Exchange Reviews

April - April 2014

We were looking for an exchange in Venice and Irene ...

Joanna & Family from London said

We were looking for an exchange in Venice and Irene offered their home on Lido, just a short boat ride away from the city. We were so glad we stayed here! Venice is of course wonderful, but for us too full of tourists.....Lido was relaxed and charming, such a welcome respite. Irene and her family made us most welcome and their apartment was beautiful and well located, just a ten minute stroll to the vaporetto. As this was their first exchange, Irene really wanted to make sure that everything was ok for us and of course it was! She provided plenty of information and guides which were very helpful and useful. We stayed a week and spent 3 days in Venice. For the other 4, we hired bikes, toured the island and hopped on ferries to explore and discover. A great place to stay for a family, thank you!

What we said about Joanna & Family's house:

The house was simply wonderful! Even more beautiful than in the pictures!(refined furniture, very sunny, quiet neighborhood,...) My kids were mad about the two lovely cats and the trampoline in the very beautiful garden. the tube station is really 5 minutes walk and very near to the most central stations. it was very relaxing staying in this cozy house. all the agreements and contacts with this very nice family went good. The Baumards left us a lot of infos to visit London. They left us even a bottle of wine and chocolate to welcome us. the house was very tidy and clean. our house even was left perfectly by then with gifts too! we are very enthusiastic about this experience and we can warmly reccomend a swap with the Baumards!
