and panoramic views. All this just a 45 minute drive from the city of Melbourne - the cultural capital of Australia. There is a train to the city with a stop just 5 minute's walk away. The local town, Belgrave, is funky indeed with happening cafes, restaurants, trendy retail stores, cinemas and bars a mere 15 minute stroll away along walking paths lined with gum trees. And there are lots more great places to eat or visit just a few minutes drive away in the hills. OK, it's not tropical, but it is paradise and there are many stunning Australian beaches and the usual bonanza of National Parks that Australia is famous all within an hour's drive.

Other Comments

We are visiting France in May-June (2018) and are keen for a swap with a French family during that time although our house may be available in July also. Laetitia speaks fluent French. There are some French kid's books in the house and local French people we can put you in contact with if that is helpful. P.S. We will upload proper photos of the house soon - need to find them in the mass of digital photos we all take these days!
