I stayed at Pierre and Marcel's Paris apartment twice, and they are coming to my place in Dublin within a few months.
From the outset, the exchange has been a pleasure, online, via this site to start with, and through our personal inboxes.
They both were extremely welcoming, professional, friendly and practical.
I arrived in Paris to find a lovely, clean, cozy, safe and central apartment. Even though they don't live there full-time, the apartment feels homely, is comfortable, very clean, and definitely has a Paris flair. The apartment is quite large for Paris, the bedroom is very calm and the bathroom is superb.
All in all, this has been a wonderful experience, and I only hope they are as satisfied with my own place as I was with theirs. One place not to miss!

Wonderful apartment! Warm, close to the center, quiet, very comfortable and tastefully furnished. We immediately felt "at home". We stayed for 4 days and were delighted. Pierre was waiting for us. I had already lent him my apartment, to him and to Marcel. We immediately trusted each other. This quality of exchange is very valuable. We hope to be back soon. And Pierre and Marcel are obviously welcome in Lausanne!

Très bel appartement dans immeuble typique du 18e siècle, avec beaucoup de charme (poutres et pierre apparentes).
Idéalement situé entre le marais et la gare de l'Est, à seulement 15 minutes de marche de Beaubourg et à deux pas du Canal St Martin.

La chambre donne sur une cour intérieure, idéal pour dormir dans le calme absolu.

Très belle salle de bain !

Pierre et Marcel sont très charmants.

C'est avec plaisir que nous renouvellerons un échange avec eux.

What a great exchange! This apartment makes you feel like you are a true Parisian the minute you walk in. It is beautiful, tastefully furnished and so Parisian! It really added to the experience. The apartment is ideally located, within walking distance to the best bars and restaurants in Le Marais, the Pompidou Centre, Forum Les Halles, Hotel de Ville, Notre Dam, the river.... you can actually walk almost everywhere. And you have a metro station 3 minutes away if you don't feel like walking too much. Despite being so ideally and centrally located, it is still very quiet so you will get a wonderful rest every night.
I had met Pierre previously, a month earlier, when he stayed in my apartment in Benidorm, and we got on really well and immediately became friends. We had been talking through email and whatsapp for a few months prior to that and communication was always easy, and there was instant mutual trust. This apartment is something special, and I plan to return in the near future. HIGHLY recommended exchange!

How wonderful to find cold beer in the fridge when we arrived on Paris' hottest summer day!

We loved our stay in Pierre and Marcel's Paris apartment. Pierre went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly, and talked to us prior to our visit.

The apartment was very comfortable and had a lovely, quiet bedroom where we could rest after our busy days :) We loved the large living room windows overlooking the front street.

Bus and metro were close by, so it was always easy to get around. We enjoyed the local butcher shops, wine stores, organic grocery shop, and restaurants. We made use of Pierre and Marcel's kitchen, as well.

We swapped for two weeks in June and July, and our Victoria home was left in pristine condition!

Thank you very much.

A very pleasant stay in a most comfortable apartment, quiet, peaceful and beautifully decorated. On one side is a busy road in the full process of "gentrification", with the Chateau d'Eau metro station and a couple of bus routes practically on the doorstep, offering easy access to the Gare du Nord and all parts of the city. But behind the building is a quiet side street like every tourist's imagined Paris, and the surrounding area is chockfull of cafés and restaurants.

I should also say that Pierre went out of his way, at some inconvenience to himself, to sort out my initial confusion over keys and locks - a perfect host!

We have been staying at Pierre's and Marcel's flat in Paris for 10 days after Christmas and the whole stay was a real pleasure.

Their flat is wonderful, located in a typical old parisian building. It is warm, comfortable and very clean. The bedroom is very quiet, on the courtyard side and the large living room is really pleasant, with two large windows on the street side. The bathroom is spacious, with a beautiful italian shower.

Moreover, the flat is perfectly located in a cool and trendy area, full of nice restaurants, cafés and shops. It is very close from three different metro stations, and République, le Marais or Beaubourg are within walking distance.

Pierre and Marcel are really easy going, welcoming and reliable. Our communication via mail or whatsapp was really helpful. They made everything to make our stay enjoyable and our apartment was left in perfect conditions when we came back home.

Thanks again for this wonderful exchange. Marcel and Pierre are welcome back in Nice.

Thanks Pierre and Marcel for a wonderful stay in Paris! The home swap was simple to organise (within a few days we had settled on a date) and we exchanged some additional emails with tips leading up to the holiday. We loved the location of the flat – bustling, vibrant, multi-cultural – and Pierre and Marcel were right when they said that the Rue du Faubourg St Denis is a must see! It’s also very easy to reach the Marais and the classic sights of Paris – either by metro, bus or often we just walked into the center. We enjoyed coming to the welcoming flat to relax and recoup our strength; the bedroom faces to the rear and is very peaceful and the bathroom is brand new. Pierre and Marcel, we look forward to swapping again in the future!
