“We had a great exchange in Sorede at Marc and Anne Marias lovely and well equipped Villa. The communication was exemplary from start to finish and though we never met we felt we had become friends. The area is a lovely mix of country and ocean and as keen cyclists we made the most of the excellent opportunities to cycle through the vines and orchards of this special area. A memorable visit thank you to our great hosts.”

“We\'ve spent a week in Marc\'s home and have a fantastic time. The area is gorgeous with the Pyrenees in the background; Cote Vermeille with beautiful beaches within half an hour drive and so many places and sights to be visited. We have explored Perpignan, went along the Cote Vermeille, visited the castles of Peyrepertuse and Queribus, the ancient towns of Castelnou and Villefranche-de-Conflent and the gigantic forts of Salses and Bellegarde. There are beautiful abbeys (like Fontfroide) and churches to be seen and normally you would need 2-3 weeks to really explore the area. Marc\'s home is outstanding, very comfortable, has everything you need and can easily accommodate 4 people. It is perfectly located in the south of the province Roussilon which is famous for good wine, excllent food and Catalan culture. We\'ve met Marc, his wife and his sister after returning home and had a good time together. Very friendly and caretaking people with Marc speaking very good English. Thank you, Marc, for providing us with this exciting opportunity. Highly recommended !!”
“The house of Marc and Ann Marie is really beautiful, comfortable and full of all the daily things you could need. Beautiful furniture, beautiful garden (it was not time for the swimming pool but we imagine how nice it is in summer!). The view from the large and sunny windows is fantastic, green hills and some nice houses. We love to make holidays in little villages in the country more than in big cities, and Sorede is a perfect location, between France and Spain, hills and sea. Marc and Anne Marie are very nice, kind and helpful. Their cat Kalina gave us an extra "home feeling". We warmly recommend this exchange and we hope to meet them again!”
“I have just come back from a wonderful holiday in Marc & Anne Marie's home in Sorede. The location was perfect, while in a country setting, the nearby towns of Collioure, Elne & Argeles were easily reached by car. The area is very quiet and the birdsong was wonderful! The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean and the freezer had been filled with lots of food. We were lucky to have fine weather and were glad of the pool to cool off! Marc & Anne Marie gave us lots of information on places of local interest and the GPS came in very useful. They made acquaintance with my neighbours & family and were most generous in their appreciation of any assistance they were given. I was very sorry to leave France but arrived home to a perfectly clean house. It was my first exchange and cannot wait to visit France again.”
“Un échange de 2 semaines fort agréable avec Marc et Anne-Marie: leur maison est confortable et très bien située pour découvrir les Pyrénées. Les contacts ont été faciles et cordiaux tant avant que pendant l’échange, ce sont des hôtes que nous pouvons hautement recommander! ”
“We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Marc's impeccable home in the Rousillon. Sorede is a charming town and Collioure was a stunning day trip, but we spent much of our time relaxing and barbecuing on Marc's patio looking over the pool to the snow-capped Pyrenees. Thanks to Marc and family for an excellent escape to the country from our big city life.”
