Who we are

  1. We are Valerie and Mike, a couple in our fifties. Valerie works in school administration and Mike is a self employed builder. We like to travel and have already done several exchanges. We are open to offers from anywhere and would consider short breaks (3- 5 days) as well as longer (up to 2 weeks). However, please note that as this is our main home, its only available when we are away at our apartment in Mallorca (also available for swaps), so it's easier for us to do non simultaneous exchanges with other second home owners.
