“We had a great time at Oliver and Sian home: cosy, comfortable, full of joy and equipped with everything you might need. We spent beautiful and peaceful evenings in their living room after long days outside. They were very caring and helpful in solving all the unexpected circumstances. My daughters really enjoyed every moment: playing and reading and jumping in the garden (so much so that was not easy to convince them to go out) and spending time with Eddie the cat. The house is very well located, a beautiful walk to the center and to the train station through the beautiful Meadows and Marchmont is a very nice neighborhood with lively bars and restaurants and, just in front of the house, a fantastic decoupage place where children and adults can spend beautiful hours painting and drawing on rainy days. We strongly recommend this exchange in Edinburgh.”

Where is it?
Marchmont is a beautiful Victorian area of south Edinburgh, famous for its Baronial style tenement flats. It has a village feel to it with a clutch of small local shops and little supermarkets. You can buy fish at Eddies and fresh croissants at the Co-op, organic vegetables on Argyle place and Cheese at Wedge and there are about six great coffee shops, and a local gallery where I sell my paintings. You can walk to the Meadows park in five minutes where there is tennis, two kids' playparks, croquet, football and cricket. There are also two swimming pools 10 minutes away.
Marchmont is a 15minute walk across the Meadows from the old town centre of Edinburgh - the castle at the top of the ancient Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace and Arthur's seat at the bottom. Edinburgh is a world class city with the most impressive architecture anywhere and everything within easy reach. The 41 bus stops outside our flat and takes you straight into the city.
Beyond the city to the south are the beautiful beaches of East Lothian and the rolling countryside and secret castles of the Borders. To the north and west are the famous highlands and islands of Scotland.
