My den: it’s my sanctuary
A large-cute-flat with a sea-view, furnished by Masters of art-works, in the Southern France (Provence), in the City of Matisse : Vence, near Nice (and the very close city of Chagall : Saint-Paul-de-Vence).
I'd prefer a reciprocal-home-exchange (at the same time), next August 2016 (between the 27th of July to the 27th of August).
for information to you, in the past, I was used to swap/exchange my lovely-cute apartment with American or English people, more than 50 times in a couple of years, between 1995 and 2005, with the Intervac-company.
I had never any problems with the persons (couples usually) I exchanged with, and of course, I was a very serious, careful, attentive and clean member, in the flats I lived in, single, as an housekeeper.
May you be interested in swapping our flats in full-confidence, next August 2016 : yours in New-York (Manhattan or around : Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx) and mine in Provence/French Riviera at Vence ?
As you maybe know, Vence - the City of Matisse - is a lovely little town, between Nice and Cannes (about 12 miles by the highway or the bus), at 6 miles from the beaches of Cagnes-sur-Mer ; it's not as busy or as crowded as along the coast, it is more quiet and protected from the crowd of tourists, in the high-season ; it is a natural and residential area, very close from the main resorts (Monaco, Nice, Antibes, Cannes and Grasse), by the motorway (5 miles) or by regular buses, every day.
You can easily rent a electric-car - even for one day - in Vence, and you can park it in the parking space of the residence ; you have all basic amenities in the flat (washing machine, wifi connexion etc.) and in the center-town (all stores for fresh food, cultural center, museum… even one big supermarket, five minutes away on foot).
My appartement is quite large for 2 persons, about 90-square-meters, 5 rooms : two kitchens (inside the flat and on the terrace), one large bedroom, one living-room, one big dining-room, and a long bathroom ; masters-of-art-design fully furnished (Le Corbusier, Eileen Grey, Bauhaus style, Tolix industrial furniture), and easy to clean.
You have a wonderful large terrace on the side (with an adjacent second kitchen with wash-dishes, ovens etc.), overlooking the nature and the Mediterranean-Sea (from Cagnes sur Mer on the East to Cap d’Antibes to the West) ; you have the sea view from all the windows in the flat : bedroom, kitchen, bathroom ; the living room is overlooking the old historic walls, of the medieval-city ; you can see that on the pictures I send you in attached-files.
You are in the absolute-center of the City, near the cathedral and the museum, in a semi-pedestrian-area, very calm, noiseless, above all in the South part of the flat (the bedroom is absolutely quiet.)
I have no pets to take care, but if you have one in your flat, I am able to keep it carefully, because I had domestic-animals in my family in the past…
The Nice-International-Airport is at 15 miles ; you can go there by bus or by cab of course ; in Summer-time, there is an every-day direct flight from JFK Airport in New York to Nice (Delta-Air France).
