We think the best value of Home Exchange is making new friends all around new world and we are interested in learning as much as possible about the country we'll be going to visit.
We appreciate doing exchange with people that have same feelings.
We like to host singles or couples too - as we did twice, with a lot of pleasure
Un bell'appartamento in una zona assai ben servita, silenzioso e luminoso. Gli amici sono persone molto simpatiche, ed è stato uno scambio molto ben riuscito Anna e Marco
Una posizione eccezzionale per scoprire Firenze, i suoi tesori, i suoi vicoli e la sua gente. L'appartamento, fra piazza del Duomo, il Bargello e Palazzo Vecchio è nel cuore di Firenze. L'appartamento è piccolino, ma ha tutto quello che serve per una piacevole permanenza. Le rampe di scale sono tante, ma la vista che si gode sulla cupola del Duomo e sui tetti è impagabile. Siamo stati bene, così bene che ci torneremo. Stefano, Giuliana, Irene, Arianna An extraordinary location for a pleasant discovery of Florence, it's treasures, the narrow streets, the people. In the real hearth of Florence among "piazza del Duomo", the "Bargello" and "Palazzo Vecchio". The apartment is little, but it contains all you need for an agreeable stay. The steps are so many, but the seesight you have from the top on the cupola of the Dome and on the roofs is priceless. We have been so well we will soon return. Stefano, Giuliana, Irene, Arianna
We spent a fantastic week this winter in this beautiful flat in Milano with my children. The apartment is very large, very well maintained and offers fantastic view across the city. No noise, close to metro (not far from the center) and a bustling neighborhood market. We still enjoyed playing the piano in the flat, buy delicious Italian specialties, eating ice cream in winter and spend days in museums. Milan is not Rome or Florence, but go there! Contemporary culture is everywhere, the charm and design also. Xavier and the kids.
We appreciated the hospitality of Xavier and his so nice house. Relaxing in his comfortable house with the stanning view on the Alps has been such a pleasure. Monthey is close to so many attractions (wonderful castles - Chillon, Aigle, Gruyere,....) , for skiers and not skiers. Skiers you have so many chances to get fun and enjoy!! Free Train Connection to Champery (purchasing the skipass at the train station) to get on Swiss+France "The Portes du Soleil" ski area is excellent. Reaching "Les Diablerets" ski area (mainly the Glacier 3000) is easier and faster by car then the train and worth it, either for non skiers! From the top you have an extraordinary view on the main swiss 4000mt top peaks ever !! Xavier, get ready, we'll do again an exchange soon or later ;-)
This exchange was the most amazing one that we have ever had!The house is very clean ,spacious and tidy.You can find everything you need at home and it makes you feel you’re at your own home There is no need to say the perfect location.Not only the city byself Milano but also the surroundings…You are just a step away from the magnificient Lake Como and it’s beautiful towns like Menaggio,Bellagio or Varenna … On the eastern part you can reach the beautiful city of Romeo& Juliet ; Verona and also by 2 hours drive you can relax on the shores of magical Portofino while drinking a glass of wine... On the other side ;Stefano and Guiliana is very kind and nice people that we thank them so much for their hospitality . We’re lucky that we had some time to spend together and now we think that the best benefit of this exchange is gaining such friends like Stefano and Guiliana ; also 2 daughters İrene and Arianna . We love them . Do not hesitate to make an exchange with them ,satisfaction guaranteed , no any disappointments !
Perhaps the best exchange ever, sure the warmest friends we have met right now. We love Turkey and we love our guest. The apartment is the perfect basis for wandering in Antalya and it's extraordinary surroundings. We visited 5 times Turkey, but we found new things to do and to visit ! Irene and Arianna have been hosted the next year after a travel alone !
