Our home

Our home is on two levels: level 1, directly opening on the garden with a large kitchen+living-room (PC,tv), two bathrooms (2wc+shower+tub), 3 bedrooms with a total of 6 beds; level 2, directly opening on the garden, with guest room (shower+wc, library, laundry, storeroom, toys room and garage, with a couple of bed places). The garden is secluded, about 600 m2, with a terrace for sunbathing+barbecues, shades, trees, a swing. Our village belongs to the regional park of Appiano-Tradate, where it is possible to go tracking and biking. Within 800 m you find the centre with supermarkets, shops, restaurants and very good cafés, in Appiano and just nearby there are 2 sporting centres with swimming pools, tennis courts, golfing etc.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 5: Carlo (58, chief of personnel in a hospital), Piera (47, part-time translator), Barbara 18, Luigi 16 and Alessandro (13), still at school. We have already had a lot of exchanges in France, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, England and Spain,always with very good results. We like this way of going on holidays and making new acquaintances. Our children know very well how to behave themselves in other people's homes. Anyway, since we have started to exchange homes in 2000, and although we hope never to have to use it, we subscribed an insurance which is going to pay for whatever damage we could cause.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our neighbourhood is quite peaceful, on the outskirts of our village Appiano Gentile, in a quarter made of semi-detatched houses. The village life is quite peaceful, with its market, churches and supermarket, as well as a number of small shops and characteristic cafés. From the main square the buses take you to Como in 30' or to the nearby village, from which one can easily reach Milan or Varese. Switzerland is only 13 km away. Within 1 hour by car you can reach a number of beautiful renowned lakes: lake Como and Lugano(30'), lake Maggiore and Orta (45')as well as some towns as Turin and Bergamo. Within 2/3 hours you can reach some more major ancient Italian towns, like Genua, Bologna, Verona, Mantua. If you prefer you can go along lake Como, cross the border and get to Sankt Moritz, in Switzerland. From there you can, in one day, go for a tour in German Switzerland. Florence and Venice are 4 hours away by motorway. within 2 km you find 2 sporting centres located in the middle of the park, with all kinds of facilities and swimming pools. Appiano Gentile is especially renowned because the famous Inter(national) football team is based there, about 1 km from our home, in an area easily reachable on foot or bike (we leave 5 for you in the garage). From the main square (800 m from our home) you can easily enter the park and its many trucks and ancient farms.
