    I am originally from Ireland so this exchange would be primarily to visit family.

    July 20 — August 15, 2015 These dates are flexible

    These dates could be flexible and our preference would be for a larger home, possible five bedrooms, with a swimming pool, so that other family members (my brother or sister and their partners) could also join us. They have participated with us on exchanges before and they are very respectful of exchange homes.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Joanne et Luis. L'appartement, au dernier étage d'un petit immeuble calme, est très confortable et spacieux avec 2 très grandes terrasses décorées de belles plantes exotiques ! parfait pour se reposer après les visites ! Il est très bien équipé (climatisation, ventilateur au plafond) et décoré avec goût. Toutes les commodités sont en bas de l'immeuble (très pratique pour faire quelques courses). Il est bien situé : à la sortie d'une voie rapide (pour visiter les alentours Sitges, Tarragone ou aller à la plage) et à deux minutes de marche du tramway pour regagner le métro et le centre de Barcelone. Joanne est une personne très sympathique, elle a été très disponible tout le long de notre séjour. Elle nous a donné de précieux conseils sur les visites et les balades alentours. Mon Mari, mes enfants et moi-même avons été ravis de notre séjour à Barcelone chez Joanne. Merci à toute la famille !!

Roger from Northern Ireland said

Joanne and Luis could not have been more helpful and easy to exchange with. The apartment is in a fantastic location in a safe and family-friendly suburb of Barcelona. Six metro stops away takes you directly to Camp Nou! The apartment is modern and spacious with terraces giving great views across the city and beyond. We had a fantastic family holiday here!

What we said about Roger's house:

Roger and Deborah's house was a real find. We travel to Northern Ireland a lot, but had never properly visited this part of the country. The house is beautiful, with fabulous decoration (I think Deborah takes the credit for that) and the photos don't do it justice - it's even nicer in reality! The location was fantastic because we had Belfast within 20 minutes drive, and Bangor town even closer, with seaside activities, lot of restaurant options and cultural events. The house itself is very close to the beach of Groomsport, and while we didn't quite get beach weather, it was beautiful to go down there and take a walk along the coastline, enjoying real Irish scenery. There are lots of activities for children in the region, and we had a great time. We enthusiastically recommend it for anyone.
