A marvellous exchange: one week in London in a beautiful cottage near all you want. What else? Heide & Christopher are so kind and their cosy home is located in a very quiet neighbourhood with a bus stop within 2 min walk! We loved this exchange and our (4 years old) son talks about "big ben" every days since one week! We will always remember this exchange. Thank you Heide & Christopher.
Our lovely week at Sylvain and Caroline's house in Normandy was just what we had wished for: a very cozy house in the middle of beautiful countryside. The house sits on the edge of a little hamlet, and looking out of the large windows in the living room, we enjoyed beautiful views across fields and forests - while the wood-fired stove kept the house warm and comfy. We travelled with two small children who loved Tom's toys (and he's got a lot of them!), the large garden with a tree house and the horses grazing in the neighbour's field. Great location also for day trips to pretty towns and the seaside - altogether a truly wonderful exchange!
La maison de Heide et Christopher est charmante, décorée avec goût et simplicité. Elle est très agréable à vivre, idéale avec des enfants. Située dans une impasse, elle est au calme. Heide et Christopher ont tout fait pour qu’on s’y sente bien, ils sont attentionnés et nous ont proposé tout au long de notre séjour des idées de sorties qui collaient à nos envies. Leur maison est idéalement située pour découvrir Kensington et Chelsea. Notting Hill, son marché, ses magasins et restaurants branchés ne sont qu’à 20 min à pied. A 150 m de leur maison, on trouve un petit supermarché et un arrêt de bus qui permet de rejoindre directement Hyde Park, Oxford Street, le British Museum ou le Victoria&Albert Museum. Plusieures aires de jeux sont aussi à proximité immédiate. Londres est à portée de main sans perdre trop de temps dans les transports. Heide et Christopher ont pris grand soin de notre maison et nous les remercions encore pour cet échange absolument parfait, Daphne & Henri
We spent a wonderful 10 days in Daphne and Henri's house in April / May 2014. The house has a very nice designer feel to it, with tasteful furniture and a stunning infinity pool. It is beautifully positioned in green hills with a lovely view over the surrounding hills, and it is only a very short 10-15 minute drive away from the centre of Nimes. Daphne and Henri were absolutely lovely to deal with. When we arrived at the house, there was an amazing home-cooked 3-course meal waiting for us in the fridge. And during our stay, we received a steady flow of emails with even more suggestions for what else we could do during our stay. We also enjoyed the Languedoc-Roussillon region very much and found that it had lots to offer to us as a family with young children - from pony riding in the beautiful countryside to steam train trips in the Cevennes and picnics by the stunning Pont du Gard. When we returned home, we found our home and car very well taken care of. Thank you, Daphne & Henri, for a truly wonderful exchange!
