“Our family (My wife and I and the 3 kids) took the plunge and did our first holiday by arranging a points swap with Laetitia. Although we never met, Laetitia is a lovely host. Communication was pleasant and to the point. As expected, the heavy usage of the turntable (somehow my kids are obsessed with that ) took its toll and the needle broke. We left an apology card and probably too little money, so that it can be replaced. We stressed about it quite a bit because we wanted to leave the house as we found it. But Laetitia was totally cool with that and told us not to worry. The house is spacious, nicely kept and comfortable. You can tell that a family is living in it, wich was new to us since this was our first swap. Unfortunately the kitchen and the bathroom on the first floor would need some work, for us to feel totally at home. That is where the point reduction is coming from. The house is located in a part of town where people come to visit the narrow streets and colorful houses of the old fishing village. Travelling over the river "Loire" to Nantes is a great adventure that we and especially our kids loved. Nantes has a lot to offer. Great food for relatively little money and much to see (castle, cathedral, island of the machines etc.). The sea is quite a fair bit away (around 30 to 45 minute drive). But we did the trip around 5 times and stayed the day wich made more sense. We tried the city beaches of Pornic as well as the more secluded once south and north of that (we actually never went to the same beach twice just to see what the others had to offer). And that was great. So different and each great in its own way. Thank you, Laetitia, for letting us stay at your home and explore the greater area of Nantes!”
Laetitia's reviewsAs a host (4)
“This is an absolute no go places everybody....It is disgusting, it stinks in every room, it totally lacks confort and equipment, the whole house is dirty, and on top of that the host Laetitia is rather unpleasant harassing you with tons of messages every day because she wants to check if you are in her house or not.....Ridiculous! The first thing I had to do when we got there, was to change her sheets which she had left dirty on the beds, and clean the shower room. No bath by the way, just disgusting shower. Do not stay there, the little village is nice but the place so neglected it wastes it all. We were booked for 3 nights and we left after the second night to stay in a hotel instead! --------------------------------------------------------Host Response: We decided to trust Sandra despite the bad comment she received from her previous exchange, especially about the cleanliness of her house. We regret to have entrusted to him our house. Sandra is absolutely not a reliable person. She was aggressive, that too the bad comment said it, as evidenced by the received SMS that I transmitted to Love Home Swap. She complained about our house while the day before for the next day she made us a request for extension of stay. She complained about the cleanliness while the house was clean and she even got a bad comment on the dirt and lack of maintenance of her house! She damaged the kettle without a word of apology. She wanted to bring down the points of our house even before coming. She offered to bring her sheets to facilitate the exchange because we were busy, on the departure for another exchange, but did not finally bring them. She did not even bother to tell us about her arrival. In short, a person who has nothing to do with the community of sharing and openness that are home exchange sites. A total lack of respect. To avoid absolutely.”
“We took an Uber to get to Staion and back, about 12eu very convient. Loved the colourful neighbourhood, loved the Navi boat and trams, makes getting around so easy. Nantes is a lovely city. Laetitia was very good at communication for getting there , and information about sights, but we could have used some information about how to use the stove top, it is very good but only works with some pans. This is a well lived in and loved family home, in a unique location thank you for sharing it.”
“This is a stunning house with beautiful architectural features and comfy beds. It is right on the river and 2 mins from the boat to Nantes (only €1.70 for an hours worth of travel which gets you into the centre of town). Lovely communication. Be sure that the taxi drops you to PLACE des filets and not RUE des filets - this happened twice! Maybe they do not expect you to have such an exclusive address :D great August week long holiday. Thank you!”
