** Looking for a house swap in London for 4-6 weeks Sept/Oct/Nov 2017. Some flexibility around dates. Also South Spain/France/Italy/Greece in Dec 2-17/Jan 2018.
Located in the leafy suburb of St Albans our modest home is in a beautiful tree lined street and quiet neighbourhood. It is a 5 minute drive into the very heart of the city, and the bus stop a half block away. Our home is well cared for and well heated with a wood burner and two heat-pumps. Kitchen and bathroom are recently renovated. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 of them large doubles, and one being a small double. We have a big back garden area which is totally private and a great place to find a sunny spot and relax in.
Devastated by earthquakes 7 years ago, Christchurch is a crazy colourful city re-emerging from the ruins. Cranes dot the skyline, alongside blocked roads, empty demolished lots, seemingly abandoned buildings and shops and restaurants operating out of shipping containers. Christchurch is a city reinventing itself, full of vibrancy and often voted as one of the top destinations to visit in the world. It also is the gateway to the South Island with its incredible mountains, glaciers and wild scenery (think Lord Of The Rings).
In saying that, personally we are well over road cones and insurance companies and are looking to take our first decent holiday out of the city for 7 years! Hence looking at a house swap in London and/or southern Spain, southern France or Italy in the second half of 2017
