House by the sea on the Isle of Wight, South Coast Great Britain

We live in a modern 3 storey house overlooking the quiet Bembridge Harbour, St Helens on the Isle of Wight, 15 km off the south coast of England. There are good transport links between the mainland and the island. London is 90 minutes from our nearest mainland port of Portsmouth.
We are well situated for the beach and the sea and all other tourist attractions on this holiday island. The Isle of Wight is designated as an area of outstanding beauty and has much to offer visitors. We came here in 1984 supposedly for a couple of years. We are still here - testimony to the quality and pace of life on the island.
Our house is perfect for a long week-end and/or a longer break and has all modern conveniences.  It is easy to manage and conveniently placed.
I retired from my post as education officer and school headteacher and Jane from her schoolteacher position in August 2014. We are looking forward to using our retirement to see more of the UK and overseas. We have been members of Interval for 20 years and, having had great memories of exchanging homes accompanied by our children, we now look forward to embarking on exchanges as a couple!

Vorstellungstext über sich bzw. Ihre Familie

Both Jane and I have been in education for over 30 years. Having been a headteacher/principal for 15 years, I retired from my role as education officer in August 2014. Jane retired in April 2013 from her job as a primary school teacher.
We have 2 grown up children. Both live and work on the Isle of Wight.
We have lived on the Isle of Wight for 30 years and enjoy its peaceful beauty and the surrounding sea. Island life is quiet and away from the bustle of mainland England but we are only 20 minutes from the southern coast and 90 minutes by train or road from London.
We have been Intervac members for 20 years and we are just returning after a short break.

Lebensstil

We love the outdoors and living on the Isle of Wight gives us access to coastline, hills and woods. The island has the best of all landscapes and environments. We enjoy sports but also cultural activities - reading, theatre and music. The Isle of Wight boasts a world famous music festival and of course, is famous for its Cowes Week sailing regatta.
We have been longstanding members of Intervac but, the children having reached their late teenage years, we have had a break and we are now looking forward to the rewards and excitement of intervac travel.
