Isabelle, Summer 2021
This summer, we exchanged our house 3 times:
– one week in July with Catherine and Yves in Mayenne ;
– one week in August in Champagne with Frédérique and Pascal ;
– a week in early September with Michèle and Guy in the Côtes d’Armor, Brittany.
We had three beautiful experiences that were pleasantly prepared by both sides: phone calls and emails beforehand.
Our friends from Mayenne and Brittany waited for us to welcome us and present us their house, their garden and to really get to know each other. It was a good moment of sharing where we really understood how each one lives in his house, what he expects from you and how he plans to live his vacations in your home.
In Champagne, no physical meeting, but we phoned each other regularly and everything was well planned, for both families.
We have been exchanging our home with Intervac families for 15 years, both internationally and in France, and we have always been delighted with our vacations and have always found our home as we left it.
I think that doing home exchanges is a way to live our vacations differently. It’s also thinking about the person who will come to our house, that they feel good. Our house is not a palace, but we love it, it is a beautiful old lady of 135 years where it is good to live … also during the vacations, for friends with whom we will also spend a good vacation!
