“We had wonderful two weeks holidays in the house in Mera, 15 km north of Coruna center. The house is spacious, very well equipped, quiet, has 4 bedrooms and a nice garden with a sunprotected terrace and a huge chill lounge. The beach in the bay of Mera is only 5 minutes walking away.We enjoyed the stay very much, the children started surfing in bays closed to Mera. The house swap went very smoothly and without any problems. Juan was very helpful hireling a car, picked us up at the Coruna railway station and guided us through the house. We can highly recommend the house swap with Juan and his Family and Mera as a place to spent holidays.”

“Juan and Isabel's vacation townhouse in Mera was the perfect location for a beach vacation for my husband, our 3 young children, and me. The beach is a five minute walk from their home, and because the beach is in a bay, the water is calm and safe for kids. My younger children enjoyed building sandcastles and searching for sealife (urchins, hermit crabs) among the rocks, while my older child enjoyed drifting along the beach on a paddleboard we rented from a nearby shop. Mera is a small beach community but with some wonderful cafes and restaurants where we had fresh scallops, mussels, shrimp, and peppers -- the best we've ever tasted. During our visit, the summer festival was in full swing, offering nightly entertainment, from fireworks and carnival rides to music and dancing. Our children even tried grilled pulpo (octopus). The house was an easy drive into the old city of La Coruna where we enjoyed the Medival Festival and the windy views from the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Tower of Hercules (first built by the Romans about 2,000 years ago). Mera is also only a couple of hours away from Santiago de Compostela, a beautiful town and cathedral which welcomes thousands of pilgrims every year. The house itself was clean with more space and bathrooms than our family of five needed to spread out and relax. A big hit for the kids was the trampoline in the back yard, while my husband and I enjoyed the back, shaded deck for our morning coffee. Juan and Isabel were the best hosts we could have asked for, providing us with a map of the area, food in the fridge, and a guide of where to shop and eat. You can't go wrong doing an exchange with Juan and Isabel.”
“This wonderful house is a very short walk to a lovely beach and contains all the equipment and facilities required for days of fun at the beach. The town of Mera is very nice and is close to lots of other coastal towns for day trips by car. We had a fabulous holiday and Juan and his family had prepared the house very well so we felt very welcome and at home there for our two weeks. We would highly recommend this house for an exchange. Kate, Dan and family, Dublin, Ireland.”
“Merci à Juan et Isabel de nous avoir permis de passer un séjour inoubliable dans cet autre finistère. La maison est très confortable et est située à quelques mètres de la mer. Les cygnes et les canards nous manquent déjà.”
