We stayed at David and Lorella's place in Venice during the Venice carnival in February. They were very quick in responding to our enquiry and agreeing the details, and as they were visiting London another weekend, they even stopped by to say hi. The flat is beautiful, very spacious, we also had access to a computer and broadband. David left all instructions including good places to eat in the area which we gladly sampled. David was extremely kind in leaving everything organised including offerring to buy groceries for us in advance. The cats are fantastic, you have to be careful sitting on the chair in the living room as one of them loves to wrap himself under the cover. David arranged for their cleaner to come and clean after our stay so it was extremely convenient. Their flat is located a short walk from everywhere you want to see and do in Venice, as Venice is very compact anyway. We appreciated having the detailed instructions of how to get home from the airport as it is not exactly intuitive. Sounds like David and Lorella equally enjoyed our place in London and we were all delighted with this exchange - it was our first, in fact. Maja and Rainer
We had a wonderful time in Venice in Lorella and David's apartment. It is ideally situated near Arsenale vaporetto stop and yet in a quiet dead-end street. Beautiful view on the roofs and church towers. Very comfortable apartment recently refurbished. Lots of CDs and books in English and Italian. Very near is via Garibaldi where we did all our shopping (fresh fish, greengrocers on a barge etc..), and had great ice cream and Spritz ! We did not eat out at all because there is everything you need in the kitchen to do your own cooking, and it was so restful being at home. David is very helpful and organised, he will answer your e-mails immediately and give you all the advice you need about Venice. Thank you !
We had a great stay at Florence's roomy apartment in Montpellier, which is very comfortably furnished with a well equipped kitchen. She also left us plenty of supplies in the fridge for our arrival after shop closing time, which was very helpful. The outdoor garden area was much appreciated - we spent all our evenings there when home. Excellent. The apartment is close to a stop on the city's amazing tram system and you can be in the centre in less than fifteen minutes. All in all a great exchange!
