Another interesting week of home exchange offers. I received two more offers from France.
The first offer was for a very cute two bedroom apartment in the mountains in the Hautes-Pyrenees department and came with a car exchange. Of course this listing is too small for my large family, so is not one that I will be considering. I do want to point out here, that you do not have to own a large home to be eligible to try a home exchange. You don’t even need to own the property, you can be a renter.
The second offer is for a beautiful 5 bedroom stone home on the coast of Bretagne (Brittany.) I am very much interested in this home and am currently discussing a potential exchange with the family who owns it. I have been dying to visit this northern coast of France, since I visited the Normandy coast, just east of it, in 2009. This particular home is in a wonderful location to visit places that interest me greatly, like St. Malo, Dinan, and Mont St. Michel, just to name a few. It’s also close enough to Paris, about a three hour drive, for us to revisit that wonderful city. The only issue with this home is that the family only has a VW Beetle Convertible to exchange. It’s a really cute car, but too small for my family. So, the very nice owner is currently trying to arrange for a larger car to offer us for exchange. I hope they are successful, because we are very interested in this wonderful home and location!
