My house is a semi-detached house (100m2) near the beautiful city of Arras and the Canadian Memorial of Vimy Ridge in Northern France. It can accommodate 4 adults. On the ground floor, there is the living room and a kitchen. On the first floor there is the master bedroom with a queen-size bed (160/200 cm), a guest room with a bed sofa (140/190 cm), and my study with 1 single bed (90/190 cm). There is of course anything you need in a house : A fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and dryer, TV, computer and WiFi etc...The bathroom is small, but newly renovated. As the summers in northern France are not very hot (mostly 25-27°), I don't have or need air conditioning. For music lovers, I have a piano and a guitar and many CDs.
The house is located in a peacefull neighborhood. When the weather is fine, you can enjoy the garden.
The house is really not suitable for babies or small children. Teenagers are welcome.

I am a high-school teacher and not retired yet, that means I can only travel during the french school vacations. I do not smoke and I shall be very respectful of your property as you will be of mine. Most of the time, I will be travelling with one or two friends, but I can travel alone too. I have been part of 7 exchanges on other websites , all of them wonderful experiences. And I hope very much to have the opportunity of doing a lot more exchanges. Don't hesitate to contact me, even if I didn't write your place as a preferred destination. My best exchanges were with places I didn't think of. I speak french and german fluently and a little english.
