“We had the most wonderful swap with Sophie and Franck. We were a bit nervous about the swap because we hadn't done a simultaneous swap before. However, we enjoyed communicating with them by WhatsApp in the days before and also during our swap. We felt like we had made some new 'virtual' friends and felt very comfortable that we were leaving our home in good hands. Sophie and Franck's home is absolutely delightful. The building is beautiful and they have created a wonderful, tasteful home. We especially enjoyed eating long lunches on the veranda and of course the kids loved spending time in the pool. The local village is very cute and we made a daily ritual of visiting the Boulangerie to try our French! Sophie and Franck had given us lots of information about the local area and we particularly enjoyed a trip to the Bay of Arcachon where we had lunch at one of the restaurants they recommended. It was a real highlight! The only problem with our trip was that it wasn't long enough. Otherwise, everything was perfect and we really enjoyed swapping with this lovely family. We hope Sophie and Franck enjoyed their trip to Scotland as much as we enjoyed visiting their beautiful home and lovely area of France. Thank you Sophie and Franck!”
Sophie's reviewsAs a host (5)
“This was our first ever house swap and we were not entirely sure what we should do and how we should prepare. Frank & Sophie were wonderful. We spoke regularly through text and emails and even had a zoom call to talk through the workings of the house. The house itself was beautiful and ideal for our family vacation. The girls had a ball swimming in the pool and breakfast on the terrace every morning with fresh croissants was a joy. The outdoor gas BBQ was also very handy and a couple of evenings we had some sausages and kebabs from the local shop. The house was very clean and homely, we loved it! The location was handy for day trips with most places of interest about an hours drive away. We went to the lakes at Biscarrosse and the dune de Pilat. Another day we visited Biarritz which was about 1hour 30 mins. I would recommend a visit here it was lovely with great beaches. Saint Emilion in the wine region was also a very nice part of the region to visit.”
“El intercambio ha sido un éxito. Frank y Sophie son muy amables y respetuosos con nuestra casa. Antes de partir hemos estado en contacto con Whatsapp y hemos intercambiado fotos y recomendaciones durante la estancia. La casa de Frank y Sophie es grande y espaciosa con un jardín enorme en un tranquilo vecindario. Al volver a nuestra casa Frank y Sophie nos prepararon una cena exquisita y pasamos una cena muy entretenida. Asi que recomendamos este intercambio con esta familia y su casa sin duda alguna. Nuestra casa estaba limpia y cuidada cuando volvimos. Hasta pronto! Lluís y familia.”
“We had a wonderful three weeks in Sore, France. The house was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed many outdoor dinners beside their pool and walks in the surrounding pine forest. There was lots to do - visiting Bordeaux vineyards, touring nearby castles and medieval villages, days on the Atlantic beaches, bike rides along the canals, and day trips to Spain. Sophie and Franck are a lovely couple and took excellent care of our home and cat. ”
