Audrey Guillaume et les enfants from Paris said

We had a wonderful Christmas/New Year's holiday at Roger and Vanessa's lovely house in the Friesenberg Area of Zurich. The house was just perfect for our 2 young children (3 and 5) who adopted immediatly the first floor's bedrooms. Zurich city and surrounding was very relaxing. Although we couldn't swim in the lake because it was winter ;_) we enjoyed plenty of attractions (wild life park , Rhine falls , luge at Rigi just 30 minutes away from Zurich...) and appreciated the relaxing christmas atmosphere of Zurich. We were also greatful upon our return home to find our house just as we'd left it a week earlier We recommend this family for an exchange.

What we said about Audrey Guillaume et les enfants's house:

We had a wonderful Christmas/New Year's holiday at Guillaume and Audrey's lovely flat just off Canal St Martin. We found it to be a perfect location for exploring Paris. 3 métro stations are within walking distance. We only had to change once to head for the Disneyland which was very convenient. There are also good boulangeries around the corner and a couple of restaurants. When chased by cool winds, we happily returned to the cosy flat, where our children would take advantage of all the "new" toys. We were also greatful upon our return home to find our house just as we'd left it a week earlier. He recommend this family for an exchange.

Sigi and Murray from Munich, Germany said

We had a wonderful long Easter weekend at Vanessa's and Roger's house in Zurich. We really enjoyed staying in their cosy and beautiful home that looks exactly like it is shown on the pictures. The area they live in is a haven for families with children. Friesenberg is very central (only two stops away from the central station) but it feels like living in the countryside. The house is surrounded by gardens with fruit trees, tree houses and flowers. Only two streets away there is a big community centre with a really good adventure playground, farm animals and a cafe. Vanessa had emailed us a list of recommended places to go and visit or eat out. This list was very helpful and it made us look forward to our first home exchange even more. Although Vanessa and Roger were complete strangers they made us feel like friends. Upon our arrival our home was clean and tidy. Thank you for an excellent experience and for making us feel welcome and at home.

What we said about Sigi and Murray's house:

We spent Easter in Munich at Sigi and Murray's superb apartment. And we couldn't have wished for a better exchange premiere! The flat looks exactly as described and like you can see it on the pictures. The "Glockenbachquartier" is a charming neighbourhood with little shops, bakeries, restaurants and a large playground all at hand. One can reach the Sendlinger Tor, where the pedestrian area starts, in about ten minutes walk. We also took advantage of the family's bikes cycling along the river Isar (only two blocks away) to the zoo. Upon our arrival back home, our house was clean and tidy just like we'd left it. Thanks for a great long weekend!

Hemos disfrutado de dos semanas estupendas en la casa de Vanessa y Roger en Zurich. La casa es muy acogedora y está idealmente situada para hacer excursiones y recorrer la preciosa Suiza. Nos facilitaron mucha información sobre las excursiones y lugares que podíamos visitar así como para comprar, comer, etc. Ha sido un verdadero placer intercambiar nuestro apartamento con ellos y poder conocerlos personalmente. Sinceramente los recomendamos para intercambios!!! We enjoyed two amazing weeks at the home of Vanessa and Roger in Zurich. The house is very cozy and is ideally situated for excursions and explore the beautiful Switzerland (only 10 min. away from Zurich’s central railway station). They provide lots of information on tours and places we could visit and to shop, eat, etc.. It was a real pleasure to exchange our apartment with them and to know them personally. I sincerely recommend them for exchanges!

What we said about Lauras and Jose's house:

We had a great time staying at Laura's and Jose's appartment for two weeks in August 2013. The appartment is beautifully furnished and very well maintained, with great views out to the Mediterranean from the balcony. In fact, one's only a stonethrow away from the beach and the sea... Laura and Jose were perfect hosts rather than exchangers "only"! The contact with them was very pleasant from the beginning on, and we even got the opportunity to meet each other for dinner on the last day. We highly recommand them for exchanging!

We had an excellent stay ; all arrangements were made easily and our welcome at the house was marvellous. Vanessa's house is very comfortable and is near to Central Zurich whilst being in a quiet area . Cynthia and Graham

What we said about cynthia's house:

Cynthia’s and Graham’s flat is conveniently located in the lovely neighbourhood Brook Green, in fact only a step from the green itself. We enjoyed a week in October 2014 visiting the many sights of London as well as experiencing the local amenities. In 5-10 minutes walking time you’ll find an excellent gastro pub, a nice fish & chips place, supermarkets, etc. Numerous bus routes take you directly to Trafalgar Square via Kensington High Street and Hyde Park or Notting Hill and Oxford Circus. Tube stations are also nearby. The contact with Cynthia and Graham was smooth and very friendly, and we recommend them for exchanging. *************** Die Wohnung von Cynthia und Graham liegt in der schönen Gegend Brook Green, in einer Seitenstrasse des kleinen Parks. Wir haben im Oktober 2014 eine schöne Woche in London verbracht, während der wir die zahlreichen Sehenswürdigkeiten ebenso bestaunen konnten wie die lokalen Annehmlichkeiten. In 5-10 Gehminuten befinden sich ein ausgezeichnetes Gastro-Pub, ein toller Fish & Chips-Laden, Supermärkte, etc. Zahlreiche Buslinien verkehren direkt zum Trafalgar Square, nach Notting Hill und zum Oxford Circus. U-Bahnstationen gibt es ebenfalls in der Nähe. Unser Kontakt mit Cynthia und Graham war angenehm und sehr freundlich, so dass wir sie gerne für einen Haustausch empfehlen.

Grazia from Italy said

We spent a wonderful week, visiting Zurich and the surrounding area in October 2014. Besides the many interesting and beautiful things we saw, we enjoyed the climate, which was still mild beside the lakes. The terraced house with garden was in a very pleasant and quiet area, but very close to the city centre. Vanessa and Roger were very helpful during the organization of our holiday and we really felt at home. We met them at our place in Welschnofen and they are really pleasant people. Their two daughters are lovely and very well brought up. This exchange has been a real success. Grazia and Franco
