Member description
—— ENGLISH —— (voir français plus bas !) Bonjour, ;o) We are a French couple, and we have been together for 23 years. We are now both Dads to a three year old, well behaved son. Living in France, we are used to travelling around the world to visit and to discover new ways of life and amazing places...Our son has always travelled with us since he was born and he flew for the first time at the age of 2 weeks…his passport is filling up quickly! We have been home exchangers since 2000 on different platforms... and we have been on Home Exchange platform since 2015 (before the merge!), and also Homelink & People Like Us now. We are open to exchange any time of the year, on every continent for: - a reciprocal simultaneous exchange, - a reciprocal non simultaneous exchange, We can host you in one of our 3 properties located in France or in Morocco. They are all located in the heart of historical areas: - MARRAKECH, Kingdom of Morocco Our traditional 17th century Riad, in the heart of the historical old Medina of Marrakech. Totally renovated with all modern commodities. Our employees are on site to take care of you 24/7. Easy flight connexion from any European capital… even flights from North America. (Marrakech is 2h40 flight from Paris). Or - in PARIS, France, Our newly renovated apartment, in the historical & pedestrian area Le Marais (4th district), just near the Paris City Hall This is one of the two best areas to stay in Paris, most of it is pedestrian and it is very quiet. It cannot be more central! ;o) or - in ROUEN, Capital of Normandy (1 hour from Paris!) Our newly renovated apartment, in the historical antic shops pedestrian area, facing the Big Cathedral & the Archbishop's House ! Surprise us! We are open on the dates of exchange to fit your schedule and on the destination... It could be a last minute exchange, next summer, or even next year. Why not… We like to organise our holidays a long time in advance (it is always better for us), and we have lots of possibilities… Even 2 years before, this is not a problem for us... BUT, we thank you to contact us ONLY if you really want to come to our house. Soon, we will begin to plan our « 18 month World Tour »… for 2020/2021 ! So… We could plan to stop in your area! ;o) We are free to come to your home during French school holidays, but also during long week-ends and French bank holidays. A few days or several weeks... That means: --> for 2019: - October 19 to November 15 ( in Canada, Ontario ONLY), we can do different homes - December 20 to January 5, 2020. —> for 2020: - February 1 to March 1 (in a sunny place !), - April 10 to April 26, - April 30 to May 3 (in Europe!), - May 7 to May 10 (in Europe!), - May 19 to May 24 (in Europe!), - May 29 to June 1 (in Europe!), - June 26 to August 27 (Anywhere...), - October 16 to November 1 (Anywhere...), - December 18 to January 3, 2021. We are VERY serious and VERY clean, and we are looking for VERY respectful & VERY clean people! As we really take a good care of our home, we will be taking very good care of yours… This is important for us to find people who have the same way of living! ;o) If you contact us, can you please bear in mind that we NEED: - good & firm mattresses ! This is VERY important for us, and you could expect the same from us…We do not want to wake up in the morning with backache! (« Good mattresses » for us, does not mean « a 3000 euros mattress », but simply a « good quality mattress, less than 10 years old and firm»). AND - a good internet connexion to support a video call for professional needs! If you don’t have this in your home, no problem BUT let us know IN ADVANCE… We could accept the exchange, but we will need to organise ourselves to stay connected for work !!! And we don’t want to have a last minute surprise. We are both non -smokers and we are looking for a smoke- free home as Franck is severely allergic to tobacco smoke. NO EXCEPTION as Franck can strictly NOT stay in an apartment where people smoke… or it will be a direct trip to the "hospital emergency service"... We love doing « home exchanges" because it is very nice to stay in an authentic atmosphere, with good equipment in the kitchen, in the living rooms and real beds. A place where you really live… We have been disappointed too often by houses to rent, some hotels, or air-bnb proposing basic equipment and bad quality that can ruin your holidays… So, if you propose us to swap with a rental Appartment, why not if it offers good equipment and does not have a mattress which is ready for the trash ! We will always be two adults and one child travelling. Do not be worried about your interior, respect is question of education… and a well educated child is VERY important for us! If you are traveling with kids, we expect EXACTLY the same from you ;o) A bientôt, Franck
