Welcome to Paris and Neuilly !
I am Isabelle, 45 years old and have 2 children, Sophie (17) and Antoine (15). I work as an engineer for EDF (Electricité de France). I like reading, music (there is a piano at home), travelling. The children are very curious, well behaved and also love reading and travelling.
December 27 — January 4, 2015 These dates are flexible
Linda and I exchanged homes with Isabelle and her family in July and August, 2011. Isabelle's home is located in a very nice area with two markets within a short walk and a Velib bicycle station across the street. The Bois de Boulogne park is just across the street, too. There is easy access to buses, and Metro lines are within easy walking distance, too. The flat is fully equipped with everything we needed for a wonderful stay -- dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer, internet, etc. The flat has a very pleasant view of a courtyard with birds, trees, flowers, etc. Isabelle is a very nice person and was easy to email so that everything worked out great. We even met her sister prior to the exchange. When we returned, our home was in great condition so that we were very happy with the exchange. We highly recommend Isabelle for future exchanges.
We were in Hermosa Beach in July and August 2011. It was a very very good exchange ! Tom and Linda's house is very big and confortable, with all modern confort and even more, and very well located near a very nice beach. The children even had surf lessons at 5mn walking distance ! Hermosa Beach is also an easy place to visit LA. Tom and Linda are very nice and easy persons : it was a pleasure to discuss by mail before and during our stay. Tom had an answer to all questions and was happy to help me with any question or problem. When I came back to Paris I found that my flat was very neat : no one could say they had been living there for 3 weeks. As a conclusion, I would say that I recommend this exchange very much !
Nice and confortable house very close to the sea, in a small town, with pleasant beaches and restaurants, and without too many tourists. From there you can easily drive everywhere in the island. The people were very welcoming and gave us some information about what to do and visit in Gran Canaria. A very good experience with much sun and heat in the middle of the winter !
