In the last several weeks I have started to receive a regular stream of home exchange inquiries from families in Europe who want to exchange homes with my family for next summer. This is because I have indicated in my home exchange listing that I am interested in going to Europe during the summer of 2015 for a month. In fact, we are looking for, not one but two, exciting home exchanges (most likely in two different countries.)
I thought it might interest my readers to see how frequently I receive offers of exchange, and more importantly to see the variety and quality of those offers.
So, starting today, I plan to post links to the homes I have been offered. This week I received two very nice offers (but you judge for yourself), one from the Paris area and the other from Amsterdam.
Hmmm…shall I accept this one in the Paris Area or maybe this one in Amsterdam. I’ll just have to wait to see, since I’m already corresponding with another family near Paris about a potential home exchange next summer. See below.
In addition to receiving offers, I have also begun to send a few offers. I’m currently talking with a family in Chartres, France. I sent them an inquiry in late August, and they have expressed a preliminary interest in an exchange. We have begun to get to know each other to see if we want to commit to the exchange. Take a look at their incredible home exchange offering. My fingers are crossed that this one will work out, because I love their location and their amazing home. But, if not this exchange…
I know two things for sure. My family will be going to Europe next year (although exactly where is anyone’s guess), and wherever it is, I’m certain it will be exceptional!
