During summer 2009, we experimented the home exchange principle for the first time. We think ourselves very lucky to have started this adventure with Paul and Trish, who welcomed us the very day before they were leaving for France... They took time to introduce us to some of their neighbours, to drive us around to show us the main shops, restaurants, etc. Paul and Trish are both very welcoming, warm and sincere. We had a great evening with them... It was almost sad to see them go the day after. We spent a really nice time in their large and comfortable house, nested in the woods, in the heart of New England. We could visit the area (wichich is perfect for nature and sports lovers), aswell as Cape Cod, Boston and New York... Their friends and neighbours were as charming and welcoming as Paul and Trish ; They immediatly "adopted" us as members of their friendly group and we shared nice and funnny evenings with them. We really hope we'll see all of them again sooner or later... This first home exchange and first time in the United-States was definitively successful and we surely advise and recommend exchanging with Paul and Trish.

What we said about Valéry's house:

We had a wonderful exchange with Celine and Valery in their charming, roomy apartment. The home was just outside of central Paris. There was plenty of local restaurants, shops and services in the local neighborhoods. Public transportation in and out of Paris was nearby, accessible and easy to figure out. Celine and Valery did a wonderful job preparing the place for our visit; leaving behind a great of information regarding their home, the neighborhood and Paris in general. We had an opportunity to meet Celine and Valery because they arrive in the US a day before we left for Paris. They are bright, lovely, fun people who took great care of our home and actually spent time with our local friends...who fell in love with them. We highly recommend an exchange with Celine and Valery. -Paul & Trish
