3 Bedroom flat in East London - 7 months or longer - Exchange with Montréal only

We are looking for an exchange of at least 7 months (November to July at least) with a house or flat in Montréal. We are a family of 4.

About our flat:
Our sunny (south facing!) flat has 2 double bedrooms and 1 children's bedroom, with a bunk bed (sorry I haven't updated that image yet!), meaning that it fits 6 adults. Our love of design is reflected in our home, but it is also children-friendly/proof.

The modern kitchen is open plan and leads though the living room to a large sunny balcony with lots of plants.

About the location:
We love this area of London.
You will be very conveniently located 5 minutes away from Bethnal Green tube station (central line), taking you to Oxford street in 14 minutes only.
Foodie-favourite Broadway Market and London Fields Park are just 7 minutes away, while the Regent's Canal and its picturesque narrow-boats crosses the end of our leafy road, just before the stunning Victoria Park (4 minutes away) and its lakeside café. A nice stroll along the canal takes you to the Olympic park; Shoreditch, the famous Columbia rd flower market, Hackney city farm and Brick Lane are just down the road. Hackney is a quirky creative area with lots of green areas, small markets, great pubs, restaurants, cafés and independent breweries and it is very family-friendly.

The London Fields lido is an outdoor swimming pool open all year round, and it sits next to a free paddling pool for little ones to cool off in summer.

Victoria Park and London Fields are great for picnics, and the Lea Valley wild life sanctuary is a nice walk along the canal away.

Public bikes can be rented from different spots in the area.

About Me
We are a French family of 4, based in London, UK. I currently teach graphic design at the University of Ravensbourne, and we are planning to move to Montreal this Autumn, where I have a teaching position in a university. We are looking for a swap between London and Montreal for about 7/8 months, but we are open to consider both longer and shorter propositions. We have a 3 bedroom flat in a lively area of London, close to the tube and to great parks and markets.
