Familien Brandt from Bergen said

We had a wonderful holiday here in Windsor near London. Laura's home is so nice - very child friendly, clean and tidy, and Laura and her beautiful family had really prepared everything for our stay! We felt welcome the minute we arrived this lovely home! From here it is only minutes away to parks where children can play, and Windsor city senter is in a short walking distance. We had a great holiday - we traveled to London by train, we drove to Warner Bros studios Harry Potter museum and Legoland, which were absolutely great for the whole family, and we got to do a lot of shopping in both Windsor as well in London. We were fortunate enough to meet Laura and her family when we got back in Bergen. What a wonderful family! We consider Laura and her family as our new British friends.

Cyril et Virginie from Annecy said

Nous avons passé un très très bon séjour dans la maison de Laura. Située à Windsor, elle est idéalement placée pour visiter Londres. 5mn de marche pour rejoindre la gare ; 8 mn de train pour Slough pour un changement de train (très facile) et 20 mn (direct) jusqu'à la gare de Paddington (Londres). De plus, Windsor est une ville typiquement britannique qui est très agréable à visiter. Bref, la famille Coudert a passé des vacances inoubliables (en plus il faisait beau et chaud). Un autre avantage de cette maison à Windsor c'est .... Laura. Elle s'est occupée de tout pour faciliter notre séjour. Nous avons communiqué très souvent avant notre arrivée et Laura a toujours été très disponible. elle nous a envoyé de nombreuses informations sur : le train, les tarifs, les visites, les meilleurs solutions pour faire telle ou telle activité. Elle nous a même réservé le taxi pour venir jusqu'à la maison et pour repartir à l'aéroport. A notre arrivée, dans la maison tout était préparé et il y avait de nombreuses explications. Nous n'avons eu qu'à nous laisser guider. La maison est parfaite : terrasse très agréable, cuisine et salle à mangé très lumineuses, les chambres étaient prêtes ........ bref pour un premier échange, nous avons eu beaucoup de chance d'avoir rencontré Laura. Enfin, nous avons eu la chance de rencontrer Laura et sa famille à Annecy. Et là encore rien à redire : gentillesse, disponibilité, compréhension (mon anglais est limité) étaient au rendez-vous. Pour conclure, si Laura vous sollicite pour un échange ........ go go go. Je vous conseille d'accepter. Encore merci pour tout. Cyril et Virginie

What we said about Cyril et Virginie's house:

We had a lovely stay in Cyril's apartment in Annecy! The flat had all we needed and a nice view on the mountains. Cyril met us and took the time to show us how everything worked. He even offered to show us around town, which was really kind! Annecy is a gorgeous little town with so much to do - we took the pedal boat, hired bicycles for a ride along the lake (clean enough to swim in!) and visited some of the many parks and playgrounds. A great holiday! Many thanks to Cyril and his family. Laura and family

Cecilia from Province of Padua said

Exciting holiday in Windsor (the old village, the castle and the wonderful walks, including the famous Long Walk are absolutly breathtaking) and surroundings (Oxford, Eton and the Berkshire countryside). Lovely family. Immediately created a good feeling, since the first contacts. The house of Laura, Massimo and Giulia, Emma, Stefano and Elena is charming, cozy and comfortable, very British, we immediatly felt at home. Highly recommended!

What we said about Cecilia's house:

We had a fantastic holiday in Padova. We really enjoyed our stay in Cecilia's elegant, spacious and comfortable home. Great communication before our arrival and when we got there we found all we needed... our very kind hosts also left a basketful of local specialities! We visited the beautiful town of Padova, which is only 10 minutes by car from home, and of course Venice, again easily reached with a short drive. Thank you so much!

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Windsor dans la charmante maison de Laura et de sa famille !! Tout était parfait ! Laura etait très disponible et nous a conseillé avant et pendant notre séjour pour que nous profitions au mieux des vacances dans cette très jolie ville ( sur les transports, sur les visites, sur les commodités ) . La maison est très pratique et proche de tout ! les enfants ont aimé découvrir les nombreux jeux mis à disposition, mais se sont aussi beaucoup amusés avec le trampoline! La ville est très agréable avec beaucoup de choses à visiter et de ballades a faire. Londres est tout proche, et les trains fréquents ! Encore un énorme merci pour cet accueil !!

Una casa bella e confortevole , con tutte le comodita', molto accogliente...e' la prima volta, in tutti gli scambi effettuati, che cia siamo sentiti come a casa nostra. grazie all'accoglienza dolcissima con cioccolattini e marmellate e a tutti i consigli e indicazioni che ci hanno fornito per rendere piu' gradevole e speciale la nostra vacanza. Windsor e' un paese molto grazioso, vivibile e tranquillo , collegato benissimo con il treno a Londra, neache mezz'ora alla stazione di Paddington. che dire di Londra... sempre affascinante!! Grazie per questa bellissima vacanza a Laura e famiglia...tank you very much

What we said about pina's house:

We had a fantastic holiday at Pina's second home in San Teodoro! The house had all we needed, including a lovely terrace where we ate breakfast and dinner. The village caretakers met us on arrival and were there to answer any queries. We also had the pleasure to meet Pina, who is a really lovely and helpful lady. Every day we'd drive to ta different beach (a car is essential), all within 5-15 minutes from home. Turquoise sea, white sand... the scenery could not have been more beautiful! And, since we visited at the end of May, the flowers were in bloom and the beaches practically empty. Thanks again, Pina and family, for a lovely holiday. We'd love to come back to Sardinia one day!
