We live in a residential area but around there are so many things! the center of Montlhery has kept its medieval character with paved streets, old church, medieval tower, park, only 3 min drive from home. All the shops you need are in town: the typical French "boulangerie" of course with great pastries, cheese shop (great!), butchers, wine shop, books and newspaper, cigarettes, post office, esthetic shops, souvenirs, pharmacy, etc. a swimming pool. The market is in town on Saturday morning and Wednesday morning. We also have malls and supermarkets around (Intermarché, Carrefour), and many restaurants around, all kinds! from gastronomic to French Britany region (crêpes !), pizza, fish, Moroccan, etc. You won't have time to try them all!
Notre quartier est résidentiel mais à proximité nous avons beaucoup de choses : le centre ville de Montlhéry à 3 min en voiture, qui est resté typique avec ses rues pavées, ses anciennes portes de ville, la Tour, le parc de la Mairie. Beaucoup de commerçants (boulangeries, Poste, bouchers, fromager, caviste, distributeurs, instituts de beauté, presse, pharmacies...), une piscine municipale, une salle des fêtes avec quelques spectacles. Le petit marché est présent le mercredi et le samedi en centre ville. Côté grandes surfaces nous sommes bien servis aussi ! Un intermarché à moins de 5 min en voiture, un Carrefour et petit centre commercial à 10 min, un Picard, des primeurs, etc. Et de nombreux restaurants à 5 min à la ronde : O Bistrot, La Criée, restaurants japonais, chinois, portugais, Pizzeria, Léon de Bruxelles, Mc Do, mais aussi gastronomique, marocain et breton en centre ville. Vous n'aurez pas fait le tour !
bord des étangs.
If you like to walk in a nice environment, or run or take the bicycle, you ought to go the Longpont Basilic where you can park easily. This church was built in the XVth century and has the oldest reliquary in Europe! It is very active and there are concerts, mass on Sundays, etc. and around the environment is great in calm: horses, lakes, 12kms walk path and even 42 kms if you take the bike and go further in the area (most are only pedestrian paths). That is where we run every week... and in the summer time, you can stop to taste a French "crêpes", sit down and look at the fisherman, listen to music or watch people bringing their picnics. Very lively area.
Si vous aimez les promenades, vous aimerez les bords de l'orge à moins de 10 min en voiture. On se gare devant la Basilique de Longpont, du XVe siècle, qui a le plus grand retable d'Europe (et oui !) et qui est active avec des concerts, des messes... et qui donne sur un grand parcours dans la nature, avec de beaux étangs, des chevaux... 12 kms de promenade côté Saint Geneviève, 42 kms si on pousse jusquà St Germain les Arpajons, quasiment en 100% sentiers et chemins. Incroyable si près de Paris. Nous y allons courir toutes les semaines pour notre plus grand bonheur, ou à vélo. Bien entendu, aux beaux jours, il y a le chalet à crêpes pour les enfants ! et des groupes qui viennent pique niquer au

I can be contacted for information or in case of emergency.
My planning is usely very busy but I might be able to meet if you are traveling in my area and why not have a drink or a meal at home :-)
My friend and I had a wonderful 11 day stay at Solange and Emmanuel's beautiful home. This was a globe exchange since they didn't have any current plans of visiting the US at the time.
We were there in August and were able to pick several kinds of tomatoes, peppers, leaf lettuce and even a couple of blackberries for meals.
It was also a pleasure to meet them one afternoon and get some last minute instructions on appliances and how to get around the area.
Watching the squirrels and birds while having coffee or wine on their patio was an extra treat.
They were so generous and we communicated a lot beforehand which even included videos that Solange did to show us how to get in & out of her home, setting the security, and where to turn on the irrigation.
I would highly recommend their home which is about 45 minutes from Paris by Uber.
