Aitor Okamika from Ispaster said

Conocíamos Barcelona de antemano, pero en este intercambio con Eva y su familia nos han gustado sobre todo tres cosas (entre otras muchas, claro): 1.- La casa, estupenda con su terraza y su pequeño jardín. Teniendo en cuenta que estamos en una gran ciudad una maravilla de espacio tranquilo, y silencioso a la noche para dormir bien. Muy importante el descanso que te ofrece la casa. 2.- El barrio de Gracia, fuera del bullicio del turismo de masas con sus plazuelas, sus tiendas y sus pequeñas calles. Y restaurantes dignos a muy buen precio. Una sorpresa. 3.- La cercanía al parque Guell y el disfrute del mismo fuera de los horarios masificados. Una gozada levantarte temprano y ver amanecer sobre la ciudad. Un breve resumen para, sin dudar, recomendar esta casa. Y por supuesto el trato con Eva y Victor perfecto, amables y simpáticos, atentos a nuestras necesidades. Desde aquí les doy las gracias. Vraiment très bien l'èchange avec la famille d'Eva et Victor: sa maison avec le terrasse et le petit jardin, s'amabilitè et sympathie, Gracia le district (les places, les petits rues, hors du tourisme du rest de Barcelona, les bons restaurants à bon prix) près du park Guell (deux minutes), tout très, très bon. Merci à eux pour l'èchange.

What we said about Aitor Okamika's house:

We spent Easter holiday in Aitor's lovely house in Ispaster while they were staying at our place in Barcelona and it was a great experience. It was a fantastic place to stay with the kids, cozy, comfortable and with lots of toys. A real traditional Basque village house! The kids could leave the house and walk on their own to the park, which they loved! The village and sorroundings are very nice: the Ogella beach and the Otoio peak offered beautiful paths for walking or running. Is was a peaceful holiday, with the green fields and mountains ending in the Cantabric sea. We did a number of hikes nearby in painted Oma forest and Bolibar and visited many nearby villages and beaches. We drove to Donostia for a one-day visit and the kids loved Monte Igueldo. We can only thank Aitor for making us feel so much at home, providing lots of information on the house and surroundings. We really recommend this exchange!

Patrick et Cécile from Toulouse said

Notre échange avec la maison d'Eva était parfait. Les recommandations pour notre arrivée étaient très claires. La présence d'un garage et la proximité avec le métro sont très appréciables, on arrive très vite sur tous les sites touristiques. La maison est très calme, très bien rangée, très propre et très confortable. Le jardin est un havre de paix, on s'y sent très bien après une journée de visites. Nous connaissions déjà Barcelone mais c'est toujours un plaisir d'y retourner. Il y a toujours des nouvelles choses à voir (Hopital Santa Creu, la Sagrada Familia est un bijou!!). nous reviendrons avec plaisir chez Eva et Victor

What we said about Patrick et Cécile's house:

We exchanged with Cécile and her family and we totally recommend it. They have a beautiful large house with a big garden that the kids enjoyed very much. The house is beatifully decorated with large spaces where you really feel at home. Toulouse is a wonderful city, which you can easily walk. The Museum of natural history has been renewed and it's great for kids. Also the Jardin des Plantes, the Canal du Midi (we did a boat trip), or simply walking around in the city centre streets. We will come back again to Toulouse!

We recently stayed at the home of Eva and Victor in Barcelona. It is a wonderful location for exploring this magnificent city. The metro and bus stops were a short walk away meaning you could easily explore all the amazing sights. Parc Guell is next door and a delightful place to stroll and take in the breathtaking views of the city. Supermarket and bakery, shops and restaurants all within walking distance also. Eva and Victor were wonderful hosts. They had left lots of very useful information and tips to make our stay even more enjoyable. Their home is the perfect place to enjoy the city of Barcelona. Highly recommended!

What we said about Stephen and Dee's house:

We spent a lovely holiday at Stephen and Dee's home. The house is beautiful, large and full of light in a peaceful location. Our 3 daughters were delighted by the playing room and really enjoyed taking care of Puisin, the cat. The region has a lot to offer, with many recomendable day trips: Connemara, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, Ashford Castle, etc. People are nice and food is good! Stephen and Dee are so kind and attentive, they had so many nice details with us. It was a pleasure to chat with them in Barcelona over breakfast. They took great care of our place. We are really lucky to have exchanged homes with them!
