Our home

A beautifully light and spacious one to two bedroom loft apartment on the second floor of a stylish warehouse-converted period building in a quiet street in vibrant central Clerkenwell at the southern end of the north London borough of Islington (maximum 10 minutes' walk to nearest tube stations Farringdon or Barbican; 2 minutes' walk to bus stops to all parts of London). In addition to being centrally located, the apartment is very quiet and relaxing. Totalling approximately 92 square metres, it comprises a large (approximately 7 x 7 sq. metres) south-facing main living room equipped with comfortable sofas, a dining table seating 6-8 people, a 40 inch TV, a DVD and stereo equipment; fully-fitted kitchen area (behind a glass wall) with all the appliances and equipment including a washing/drying machine, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, cooker, microwave, etc; a double bedroom with new kingsize (160 x 200) bed and memory foam mattress; study area/second bedroom, containing a new sofa easily convertible into a comfortable full-sized double sofabed (140 x 200) for one or two further adults or one teenager over 12 years old; and a newly-refurbished state-of-the-art bathroom including WC, washbasin, bath and separate walk-in shower. Wifi internet access is available throughout. The apartment is best suited for one or two people using the kingsize bed in the main bedroom, and a further one person (adult or teenager) or a couple sharing the sofabed in the study/2nd room. (The sofabed area is not suitable for two children sharing.)

The small block of 12 apartments is well-secured via the communal entrance and via the individual entrance to the apartment itself. The communal areas are well maintained and there is a lift as well as stairs. There is a gym in the basement of the block (for which extra payment has to be paid direct to them for use). A newly-refurbished public swimming pool and spa is within 5 minutes’ walking distance.

Who we are

  1. I am a retired woman, having been a university administrative manager (at the University of London), now seeking to take advantage of my freedom and travel more, sometimes with my partner (he is a university academic and still working full-time, but he does not live in this apartment). I am especially interested in exchanging with French people, as I am keen to improve my French and knowledge of France (having a first degree in French). I am also interested in considering offers to exchange with anywhere in the world. My interests are travel, theatre, opera, classical and world music, art, hiking, political studies (in which I have a doctorate) and good food and wine. I have lived in this apartment since 2001 and have a good working knowledge of London, being able to recommend many interesting things for you to do and places to go for your entertainment while you are here. I have now happily exchanged about 20 times.
