Our home

Our home is a small but cosy and well equipped. On the ground floor there are the dining room with kitchen and one sofa-bed (for two people), one bathroom with shower and a little balcony looking to the center of the village. Through a little stair you reach the typical bedroom of a mountain house (2 single beds), with beautiful wooden ceiling! Moreover, there's a little cellar on the ground floor, for keeping skies and other big things. From there, you can also reach the towns of Bergamo, Milano, Verona and Venezia, or the beautifuls lakes Garda and Iseo. IMPORTANT: IT IS POSSIBLE TO DO NON-SIMULTANEOUS EXCHANGE! OTHER IMPORTANT NFORMATION: we can also exchange our home in NANTES: a 2 rooms apartment just near the bus to go to the center and very convenient for doing trips out of town

Who we are

  1. My name is Barbara, I live in Milan with my daughter 16 years old. We do like to travel. We have not done a home exchange before but, are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance, in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first, to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Italy.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

It is a typical home near the center of a mountain village (Valbondione) on the italian Chain "Alpi", inside the protected area of "Comprensorio Alpi Orobie". The village is easy to reach in any season better with a car, but there is also a bus-service from Bergamo. Shops and services (bank, post, pharmacy...) are only a few minutes walk on foot. Valbondione is little, but also alive, and in its territory you can find THE HIGHEST FALLS of Italy, that open to visitors 5 or 6 week ends every summer. In spite of that, the place is still less touristic and cheaper than other places, at least for the moment... You can practice many sports: in summer, wonderful WALKING (there are many paths: we are 1000 meters high, but by chairlift you easly reach 2000 meters high) and RIDING. Moreover, it's a good location for living the exciting experience of FREE FLIGHT (paragliding)! In winter, you can chose among alpine SKIING (6 km. away), nordic skiing (just inside the village, 10 minutes walk) and SKATING (inside the camping). From there you can also visit the main North-Italian lakes, like Iseo and Garda, and some important towns like Bergamo (50 km. away), Milano (100 km.), Verona (150 km.), and Venice (250 km.)
