Welcome to Berne!
We (Ruth and Chris) retired in November 2009 after years in the travel business and raising 3 sons, now in their 30’s. Needless to say that we love to travel. We would like to discover more of Europe during the summer months with Home Exchange.
We love to golf and Nordic walking, we love to eat well and Ruth loves to cook and paint. We both enjoy reading.
September 1 — October 31, 2015 These dates are flexible
We had a great time in Munchebuchsee. The house is perfectly located to discover the rest of Switzerland: Basel, Bern, Fribourg, the Emmental, the Berner Oberland and Interlaken are at easy reach and the village is quiet, with services and any kind of comfort very close. The flat is simply wonderful, decorated with taste, spacious, full of light and with everything you may need during your holiday. Ruth and Chris are lovely people: we didn't have the chance to meet them personally but during all our swap we keep in constant touch and they provided us with detailed infos about the flat and the area. They were very careful and replied very fast when we had doubts. On our way back we found our flat spottlessy clean and we appreciated a lot the chocolates they left on our table. This swap has been one of our best. Thank you Ruth and Chris!
We spent a wonderful two weeks at the home of Giovanna, Fabrizio and Laura in Lucca. Their nice apartment is very conveniently located and within walking distance to the old town. We took excursions to Pisa and Siena, to the marble mines in Carrara and the beaches around Forte dei Marmi. We also loved the hikes in the nearby mountains and the drives through the vineyards and the olive groves and discovered many little restaurants with delicious Toscan specialties and great wines. We had a marvelous time. Thank you, Giovanna, for all your help and suggestions and advice!
