Welcome to the European Capital ! -house available only in July 2015 for non simultaneous exchange
we are a family of 3, 1 adult and 2 girls. Margareth is an interior designer, imported from France, working part-time for an engineering office specialized in sustainable construction and part-time on her own interior design projects.
Sometimes a friend comes with us to enjoy the trip.
We have already travelled around the world with my daughters Enyd and Fréhel. We are very curious and looking not only for house but life experience exchanges.
we have exchanged already with houses in France ( Carnac, Lyon, Lille, Nancy, Nimes, Paris several times) in Morocco, England and Holland ( Amsterdam several times), Indonesia, Our last exchange is Colombia. We are looking now to further destinations. As we are planning to go overseas for the next summers ( United States and Canada) and have some exchanges already organized, the exchange can be non-simultaneous. Looking forward to meeting you..

we love discovering cities throught their inner colors ( museum, buildings and food), trying to catch and keep the special light they offer ( sun, cafes, movies)
Cet échange de maison est avant tout une rencontre merveilleuse avec une famille qui nous a accueilli au delà de ce qu'on pouvait attendre dans le cadre d'un simple échange. Nous avons eu la chance de passer du temps ensemble et de partager nos centres d'intérêt pour la déco et bien d'autres sujets. Nous recommandons chaudement la maison de Margareth et Frédéric, et si vous le pouvez, organisez vous pour un dernier brunch au flamingo, vous ne le regretterez pas ! A très bientôt !
our exchange in Nîmes with Myriam and Dominique was just wonderful. Their house is beautiful, in the center of Nîmes, so very easy to move around, and we were welcomed as old friends.. Nîmes is also a very interesting city to discover, and a very good spot to discover the area. ( Pont du Gard, Arles, Aix, la camargue;.). Moreover, we had the best weather ever. We wished we could stay longer to discover more.. may be another exchange...merci encore Myriam et Dominique.. We met Dominique again in Brussel and were very happy to discover with him one of his passions: Radio..
Margareth is interior designer and you will notice that in every place. It was very nice to explore all different rooms to find curious trivia, souvenirs from the four corners of the world and enjoy an interplay of colors. Although you can find there house in various interior magazines, make no mistake, this is a really family home where people loves to live in! On our arrival in Brussels we had a warm chat and we were introduced to 'Bruintje', their little cat. Seppe and Kamiel loved to look after him! The refrigerator was filled with goodies and the children (candy skewer) and ourselves (delicious chocolates and a bottle of wine) got a nice attention. The house is situated in a pleasant area within walking distance from the Grand place, Manneken Pis, etc.. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of this big city and had some nice conversations with the very helpful ' Brusselaars '. Margareth and Frédéric, Enyd and Fréhel are very nice, relaxed people with the heart on the right place. We can warmly recommend them for an exchange.
Visiting Brussels with our two young chidren for new year eve was a great experience. The house is very quiet, cosy and colourfold as you can imagine from the pictures. Margareth and Frédéric are great hosts and like to share tips about Brussels. In Schaerbeek, shops are open night and day and it's easy to get around. Our second swap, terrific
We highly recommand this family and appartement. Mathieu kept proposing some dates in order to welcome us in their appartement, even if they had already been in our flat almost 2 years ago. The appartement is beautifully furnished and very well situated. Even if you think that Barbès is very lively, you pass the door of the building and you find yourself in another world, green and quiet, with helpful neigbours. A must if you like architecture and wonderful surprises.
