A great home exchange with Stefan, Lida and their children! ...

Sophie said

A great home exchange with Stefan, Lida and their children! Their house is very cozy, very well located in Egmond, you can do everything by foot! The area is very pretty and Amsterdam and Alkmaar are really worth! We are very happy with this home swap and we keep very good memories! Thank you!

What we said about Sophie's house:

We had a great swap with Christophe, Sophie and Lise in Pleasance du Touch (Toulouse). The house was very nice, we had a beautiful garden and we visited nice places: Toulouse (airbus),Toulouse city, Carcassone and other places. Our kids played football 5 minutes walking from the house in a park, we also picknicked there and there were a lot of children to play with. The supermarkets and bakery where in the neigbourhood. Thank you for the stay in your house Sohie and Christophe!

If you love the sea you should make an exchange ...

The Kegler Family
The Kegler Family from The Netherlands said

If you love the sea you should make an exchange with this couple. You'll find out that this house really stands at the right place! We had a wonderful time in Egmond aan Zee and felt as at home immediately. Our son loved going to the beach (for kite flying or finding shells) while our daughter enjoyed the shopping centres nearby. Haarlem and Alkmaar both are very beautiful and worthwhile a visit (as well as Amsterdam ofcourse ;-)). Anyway, this was another good memory for us and we are sure it will be for you too!

Per and Lina
Per and Lina from Brämaregården said

The whole family very much enjoyed our first Home Exchange in Stefan & Lidas home! It was less than 5 minutes to the wide sandy beach (and we had great weather!), and all the shops and restaurants were literally just behind the house. So it was very convenient ! We borrowed their bicycles and went all around the town. Amsterdam was easy to drive into for a day of busy city sight seeing. The house is lovely, our kids loved their children's rooms, and the back yard was great for breakfast outside and for our 1.5 year old to play in without worrying about him escaping.

What we said about Per and Lina's house:

Last summer we had a great swap with Per and Lina.The house was wonderful and very good situated for things to do or see. Gothenburg is a great city to visit with a lot of parks and nice shops. We also had nice weather, so we could sit down and relax in the garden. We visited Tjörn, Marsstrand and a lot of beaches and we enjoyed it very much. The children liked the toys, our son was playing a lot with the Lego. Per and Lina , thank you for your hospitality and maybe we see eachother another time.

Isabelle from Le Perreux-sur-Marne said

We had a very nice home swap with Stefan and Linda. Their home is very welcoming and kids friendly. We had a great and sunny week riding bikes, walking and playing on the beach and discovering the area. And Egmond aan Zee is a very nice little town with everything you need!

What we said about Isabelle's house:

We did a swap with Isabelle, Benoit and their 2 kids in may 2012. The house was perfect. Very cosy with a lot of art deco. When we came into their house, we saw that they bought a lot of madeleines and drinks. It was a very nice week. Paris is great and their house is close to the public transport to Paris. We visited also a park with a lot of playgrounds for the kids. Thank you Isabelle, Benoit and kids for this holiday!!! Stefan, Lida, Bernd, Thessa and Matt.

Giséla said

After an enjoying encounter with this nice and friendly family at a lunch in our house in Uden we went to Egmond, along the tulipfields to the sea. We stayed in their cosy house in a little street, very near to the sea an just behind the shopping area of the village. We explored the environment by bike and foot. We have met very big cows with horns, horses and lots of birds during cycling through the dunes. We enjoyed the restaurants and beach clubs in Egmond. We have visited the chees market in Alkmaar and beautiful Haarlem. Family de Ruyter, thank you very much for sharing your house with us!

What we said about Family Bech Nedergaard's house:

Last summer we did a swap with Erik, Marianne and kids in Gjern. The house was beautiful and had a great view in the backyard. We enjoyed Aarhus, Silkeborg and Legoland. We rent a boat in Silkeborg and had a great day. Gjern is a quiet place, but it's central located for great trips in Denmark. Thank you very much for this swap Erik and Mariane!! Stefan, Lida, Bernd, Thessa and Matt.

Living in Lida and Stefan’s house for two weeks ...

Gudrun and Rune
Gudrun and Rune from Norway said

Living in Lida and Stefan’s house for two weeks was a wonderful experience. The house is situated calmly in the middle of the town and at the same time only a few minutes walk to the beach. Their house is a welcoming and bright house, and we enjoyed the back garden as well. (It doesn’t really show at the pictures how nice it is there!) Egmond aan Zee is a cosy and busy town at summer, and it is also a perfect location for going to other cities as Alkmaar and Amsterdam, as we did. It is a shopping town, bathing town, and it is of course good opportunities to get good cheese, beer and other nice things. Lots of cafes and restaurants. We had good contact with Lida and Stefan, and felt really safe to do the exchange. We will absolutely recommend doing exchange with Lida and Stefan AND Egmond aan Zee.

I had an exchange fall 2014 in Egmond aan Zee with Stefan and Lida and their well behave 3 kids . They are a nice and friendly family and their house, it is bigger than you expected, is very cosy. The location is great and within 2 minutes from the beach and when leaving the backyard within 10 meters you reach the main shopping street of the little village..Their house is also a good location to make interesting excursions in the region. When I arrive back in my house it was clean and tidy. Stefan, Lida and the kids, thank you for this exchange and you know you are Always welcome again and we will keep in touch. Tony

What we said about tony's house:

We spend our holiday in Tilburg in the house of Tony. He was very friendly and helpfull. We visit kamp Vught, de Loonse en Drunense duinen, the forest of Chaam, Tilburg, Breda and the castle in Heeswijk. The house had a nice and quiet garden, a beautiful kitchen and tv. The bedrooms are very spacious, the badroom also. You live in a area where it is very easy to make a day trip to Belgium or Germany and off course city trips to Holland. During our stay we had a very pleasant contact with Tony, he's easy to communicate with. Thank you Tony for the nice week!!!
