Our home

Our little cottage has 2 bedrooms with in all 4 beds and a bathroom with a washing machine. The fully equipped kitchen has all appliances for serious cooking (sorry no dishwasher). From the living room with fireplace you have access to the patio facing the lake and the opposite mountain range. On two sides the house is surrounded by a small Mediterranean garden to relax and enjoy. The exchange can be non-simultaneous and/or combined with our first home Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany.

Who we are

  1. We are Evelyn (freelancing in business consulting) and Klaus (retired) and love to travel. Sometimes one of our grown kids or a friend accompanies us. We love home exchange because you can immerse into the country and come to know the people in a very special way.
    Until 2017 we've accompilshed 45 very successful exchanges.
    Our interests are yoga, hiking and sailing, reading and music (Jazz), nature and gardening, cooking - good food and wine... and much more!
    We are experienced exchangers and will treat your home with the care and respect that we expect you to show to ours.

  2. This year we want to walk the South West Coast Path in England. We are looking for an exchange in this area to relax in-between our long walk (630 mi.)

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated on the edge of a small residence of hillside houses next to the little, old village of Piovere which is one of the of six villages the district of Tignale consists of. There is a tennis court and a swimming pool for a little fee, as well as a restaurant in the residence. In the village you will find a little grocery shop and twice a week a lorry with vegetables and fruit. It is the perfect location for mountain hiking and biking; swimming, boating, surf-boarding and sailing in/on the lake, cultural activities in various towns around the lake, fun parks for children...
The Northern part of Lake Garda is an international site for wind & kite surfing. Nearby there are horse riding facilities. There is so much to see and do: enjoy the hills, the lake or the small towns with lakeside promenades full of restaurants, beaches and shops. In Gardone Riviera you'll find the place of the poet Gabriele d'Annunzio, with interesting museums, theatres, clubs and a famous botanical garden. Further afield you can visit cities like Verona (with the Arena spectacle), Brescia, Milan and Venice.
