“We had the opportunity to swap homes with Fabienne and Mohamed in the summer of 2015. We were lucky enough to meet both of them when they arrived in Canada and it was very nice to "know" the people who we were swapping with. They were so incredibly helpful, providing us with maps and recommendations of places to go and things to see. They were also very helpful when we encountered some challenges with our luggage when it was misplaced by the airline for 10 days - containing the house key! After spending some time in Paris, arriving at their home really felt like we were arriving home. It is bright and beautiful. We enjoyed the garden and the home-grown vegetables that were ripe when we arrived. The location is perfect for exploring Rennes and all of Brittany. We especially enjoyed our trips to Fougères, St. Malo and Dinard. Thank-you, Fabienne and Mohamed for helping us discover a beautiful area of France.”
Michael's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Fabienne and her family were the best of hosts for us in France. We especially enjoyed meeting them all for dinner in a cafe before we flew home from Paris on the same day that they returned from America. The fact that she speaks English fluently helped us through those moments when we ran out of phrases from our US French classes. Her home in Saint-Jacques-de-la-Lande was a perfect base for us to explore Bretagne, and we had everything we needed to relax and unwind after a day of sight-seeing. We loved walking through the neighborhood, and were lucky to be there during apricot season- no American apricots will ever match the taste of those we picked fresh from Fabienne's tree! We hope to keep in touch and that we will see them again in the future.”
