“Thank you to Isabelle and Alain for the opportunity to stay in their lovely home in Paris. The apartment was very clean with ample space for our family to relax, eat and sleep and it offered all of the modern conveniences. Beyond that, it also offered the charm and beauty of Parisian courtyard living. Upon our arrival in the apartment, they had thoughtfully left us tourist books and some local cheese, meat, a baguette and some other treats to kick off our Paris experience. It was such great spot from which to explore the Paris. The apartment is in a great part of the city (2nd arrondissement - right in the heart), very close to the Metro and the Rue Montorgueil pedestrian area. Shops, cafes and restaurants are steps away so we spent several evenings enjoying the local restaurants and people watching. The really unexpected treat was the view of the Eiffel Tower from our daughters room! We had a perfect family vacation. Isabelle and I communicated frequently before the exchange. She was quick to respond and we even got to meet briefly when we arrived in Paris. Isabelle and Alain also took great care of our house and watered our plants for us. Thank you so much for making our first exchange experience such a great one!”

“Thanks a lot to Isabelle and Alain for letting us stay in their wonderful flat. It is located in the very heart of Paris, in the second arrondissement. It is very nice, cosy, clean and comfortable. Most of the visits can be done on foot and there is an underground station at the bottom of their street. The rue Montorgueil which is pedestrian is close by and with all its small shops (where you can buy meat, cheese, fruit etc...) it makes you forget you are still in Paris and not in a little French village. Paris is truly beautiful and must be on your top ten list of things to do before you die! Apart from all the visits Paris has to offer, we really enjoyed the fact that it was so easy to walk in the Marais district from Isabelle and Alain's flat. Thanks a lot, we had a great time! Flavie and Marc”
“ Isabelle and Alain and their twin sons are delightful people who went far beyond the norm to welcome us to Paris. Their apartment is generous in size and comfort, and it is only steps away from the very lively market street of rue Montorgueil. Despite the nearness to so much activity, the apartment itself is a haven of quiet and its open windows provided perfect breezes to counter the heat of the Parisian summer. It afforded us what we have always wanted: the ability to step immediately from an exchange into the streets of the city. It is within walking distance to many of the sites anyone would want to see in Paris. We arrived late on a Saturday night and since many of the stores are not open early Sunday, Isabelle made sure we had coffee, milk, bread, homemade preserves, and other delights for our Sunday morning breakfast. The family even went out of their way to invite us for a two-night stay in their country home in the Champagne region, where we were able to meet their boys and Isabelle\'s mother, Karine, a woman as lovely and as gracious as Isabelle herself. It was a perfect, idyllic respite from the busyness of Paris. All in all, this was easily one of our best exchanges among a range of wonderful ones.”
Where is it?
Nous vivons dans un immeuble très agréable avec une très grande courtoisie entre voisin. J'ai toujours été parisienne et pour rien au monde je ne changerai de quartier tant celui ci est exceptionnel! nous vivons comme dans un village en plein coeur de la capitale. A quelques mètres d'une célèbre rue piétonne parisienne la rue "Montorgueil". Il est difficile de passer dans cette rue sans s'arrêter à une terrasse de café prendre un verre tant c'est agréable. Vous pouvez parcourir tout Paris sans jamais prendre une voiture ou un taxi, tout est à porté de main (de pied) puisque vous êtes au centre. Vous pouvez vous rendre à pied au louvre, aux jardins du palais royal et du luxembourg, sur les champs élysées, au sacré coeur, sur les grands boulevards...
