A village house in the center of which is a small haven of peace
Located at the bottom of a pedestrian dead end, my house is somewhat atypical. Upon entering the house, the first thing you will see will be the patio. To your right, a well equipped kitchen, as well as a small utility room, and to your left you will see the living room. In the living room you will find enough to spend a pleasant evening, warm, thanks to a mixed stove (pellets or logs).
On the first floor, there is a white and black bathroom, and just next to it, a bedroom.
You will have to go to the 2nd floor to find a large dressing room and another bedroom that I use as an office.
All rooms in the house have a view of the patio. It is certainly not very big, but you will find a small above-ground swimming pool there that I am installing just for the summer, and a small table to take your meals there.
My house is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Indeed, to reach the impasse you will have to take a small staircase of 3 steps. And the house is composed on two levels.
Canohès is a village at the gates of Perpignan (5 min by car), which is appreciated for its tranquility.
A few shops nearby (bakery, fruit and vegetables and butcher) will allow you to do some shopping. At the entrance of the village there is a large supermarket.
Surrounded by large natural spaces you can go jogging, walking, cycling and this, a few minutes walk from the house.
Around Canohès you can go to Villeneuve de la Raho lake to swim or eat there at "Le Moorea" for example.
On Saturday morning you will also be able to go to the Thuir Market, very well stocked, where you can treat yourself to good regional products.
Perpignan, Capital of Roussillon, "City of Art and History" and "20th Century Heritage" will charm you with its authenticity.
In September, you will be able to walk its streets and discover architectural treasures while browsing a large Photojournalism Festival, unique in the world "VISA pour l'Image".
Roussillon, mosaic of colors, flavors and scents can only seduce you.
The Canigou, the hillsides carpeted with vines, the scrubland, the fishing ports and the soft sandy beaches will never cease to charm you.
Welcome to Catalan Country!

Chantal was a perfect guest. The communication with her was smooth and frequent, and she was very understanding even when there was a risk of cancellation due to covid (which luckily wasn't necessary). Chantal took great care of our apartment, watered our balcony plants every day and left the apartment spotless clean and in perfect condition, as if no one was ever there :) We met with Chantal briefly upon her arrival which was very nice. We would definitely recommend exchanging with Chantal and we wish Chantal many wonderful exchanges in future! :)
Natalia and Cian are a very nice couple who welcomed me into their home for a few days. Local products were left on the table for me, which is very much appreciated.
Their very bright, comfortable and carefully decorated modern apartment is located just 10 minutes from the train station. From there you can go to the center of Warsaw.
Warsaw is a very pleasant city, with many things to see and do. As it is very large, I advise you to take the 3-day card allowing you to use all public transport (metro, bus, tram and train)
I would like to thank Natalia and Cian for their trust and their kindness, and wish them very pleasant exchanges for the years to come.
A solitary traveler, I take advantage of my travels to pursue my passion, which is photography and particularly so-called "street" photography. Photographers such as Ronis, Fred Herzog, Joel Meyerowitz, Harry Gruyaert, to name a few, are a source of inspiration for me.
I have been home exchanging for several years. I started with Trocmaison, which has since become Homexchange, where I carried out 7 exchanges (NYC, Chicago, Amsterdam, Berlin, Oslo....etc).
Of a rather reserved nature, I remain no less open-minded.
I usually travel alone.
