'In reply to your article in the newsletter about the Olympics next summer, we are indeed looking for a home swap since we have managed to get tickets for some events. We're therefore looking for someone who would like to escape London for the peace and quiet of Etang la Ville - a pretty village just 15 minutes from Versailles, and 24 kilometres west of Paris with excellent train connections into the heart of the city (takes 35 minutes) or drive in which is totally painless during the summer! Our house can accommodate 6 people quite easily and also has a lovely large garden for relaxing after a tiring day's sightseeing.
We are experienced swappers and look forward to hearing from any interested Londoners.'
With many home exchange members in London and nearby, Cathy should have no problem finding members who would be delighted to leave the hustle and bustle of the city and relax in the French countryside during the Olympics. See Cathy's full home swap offer in Etang la Ville, and do contact her if you are interested in a home exchange to rural France next summer (members: log on and view by ID, 23587).
