Duplex of about 200 sq meters, at the top floor of little building (with elevator), where you can enjoy the view on Istanbul roofs while having a barbecue on the terrace ! 2 bedrooms with double beds, 1 child bedroom with single bed, double and single futons that can be added. Washing machine, dish-washer, and a lot of other equipment that could facilitate your life while in holidays !
The flat is located on the European side of Istanbul (Sisli area), in a quite street, very close to all shopping commodities, to city center Taksim (just one metro station), and to all transportation leading to Sultanahmet historical sites (40 mn) or Bosphorus shores (15 mn). Plenty of activities for adults and children ! And of course, 2010 being the year when Istanbul is European Capital of Culture, you'll have plenty of exhibitions and shows to enjoy in every part of town !!!
We're a French-English couple (journalist and teacher), with a 4 years old daughter, and we've been living in Istanbul since 2006, after having lived and worked in various countries in Asia and Middle-East. We had several other successful home exchanges in the past, and really enjoy this way of discovering new places and meeting new people.
