Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We live in Rennes, the capital of Brittany (France north-west part), where there are a strong cultural identity (Celtic culture) and beautiful natural landscapes.

Our home is a stone town-house of 130 m2 (1,350 sqft) with a lot of light and a small garden around. Most of the windows are south and west facing. The house was built in 1955 but entirely renovated in 2010.
On the ground floor, there are the entrance, a big kitchen/dining-room (very bright with windows looking at the garden), a big living-room (wood-burning stove, bookcase, TV & sofa, home office...) and a small bathroom (with shower & toilet). On the upper floor, there are the landing, 3 bedrooms (1 with double bed, 2 with single beds), a bathroom (with bathtub) and a separated toilet.

The house is old but we fully renovated the interior and gave it modern comfort and a nice interior design (with a "vintage" touch). We had the facade repainted in November 2017 (the house has now a nice brown color). Almost all the rooms have hardwood floors. We have a private parking place in our garden.
The historical city center is close : 5 minutes by car, 20 on foot, 15 by bus or bicycle.
--> We can let you use our bicycles if you want.
--> You can also use the piano and the guitars.

Our house is perfect for 4 but we can receive 5 people because we have a (good) extra mattress (90 x 190 cm) that we can put in the living room or in one of the bedrooms.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our house is in the city but in a residential area. We are in a quiet street near to all amenities (bakery, chemist's/drugstore, ATM/cash-point, grocery, butcher...). Most of our neighbours have a garden so the neighbourhood is green and pleasant.

Transports : the bus (bus stop: 200 meters from the house) takes you in 10-15 minutes to the city center or to Rennes train station. By train, you can go to PARIS in 1h30 (TGV / high-speed train) or 3h30 by car. You can also reach Rennes international airport (20 min. by car) or Nantes airport (1h15).

Rennes is a medium city (200 000 inhabitants) with a very nice historical center with beautiful old houses. It's also a modern city with a very good quality of life. In the rankings, Rennes is always one of the "Best French cities to live in". It's a big town but it's very green (park, trees, individual houses with garden). A lot of inhabitants get around by bike or foot.
