- Céline (36)
We traveled a bit but we love our Paris :)
We are a young married couple in our thirties. Stéphan is manager in an IT company and Céline works for French administration. We really enjoy our district as it's evolving every day and so we rarely go over 4 subway stations for our common activities.
We are non smokers and allow smoking only on the balcony. We have a few plants that will need watering once a week and no pets.
If you have a problem with something in our apartment (you should not ;)), we have close friends in the neighborhood that could help you.
May 1 — May 17, 2015 These dates are flexible
I should attend a Microsoft conference from may 3 to may 8 in Chicago so I'm looking for an exchange during this week (to spend less on hotel fees) and the next to add a few personal days for me to visit Chicago (my wife would join me). For this week, within 30 minutes of the Mc Cormick center would be ideal (not that important for visiting days :) )
We started scuba diving for our honeymoon trip in the Maldives, we've since tried Florida, Egypt, Zanzibar and Azores.
Stéphan loves nature photography and is trying to improve with simple, easy dives wile Céline keep an eye on him and the urshins!
Your building was modern and quiet, with a pleasant view of the language & culture building across the street. The neighborhood seemed very safe and the river, metro and RER were 2-3 blocks away. We found the post office, a bakery, and several lively restaurants within walking distance too. And, of course the Monoprix store for groceries was nearby and accepted our credit cards. We had a great time. Our Paris friends who dropped by were also very impressed with the large size of the apartment. We were very happy with the exchange and your suggestions for nearby walks.
Our stay was great! Chris and Steve were very helpful with logistics and the what we could do in the area (skiing, restaurants, etc.). The location is very nice as it's in the forest and we could enjoy snow (it was in january) and squirrels, it's a really calm place, just what we were looking for. The house is comfy and everything we needed was there including cooking gear. Everything is accessible with a safeway and some restaurants a few minutes drives and multiple skiing stations nearby too. South lake Tahoe is not that far and we could enjoy everything Tahoe has to offer during winter. We just hope their stay at our home was nice too :)
We had a 101% successful exchange with this nice and friendly French couple (Christmas 2014 - New Year 2015). When we came back, our home was in perfect condition, so I can fully recommend this exchange partner for a nice visit in Paris. In general, the Paris apartment was very nice and had lot of space + in a very good location near metro/RER C station and all needed stores and restaurants. Metro had also elevators which was very handy with baby strollers.
