We had our first exchanging experience in Rob and Diana's house in Encinitas, CA and we loved it so much that we are still talking about it after 6 months. The house was really beautiful and the location was convenient to the beach and to San Diego. We loved dining outside by the pool, we loved looking for fresh eggs in the morning and getting our own organic veggies. Rob and Diana were very helpful while we were planning the vacation. They were very respectful of our apartment and we didn't have any problem. We wish we could exchange again with them! A special mention to Kathrine and Tug the Pug, their 2 funny dogs.

We had a wonderfull exchange with Diana and Rob, and their family. Not only Californie is a beautiful state, the house and its location are incredible, in a wild area with great vew. We loved to be outside, beautifull garden, very quiet, hiking across the road with a beautiful path in the mountains. The house is unique, so sweet and natural. Diana and Rob are lovely people, we keep in touch and they welcomed us as we where in California last year, and they took good care of our house and cat. Encinitas and around are beautifull, beaches and cost are fantastic, waves and surf, close to the beach ! we recommand this exchange, and we would be happy to come again ! thanks again and hello to the diana's family and tuggie & puka.

What we said about Pascale's house:

Our family of four had a wonderful summer exchange at the Segard's beautiful and comfortable home in the hills above the Saone river just north of Lyon. We enjoyed the beautiful weather, the hiking trails through the forest and fields, and bicycling along the river front. We had many enjoyable excursions into Lyon for shopping, sightseeing, and of course the famous Lyonnaise cuisine! The outdoor patio is perfect for dining alfresco, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The Segards have wonderful neighbors (Virginie, Dominique) who were always happy to help give directions and advice on things to do, and they even invited our family to join them for hosted neighborhood dinners on several occasions, which turned out to be some of the most enjoyable memories of our trip. In return, the Segards took very good care of our home during their stay in San Diego and lavished lots of love and attention on our two dogs, Tug and Puka. They even waited at the airport to meet us when we flew back home! We remain friends to this day. I highly recommend exchanging with them for a worry-free and enjoyable vacation to a beautiful part of France.
