We are an American French family of four, happily living in Paris. We have two daughters: May who is 12 and Scarlett who just turned 9 and both love to travel. My husband, Andre is a former Captain and now is a harbour Pilot in the French Riviera. My name is Anna and I am a graphic designer.
We just moved to Paris two years ago and are still furnishing our apartment but it is already very comfortable and cozy. (The apartment will be entirely rebuilt during the year 2020)
The central location is the apartment’s biggest draw. Notre Dame de Paris is a one minute walk. The Seine River is just at the end of our street, where the pedestrian sides are perfect for an early run or a leisurely sunset walk. The Pantheon, the Jardin des Plantes and the Jardin du Luxembourg are all close within our neighborhood. Across the Seine is the famous Marais along with the Centre Pompidou or the Louvre.
We also have a secondary house in the South of France, which allows us to do non-simultaneous home exchanges.
We have done several successful exchanges in the past years and have loved it (in France, but also Chicago, NYC and London). We take care of others' houses like our own and have had only positive experiences.
We are keen travelers but for the next year we will be only going to Russia next summer 2021.
