Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

It is important for us to find back our house like we let it.
In july and August, it's very difficult for us to exchange, because our children ask us for the apartment to come with our grandchildren, and we give us priority. If around June, we know there will be a few weeks free in july or agust, we could consider an exchange.
