Nuestra casa

Descripción de la casa que ofrecemos en intercambio

We are looking for an exchange for 4 to 9 (or 12) July 2020, somewhere in Kent, just the two of us. Also, we are open to invitations for 2-3 weeks from 1 August onwards (Italy: from 25 July onwards) to any place in Europe that offers room for 5 people, us plus our adult son and daughter as well as our 16 year old, preferably near a beach, river, lake or good spa.

We have two cats in our house in Göttingen. Our second home in Basel, Switzerland, is pet-free.

Our house dates from the 1920s, is full of character, and renovating it is a never-ending task. We proceed as funds allow. In 2013 we roofed it and added two balconies. in 2014 we renovated the kitchen. Our furniture is a mixture of family pieces and flea marked findings (some renovated some not yet), added by pieces from IKEA and lately some from antique shops. Altogether it maybe called "shabby chique".
We have lots of toys, a number of musical instruments, including a piano and a drum set. We can only receive about 15 German TV programmes but we have a vast DVD collection and an X-Box Kinect which we enjoy on a nice big flat screen. We have thousands of books, quite a few of them in English.
We love gardening but again the garden is a work in progress: A spacious stone veranda and huge cherry tree, and some old roses with mixed borders, a small potager - some parts newly planted, some still fairly wild. As we live in a city the whole place is only 500 m2.

Descripción de nuestro barrio y la zona en que se encuentra

Göttingen is a nice university town, with lots of half-timbered houses (Fachwerkhäuser). Once the Brothers Grimm were professors here. There is a number of very interesting university collections, including the a south sea ethnographica collection of co-travellers of captain James Cook. We have a great indoor pool in walking or easy biking distance, 4 open pools and a small lake, 15km from here.

Dónde ir y qué hacer mientras se esté en nuestra casa

The surroundings of Göttingen offer sweet hills with either fields or forests, some with castles on them, or ruins. The Harz is a 40 min drive to the east and very beautiful. At the same distance to the west you find the beautiful river Weser for lots of possible excursions. The cities of Hanover, Kassel, Erfurt are in easy reach by car or railway. Or you just walk up the hill and into the forest within 10 minutes. Or you take the bike down the valley along the small river Leine.

Nuestras preferencias

Lo qué nos gusta y lo qué no... Estas son nuestras preferencias y normas domésticas.

For 2018, we are looking for 14-21 days in summer, preferably some place connected by public transport. We'd love to be in the vicinity of a good public swimming pool, lake, or beach. We will be at least 3. Our two adult children may or may not accompany us, they might even bring their partners. That depends on the available space in your house and on their individual plans which have not yet been made.
