Two More Home Exchange Offers – Is One of Them ‘The One?’

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!
