A wonderful exchange. ! We had a very nice swap with Peter’s family in the Easter holidays 2015. Their lovely relaxing house is very nice and a fantastic base for explore Bruges. We had a great fun enjoying the historic centre which is very close by (only 15/ minutes walk). The town are full of beautiful sites and activities. So much to do in the immediate area that we hardly left the city. The house has everything you could possibly need We really liked their comfortable home with a pretty city garden (with swings and so on for the kids). It is a practical home, very suitable for families. There is plenty of space to use if the weather isn't perfect . We would recommend this exchange to anyone looking to explore Bruges and the surrounding area. There are lots of pretty towns and canal rides to explore and the family is very warm and friendly. There were plenty of leaflets and information left for us and the neighbours (family) were very nice and helpful. We tried a number of the food recommendations. As usual with swaps we found enjoy sampling how other people live and seeing what we can learn from our experiences. Recommended !! . They left their home clean and tidy and welcoming for us and also left our house in a very good condition. Recommend !!

What we said about Nat's house:

We had a wonderful weekend in Nathalie's beautiful house. It is very well located, close to beautiful forests and at the same time on a 10 minutes drive from the beautiful city of Liège. Very friendly contact, and so respectful to our house. To be recommended!

We really enjoyed our exchange with the Cornelis family. Brugge is an amazing town, and their townhouse is perfectly located for cycling around and seeing all of the sights. The townhouse is beautiful, big, and very comfortable. Our family had a great time, definitely recommended!

We had a short but very nice exchange with Peter & Liesbeth in Bruges. Their house is very spacious and renovated with taste. The kids loved playing in the garden and searching for the hidden treasures :-) In the meantime we enjoyed a sunny sunday morning reading at the comfy kitchen table. Of course we also visited the nice city center of Bruges. Thanks to the family bikes and some great tips from Peter, we managed to see lots of interesting things during the short time of our stay. We really couldn't imagine a better way to finish our easter holidays. Thanks for another successful exchange!

What we said about Lies Luk Noor en Lotta's house:

This was our shortest home exchange ever (a one night weekend trip) but such a succes... ! The house of Luk and Lies is perfectly renovated and shows a good taste of interior design. It's located in the city center, we visited the city just walking. We met Luk & Lies at our place in Brugge, they are an easygoing and very experienced exchange family. Thanks again for your warm welcome and good luck with your future adventures! Peter & Liesbeth

What we said about Sophie's Happy family 's house:

We had a great time in the beautiful house of Sophie and Hervé. We met them at our place and immidiately felt the good vibes! Their house is very big and full of beautiful artwork. The loft is the perfect place to chill in front of the fireplace, the main building is perfectly accomodated for cooking, playing, music and computer games. We really had to convince our children to come with us and visit the beautiful Paris... :) Paris is at 15 minutes by RER, and the house is in a really quiet and friendly neighbourhood. As we love to travel at a low pace and enjoy the rithm of the locals, we asked for some good restaurants in the area... we got very good advise from Hervé! They left our house in a perfect condition. Respect! Always welcome back in Bruges. Peter&Liesbeth&kids

We had a great time at the beautiful medieval city of Brugge. The lovely old house of Peter and Liesbeth is in walking distance to the city center so we often enjoyed an evening stroll along the lively streets and romantic canals. Nevertheless, the house offers all benefits of a family home including garden, trampoline and guinea pigs! We cycled a lot with the family bikes but also often drove to one of the wide beaches along the North Sea Coast. It only takes between 15 to 30 minutes to reach there by car which makes Brugge an ideal spot for summer holidays with kids! Communication with Peter and his family was easy going and very helpful. We can only recommend this destination as we truly spent wonderful holidays there!

What we said about Katja & family's house:

We had a lovely two weeks holiday in Wedel! A surprising destination, with lots of interesting activities in the neighbourhood: Hamburg city life, beautiful Elbe beaches (we love the beach club, swimming with huge container ships passing by!), endless biking tracks, beautiful Hansa cities around Hamburg, ... Communication with Katja&family was very easygoing, their house is charming and very close to the beach, we used their bike facilities every day, ... Worth a recommendation!
