Best start into the world of HomelinkBeing our first home exchange, we have been really excited on what we will expect. Fortunately, Marjorie & Clément with their three boys, already well experienced in exchanges, supported us for all questions and uncertainties to make us feeling very comfortable even long before our holidays started. They surprised us with a big selection of local specialities as well as offering everything needed to “survive” the first days (and even longer). Many guide books and tourism brochures were at our disposal, we even got some more personal recommendations and a house-guide in written form. Their modern house left nothing to be desired and is very spacy, tidy and clean. It is located in a calm neighbourhood, the terrace and garden invite to relax. However, you find yourself in a short (walking) distance to supermarket, bakery or restaurants. Despite a longer excursion to Mont-Saint-Michel and a shorter one to the vineyards of Nantes as well as for a big shopping centre in the suburbs we discovered everything by feet. Nantes is a very lovely and vibrant city – following the “green line” you pass all important attractions – in summer time it is even more spectacular with the “Voyage à Nantes” art installations. A unique place is certainly “Les machines de l’île” with the monumental freewheeling mechanical elephant. In the old town you find everywhere picturesque places. As this was the first trip with our son (5 months) we also spent enough time to relax with him - so we perfectly enjoyed the calmness in the several parcs of Nantes and of course in “our” house and garden. Thanks a lot to our exchange partners for this wonderful stay which was the perfect start into home exchanging!