We just completed a 2-week exchange with Solange and Emmanuel. Their home and garden is spacious and beautiful. The house is large, immaculate and airy. We were so pleased to meet, visit and have a delicious lunch with Solange and Emmanuel prior to their departure for the Netherlands. While enjoying their home, we also made a day trip by train to Paris to tour the Eiffel Tower and drove to Château Chenonceau in the Loire Valley. The River Cher runs directly through the Chateau and many people were enjoying boating on the river. We were so impressed with both places that we decided to return for a 2 night visit to Paris and Blois, France, to visit the Chateau Blois and Chateau Chambord. We were pleasantly surprised with all the thoughtful gifts Solange left for our enjoyment. The home is well equipped with everything imaginable to enjoy your stay. Did I mention they have a home theater room, which, unfortunately, we didn’t have time to enjoy? Many thanks to this lovely couple for allowing us to stay in their home. We hope to host them in our home in Arkansas in the future. If you have an opportunity to exchange with Solange and Emmanuel, you will be delighted!

The house of Solange and Emmanuel is spacious and beautiful. We really felt like in a mansion. We especially loved the huge home cinema room. What a luxury! The best was the enormous garden and the cozy terrace. We really felt like in heaven and enjoyed the evenings outside with a glass of wine. It was especially fun to see the squirrels and the ring-necked parakeets.
Our July 2022 exchange with Solange was a globe exchange.
During our 3.5 weeks holiday in Québec, also PLU exchange, we hosted 3 back-to-back PLU guests, and Solange was the 3rd in line!
To say that I was a apprehensive about this crazy organisation in the beginning is an understatement. I was nervous about not being able to prep our home myself so that each guest would feel properly welcomed. But everything went so well, every guest was very conscientious about the following guests and Solange made our homecoming one of the best ones we've had so far!
Throughout the organisation and during Solange's stay, our communication was very smooth and friendly and cozy. Solange is very thoughful and reassuring, she, her husband Emmanuel and their friend took amazing care of our home and our furry Oreo.
We kept contact regularly during their entire stay which was very fun.
Solange made sure our home was fully ready for our comeback, it was spotless, our garden was well groomed, all laundry was done, they made sure we had food for our arrival, and we showered with gifts, we were very touched!
All in all, we had a lovely experience with Solange and we are very much looking forward to meeting her and Emmanuel in person!
Solange and Emmanuel were the perfect exchange partners - even more than perfect. We had two years contact before we swapped. And it felt as if long-missed friends finally were coming. We had a nice evening together. They are so friendly, generous and kind. I miss them already. We were so spoilt with lovely gifts and a fridge full of French specialities. We visited the region, Monet's garden in Giverny and Paris. It was lovely.
They took fantastic care of our three cats, watered the garden and left our home spotless. This exchange was perfect and heartwarming. We were astonished of their level of energy. They went to Idstein, Limburg, Burg Eltz, Monreal, Marksburg, Holzbachschlucht, Bad Ems … we really hope to meet again. They are not exchange partners, they are friends 💕
Solange and Emmanuel were perfect guests. They really took care of our home and animals. During their stay, we sent each others messages which was very pleasant. We have one regret, we didn't have the chance to meet them for real, but i am sure we'll keep in touch!
A wonderfull hospitality and experience.
Ada and I had a wonderful 3 weeks non reciprocal exchange with Solange and Emmanuel's large and comfortable house with a lovely garden. My daughter, her son and friend joint later and stayed for a couple of days. Upon arrival Solange left us some information what to do and see around the area There were also traintickets for us to travel to Paris. But most of all we appreciate that she left for each of us a personal gift. Every morning we loved to see the squirrels and the birds in the garden. The kitchen, dining and living room had all glas sliding doors so the house is very light and bright. In the basement you will find
A home theater with a big screen and lots of films to chose from.
The house is located a few kms south of Paris and great to visit also Versailles, Chartres and Fontainebleau . Within 10 minutes drive you will find a trainstation with a direct connection to the Notre Dame and the Eifel tower.Supermarkets like the Carrefour and Intermarché are just a few minutes drive.
From the beginning the communication ( email and Whatsapp) before and during our stay was excellent . It felt so familiar and seems if we knew each other for a long time.
Thank you Solange and Emmanuel for your warm welcome, your kindness, trust and hospitality.
