Enjoy Venice and its sunny beach from within!!
My name is Cecilia, I am 43 and am a consultant in employment law. My husband Andrea, 49, is architect and has personally directed the renovation of this house which we live in during the summer months, and of our main apartment that we live in during the winter season in central Venice.
We have two children: Amelia is 8 yrs old and Guglielmo is 6, they're lovely like all kids. They like to draw, to jump, to sing, to play. They have many toys like wooden bricks, dolls, cars, memo's, they can share with your children.
In our free time we like to read books and magazines and I am a big music lover, while Andrea is a basketball and golf player. We love to spend time with our friends and with our children's friends and we often have them over for dinner. We love to cook and enjoy a glass of good wine with our friends.
We are well educated people with a cultural background and we're very respectful towards other people and their personal possessions.
We treat other homes with highest respect and expect the same from our guests.
As we live in the city, we are particularly keen on country/mountain holidays, where we can enjoy the green of fields and woods and where our eyes and our feet can wander in wide spaces with less houses.
We look for places where our kids can run in the wild and breathe fresh air.
We are interested in discovering regional wines and cheese and if we can even find fresh regional fruits and vegs there's nothing more we ask for.
Very nice house with venizian spirit. Ideally placed near main street with restaurant and near beaches, this house is ideally for holidays. Magnificant "spot" and very good relationship with Cecilia. We appreciate and love our sport and keep a wonderful souvenir of this exchange.
What a dream home! Such an unforgettable holiday, magnificent surroundings, wonderful home, we would never leave there. Fantastic memories.
Nous avons passé une semaine formidable dans une belle maison idéalement placée sur l'île du Lido: la Piazza San Marco est à 10 minutes de Vaporetto. C'est un vrai plaisir de tout faire à pied ou en bateau pour profiter de cette très belle Venise mais aussi des iles environnantes. Un grand souvenir et un grand merci à Cécilia et Andréa pour leur accueil!
Vendée - what a unexpected surprise! The beaches are absolutely magic. The house is greatly located, you can reach the sea without the car. The whole region is full of interesting things to view. The house is comfortable, neighbours are nice, surroundings are breathtaking. Would definitely repeat this swap.
