“Carole and her daughters stayed in our home for one week while we were away. The contact with them before and while their visit was very prompt, warm and easy. They took care of our mail and plants and left our home in a perfect state with several presents. Thank you very much for everything, you are welcome to come back any time!”
Carole's reviewsAs a host (5)
“We highly recommend a stay at Carole and Stephane’s house in the picturesque region of Vosges. They were very helpful and we felt welcomed into their home even though we didn’t meet them. It was our first time swapping and they really put us at ease. Like the rest of Europe, summer didn’t quite arrive, but it didn’t spoil our holiday as us parents could relax while the children entertained themselves in the large playroom with hundreds of toys including kitchen, slide, swings and little shop with contents lovingly laid out ready to play with. The garden was beautiful with a trampoline, swings, slide,sandpit and large table where we ate food from the stone BBQ. There was a surprising amount of things to do around the local area. We visited the small confectionery factory in Darney, a brewery in Ville-sur-Illon and the mechanical music museum in Mirecourt. We also enjoyed days out in beautiful Epinal and Vittel. When we arrived home our place was left in beautiful condition and we felt it been looked after really well. Thank you for a great first swap!”
“Le 8 janvier 2013 Nous avons passé de très bonnes fêtes de fin d’années avec des amis dans cette belle maison chaleureuse et reposante. Nous avons profité des thermes de Vittel, visité le musée de l’Imagerie d‘Epinal, fait une virée à Nancy (un peu de Vienne) … et bien sûr réveillonnés … Nous avons été très bien reçus !! Beaucoup de documentation sur toute la région…. Les enfants étaient enchantés de la grande salle de jeux et du jardin (surtout le trampoline) A notre retour, notre maison était bien rangée et notre chat n’a pas vu le temps passer! Nous remercions Carole, Stéphane, Juliette, Angèle pour cet accueil chaleureux Nous recommandons évidement cet échange!”
“We had a wonderful time at the Antonot's house in Valfroicourt. Their village is quiet and picturesque, and their house is spacious, charming and well-equipped. They were so helpful with everything too, leaving detailed maps and descriptions of walks in the area, and a jar of the honey that Stephane collects himself. We ate our meals in the lovely garden, and the kids loved playing on the trampoline. We were sorry that we didn't have time to meet them in person, but we feel as if we know them from the warm correspondence we carried on before and after our exchange.”
“We spent beautiful holidays of one week in this big renovated farm in the heart of the Vosges region during the Christmas period, located in a small traditional village and surrounded by the winter snow. We could not have expected better for Christmas holidays ! We took a ride for 1 day to enjoy also the ski resort of Gerardmer, a great experience. The nice city of Vittel is just 15 minutes far from the house. Last but not the least, Carole and Stéphane were particularly easy to arrange this exchange and absolutely trustworthy. I would strongly recommend them to other people who want to discover this beautiful region and their warm and welcoming house. Merci encore Carole et Stéphane !”
