as a former brooklyn resident I am always looking to go back for a visit.
We've had two great weeks at Eimear and Michael's house. The house is beautiful and at the same time easy to live in ; there's a great atmosphere in it ! Our kids enjoyed to play in the garden. It's located in a nice and calm neighborhood and yet, you can easily walk to Dublin city center ( we didn't even use the public transport though they are very close from the house). We've found in the house many tourist information, useful city maps and their recommandations for visits or restaurants. We really enjoyed the many great places to visit in Dublin, Trinity College, the museums, the former prison ( a great experience !).. and also had days out, to the beach or to historic places in the country, prehistoric Newgrange, medieval ruins in Glendalough... Eimear and Michael are great exchangers and even found a babysitter for our kids so that we could also enjoy Dublin by night !!! We thank them a lot for the great Dublin experience we've had !!
St. Peray is a little town right in the heart of the French countryside. We have a marvelous 2 weeks there and our exchange family, who are very experienced exchangers, made the whole trip all that much more enjoyable. Upon arrival we found enough maps and guide books and information to keep any visitor busy for weeks! Their home was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed many evenings sitting out in their beautiful garden. There are lots of interesting activities for kids close by and the house was perfect to keep the little ones entertained. The locals were incredibly nice and helpful to us, and coupled with such a fantastic setting, we couldn't have asked for more. Emmanuelle and Djamal treated our home with great care and respect. Thank you !
We discovered Ireland for the first time. The house is very well located for exploring Dublin city, close the Luas station (just few stops to the center). The house's level comfort is great and nothing was forgotten in the house to welcome us. Our host family helped us from the begining of our contacts, for example to look for children summercamps. Our first swap was a great achievement. Thanks again.
