We are a professional couple who live in France. My husband is French and I am American and we would like to visit family in Chelsea, NYC. Dom has only seen NYC on television and we often talk of visiting, especially during the holidays. We are both lovers of the city lifestyle although we presently live in a 13th century bastide village in SW France near to where Dom has had his accounting and business consulting office for 27 years. We have three holiday properties for you to choose from in Paris, Montreal, or our village of Lauzerte. The photos here are of our apartment in Paris but contact us if you would like to see the other houses.
