Exchange dates Duration
July 25, 2022 - August 12, 2022 2 weeks

We are looking for an exchange of 2 weeks between july 25th and august 14th 2022 Nous recherchons activement un échange de 2 semaines entre le 25 juillet 2022 et le 14 aout 2022

Next to Paris, a lovely house - OPEN TO EXCHANGE SUMMER 2022

 
We are a family of 4 members: Stéphane (52) and Charlotte (48) are papa et Maman, and 2 children: Noé is a 13 years old boy and Lucie is a little 11 years old girl. We also have a cat and 2 hens (for eggs)
We live in a very nice and quiet suburb, south of Paris. We have a garden and nice neighbors.

We live very close to all the shops, parks with playgrounds, a public swimming pool and nice restaurants. We love to pick up very fresh and good bread and croissants at the boulangerie on the weekends (3 minute walk).
The metro station is 5 minutes walking from our house. It takes 15 minutes to go to Paris, 20 minutes to Notre Dame de Paris, and all the famous monuments. We are 20 minutes far from Versailles by car. And 10 minutes from Orly Airport.
We have many bicycles with baby seats. We can also exchange our cars: a big family van (if we don’t use it to go to your country of course…)  and a small citadine. They are both equipped with baby car seats.
It is the ideal place to visit Paris with a family. You can visit the city in the daytime and enjoy resting in a comfortable house at night.

The house was built in the 1930s. It's a typical Parisian house. We made a lot of buildings (wooden extension) in 2014. we have 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen open to the living room.

We've experimented home exchange 9 times with families from Sweden, Netherland, Ireland, Austria, Spain, Norway and Finland. we loved it!!

We are looking forward to exchanging with you!