I certainly can recommend an exchange with Solange and Emmanuel
We had the pleasure to host Kathy for 11 days (against a globe as we were not sure that we would be able to travel to Texas someday). We had the chance to meet rapidly at home together with her friend Inez and it was a real pleasure. We had been in touch already for a while to share about the trip, the house, sites to visits, etc. and we were happy to see each other.
Kathy is really the perfect host! She very nicely and steadily watered all the plants inside the house and in the garden, and I know that it must have taken her some time... in particular as the summer has been particularly hot this year. I found everything in great shape when we came back and they left the house spic and span. They even whashed the linen, towels, prepared our bed so it was ready for the night, left presents... how wonderful and special to come back home and feel so welcome!
So we warmly recommend you to swap with Kathy.
Thank you Kathy! We are so glad you contacted us. We hope to meet again in the future :-)
Nous avons passé 11 jours formidables chez Catherine et Eric, avec en plus un temps merveilleux. La maison est idéale : spacieuse, bien équipée, avec un agréable jardin aménagé pour manger dehors et profiter de moments de détente en extérieur. Elle est au calme, la route devant n’étant pas très passante et face à un joli canal. Depuis la maison on peut facilement aller n’importe où en ville rapidement. Nous avions apporté nos vélos et avons vraiment profité de la ville mais aussi d’excursions : Kinderwijk avec ses 19 moulins - virée d’une 50e de kms -, Dordrecht, jolie ville portuaire ; nous avions mis les vélos dans le waterbus pour rentrer en vélo en fin de journée. Depuis Rotterdam nous sommes aussi allés à Delft, Gouda, Oudewater, Woerden (où nous avions passé une semaine mais nous aimons beaucoup), Utrecht et les plages (Monster notre préférée avec Hoek van Holland, Katewijk aan zee). Et nous n’avons pas eu le temps de visiter La Haye et d’autres points d’interêt, vous ne risquez pas de vous ennuyer dans le coin !
Nous avons été très régulièrement en contact avec Catherine, qui était toujours très à l’écoute et c’était un plaisir d’échanger de cette façon sympathique. Catherine nous a prêté son vélo pour un ami venu nous rejoindre et à vraiment facilité notre séjour pour tout ! La maison était préparée avec soin (elle avait tout organisé pour que Carmen qui venait avant nous puisse préparer la maison) et nous avons été touché par leurs cadeaux et carte laissée à notre attention. Il y avait de la documentation et tout ce qu’il faut pour un séjour parfait.
Merci encore Catherine et Eric pour votre confiance et accueil chaleureux ! Nous espérons que vous aurez envie de venir chez nous un de ces jours :-)
Chère Solange, nous sommes très touchés par votre message et tout ce que vous avez fait pour nous, nous en sommes très reconnaissants!
Nous sommes aussi très heureux d'apprendre que vous avez passé de très beaux moments chez nous et lors de vos nombreuses excursions!
À très bientôt, nous irons sûrement vous visiter dans un futur prochain! :-)
We had the chance to meet with Elaine and Lowell for a lunch at home just before we left for our vacation. They both are lovely people and it was so pleasant to have this opportunity to discuss and get to know each other.
They took really great care of our house and even agree to prepare it in order to welcome the next swappers, as we could not come in between the two stays. It was really appreciated! But this was not all, they also spent some time every day watering the vegetable garden and all the plants in the garden which was so important for me, especially as the summer has been so hot in France. Thank you Elaine and Lowell!
They left our house spic and span as well as our car.
We hope we will meet again in Arkansas if we finally decide to go to the US.
You should not hesitate one second to swap with those lovely guests!
Swapping with Camilla and Peter was really friendly and pleasant. We had the chance to have met them before they came to our home because they first hosted us for a night before they left. So we could get to know each other in real, even though we had been in touch for 2 years on WhatsApp before the swap. They had prepared a nice dinner and we had a very good time together.
They took great care of our house and they kept us informed on what was going on which was really appreciated as it maintained the link all the time and we felt they were at ease and enjoyed their stay.
