Let's go explore!
We are Birre (1982), psychotherapist; Gilles (1973), writer, and Nadim (2011), son and all-round good guy. We love food and cooking, pets, traveling, books, our friends and family and our city of Amsterdam. We have two cats (Lola and Joris) and a dog named Otis. We're crazy about Italy, and Venice in particular, but would love to see where exchanging houses can take us. Open to anything!
We have spent a very good time in Amsterdam. The house was warm and confortable and we felt really at home. We were in downtown Amsterdam but in a small and very quiet street. We have got the good surprise to be there on the king's day and it was really a great experience! There's a lot of open air markets close to the house and it was really pleasant to taste local food...The contact with Gilles and Birre was very good and they have taken good care of our house and animals. I highly recommend this family for further exchanges... Thank you Gilles and Birre!
A wonderful stay in beautiful and tranquil surroundings. Very kind neighbors in the small three house hamlet, who come by for a chat and invite you over for a glass of home made pommeau. The goats, cats and chickens and large lush garden make this an excellent exchange for people traveling with dog and or children. Valerie and family treated our house and cats with the utmost care, and when we came back the place looked as if they were never here. Would definitely advise you approach them for an exchange! Extra special: the farmer's market on fridays in Alencon and the wonderful village of St. Ceneri, just a short walk away. Birre and Gilles
