About our home

Our home, a three-story house in a restricted-car street, was built 3 years ago. Both sides open on to paved gardens providing the perfect place to read, play ping-pong or sip a glass of wine !

We have designed our home with comfort and pleasure in mind: open-plan fully equipped kitchen/dining area with a dining-table that sits 8 people, a big sitting-room with comfortable sofas (1 convertable), television, sound system and a piano.

It accommodates 4 to 7 people: two bright bedrooms and a big bathroom (+ washing machine & dryer) on the second floor. The top floor features a double bedroom with en-suite shower-room and an open yoga space that can work as a 4th bedroom (sofa bed). Every window and door is equipped with electrical shutters. The house offers many shelves of books and DVDs in English and French! In addition to our city home, we have a cottage in rural Burgandy that can be part of the swap. The 200 year old cottage has 3 bedrooms & 1 bathroom. It is fairly basic but beautiful and set in wonderful scenery - great for hiking, fishing, wine-tasting, climbing...


More about us

  1. We are a family of four: Dany, Hervé, Sam (14) and Sara (11). We also have a dog and two cats who generally stay with friends during our holidays. Sam plays tennis, loves books and animation; Sara loves nature, arts and crafts and playing imaginary games. We both work in the cinema industry and Dany (who is half English) also teaches yoga & shiatsu. We are generally free in July or August and if we don't travel, we spend time in our country cottage in Burgandy (which can be included in the swap). We chose house swapping because we'd rather see a country through the eyes of its people and like the idea of a more authentic holiday. We will treat your home with respect. As a family, we all love traveling and feel very open to meeting people all over the world. In turn, we can help you plan a wonderful visit and hope our home offers you a great vacation in France.

Where is it?


Our house is in a very pretty area known as the "21st arrondissement" of Paris. Set in a quiet, restricted car street, the neighborhood is safe, calm and friendly. Paris is literally 3 minutes walk away! Our metro "Mairie Les Lilas" takes you downtown (République, Les Halles, Bastille) within 15 minutes. Les Lilas is equipped with the city bike Velib program. By car, Disneyland is 30 mins away, Charles de Gaulle airport is 20 mins away. As well as being a great place to stay when visiting Paris, Les Lilas is in easy walking distance of several swimming pools, big parks, tennis courses, etc. Boulangeries, grocers, wine-stores, cafés, and a supermarket are just round the corner. Our local market (3 times a week) features a range of treats, including organic produce. Les Lilas has a green, "villagey" feel to it that can be very relaxing after exploring Paris!
