More about us

  1. We are a professional couple with a baby. One more will arrive in January 2019.
    We are currently living in Bondi Beach, Australia.
    As my parents will be visiting us from France, starting in mid January 2019, we are looking for a 1 bedroom apartment for them to stay, ideally located in Bondi Beach as well. The Byron Bay area would be great as well, as they are planning to spend some time there.
    They are both retired. My mother is a doctor, and my father was running his own business.
    We are open to non-simultaneous swaps or points swaps, to be used either by my parents (2 guests) or ourselves (family of 4), as we enjoy exploring the world.

  2. Amellia is Australian and I am French. We live between France, Australia and Portugal. Amelia is a lawyer and works for the Australian government. I am self-employed and run my own business.

  3. We like to feel like locals when we travel, so swapping homes just sounds like a great idea.
    We are very respectful and treat other people's home like ourselves, which is with great care.
    We have a cool and cosy one bedroom flat in Paris, located in one of the most exciting neighbourhood of the capital, and would love to welcome you there!

Where is it?


Santa Catarina/Bica, the oldest and most scenic neighbourhood of Lisbon, is as well the most central you can imagine :
It's just a few steps from Bairro Alto, a stomping ground of lively bars and restaurants.
It's 2 minutes away from Chiado (Baixa-Chiado metro station, Praca do Camoes), one of this city’s most notorious shopping quarters.
It's 5 minutes from Cais do Sodre (check it's market). Well a bit more on the way back, as streets are steep here!
Its 10 minutes from Rossio or Principe Real.
The most photographed street of Lisbon, Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo, is literally 20 meters from our doorstep. There, you will never get tired of watching Bica's funicular, Lisbon's spirit at it's best.
The mix in Santa Catarina is also fascinating : there is a Hermes flagship store and an old and tiny shoe store just around!
The many restaurants, bars, galleries, shops, theaters and museums to choose from within a 5 minutes radium won't leave you with much time on your hands!
The area has got everything. From grocery shops to butchers, pharmacies bookstores and gift shops.
Here are a few things I would recommend in the neighbourhood :
Start with a coffee at Cafe Brasileira. In this beautiful old place, you will feel the vibes of long gone Portuguese poets and writers.
Ride the Tram 28 for an amazing ride around the city (for just the price of a regular tram ticket).
Check the view at Miradouro Sta Catarina.
Go to a local place for lunch and ask for a Bifana (sandwich with a very thin steak inside. To be eaten with mustard!)
To head to the beach just walk down the road and jump on a train at the Cais do Sodré Train Station.
To sum it up, it's the perfect base to explore the city!
