“We had an excellent exchange with Ezeqiel and Raquel in Zamora. They have a great house, spacey and really comfortable. Especially the lovely shady green terrace, definitely the best place to be on a hot day. They live on a nice walking distance from the the ancient village of Zamora, a beautiful historic town. We were surprised this city still escaped the big tourist rush, because it has everything you can wish for. Surprisingly we almost never saw (hear) another visiter from this part of Europe. The surroundings of Zamora are beautiful. Castles, churches, nature and other historic cities and sleepy villages. Zamora invests in all kinds of cultural activities and museums. We had a very easy and warm contact with Ezeqiel and Raquel, they left a lot of helpful information about the city and all the environment has to offer. We even changed cars, which gave us the opportunity to visit more, like the beautiful mountains and lake Sanabria. We highly recommend this exchange, you will not be disappointed. ”
Ezequiel's reviewsAs a host (3)
“Nous avons passé deux semaines très agréables en Castille et Léon, région qui regorge de sites pittoresques. Salamanque , Toro, Ségovie, Valliadolid ... ). Nos hôtes nous ont beaucoup aidés à visiter la région. La maison est très bien située.”
“We were twice in this nice home and in this charming town. We were there totally for 10 days. The hosts took us around the town. This town has the most of beautiful roman churches in whole Spain. The town is not too big and not too small, just the perfect size. We visited museums, summer theater on a large fortress walls complex. From Zamora as a base we drove and visited Segovia, Madrid, Salamanca, and Portugal. We highly recommend this home, our hosts, and the town of Zamora. Dr Gracio and Dr. Neda Fabris, from Los Angeles, Dubrovnik, and Costa Rica”
