Our home

Our home has been recently renovated (summer / fall 2009). Situated on a 5th floor, it has air-conditioninig on every room. It features a spacious dining / living room with a large TV and lots of sunlight, a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a children's bedroom for our two daughters with plenty of children toys and games, a nursery for our baby and a study room where we have a PC and high speed internet. The kitchen is brand new, with a huge fridge, dishwasher, and a washer and a dryer. The building has a swimming pool, a garden and a playground area for children. It has a daytime concierge; he's friendly and very handy with small disrepairs. We also have a cleaning lady that would be able to come for a few hours every weekday without charge, if required. We have a Smart car available (optional) in the basement garage.

Who we are

  1. We are a professional couple in our mid-thirties (more like 40 in Ignasi's case...), currently on a sabbatical. Ignasi has worked in retail banking for 15 years and Paula in private banking for 11. We have 3 small children: Maria (5), Sandra (2) and Xavi (6 months). We love our home and take good care of it. Our daughters are very well behaved and used to travelling. We love to travel, and do so extensively all together. Last summer we all went to San Francisco and loved it! This year we are specifically looking for a home exchange of about a month in Manhattan, but are really open to offers from all over the world. Our dates are quite flexible, but ideally we would prefer from mid-June to end of July.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is in Madrid, on the northern, modern district of Pinar de Chamartín. It is an area where lots of young, well-to-do families live, as it is quiet, very safe and has children parks on almost every corner. It is very close to a Metro station, and has several bus lines that will take you to the city center in a few minutes. On our same building, there's a small but well-stocked supermarket, ideal for doing all your grocery shopping (the fish is particularly good!). Madrid is well-known for the quality of its museums. If you like culture, this is the place to be! It is a very dynamic city, buzzing with activity at any time of the year. Summers are specially interesting, as several cultural festivals take place over the holiday season. The city center features a very diverse nightlife that caters to every taste; this city truly never sleeps! It is also at the very center of Spain, and very well communicated by plane, high-speed train and road to every other city in Spain. It can also be used as a base camp for daytrips to the likes of Segovia, Toledo, Avila, etc...