We found our home immaculate when we came back. They left a wonderful bouquet of flowers, a very interesting book about Giverny where they had been during their stay, a nice card, lovely napkins... we felt really touched.
They also watered the plants and the tomates in the vegetable garden and it was so confortable for us to know they were doing all this for us... how special!
Camilla and Peter are a very friendly and trustworthy couple and we would for sure like to keep in touch for future swaps or PLU meetings!
The house of Camilla and Peter is really beautiful, new, with nice furniture, confortable beds, nice bathroom, cosy with a nice terrace and wonderful garden. You feel well immediatly. We were lucky because Camilla and Peter invited us for dinner and prepared a nice meal and took us downtown to show us around. It was a great way to start our trip! They are both so lovely. They left us many good things to enjoy and a great bottle of wine... they even gave us one more as we liked it so much! :-D
We liked the residential area where they lived. You can go to the center walking, there are shops for food, clothes, house decoration, wonderful icecream shops and good restaurants. If you take the car you can visit many great places from 10 minutes to an hour. We went to Idstein, Marksburg, Eltz burg, Bad Ems (we recommend to take the opportunity to go the spa and swimming pool center), we had good walk in the forest, loved Limburg. We stayed only 4 days and could have stayed much longer as there were many other nice things to do. The cats did not required too much work, they are beautiful and very shy. Kasimir started to get used to us after 2 days and we could even hug him :-)
Do not hesitate if you have the chance to be hosted by Camilla and Peter. We had a great time and will cherish those great souvenirs!
Nous avons eu beaucoup de chance de voir la sollicitation de Joan et Nicolas qui cherchaient une âme charitable pour garder leur petite chatte et cochon d'Inde : nous avons proposé "nos services" et étions ravis de découvrir Lyon pour 4 jours. Nous avons été accueillis très chaleureusement par nos hôtes qui avaient tout prévu pour un séjour agréable : la maison apprêtée, de quoi dîner (et bien plus !) le soir de notre arrivée et beaucoup de conseils de visite. Nous avons été en lien avec Joan durant tout notre séjour et c'était un vrai plaisir de partager notre programme, d'avoir des suggestions de restaurants en live, ou de visites, que nous avons suivi à la lettre :-D
La maison est charmante, il y règne un silence royal et les nuits sont parfaites (tant au niveau de la literie qu'au niveau du calme!). La cuisine est équipée de tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner. Il y a beaucoup de lumière, un jardin clos isolé des regards. Il y a de quoi faire de belles ballades dans le grand parc de Jonage ; Joan et Nicolas nous avaient prêté leurs vélos gentiment et c'était très agréable car on y a accès en 5 minutes depuis la maison.
Nous avons marché, marché, marché dans Lyon, monté, monté, monté des centaines des marches, admiré le paysage, profité de nos trajets aller-retour pour visiter Bourg-en-Bresse, Cluny. On peut voir beaucoup de choses dans la région, accéder à Lyon par le train, vraiment pas de risque de s'ennuyer ! et je vous garantis que les gastronomes ne seront pas déçus non plus :-D
N'hésitez pas à échanger avec Joan et Nicolas, c'est un grand plaisir de rencontrer des hôtes qui ont le vrai esprit de l'échange :-)
Merci encore à vous pour cette formidable hospitalité !
Solange et Emmanuel
Bonjour Solange et Emmanuel pour votre gentil commentaire. Nous avons eu la chance, pour notre premier échange sur ce site , de vous avoir comme partenaire. Une expérience parfaite qui ne donne qu'une envie recommencer !
We received Tony in our home for 3 weeks this summer and it was a great pleasure for many reasons: communication was excellent, arrangements before his coming were easy to agree on, Tony was very careful with our house and left it as he found it... almost as we found many nice presents waiting for us when we returned!
It was a little bit of work for him to water the plants and the garden and also send regularly the mail to my mother as it was redirected in our home. He did it with no hesitation nor reluctancy and we were very grateful.
We also had good discussion on WhatsApp during and after his stay, so it was as if we knew each other for a long time :-)
You should not hesitate a second to swap with Tony!
