We had a wonderful exchange with the Kaempfs! Their house is absolutely beautiful and located in a lovely suburb of Paris. We could walk to a great bakery every morning for fresh pastries, and the house is in 1 minute walking distance of great restaurants, a bi-weekly farmers' market and shops. The neighbors were friendly and we could easily get to all the major sight-seeing destinations in Paris and surroundings (Versailles, Giverny) by car or by train. Our kids enjoyed playing with their cat Sucre and guinea pig Caspi as well. Our house, car, and pets were in perfect condition when we returned home. We'd exchange again any time!
We spend a wonderful week in the absolutely magnificent home of the Kaempf family in Le Vesinet, west of Paris, enjoying the stunning house with its beautiful garden. While Le Vesinet offers an absolute family friendly and relaxing neighborhood with lots to see and do, the ride into Paris downtown is with approx. 30 minutes very convenient and the train station so close by. Thanks to good luck with the weather, we were able to discover lots of different things in Paris and also spend nice family time relaxing back at home. Everything was perfectly organized and we felt very welcome right from the start. A huge thanks for a magnificent week to Gaelle, Benjamin, Max et Hippolyte for your hospitality and kindness. And a special greeting to Sucre, the cat, that kept us very good company. MERCI!
Nous venons de passer une belle semaine parisienne dans la maison de Gaelle et Benjamin, elle est charmante, le tuf et la brique lui donnent beaucoup de cachet, tout comme les céramiques . La meteo n'a pas permis que nous profitions du jardin, dommage, les parterres fleuris et parfumés sont très accueillants au sortir du métro tout proche. Aller à Versailles n'est pas plus difficile que de gagner La Défense ou le Louvre! Et puis, nous avons retrouvé la maison parfaitement rangée au retour, merci.
