Michael from Washington said

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is very well-located, a 20 minute walk to the center of Aix, and in a small and safe area with lots of space. The pool is great to return to at the end of the day, and the Hilverda family is laid back and very easy to deal with. You're a short walk to the grocery store, a short drive to the highways that take you to the rest of Provence and the house has everything you could need for a comfortable stay.

What we said about Michael's house:

The house of the Adlin family is very nice and is verely nicely situated. The contacts between our two families were very good and very easy. The access to Washington D.C. is very straightforward; the house is only 5 minutes walking away from the nearest metro station, from where you go straight into downtown D.C. There is a great bike trail that you can get onto closely by the house and even major shops and restaurants are at walking distance. I had a great time with my teenage daughters in the hous of the Adlin famlily in Chevy Chase.

What we said about Lida's house:

We spent 5 nice days in the summer of 2014 in Lida's house. We had the occasion to meet with Lida and her son in our home, and we were very cordially received by Lida's family in Prague. Lida's house is in a small village outside Prague, very peaceful and calm after busy days visiting touristy Prague! Lida treated our house and belongings with great care, and will do the same with yours, as she did with our house !!

Grit from Berlin said

Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt, die Einrichtung ist schön und die Zimmer haben eine interessante Aufteilung durch die Turmform. Auch außen ist viel Platz zum Relaxen, besonders im Sommer ist es toll den Pool zu haben. Man ist in wenigen Gehminuten im Zentrum vom schönen Aix und kann über die Märkte gehen oder eine der vielen Spuren der Vergangenheit entdecken. Der Kontakt mit Wietse war sehr herzlich!

What we said about Grit's house:

Wir hatten eine ganz tolle Zeit in Berlin. Wir haben eine Superwoche verbracht in der Wohnung von Grit und seine Familie. Wir fühlten uns besonders wohl in der Wohnung. Die Lage ist sehr bequem, und U-Bahn und Fahrrad sind zwei sehr gute und praktische Möglichkeiten um fast überall in Berlin hin zu gehen. Es sind 20 Minuten zur Stadtmitte und uns hat auch z.b. ein Fahrradtour nach Köpenick besonders gefallen. Wir hatten einen sehr guten Kontakt mit Grit.

Steve & Claire from Singapore said

This was our first home exchange and a very positive experience! The home in Aix is perfectly located for a 15 minute walk into town or day-tripping to the nearby Luberon. It is a lovely spacious and family friendly home. The days were hot when we visited and it was great to be able to cool off in the pool. Wietse was a great host and communication was easy. Wietse's family also did a wonderful job in looking after our Condo when they stayed there. Thank you so much!

What we said about Steve & Claire's house:

We had a nice stay in the Singapore home of Steve and his family, in July 2013. The appartment is comfortable, and very, very quiet. We enjoyed the appartment, its immediate calm surroundings and the condo swimming pool at a few minutes' walk from Steve's home. We had a very good and easy-going communication with Steve and they took very well care of our house.
