Our home

If exchange dates don't work, we will rent at modest prices to fellow Home For Exchange members. Charming house in the foothills of Friuli, one hour's drive from Venice and Marco Polo Airport. Fully equipped, there is a modern Snaidero kitchen, contemporary furnishings, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private patio with view to mountains, barbeque and more. Awesome sunsets, tranquil and peaceful respite after day trips to many beautiful and scenic towns such as San Danielle, Civadalle, Trieste and Udine. Sit back, listen to Paverotti or Enya on the stereo and sip the local Prosecco or Merlot. Dine al fresco on the patio at lunch or dinner. Relax, enjoy... Kids love the freedom of the yard, and trying to catch the little lizards which are plentiful outside. Parking on site.

Who we are

  1. My husband Mario is a native Fruilano and I am a Canadian of Irish German descent. We live near Toronto where I work. We visit Italy frequently and have family nearby who assist in keeping the house clean and maintained. Mario is retired and I am a retail development consultant. Our kids and grandkids love the house and area and argue about whose turn it is next to visit. Our neighbours in Italy, Silvio and Lea are wonderful and you will no doubt meet them. They love to enjoy some conversation with any guests who speak Italian, Fruili, French or German and will often bring fresh vegetables to those whom they have met.

Visit them for an assago (taste). San Danielle a must for local proscuitto, salami. The montagio cheese is fabulous. Famed restaurant Dal Chico, a one minutes walk. Other great eateries within five to ten minutes drive. People visit Fruili for its wonderful fresh and local foods and friendly people. Until you have visited, you won't know what you are missing. Visit the museum of contemporary art at Acquelia, the ancient rebuilt city of Venzone, the famed River Taliamento, the frescoes of Spillembergo and enjoy the markets and church bells whereever you go. Verona and its famous opera arena is a two hour drive and another half hour takes you to Lago de Garda, with charming lakeside villages and resorts, olive oil and wine producers abound. Overnight stay recommended. See the Palladio architecture in Vincenza or Cividelle.
