“Our home exchange with Francesca’s and Alberto’s family was a wonderful experience. Since our exchange was non simultaneous we were able to profit from their kind help and advices. They live with their two lovely kids in a great house in the hills near Bologna. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and with the atmosphere of a great noble home. We started each day with a walk over the property, which is large and hilly. There is even a small lake on the property. Since our exchange took place end of May, the frogs housing in the lake showed us the way to this little treasure and many plants were blooming. The owners have two well educated and friendly dogs which sometimes accompanied us on our walk. During our stay they provide dus with a little car by which we were able to visit the wonderful old city’s in the area such as Ravenna, Ferrara and of course Bologna (15 minutes). Florence is reached within one hour by a fast train and very much worth visiting. It was always great to come ‘home’ in the house where the only sound you hear were the birds. By the way, there are many possibilities to hike for hours in the nearby National park which is unspoilt and very varied. We did several of them and are certainly planning to come back to see and do more! And do not be afraid that they will bring their kids to your home: the family left our house in perfect order.”
