Who we are

  1. We are a French couple with three children who recently moved to Lisbon. Gabin (13), Marie (10) and Ernest (8) all go to school in Lisbon and play handball, basket and rugby to the local & famous club Belenenses. In the summer they go bodyboard to the beach 15mn by car/train from home as Lisbon is very close from the Atlantic Ocean. We both love to cook, go outside for walks (forest or river!) and spend time with people, so this is why this town is made for us...we've got it all here!!

  2. Vincent works in recent used car sales from home and Adèle used to work in environnement for social housing company. Yet she is taking some time off, which enables her to spend time to the local Botanical Garden to help out there. She plays acoustic piano, as well as Marie & Ernest. We love animals, however Adèle is allergic to cats ... So unless for a short stay with windows open, this unfortunately finds to be a restriction for home exchange...

  3. Our children attend two different school systems, which means hardly any possibility for house exchange during small holidays. So we privilege ONLY WEEKEND EXCHANGE IN PORTUGAL and ONLY SUMMER and XMAS HOLIDAY in lusophone countries and France !

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is within the Lisbon city but not the hyper centre, which has a lot of adventages: you can park the car if you have one, you are in a quiet and restful place. it is residential, yet all our daily shopping is at walking distance from home...important for us French people who like fresh bread in the morning and meat from the local butcher! It's also great for families because our kids can play outside in the quiet streets and by the small park nearby. If you like the buzz of the city there are plenty of bus and tram to get to the city centre, or west to the beach (we live on the right side of the town). Tourist usually spend at least a day in Belém as there is the famous Torre de Belém & Mosterio Geronimos, the pasteis de Belém are cooked 10 mn walk from home and most muséums are there too.

Nightlife in the capital city of Portugal is in the city center, 10-15mn taxi ride, easy....
