“We have just spent a wonderful fortnight in Paul and Christa’s charming apartment right in the center of Bern. The apartment is light, spacious and beautifully decorated with three large bedrooms and a huge dining table. Perfect for family gatherings. The place was very clean and well equipped and the location couldn’t have been more convenient with a tram stop just outside but an easy walk into the city center as well as the parks and walks alongside the beautiful river Aare. Bern is a delightful and compact city with so much to see and do. Paul and Christa are completely trustworthy and are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and completely at home. We thoroughly recommend this exchange.”
Christa And Paul's reviewsAs a host (4)
“Thanks to Christa and Paul, Bern came as a complete surprise to us. It is such a lovely city, with gorgeous landscapes around... Then, the apartment was a wonderful place to stay, with huge spaces, tons of light, beautiful arrangements, and very quiet. Very close to the center too - I mean in the center, and ten minutes away from the old streets. It was a pleasure to cook in the super-equipped kitchen. Everything is thought with taste in this very inspiring environment. I recommend it very warmly.”
“Christa and Paul's apartment is perfectly situated in Bern. The old town and the open-air swimming are are just minutes away. It's a beautiful, spacious airy apartment with balconies on both sides so you can enjoy views of the street or the quiet inner courtyard. They are real homemakers so everything is of high quality and has a lovely artistic touch. Our two kids (6&7) had great fun playing in the apartment. There's also a lovely little playground just outside where they played every evening. Bern is a jewel of a city. It's quite small and easy to get around. The old town is well-preserved and very relaxing to walk about. There's a lovely blend of nature with the city and superb views of the majestic Alps in the distance. Christa and Paul were wonderful exchange partners. Kind, friendly, decisive, easy to deal with and generous to a fault. We found their home in perfect order and found ours in perfect order on our return. We highly recommend them, their apartment, and Bern! Mel and Sheila.”
“We have just returned from a fabulous week in beautiful Bern, Switzerland. This is a lovely city with picture postcard architecture, too many attractions to mention, and we really enjoyed our time here. One local we spoke to said that it is one of the safest cities in the world, and for a capital city, we did feel safe. The transport system is excellent, with trams and buses a plenty getting you from one place to another in no time at all and the main train station will get you to anywhere you want to be in Switzerland, it is only 2 tram stops from the property or can be walked easily in around 10 minutes. We bought Swiss Rail passes before we arrived and used them well; it was most relaxing doing all our touring without a car! Paul and Christa’s home was just delightful! It is a centrally located spacious, light city centre apartment. Externally, the property is in a beautiful building and inside has many traditional period features, in addition the furniture, lighting etc, elegantly compliment the interior decor perfectly, and everything has been creatively thought through. The property was very clean and well prepared for our arrival. We had good communication with Paul and Christa beforehand and during our exchange. They speak and write excellent English, they promptly answered our questions about transport, where to take our kids skiing locally etc, and provided us with information about the property and local area, all in all they were excellent hosts. In addition they left our place in great shape and we can highly recommend this Home Exchange. Thanks Paul and Christa for a great holiday and I hope we will keep in touch.”
