Flat in Fontenay-sous-Bois, Paris, France

Bienvenu! We are interested in an exchange in Iceland, but are open to other destinations. We are proposing both our flat near Paris and a seaside resort house in Normandy, both available at the same time.

We live in a comfortable five-room flat (three bedrooms, a living room and a dining room). with art nouveau/art deco features and period furniture. Our flat is on the first floor of a quiet appartment block in the suburb of Fontenay sous Bois. It is fully equipped. There is a shared courtyard for eating outside.

The flat is very close to all local amenities, and is very near transport into Paris, and it only takes 15 minutes to get right to the centre. There is off-street parking available.

It will also be possible to use a house in Dieppe, Normandy, during the stay. Dieppe is a seaside resort, and the house comfortably sleeps 6. It is within walking distance of the beach and all local amenities. More details on request!

Our Neighbourhood

Fontenay sous Bois is in the immediate suburbs to the east of Paris. We are one minute away from RER line A which conveniently takes you to the heart of Paris in 15 minutes. The Bois de Vincennes (www.boisdevincennes.com/site/index.php3), a huge park, is 200m away. It has loads of activities for children of all ages, and vast wooded areas which are great for cycling or walking. The Parc floral is renowned for its classical and jazz festivals in the summer, as well as being one of the main botanical gardens of Paris (www.parcfloraldeparis.com/parc_floral.html). There is even a castle and race course (Vincennes) with regular meetings all year round. Apart from Paris, Eurodisney is easily accessible from our flat by public transport. The part of Fontenay we live in, called 'le village' has a village-like feel to it, with a main shopping street, pub, and a wide range of restaurants. We have 5 French bakers within a few minutes, and local supermarkets too.
For the other house that you will have access to in Dieppe, see www.dieppe.fr . Dieppe is a popular seaside resort in Normandy, and is the nearest port to Paris. It is approx 2 1/2 hours away by car, and just over 2h from Paris St Lazare by train. Our house overlooks the town, and has a large terrace and garden to relax in.
