Pam and I are retired Australians currently on a house exchange between our home in Melbourne and a home in Mazamet. Now we are looking to stay on beyond the end of our exchange in March, but we are having trouble finding someone to exchange with. Interestingly, we have found a couple who are moving to Australia in July, and they are happy to exchange then, so we have only April, May and June to find accommodation for.
Does anyone know about furnished rentals in this area? Do they exist Can they be had for just three months? Are there any traps? Is there a commitment required beforehand, so that, if we found one and then subsequently found a home exchange we liked?
We haven't yet approached any estate agents, as we aren't quite sure how to approach the issue, but we will be doing that soon.
