Especially Passionate About

We love jazz music, architecture, museums, wine and food, hiking and literature.

We like long term exchanges because it allows us to live like locals. We are always trying to expand our knowledge of French culture, economy and politics, and also improve our French skills. A long term stay in France will help us to improve our skills and enrich our education.

Vanessa & Sébastien from Toulouse said

We had a perfect exchange with John and Lily. Their home is beautiful and spacious. You will enjoy the terrace and the garden as well as the kitchen which will make all cookers happy! The situation is perfect, just near the golden gate park, we enjoyed going running in the park every morning! The muni (tramway) is available at the end of the street and there are plenty of restaurants and stores in the neighborhood! John and Lily are perfect hosts, they answer to your questions immediately and they took great care of our home! We enjoyed meeting them at the end of our trip, they are such interesting people and great cookers!

Sylvie from 12th arrondissement of Paris said

Our stay at Lily and John's apartment in San Francisco was wonderful. Their beautiful home is very well located near the Golden Gate Park, close to many buses and to the Muni tram that goes downtown in 15min. A lot of very nice restaurants and shops are just a few blocks away. Their home has also a very nice back patio to enjoy breakfast or dinner during sunny days. We had the chance to meet some of their neighbors and friends who could show us some nice restaurants. Lily and John had also a very long list of all the good places to visit in town, and we really enjoyed meeting them while in Paris. We felt completely at home at their place.

What we said about Sylvie's house:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Guy & Sylvie's apartment. It is well-located in the 12 arrondissement, close to many shops and restaurants, and to the Gare de Lyon station. The Coulée Verte parkway and the Métro are only a short walk, and just two blocks away is a wonderful covered market that is open in the mornings. We were lucky enough to spend some time with Guy & Sylvie and they were wonderful hosts, eager to show us their favorite restaurants. The apartment itself is in a beautiful Hausmann building. We stayed for three weeks and felt right at home. In this review we included two photos of the wonderful views of Paris from the balconies.

Isabelle from Poitiers said

Découvrir les États Unis par San Francisco et la maison de John et Lily a vraiment été extraordinaire. De plus, nous avons eu la chance de passer quelques jours en France, avec eux lors de leur séjour à Poitiers. Ils sont un couple charmant et d'une extrême gentillesse et avec lequel nous avons partagé de trop courts moments. Leur maison située en plein centre de San Francisco, près des commerces, des restaurants, du métro, du Golden Gate Park, ... est très agréable et très calme, vraiment reposante. Ce séjour nous a donné envie de revenir, les 3 semaines passées ont été trop courtes !!!
