“Last year we have had our holidays in Vigo in the spacious and really nice, clean and well equipped apartment of this family (Fede , Susanna and Sara.) We enjoyed the city of Vigo and even more the surroundings with its beautiful beaches mostly visited by Spanish people and only few other foreign tourists. Its was great to exchange te cars and private parking space. The family used our house in the Netherlands with respect and took care of our cat very well. This was an perfect exchange! Thank you! We recommend a swap with this family in Vigo!”
Federico's reviewsAs a host (3)
“This summer we were lucky to swap flats with Federico and Susanna. As we live in a big city (Berlin), we were sceptical at first if we wanted to spend our summer holidays in a city. But we noticed quickly that it was great! Vigo is a very interesting town, indeed, and not so touristy. The flat is situated quite perfectly. We were able to walk into the town centre in the evenings and there are a lot of good restaurants nearby. The beaches are easily reached by car, so that we visited different beaches without a lot of effort. The offshore islands are a dream and all of Federico's and Susanna's advice concerning excursions was wonderful. We had first planned to travel to northern Portugal for a few days at the end of our holidays, but as we enjoyed Vigo and the surrounding countryside so much, we stayed until the end. From planning the journey until the end of our holiday we felt like we were dealing with a very very nice family. Unfortunately we didn't have the chance to meet personally. The communication went perfectly and especially when one of us had some health problems and we had to rely on medical support, it became evident that Susanna and Federico were very helpful and wonderful exchange partners. The flat is comfortable and very big, which was perfect, because our two pubescent children and us had enough space to do our own things. Dear Susanna, dear Federico: how lovely to have met you (at least through email and whatsapp :-))! Thanks for giving us the chance to spend such a great time in Vigo! ”
“We spent 2 weeks in Federico and Susana's home and it was a pleasure as the house had ample room for myself, wife and 2 adult daughters. All modern appliances were available and we were able to walk to many very good restaurants and scenic attractions. It was easy to travel, either by public transport or our own car, to surrounding cities and towns. Our family will always have fond memories of the waterways and beaches we experienced on this trip and the people we met. Arranging this home exchange was completed with a minimum of fuss.”
Where is it?
Estamos al lado (a 2 minutos andando) del monte del Castro, desde el que hay vistas panorámicas espectaculares de la ciudad y de las islas Cies. Durante el verano hay barcos periódicamente que van a las islas Cíes.
El monte del Castro es ideal para salir a pasear o a correr.
En un radio de 15km hay 6 playas diferentes.
La ciudad de Vigo, así como su entorno, disfruta de un microclima que le permite tener temperaturas suaves en invierno y cálidas en verano para poder disfrutar de las playas. Vigo es una ciudad costera, y tiene varias playas. Nuestra casa no está exactamente en ninguna, aunque en 10 minutos se llega a ellas.
Se puede disfrutar de la gastronomía (mariscos, empanadas, pulpo, vinos) a muy buen precio tanto en Vigo como en toda Galicia.
Estamos a 30 kilómetros de Portugal, concretamente de ValenÇa do Miño, precioso pueblo con una gran muralla y espectacular casco antiguo.
Porto (en Portugal) está a 150km pero se llega a ella en 1h30m. Bonita ciudad para pasar uno o dos días.
Las playas del norte de Portugal son dignas de ver y disfrutar.
Santiago de Compostela está a 80km de nuestra casa, con su catedral y casco histórico que invita a pasear y disfrutar de la ciudad de una manera relajada y tranquila.
