“What a fantastic place! We spent four nights at Lara's home in February and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Did not know the area before and we were surprised how well the property is located. Bregenz, a cultural city worth visiting during winter or summer, with the sorrounding mountains, Lake Constance, three different countries reachable in a 15-30 minutes car journey, it offers plenty of things to do to keep you busy for weeks. Lara's home is a light and airy apartment, nicely furnished and very comfortable. Every detail about her home is very well thought about. Lara is a good organiser, too. Her Home Book will answer all your questions during your stay should you have any. Thank you so much for a winderful stay. Our only regret is that we did not have time to stay longer. Wish you all the best, Gabriella”

About our home
Our home is in Bregenz (30 000 inhabitants), which is in the very west of Austria right at Lake Constance on the border to Switzerland and Germany. From us it's only a short distance to some of Europe's major cities (70 minutes to Zürich, 90 minutes to Munich, 3 hours to Milan and 120 minutes to the French border, Vienna is 5 hours away). It's the perfect destination to visit some of Europe's cultural centres or to just go sightseeing and shopping.
Our area is famous for hiking and skiing. It's 5 minutes to the closest skiing and 50 minutes to the world famous Arlberg ski resorts of St. Anton and Lech, as well as the area called Bregenzerwald. To whet your appetite see the following link:
There is also great hiking as we live both at Central Europe's largest lake (Lake Constance) and at the foot of the Austrian Alps. See this link for an example:
Bregenz has a rich cultural tradition, for example the famous floating stage on the lake.

“Lara and Manfred ensured the house swap went smoothly from start to finish. Manfred's family and their gorgeous neighbour were so generous with their time and any assistance, it was difficult to leave our Austrian "home". The penthouse is really well designed so plenty of room for solitude and family time. Bregenz is a gorgeous town and cycling was a fun way to explore the nearby castle and the Old Town. Tobogganing down from the cable car was a highlight, skiing in St Anton only an hour away. We spent a wonderful three weeks and would do it again, Jemima ”
“We had a wonderful time in Lara and Manfreds spacious flat with its huge terrace Austria even arranged a mini heatwave for us the area is lovely and the neighbours friendly and helpful There is so much to see Bregenze very pretty Went on boat trip to Lindau an had an amazing lunch in sailing club overlooking the lake Ran out of time really will have to return in summer Thanks for lovely trip”
“Lara met us at the train and took us home for lunch. It was lovely to meet the family and receive instructions about their home. The flat was a great base to explore the local area. We used the local buses and trains to have stress free travel. The friendliness of the neighbour and the extended family was an unexpected bonus. We throughly enjoyed our stay. ”
“I want to express my sincerest thanks to Lara and Manfred for making our latest home exchange a truly wonderful experience. They were both extremely helpful in assisting us in the planning of our vacation providing a wealth of useful information. Upon our arrival they greeted us like family with champagne and a delicious lunch in their home. They provided us with everything we needed to make us feel right at home and made themselves available via telephone if we had any questions. They also had a wonderful neighbor who checked in on us and even treated us to some delicious sweets. Their home is beautiful and our family had a great time in Bregenz. The location was perfect as it was convenient to downtown as well as centrally located allowing us to visit numerous quaint and picturesque Swiss, Austrian, and German villages. If you are looking for a great place to visit in Europe that will give you a variety of convenient destinations to choose from, I would highly recommend Manfred and Lara’s place in Bregenz. You won’t be disappointed.”
