General overview

Our home is a recently remodeled 1,200-square-foot, 3rd-floor apartment right in the center of beautiful Nancy, France. The building dates to 1890 and is directly across the street from the train station, which in a few hours can take you to Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Belgium, not to mention all around France. (Paris is just over an hour away on the high-speed train.)

The space

The apartment features three bedrooms, one of which is currently an office but we use it as a guest bedroom as well. There's lots of light with windows on three sides, hardwood floors, marble fireplaces and high ceilings. There's also a beautiful shared garden on the ground floor complete with a bbq grill. In addition, Nancy is a gorgeous city, known for its art nouveau architecture and UNESCO world heritage site Place Stanislas. Car exchange is also a possibility.

Guest access

On 3rd floor, no elevator.

Notes

For guests with children: Our boys share a room, which you can see pictured in our photos, and there are mountains of toys for both of them. Their bookshelf, also pictured, has a full shelf of English books. And they’ve got pop-up books, plastic animals, legos, balls, cars, dinosaurs, costumes, puppets, books on CD, Playmobiles, art supplies, musical instruments and on and on. It’s ridiculous. Then about a two-minute walk from our house is a midsize park with a playground and lots of room to run and play (Parc Blondlot). A ten-minute walk from our house is the pépinière, a giant park with 150-year-old trees, a massive playground, merry-go-round rides, ice cream, puppet shows, a restaurant and a zoo complete with monkeys. There are actually lots of nice parks in town, many of them with kids’ stuff like swings and slides. The Nancy aquarium is also great. It used to be a zoology research center, and they still have an amazing collection of stuffed animals on the second floor. Also, the main theaters that show movies in English are a both a short walk from our apartment. And there are two indoor children’s recreation areas in town, where they can bounce and climb and slide. Finally, we have some English-speaking friends here with young kids we can hook you up with as well if you’re looking for play dates. That’s Nancy. For day trips outside of Nancy there’s a ton too. The zoo of Amnéville is world-class. There’s an open air wildlife park called Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix that’s stunning as well. There’s a cool ropes course in my parents-in-law’s village just outside Nancy called l’Avent-Garde that has things for young kids up to adults. There’s lots of forested hiking areas around here too, especially in Les Vosges. There’s a lake an hour drive away that has swimming and boating activities. And there’s Disneyland Paris just down the road if you somehow get bored with all of that.
