We had a great time in Barcelona during Christmas and New Year's Eve. Barcelona has a lot to offer, is a lively and welcoming city, full of life but also of opportunities to relax. Xavi's home is conveniently located in a nearby village, very close to the train station. For us it was the ideal location. During the day we could easily reach downtown Barcelona, and in the evening we could get back to the quietness of San Joan Despi. Everything went smoothly with Xavi and his lovely family: we quickly found an agreement, and they really went at great lenght to make us feel welcome at their place. Needless to add, at our return we found our place clean and ready for us. An exchange that we strongly recommend!
Our second exchange was last Christmas in Firenze, at Massimo & Lisa's house and we had a very nice experience there. Their home is really pleasant, decorated with taste, full of books, and you can breathe art and culture everywhere. They prepared everything for us to make sure we felt confortable. The neighbourhood is quiet, far from tourists, but close to the city center (20 min walking) and you can find all you can need just walking a few minutes. Our relation and contact was very easy, we talked often to help each other to prepare our travel. Even we met for a short time, and we could discover a nice family, friendly and warm. If you are doubting if going or not at their place... do not doubt! Great family, nice house, wonderful city!!
This home was perfect for our trip to Bretagne. We spend a very good time in their very beautiful house. Everything is modern and spacious! The little and quiet village is idealy located to visit all the region, near the highway that will take tou everywhere. You can go to the beach, enjoy great landscapes, visit fantastic villages, or play tennis in a free space in front of the house. And of course, Johan and Guylaine took great care of our own house. Don't doubt to exchange your home with them!
We had a great time at the home of the Brichs family. The appartment is comfortable and has a very large terras where you can relax, and it is one level right above the swimming pool so it's easy to keep an eye on the children. Sant Joan Despi is like a small village with a central plaza, church, and a number of small shops at walking distance. The train station is at a 3-4 min walk and there are frequent trains that take you to the center of Barcelona in just 15min. The main motorways are nearby so it's easy to vary between day trips to the city center, to the beaches and to other places nearby. We particularly enjoyed the beaches of Garraf and Sitges. Xavi and Merixtel are very kind and prepared a clear information package for the house and many touristic tips in the Barcelona area. We are very pleased that the Brichs family looked so well after our house. This was our first home exchange and we are looking forward to more exchanges like this one. Thanks! Marc, Hilde and kids
In August 2014 my family exchanged homes with the Ramondt family who live in a beautiful home in Bussum, a nice and peaceful neighborhood twenty minutes from Amsterdam. Their home is ten minutes from the station, so you can reach the city easily, and also is close to the motorways, so you can explore the little villages and the rest of the country. And of course, you can go everywhere by bike! We enjoyed the large garden and also taking care of their two chickens, who were very happy every morning when we fed them up. The communication with Marc and Hilde was fast and easy. And of course, they took excellent care of our house during their 2-‐week stay. Hope all future exchanges can be like this one. Xavi, Meritxell, Arnau & Marta
