Bonjour du Québec !
I am Lise, a technology professional , and sometimes my son Guillaume, a well behaved young men travels with me.
Fans of geography, history and culture, we also love sightseeing and enjoying what your surroundings have to offer. We have traveled a few times and made four exchanges already. We chose this way of traveling to enjoy places with a different point of view, outside of the crowd of hotels. We want to feel like home and so should you as well, in our home.

Really lovely people whom we are privileged to have kept in contact with over the years. Lise went above and beyond in her efforts to make sure we felt truly welcome and comfortable in her home and that we were fully prepared to enjoy the charming city of Montreal. The hot tub became a delightful ritual after a day of touristing. My son now goes to school at McGill in Montreal and its been reassuring to know we now have friends in that city that we can call upon.
We were lucky to exchange our home with Simone and Richard. It was a very nice experience, we felt like home and enjoyed visiting what Washington has to offer. Their home is well suited for a family and Simone was well organized to guide us in the house and the surroundings. We especially appreciated, since we travelled by car, meeting with them on our way and sharing dinner in a vineyard in the finger lake area. We also had the chance to met again, in Montreal this time, a few years after the exchange. Just to that say that home swapping is not just about travelling, it's also about meeting interesting people ! Thanks to you !
We had a wonderful exchange with Lise and her son Guillaume and would highly recommend them for future exchanges. Lise was incredibly helpful and gracious in planning logistics and gathering local information for us. Laval was a great springboard to see Montreal, Ottawa, and explore Quebec. The house and car were well appointed and we fell in love with their cat Gizmo. They treated our home and car with care and respect. We have only good things to say about the exchange and are glad that our first exchange went so smoothly! all the best, Leah & Jeff Valentine
Our exchange with the Valentine was definitively a positive experience. It was both our first time and trust was establish from the start. We exchange homes, cars and even mobile phones for two weeks !!! We were able to meet at both ends of the trip and it was very nice to get acquainted. Jeff picked us up at the airport and Leah had prepared good information for us on details of the house, the surroundings and local contacts should we need them. The house and the garden were very comfortable (very well equipped kitchen !) and it felt like home when we came back from a few days visit down to southern California. San Rafael is well located, close to San Francisco, the Napa Valley and the coast beaches and park. California is a place to see ! We had a wonderful vacation. And it was nice to come back home and find everything was perfect ! To Jeff & Leah... Thanks for sharing this first experience with us ! Lise & Guillaume
