“We have had the pleasure to have our first home exchange experience in Sao's house. She is a very warm, welcoming person who would do anything to make you feel at home. Her son even picked us up at the airport to show us around the house. The house has everything you need and is near the city center of Porto. There's a lot of nice things to see and do around Porto (beaches, views, port-wine tastings, the city centre etc). We also had a car exchange and that way we could easily see a lot of the area. Unfortunately the weather was very bad when we where in Portugal but we still enjoyed our holiday a lot. Thanks again Sao for the pleasant stay in you comfortable home. Kind regards Geert and Laura”

“Not only have I saved on my hotel-bill, I have also had the perfect tourist guide help make my stay even better. I am quite amazed by the care and effort put into this. Before coming, I got an extensive home-guide with all the information, I needed. When I got here, there was extra tourist info on the table and a bottle of wine in the fridge! I even had access to the car - even though I couldn't return that favor.. The apartment is both cosy, comfortable and with everything you might need. The neighborhood is quiet without being dead, and people are really friendly. Transportation to downtown Porto is easy and hassle-free. -I can only say thank you for all the care and a perfect stay in Porto”
