Caterina from Isca Sullo Ionio said

It was our first experience of home exchange and, of course, we have had many doubts and fears, but from the first email with Martin Schneider we realized that it would be a positive experience. And so it was indeed ... ... ... We spent ,in the home of Monika and Martin in Freienstein, fifteen days of fun and relaxing vacation, living in a big beautiful house and cared even the smallest details; the landscape around is Switzerland's dream : grass, greenery, houses with sloping roof, cows and.... rows of grapevines ! We have received from Martin and Monika all the help we needed: their eldest son accompanied us from the station to the house and remained with us a whole morning, their neighbors were very kind to us. Fundamental to the success of our holiday in Switzerland were their suggestions for transport and tourism. We have traveled the length and breadth of Switzerland by their train - absolutely perfect- by the boats and buses and we have entered in all the museums using the precious "Swiss travel pass." We have shared with the couple Schneider, for a day and a half, their home since they have returned before us and this has allowed us to better appreciate their hospitality and their kindness. We can say that we have met some great people, an excellent family and we have two more friends now ! There seems little?! Franco and I certainly want to repeat the experience of home exchange for the next years: a really different way to travel and learn about the world. We believe that the home exchange can contribute to the growth of brotherhood and world peace. Caterina e Franco Bertucci Isca Marina-Calabria-Italia

What we said about Caterina's house:

Outstanding, great, lovely, relaxing experience for our home exchange for July/August 2011. Here the story in some details: First we contacted each others via email, skype and telephone in April May 2011 . By end of May we confirmed and made flight booking and emailed this confirmation to each others. This to confirm our actions. Two week prior our exchange more calls and emails on little details in our each houses were needed. On the day of echange we met shortly for 10 minutes in Milan, where we Monika and Martin traveled further to southern Italy to Isca di Mare and Caterina and Franco to Zurich region, Switzerland. At the airport at night in Italy we were warmly welcomed by the nephew at the airport and he brought us to our new home. It would be difficult to find the place at night. We enjoyed the stay so much and whenever needed we where pampered by family members in case of questions etc. Also we exchanged happy sms with our exchange partners at home and enjoyed, that they like our Swiss home too. At the end we came home to Switzerland before our party left and so we enjoyed to meet each other for two days. We will do it again. It was terrific and relaxing to make holidays via home exchange. Martin and Monika Zurich, Switzerland in August 2011
