Who we are

  1. David (37) is a doctor, Anja (german, 36) works in environmental management and our sons Eric and Jan are 7 and 4.

    After an extremely pleasant house exchange experience this summer, we are open for new horizons these winter holidays. Possible dates would be around the 20th of December until after New Year aproximately.

    A few words on our mini zoo: There are two guinea pigs which we would we very happy if they could be fed every now and then. We would need to agree on Bruno, our dog, who would be very happy to stay with you and look after you for some food and a couple of short walks every day.The previous exchange family got on extremely well with him, and ended up taking him with them on all their family trips, but of course, this is not necessary at all.

    We would be very pleased to look after your pets (we have experience also with chicken, rabbits, birds, fish, chinchilla, turtles and turtoises).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a little village 30 min north Madrid up the mountain slopes.

One can walk into the countryside between "dehesas" (stone oak meadows) with wild bulls (don't worry, the paths are safe) right from the house. Mountains with forests ideal for hiking and climbing short drive away.

The village has a few little shops, bars and restaurants and a chemists, although Madrid with all its possibilities is at less than half and hours' drive.

Good location also for daytrips to Segovia, Avila, El Escorial and monumental villages.

Expect winter to be cold in the mountains of Madrid (there is even a skiing resort at 30 min drive). It may rain one day or another, but nice sunny days are very common in the month of december, so even if it is not mediterranean warm weather, there are normally plenty of nice days for outside exercise, walks, visits, etc.
