“We had a non-simultaneous exchange with Barbara. We went to Abington in July 2017 and Barbara with two friends came over to Stockholm in May 2018. My husband and I enjoyed Barbara's house, which is nice, large, well-kept and comfortable. The kitchen and dining room have a lovely view on the garden which can be appreciated through the wall-size window panes. We met Barbara and David personally and they were very friendly and helfpful. We also met and talked to their neighbours, who were also kind and friendly with us. We were given detailed instructions and suggestions and we felt at home. Abington is very close to Oxford. It is an enjoyble little village on the river. There is a bus service connecting Abington to Oxford. We also used the large parking spaces outside Oxford, which is indeed a crowded city during the summer, due to huge numbers of tourists and international students taking summer courses. Oxford is fascinating. I visited some of the several colleges, which are astonishing buildings where tradition gets smoothly along with modern life. I also took some guided tours in the city itself, while my husband rented a bike and cycled along the Thames. We also visited several famous locations in the region that are easily reachable from Abington/Oxford, such as the Windsor Castle (the historical royal British residence with its royal church and gardens) and Blenheim Palace, where Winston Churchill was born (it is a monumental English country house and now it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site). We are very happy with the exchange.”

“The house is functional, comfortable and perfectly clean. It's located in a quite neighborhood, you can even eat tropical fruits from the garden. Gerard and Catherine are very careful hosts. They have been in New Caledonia for years and can give you advices to take the most of your stay. We spent marvelous holidays on this beautiful island. On the other side of the swap, Gérard and Catherine were very discreet and respectful when they were at my place and let my home spotless and decorated with very nice bunches of flowers. I highly recommend !”
“We had a wonderful week in Utrecht staying in Carla’ home. The home was very comfortable with everything we needed. We were able to use Carla’s two bikes and this enabled us to do many fabulous bike rides along the canal cycle ways and into the surrounding countryside to visit the smaller villages and towns nearby. The home is perfectly situated just a fifteen minute walk from the central rail station and just a few more minutes into the historical centre of Utrecht. Utrecht is a beautiful city to explore on foot or by bike. Carla’s home is very convenient to a local supermarket, shops, cafes and restaurants. We thoroughly recommend Carla’s home for an exchange.

“Wonderful house, great location. We based ourselves here to visit San Diego and smaller coastal towns in southern California. Excellent local amenities. We followed Maggie's suggestions about local places to eat and were not disappointed. Del Mar Fair was fantastic!! Thank you for the admission passes.”
