Gaelle from Ukraine said

The flat in Ricon de la Victoria is great : the huge terrace, private solarium and big swimming pool were just fabulous and we loved it. It is very close to the beach, stores and main roads, so it is easy to go anywhere, yet very quiet. All is very well organised in the flat, so that it is a pleasure to stay. Malaga is very nice in summer, as there is just enough of sun and breeze so that it is not too hot. Francisco and Lourdes are very nice people so the exchange was easy. We loved it and highly recommend it.

Francisco and Lourdes apartment in Rincon de la Victoria is ...

Erik from Östermalm said

Francisco and Lourdes apartment in Rincon de la Victoria is great. It is not spacious, but well planned and tastefully furnished with two really nice terraces. One is located on the top floor with "the sky as roof". We really enjoyed the evenings on the terraces. The pool was nice for windy days and to take a swim in after a day on the beach. Some of the surrounding apartments were vacant, a reminder of the financial crisis in Spain and in the rest of the world, but once we got used to that it gave us more privacy and more space in the pool: ) The location of Rincon de la Victoria is very good, close to many other nice places to visit like Alhambra, Nerja, Sierra Nevada, Marbella, Gibraltar, etc. It´s a very quiet area. When we were there in June/July there were not many tourists, apart from Spanish people, which made it “non-touristic” and a very good opportunity to practice the Spanish language: ) We preferred beaches in Rincon de la Victoria where we went by car. Last but not least, Francisco and Lourdes and their two children were lovely people. A lovely family! They even invited us for lunch (Paella of course!) in our own home when we met in Stockholm briefly. J We can highly recommend an exchange.

What we said about Erik's house:

What a spacious luxury dream flat! It’s superbly located, staying in the city centre was very convenient, you can easily get everywhere in no-time. Katarina, Erik and their sons are great, they took their time to organize everything perfectly in order to welcoming us, so we felt ourselves at home at once. Our charming new friends also provide us good advice on the best places in the city. Summer in Stockholm caused great surprise in us. We had a very great time enjoying the city, the lake, the weather, the light and getting to know Swedish life. I strongly recommend you this exchange we will remember as a wonderful experience.

Alison from Dublin said

We had a fabulous holiday in Rincon de la Victoria Easter 2015. Fransisco and Lourdes' apartment is gorgeous, very comfortable, a lovely living room and the best bit is the two amazing terraces which are furnished as if they were rooms. The apartment was spotlessly clean and greatly located for a fantastic beach. the kids loved it, it was safe. you could rent a bed on the beach for a few euro, There are fabulous restaurants on the beach with fresh fish cooked on a BBQ. And what is nice about Rincon de la Victoria is that it is where the spanish holiday so it feels more authentic than Marbella and costa del sol which is so much more touristy and built up. There is loads to do in the area. Lourdes and Fransisco looked after our house so well. when we came home it was immaculately tidy. I would highly recommend exchanging with Lourdes and her family any time.

What we said about Alison's house:

We had a wonderful time at Emmet and Alison´s house. It was a huge house, very comfortable, with a very nice living-room/dining room/open-kitchen, nice beds and everything very clean. It was amazing for us !!!!!! When we arrived the family was there, everything was prepared and we felt at home straight away. They are very kind people, we received a very warm welcome with lots of information. We loved walking around Dublin but we also loved returning to the warm house and hanging out together in the common area. Our house was perfect when we returned home, and it was clear that the family treated our house with great respect. We would recommend an exchange with their place without hesitation !!!! Definitely a place to go !!!!!
