(français plus bas) I am Catherine, a writer/editor in a magazine, living with Claude who is a litterature teacher, a writer and a musician (flute, saxophone, piano). We have a charming female cat, Capucine, so we would favor people who like cats (however, friends can take care of her if you leave for a few days). We've done many successful exchanges with people from Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Strasbourg and Trento who loved our place and Montreal! We can give other references (exchanges we did through another website). We love this way of traveling! / Je suis Catherine, rédactrice dans un magazine, vivant avec Claude qui est écrivain, professeur de littérature et musicien à ses heures (flûte, saxophone, piano). Nous avons une charmante chatte appelée Capucine et cherchons donc des amoureux des chats de préférence (toutefois, des amis peuvent s'en occuper en cas d'absence plusieurs jours). Nous avons fait plusieurs échanges réussis avec des gens de Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Trento et Strasbourg qui ont tous aimé notre maison et notre ville! Nous pouvons fournir d'autres références (échanges conclus par un autre site). Nous adorons voyager de cette façon!
Last summer we stayed for 3 weeks in Claude and Catherine’s apartment, and we had one of our best holidays ever. We had the chance to meet Claude and Catherine both before and after our exchange, and they are the most friendly and helpful people. They really wanted us to have a great time in Montréal, gave us all kind of ideas for trips. We exchanged bicycles, and discovered Montréal by bike, but also got to see the lovely villages and great nature around Montréal, and we made a one week trip all along the St.Lawrence river, all the way to Tadoussac which was absolutely beautifull. The apartment of Claude and Catherine is very centrally located; we loved the neighbourhood, with all the main attractions nearby, but still a cool (non-touristy) atmosphere. We took care of Capuchine, the charming and peaceful house cat, who is adorable and amazingly peaceful, she doesn't even mew! We highly recommend to exchange with this lovely couple in such a cool and interesting city as Montréal. Thanks Claude and Catherine for this wonderful experience, and for taking so much care of our house during your stay in Amsterdam. Manon and Jalal
This was one of our best exchanges! Manon and Jalal are lovely people and their place is ideal to discover the «real» Amsterdam, while being very central and close to everything (the Amstel, the beautiful canals, etc.). We loved it!
