This was our first house exchange and it was a very enjoyable holiday. The house, which is located in Arenys de Mar, is modern, spacious and really very nice, with a shady garden and it is just 5 mins. drive from the beach. There is an indoor municipal swimming pool at the end of the road, and the centre of town is also just a few minutes drive away. Getting to Arenys was quite straight-forward- just 40 minutes drive from Girona airport, which is a Ryanair destination. We travelled with our 2 young daughters aged 3 and 6 - there is plenty to do for young kids with 2 nice playgrounds nearby. The beaches are lovely. We visited Marineland and http://www.jalpiaventura.com/parc.html a zip wire park which the girls loved. There was a local festival on during our stay in August "Fiesta Sant Roc", with lots of activities on in town- parades (with Giant statues!), music, dancing and there was a great atmosphere- the girls really loved it! From the practical side, we found Arenys de mar easy to get around but I would say that a car is essential (we also exchanged cars). There is a choice of 2 large supermarkets, at the end of the road (just 2 mins. drive from the house). For us, eating out was pretty good value (certainly compared with Ireland!). We found some nice local restaurants with nice tapas, pizzas- all very family-friendly. Our exchange family were really lovely people, very helpful and they also looked after our house very well, for which we were very grateful. So, all-in-all a big "Thumbs up" for a lovely house, good location and most importantly a very helpful and welcoming exchange family.

Arenys a été notre première expérience d'échange de maison ; nous sommes tellement enchantés que nous poursuivrons l'aventure vers une autre destination l'année prochaine ! La maison est très agréable à vivre, confortable, bien équipée et très propre, dans un joli quartier de la ville. Le jardin est magnifique, et nous avons apprécié la fraîcheur sous les pins. Les plages d'Arénys sont en sable (idéal pour les enfants), calmes et l'eau y est très chaude ! La petite ville et ses habitants sont sympathiques, tranquilles. Nous avons également beaucoup apprécié la proximité de Barcelone (trajet rapide en train ou voiture) et la montagne verdoyante qui se situe à quelques km. De plus, cette famille est vraiment très sympathique ; accueil chaleureux (avec une excellente tortilla !), bonnes adresses... Nous avons retrouvé notre maison en excellent état, notre chatte en pleine forme, et le jardin bien arrosé ! Cela a été un merveilleux échange pour nous, et nous recommandons cette famille de confiance à tous ceux qui souhaiteraient découvrir cette belle région.ESPAGNOL Arenys fue nuestra primera experiencia de intercambio de casa; á somos tanto encantados que perseguiremos la aventura hacia otro destino el a

Agosto 2014 La nostra vacanza ad Arenyis de Mar è stata il nostro primo scambio casa ed è stata un esperienza veramente fantastica. La casa è moderna, grande , ben arredata e molto pulita e funzionale. Abbiamo sfruttato molto il giardino sia per le nostre colazioni sia per le cene . La strada è molto tranquilla e ha una bella vista sul mare anche se per andare in spiaggia è bene avere la macchina. Ci sono due supermercati molto vicini e la cittadina di Arenys ha un corso principale dove è possibile trovare negozi vari tra cui anch bar e ristoranti.. Vicino ad Arenys ci sono molte spiagge e la cosa positiva è che la maggior parte sono spiagge libere . Adriano e la sua famiglia sono stati molto carini ed ospitali e ci hanno lasciato moltissime informazioni su Barcellona e tutte le zone da visitare che ci sono state molto utili . Barcellona è veramente molto vicina ed è possibile raggiungerla sia con un treno comodissimo che parte proprio da Arenys.sia in macchina in circa 40 minuti. Abbiamo così avuto l opportinità di andarci spesso. Raccomanderei a tutti questa esperienza per chi vuole fare sia una vacanza culturale sia di relax al mare. Grazie ancora "
