Notre maison

We live in a beautiful and welcoming home 25 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in a suburb of San Francisco, Novato (Marin County).

The house has a very warm and inviting feel and is filled with an eclectic mix of European and American antiques, art and photographs.

One of the two living rooms has a working fireplace and sliding glass doors into an idyllic and quintessentially California garden with a giant palm tree, redwood grove, and many spots for lounging in the sunshine or shade. The other living room has a large lounge area, ideal for teenagers and kids.

The house is full of books and large windows, while the master bedroom is very airy and romantic with its own dreamy bathroom, complete with heated floors and over the top chandelier.

We have Lola, the sweetest, most loving cat you have ever met, and we happen to have the greatest dog in the world, a Mexican rescue dog named El Chapo. Because he requires more attention than most humans, he will be out of the house during exchanges. Saying that, a true dog lover who wants to take care of him would be my ideal exchange partner! Lola comes with the exchange though. We have a beehive but they mind their own business (in the front of the house, not in the back garden)

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. I am a freelance photographer and filmmaker. I've spent ten years living abroad in England, Italy, Scotland and Hong Kong. I moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2002 after living in London for seven years.

    My son, Sacha is 23 and is doing neuroscience research in London, and my lovely daughter, Leila, is 14. I am very politically active (and it goes without saying that I am exceedingly embarrassed by the shameful American president we are currently enduring). I love cycling, hiking, traveling and cooking, and feel very lucky to live in the beautiful Bay Area.

    We have so far had more than twenty wonderful exchanges in England, Italy, Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico, Norway, and France which have resulted in friendships and additional exchanges with the other parties. We usually spend time abroad each summer, and I'm looking for any opportunity to visit my son in London. Plus short weekend breaks locally. Always looking for an adventure to somewhere new and interesting, too.





Our house is north of the Golden Gate Bridge and provides the best of both worlds - the beauty of San Francisco and the quite of Marin...

Novato is, at first glance, a pretty typical American suburb with side by side houses, and a quant little main street. But it is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of California, surrounded by bay on one side, and lush hills on the other.

There are endless hiking and mountain biking trails in the area. It takes half an hour to get to downtown San Francisco by ferry boat from nearby Larkspur (15 minutes away) or about an hour by car ( depending on traffic). My son commuted to school in San Francisco daily. Napa and Sonoma are also both a short drive away. We are halfway between Napa and San Francisco, so you can just as easily go wine tasting and picnicing, as you can explore the city musuems.

The surrounding area is incredibly beautiful, with lush hills, sequoia trees and breathtaking Northern California scenery. We are half an hour from the beautiful coastline and beaches.

Be careful, once you come and visit, you won't want to leave.

While the city of San Francisco is covered in fog between June and September, the sun still shines brightly in Novato.
