Hi, we would like to experience the place you live
We are a family of three, Ellen, Frans and our 15 year old son Daniel and our cat Sophie. We like camping, we like the urban experience, we like wining & dining, we like museums. Daniel and Frans like soccer very much and visiting a FC Barcelona match in Camp Nou this summer was a highlight of their Summer Holidays. We are dependent on the school holidays that makes us less flexible unfortunately.
July 16 — August 21, 2015 These dates are flexible
The exchange has to be simultaneous
We like places all 3 of us can enjoy. The ideal is: good food/wine, exciting/beautiful surroundings and stuff 15 year old enjoy
We spent 5 wonderful days in Amsterdam in Ellen, Frans and Daniel' s aparment. The apartment is very well located, close to several tramway lines and thus very convenient to go around in the city. The aparment is very comfortable, with a very nice terrasse at the top which is great to rest after a busy day. We felt very much like at home. There is a large supermarket just at the corner of the street. We have not tried the restaurants close to the house, but Ellen and Frans told us there are some good ones nearby. Ellen and Frans were very nice to accept that my sister and her husband stay with us in their apartment. We were glad to meet the family at the end of our stay.
During the schoolholiday we stayed in Catherine and Vanessas appartment and we had a wonderful time. The neighbourhood is quiet but not boring. Some nice stores with delicious French and Italian food for the daily shopping and of course lots of 'boulangers' for the famous French bread and pastries. Good connection with public transport and nice restaurants at walking distance. Catherine and Vanessa did all their best to make us feel at home and so we did. This was our first exchange and we hope lots like this will follow.
It was a very nice stay in Amsterdam. Ellens home was clean and spacious, and we felt like home immediately as we entered. It takes only a few minutes to go to the center of Amsterdam by tram, and it stops very close to the Apartment. The neighbour was very kind and gave us the key and some informations when we arrived. Many evenings, we enjoyed the terrace at the roof which has a great view over Amsterdam. This was our first Exchange - and it showed us how easy and convenient it is. Ellen and her husband answered on every question we had, and helped us with the parking lot etc. Thanks for a lovely stay. Brian, Christina, Josefine and Jakob
We loved to stay in Brians house. A special 'eco village' where you can feel the pleasant atmosphere and the interest of the people in the environment of where they live. Aarhus is a nice city, easy to get there either by car of by bus. We also went to the beach. Brian and his family left our place in a perfect way, they even cleaned their own used sheets. We had fun with their very independant cat Manse. We had a good time.
