Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Paris - 3h by motorways

 The most western "département" in Normandy, "la Manche" is an area of great variety and surprising landscapes. The protected coastline over 300kms in length offers alternatively capes, havens, harbours and long sandy beaches, and of course the mecca of international tourism : the Mont Saint-Michel, very easy to reach from home by motorway. It's also the land of D.Day beaches, castles, gothic cathedrals, botanic gardens, varied museums and great hiking. All these landscapes are easy to reach from home : beach ( safe swimming ) 25kms, Mt St Michel 65kms, DDay area 45kms.......

We are Gilles and Elisabeth, in our sixties with two grown up sons who live in Paris and New York. Gilles is retired as a teacher in a high school, Elisabeth as a social manager for the regional council.
We have a cat named Kiitos, he has his own catdoors and only needs some biscuits in his automatic feeder. He can stay alone a few days. A gardener takes care of the garden.
We are looking for an exchange in US East, our son and his wife are living in NY on Long Island and we would like to be able to visit them.
We would like also going to Florence and to Iceland.
We done a lot of swaps, always with a great pleasure, we are easy going and adaptable people.
