Who we are

  1. I am a French film maker, married to a Belgian choreographer.
    We are in our mid-fourties and mid-thirties.
    I have a PHD on Spanish Literature from the Paris Sorbonne and graduated in Film at the Madrid University.
    Chantal lived 5 years in NYC, working at the Merce Cunningham Dance Studio.
    We travel a lot for our work, especially New York, Germany and Spain.
    We have a cat we love. She is very at ease in the house and in the garden (and in the neighbours' gardens, too!)
    I was formerly a Homelink member, so I'm used to home exchanges and enjoy them. In fact, many of the Homelink exchangers became friends of ours.
