A fantastic exchange. The apartment is beautiful, in a suburb of Alghero. A little too far to walk to town center, but easy to drive most of the way, park the car and then walk. Alghero historic center is lovely. Lots of restaurants, bars, ice-cream parlors, shops. For best Sardinian food (delicious!!!) try an Agriturismo. There are many lovely beaches a short drive from the apartment. Definitely no need to drive for more than 1 hour. The Parodis are a lovely family. The apartment was spotless when we arrived, as was our house when we got back.
It was our first experience of home exchange and it was very good. Baum's home is very cozy. It's located in a nice neighborhood, not very far from city center. The Baums are very helpful: they provided us with detailed information on places to visit and things to do and identified some interesting activities for our children. ... finally you have to taste the excellent plums in the backyard...
We had a wonderful exchange in Sardinia. The apartment was very nice and well situated. We used the bikes to go into Alghero in the evening and used the car to explore the surrounding beaches during the day. The weather was fantastic and while we were worried we would be too hot, the apartment was cool and the sea breeze meant that it was never uncomfortable. There is a lot to see in Sardinia and of course wonderful food! We loved this home exchange and would not hesitate to exchange with Angelo and his family again. They looked after our house very well too.
We had a lovely holiday in Abcoude. Abcoude is a small, quiet town, very close to Amsterdam. The neighbors are very friendly and nice. The house is comfortable and cozy, even for a family with children. It is an excellent starting point to visit Amsterdam and the Netherlands.
What a view!!! Angelo's and Angela's flat has a fantastic view of Capo Caccia and the village of Alghero. We spent two weeks in their home with our 2 girls and had a great stay. Everything was impeccable! From their home, you're less than one km from the sea. Beautiful beaches are everywhere ... you can find a new one every day. Angelo and Angela gave us access to their bikes and we often used them to go to the beach ( there's a beautiful boardwalk with cycling path right along the beach), go to the village, go to the market. They also let us use their car so we were able to visit some other parts of the island of Sardinia. We were fortunate to meet Angelo and his family in Rome and back in Montreal ... they are great people on which you can count. They gave us great advices on what to do and see and our home and cars were in perfect condition when we came back. We strongly recommand this destination if you want to visit Sardinia.
We spent three fantastic weeks at Manon and Francois’ house. The house is really comfortable, with a nice pool that has entertained our little girls (as well as my wife and I). The neighborhood is quiet, the neighbors are very helpful and quick with suggestions and information. Francois and Manon provided us their two excellent cars. We had the pleasure of knowing personally Francois and Manon in Rome; we spent a pleasant dinner with their family. When we came back home, we found our flat in perfect order. If you want to visit Montreal and Quebec we strongly recommend this accommodation.
We had a great vacation in Sardinia. We spent two weeks in Angelo's home, which is very well located, in a quiet area of Alghero, with a beautiful view to the sea and to Capo Caccia rocks from the flat and the terraces. In the mornings we had great breakfast on the terrace, and in the evening we wondered at the sunset above the sea. The home is close to the city center and the sea, only 1-2 km, and it is very comfortable. Our children also liked their room and the games they found. The simultaneous exchange was very well organised with Angelo, everything was perfect. We also exchanged our cars, their car was new, clean and comfortable for travelling to the beaches. During our stay we visited each day different beaches, all of them are quite different with different landscape, ground and colours. Our favourite beaches are: Spaggia della Pelosa, li Cossi, Mugoni and Compultitu and of course the beaches around Isola Budelli and Spargi. We communicated daily and received many good tips for the next days. The old center of Alghero is really beautiful, you can walk there hours in the evenings, have your dinner or just sit there and relax. The weather was very stable, sunny and not too hot, around 32 C all the days in late July, early August. Although the flat is on the 3rd floor, it was not too hot for sleeping as during the night there was always some wind and the air cooled down. We also used their bikes to go for shopping and to see the countryside. Angelo and his family took perfect care of our house, the garden, our car and the cat in Budapest. This exchange was a great experience, highly recommended for exchangers. Thank you. Zsolt, Detti and the kids
