House in Normandy close to Paris. Looking for an exchange

After Vancouver, Switzerland, the USA and Montreal in the past years, we are now preparing 2021

Gaillon is an excellent base to discover Paris, Normandy and the French Lifestyle!
The house is an old (150 years old) traditional cottage, very typical from Normandy. Summer in Normandy is really beautiful, with nice temperatures to enjoy the different nuances of green that Claude Monet loved so much. Rouen and its cathedral (another Claude Monet's favorite place !) is very close, and Paris is less than an hour.
Our cottage is 200 square meters, with all modern equipments, including wifi if you travel with your laptop or ipad.
The garden is 100% closed, very safe for young children, but also very funny with outdoor Games.
The neighboroud is very quiet, and allows nice siesta under summer sun!
It takes one hour to get to Paris by car or by train, 20 minutes to Giverny (Claude Monet's house and garden), 50 minutes to Versailles, and one hour to Honfleur (everybody should know Honfleur !) or Deauville.
