Maria and Walter from Hietzing said

When flying to Barcelona expecting an overwhelming sightseeing experience you will certainly not be disappointed. On the contrary: it will be more of a fascinating breathtaking experience than you counted for. But to combine this with a stay in José and Margarita’s condo in charming Sitges combines the exciting with the charming. You have the best of two worlds: the quiet desayuno (breakfast) every morning while watching the sun rise behind the palm trees over the splash of the morning waves gently lapping onto the sandy beach just a few steps down from the apartment building. Then the breathtaking city to explore (to which a fast RENFE train has taken you in 40 minutes from Sitges) you will, tired from walking the medieval plaster of the barrios and endless miles in museums and churches) well be happy to throw in a day at Sitges, rambling along the lovely port of Sitges with ist bountiful restaurants along the promenade towards the old part of the town with its famous picturesque cathedral towering over the old town. Join the bustle of the people enjoying their time browsing in the boutiques and sipping their drinks (or Bacardis in this hometown of the famous Cuban entrepreneur). But when you return from your sporty walk along the mile long promenade to your cosy home, Margarita’s charming pictures (painted by herself) will let you relive the charm of Sitges views. The home is spacy and comfortable and provides you with everything you need from a home cooked meal to a day on the beach closeby or a splash in the huge pool. And a relaxing quiet night in comfortable beds will get you ready for more adventures. And if you are so lucky to be met by José and Margarita themselves at El Prat, Barcelona’s airport, you will instantly bond with this lovely couple of well informed and organized Cataluñians, who will introduce you to their fascinating and grand culture and history. And if your exchange is not simultaneous then you can look forward to hosting them in your own home and you will spend some very enlightened talks with them, share many a laugh and find them full of enthusiasm and interest for what your place has to offer them. You will wish this to be a beginning of a friendship to take you through many future years and hopefully a reunion. Thank you Margarita and José and we wish you many more happy and successful home exchanges! See you again soon! Maria and Walter Vienna

What we said about Maria and Walter's house:

Después de haber hecho el cambio de casa con María y Walter, podemos decir que son unas persones excepcionales en todos los sentidos. Abren las puertas de su casa y también de su corazón. Viena es una ciudad romántica y encantadora, pero sin dudas, lo más interesante de Viena son María y Walter. Su apartamento es acogedor, con todo lo suficiente para que te encuentres como en casa. Gracias por todo. Our exchange with Walter and Maria was a most positive experience. They are incredible people. They have not only opened the door of their house to us, but also their hearts. Vienna is an absolutely romantic and comfortable („gemuetlich“, as the Vienese say) city, but what we found most interesting about it were Maria and Walter. The apartment is most comfortable and offers everything to make you feel at home. Thank you for everything. Margarita and José, Barcelona Unsere Erfahrung mit Maria und Walter nach das Haus Austausch ist ganz Positiv.

We had a great week in this apartment in Sitges. Just in front of the sea, we loved have breakfast while listening to the waves. Sitges is a very nice town and not far from Barcelona, and if you have children, not far from portaventura. We had the chance to meet Margarita and Jose who are very nice people. We recommand this echange.

We were so lucky to be able to spend a week in Jose and Margarita's apartment in Sitges now in June and the only thing that wasn't perfect was that we couldn't stay there longer. The apartment's situation is perfect, just above this clean and beautiful beach, close to the harbour area with all the nice restaurants and within walking distance to the town's center. Barcelona can easily be reached by train and the trainride is only around 40 min. The pool and garden is also beautiful and very close by. The area is secluded and quiet and to be able to have breakfast on the balcony under the sound of waves lapping on the beach below is wonderful. We had also the pleasure of meeting our hosts on our arrival night and they showed us around and answered all questions we had. Thanks for making our first exchange such a success!

What we said about Lisa & Gusti's house:

This summer we visited Iceland. We were in the comfortable home of Lisa and Gusti. A lovely family who offered us a nice display of products, which appreciated. Lisa and Gusti had left the entire space of the cabinets we feel comfortable. We have been a few days in your beautiful home because we have traveled all over the island (3,300 kms) and Lisa helped me a lot in preparing for the trip. Iceland is wonderful, an impressive sight. But despite the nice things we saw, we only want to return home as comfortable, to enjoy it, walking and cycling in the beautiful park Elliðaárdalur, which is very near the house. We are grateful to Lisa and Gusti and recommend this exchange.
