We love going to the opera. I play the trumpet, Othilie play play the violin and the music starts Brunehilde starts the musical garden.
We take advantage of our city center location to get around by bike, to go to school to work ....
A very nice family, and a very nice place to stay if you want to visit Normandy, a really wonderful region! We had a really wonderful stay in Rouen, in Marie-Pierre and Fabien's flat. It's located in the citycentre, 5 minutes's walk from the cathedral but at the same time it's really peaceful, there is very little traffic in Rue Alsace-Lorraine. The nearby market is really great and you can buy all you need without going to the supermarket, and you can also have fun having a look at the stalls selling antiques and "brocante". When we got there the flat was very clean and tidy, and a neighbour was waiting for us to give us the keys and show us round the apartment. Marie-Pierre and Fabien's had left some local food and drinks for us (delicious Franch cheese, salmon, bread, fruit and vegetables, wine and cider). The flat is nice and there is everything you need to be comfortable. The guideboks and brochures Marie-Pierre left for us were really helpful, and we visited many places both in Rouen and in the region. Lots of interesting places are within an hour's drive from Rouen (Dieppe, Amiens, Trouville, Etretat, Le Havre, Honfleur). When we got back home, our house was clean and tidy and there was some food in the fridge so we could have dinner without going to the supermarket.
We had a very nice exchange with this friendly family. We enjoyed sharing with them on Skype a few months before leaving and we even met on the way. On site, a nice house, very well equipped, clean, food and a refrigerator stocked waiting for us. We particularly enjoyed the food (large and well equipped) and two bathrooms (shower and spa bath). The small garden is very nice and the kids enjoyed the water slide. Both cats are very affectionate, especially Bianchino. Numerous pamphlets and advice visits have served us well: Pisa, the beach, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Calci, Lucca, Peccioli Vicopisano ... There are so many tours nearby that we did have never been more than an hour away for a walk. When we returned, the apartment was as we left with food in our fridge.
We were having home exchange for 2nd time in Rouen, because were love Normandia region. The apartment was very spacious and in absolutely central position of the town, in Old Town. Next on the corner was amazing Boulanger-Patissier (You will never forget the taste of delicious sweets and bread here). One more thing we should mention - the girls rooms seemed to be like a toy shops! Our son did not wanted to go out for sightseeing, because there were so many toys to play with :))) To summarize - the Normandia region is worth to be explored, the Rouen - the city with its soul and the Family is very nice people.
We had a very nice exchange with Laura and Mantas. Their house is large and comfortable. They have a very spacious garden with a children's area and a kitchen. We regularly exchanged during the exchange which allowed us to give mutual advice for sightseeing.
Rouen is a very nice town and a great starting point to see other interesting places. The appartement is right in the center and in walking distance of all the historic sites of Rouen. It's a very comfortable house with a big bathroom and a nice modern kitchen. The house is very clean and well organized. The communication was execellent. We really enjoyed our stay.
Nous avons passé une semaine dans l'appartement d'Anja pendant les vacances de la Toussaint. C'est un très grand appartement, lumineux, et qui bénéficie d'un grand jardin derrière la maison. Lorsque nous sommes arrivés, un ami d'Anja, charmant, nous attendait pour nous accueillir et nous montrer la maison. Il y a un arrêt de bus à proximité, et l'ensemble des musées et curiosités d'Amsterdam sont à moins de 15 minutes. Il y a des commerces dans le quartier, aussi il est facile de s'approvisionner. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour et nous recommandons cette famille ! We spent a week in the apartment Anja during the Thanksgiving holiday. This is a very large apartment, bright, and has a large garden behind the house. When we arrived, a friend Anja, charming, waiting for us to welcome us and show us the house. There is a bus stop nearby, and all the museums and attractions in Amsterdam are less than 15 minutes. There are shops in the area, so it is easy to procure. We had a great stay and would recommend this family!
The Pajot-Cribier's home, warm and friendly, speaks very well of them, of their taste for beautiful things but also for the generosity and the joy of living. This pretty old house in the heart of the beautiful city of Rouen (a hidden for many tourists who forget her jewelry, and they don't know what they're missing!) will allow you know all the most nice corners of this fantastic town. And if you have any questions, Fabien and Mapi will clarify all your doubts, revealing the best attractions, walkings, events in the city. We recommend this house in the heart of art, nature, good food and the comfort of a home also thought for your children.
La maison est immense avec une bibliothèque très fournie. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les deux jardins ce qui permet de profiter du soleil à n'importe quel moment !
Nous avons passé 10 jours à Pamplune. L'appartement de Maïté est agréable et propre, des petits cadeaux attendaient nos filles à notre arrivée. Des commerces sont à proximité et le centre historique n'est qu'à quelques minutes avec une très agréable promenade. Nous avons pleinement profité des opportunités de Pamplune, de la Navarre et du pays Basque. Nous vous recommandons cette région d'Espagne.
Estimados Mapi y Fabien, muchas gracias por un impresionante intercambio. Sois una familia estupenda. El apartamento es muy muy bonito, con todo lo necesario para pasar una buenas vacaciones. Está en la mejor zona de Rouen y es perfecto para conocer Normadía. Dear Mapi and Fabien, thank you very much for an awesome exchange. You are a wonderful family. The apartment is very nice, with everything needed for a good holiday. It's in the best area of Rouen and is perfect for visit Normandy.
Nos 15 jours passés dans l'appartement d'Antonia et Ana ont été très agréables. L'appartement est frais et se situe dans un quartier commerçant mais calme. Le centre ville historique n'est qu'à quelques minutes à pied, ainsi nous n'avons pas eu à utiliser notre voiture pour profiter de Séville. Les enfants d'Antonia et Ana ont de nombreux jeux de sociétés, nos filles ont ainsi pris beaucoup de plaisir à les découvrir ! Nous vous recommandons vivement cette sympathique famille.
Lo scambio con Mapi e Fabien è stato semplicemente perfetto. Il loro appartamento è molto bello, luminoso, silenzioso pur essendo in pieno centro a Rouen, nel cuore dell'Alta Normandia. Abbiamo ammirato molto la loro città e la Normandia. La loro ospitalità è stata molto apprezzata, così come i frequenti contatti che abbiamo avuto durante lo scambio. Grazie per la bellissima esperienza!
We spent two weeks in Normandy this Summer as guests of the Pajot-Cribier house in Rouen. Fabien's and Marie-Pierre home is one of the most beautiful and comfortable places we've visited so far. The house is in a great location: facing a large but quiet road, few steps awy from the old centre of Rouen, right behind its magnificent cathedral and next to Rouen's most lively open-air market. As for the surroundings, Normandy has so much to offer (art, history, food, music, nature, beaches and so on) that in two weeks we barely scratched the surface. Everything in this exchange run smoothly: the Pajot-Cribier were always very keen on helping and in giving out useful information. When finally we came back to Florence, our home was clean and ready for us.
Un échange parfait ! L'appartement de Massimo, Lisa et Dafné est très agréable, il est lumineux, calme et à proximité des toutes les commodités. Nous avons été très touchés par la prévenance de Massimo, de Lisa et de leur amie Oliva pour notre arrivée mais aussi tout au long de notre séjour ! Nous vous recommandons vivement cette famille !
