“Our part of the exchange was very rewarding: the apartment is really comfortable and well-equipped, the location excellent, the house and garden well-kept. All the neigbors were really friendly. And being able to see the sea traffic from the balcony was wonderful. We met Yvette and James on our arrival and they were really helpful by helping us with the luggage and explaining the apartment to us. Emails were sent back and forth promptly and thus we had a great stay. I hope that they will enjoy Freiburg as much as we did the Isle of Wight.”
