About our home

Our duplex is in the Zone 1-2 of the Paris metro (zone A).
The closest metro station is just a 2 min walk.
You can visit all the touristic places inside Paris easily.

It's a 3BR / 2.5 bath duplex that has a modern style and the feel of a house. It's charming with exposed beams, hardwood floors, and 2 balconies which overlook a quiet street with restaurant terraces. Lovely and open it feels like a loft.

Upstairs (in the roof) : a large living room with picture windows that open on 2 balconies where 4 people can sit around a table by squeezing a bit, an open concept modern kitchen with all the necessary equipment (expresso machine, ...) and a master bedroom with ensuite "italian style" shower room and toilet. There are 6 skylight windows with monitored controlled windows/curtains and rain sensors that close them automatically when it rains.

Downstairs: the entry of the duplex, 2 bedrooms (190cm / 6.25 ft beds) , 1 bathroom with jacuzzi bath and 1 another toilet room.

High Speed fibre Wifi (500 Mbit/s) in the whole duplex.
International TV channels + Netflix.
Free phone calls with our fixe phone to most international destinations (USA included).

We have a portable AC in the large open space. But note that this is NOT a centralized A/C that cools every room (NO A/C in the bedrooms).

There is also a silent ceiling fan in the master bedroom (installed after the photo shoot), a several standard fan in all the rooms.

We've already done a lot of home swaps abroad and we have a lot of documentations in English to help you. Have a look at our Guestbook to read more than 10 comments left by of our exchange partners:

Car exchange is possible in cas of a simultanaous exchange : we can propose a car exchange with our own an automatic SUV. It includes a prepaid parking just next to our building.
The metro is the best choice for all Paris attractions, but a car can help to get out the city (Disneyland, suburb...).

Please note those important aspects:
- No elevator: it's a walk-up building. We are at 2nd and 3rd level (3rd and 4th floors in US language). And it's a duplex with its own staircase... So you'll need to be in a good shape!
- Our duplex is dangerous for toddlers: no stair barrier, no stair ramp, easy access to the terraces when a picture window is open....

REVIEWS FROM HOME EXCHANGERS (www.homeexchange.com/homes/view/1371277) :

- Bruno from Brazil (April 20th 2019)
"Great experience !! Ludovic’s appartement is very comfortable and the dining and living rooms under the roof windows are outstanding ! Neighborhood is very quiet and we found everything needed at walking distance. Subway station is very close offering easy and quick access to Paris center. Communication was friendly and Ludovic provided lots of interesting recommendations nearby. Very successful exchange; we’ll not hesitate if an opportunity appears to exchange with Ludovic again !"

- Sofia from Sweden (July 27th 2017) :
"We had an excellent Paris holiday staying in the home of Ludovic and Régine!
Thier apartment is nice and well situated in Issy les Moulineaux, with metro and all services you need nearby. Grocery shops, nice restaurants and bakery just around the corner. We really appreciated coming back to "our neigbourhood" in the evenings after a long day in the bustling center of Paris and to begin our mornings with a stroll to the bakery.
Everything was well prepared and organised for our visit. It felt safe for us as beginners that Ludovic and Régine clearly where experienced home exchangers. Communication was easy all along!
We highly recommend a home exchange with Ludovic and Régine!"

- Sabine from Germany (April 9th 2017)
"We had a great time at Ludovics and Regines place. The apartment is bright and cozy, we loved it. Direct access to heaven - because of all the roof windows!
Everything was well organized and described - no questions open!
Very friendly, uncomplicated, humorous and welcoming people and communication.
Exploring Paris with the metro was perfect. We bought a one week ticket with photo.
The apartment is very close to the metro station, to a bio supermarket, to an excellent bakery! Excellent place to discover Paris! We can recommend it!
We found our home like we left - everything perfect.
Vielen Dank für dieses Erlebnis!
Sabine and Thomas"

- Marc from USA-California (July 14th 2016)
"We had an absolutely wonderful exchange with Ludovic. They were excellent guests to have in our home, and would love to have them again. And Ludovic's place in Paris is just right for a family. I agree that it is cozy, modern, clean and fully equipped. The location is fabulous, and we loved the little community of Issy. Ludovic (and his parents!) were very responsive, friendly, and conscientious. They are wonderful people and doing an exchange with them will enhance your life."

- Bjoern from Berlin (Dec 26th 2015) :
"I had a very pleasant stay at Ludovic's place, which is cosy, modern, clean and fully equipped. Metro/subway is very close, as are bakery, groceries, restaurants. A ride to Paris center is only about 20min, to Versailles it's even faster. We had a very good communication before, during and after our exchange."

- John from NYC-USA (juilly 24th 2014)
"Had a wonderful time at Lud and Regine's apartment. Lovely open plan living with terrace views. Great location right near the Metro station, quick ride to the center of Paris. Wonderful neighborhood - great restaurants and shops."

-------------------
EN FRANCAIS :
Nous sommes à 2 minutes à pied du métro et tout Paris est facilement accessible en métro.
Notre duplex (plus de 100 m2) est au 2ème et 3ème étage d'un petit immeuble des années 30. Il a été complètement refait par un architecte.
Domotique moderne, une douche italienne, jaccuzi, ... les poutres et des petites terrasses donnent un cachet à l'ensemble.

Wifi très haut débit par la fibre, appels téléphoniques gratuits vers la plupart des destinations, et large choix de chaînes télé + Netflix.

Nous voyageons souvent avec des échanges mutuels le plus souvent, et nous sommes aussi sur une autre plateforme et vous pourrez lire les commentaires laissés par nos partenaires d'échange :

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We are in the center of Issy les Moulineaux district, it's immediately adjacent to the 15th arrondissement of Paris and directly extends it (the limit of Paris 15 is a 2 min walk).
The position on the map is correct, we are just a little closer to the metro (line 12) with a easy access to all Paris attractions and without any extra costs.

This district has the feeling of a village with a strong community feeling. It is composed of mostly wealthy, select residential neighborhoods. The Eiffel Tower is 4km away, and Notre Dame is 6 km away. All our visitors from the USA and other countries have loved this place.

There are several parks in a walking distance: we are between 3 parks which is great for a run, for a walk and for kids too !
The only water-park in Paris (Aquaboulevard) is just a 10min walk.
The closest swimming pool is a 5 min walk.

There is an supermarket just next to our building, it’s open 7/7 7am-10:30pm
Local shops and facilities at the town hall square are very close: tourism office, grocery stores, bakery, chemist, banks, beauty salon ... almost everything is just at less than 2 min walk. The outside market takes place twice a week all the year until 9 PM.

Issy is the district of the media industry in France, and most headquarters of TV channels are there. That's why there are a lot of high-class restaurants (River Cafee, Manufacture, ...) where local workers have lunch. There are 50 restaurants at least in a 5 min walk area around our building.

The location is great for public transportation. The metro station "Mairie d'Issy" is a 2 minute walk (line #12). Also, one of the biggest Paris bus hubs is just a 2 min walk.

Distance:
- Parc des Expositions exhibition center at Porte de Versailles is 3 min metro ride.
- Convention is a 5 min by metro
- Most famous attractions (Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, le Louvre, Champs Elysées, Montparnasse Tower ...) are between 10 and 40 min metro away.
- Versailles Palace is only 15 min away with a local train.

Orly airport (ORY) is 25 min away, and Roissy airport (CDG) is 45 min away.
Paris Montparnasse train station is 15 min away by metro.
