We had a very good stay at Mauro and Francesca's house. Their house is very great and their neighbors very nice. Their country is very beautiful. We loved visiting Bergamo, Milan, seeing the lake of Come and Iseo, making moutain walks... Thanks a lot !!!
This was our first Homelink experience, and we were so lucky to swap homes with Family Piatti from Italy. Their home was everything we hoped for and more - welcoming, happy, and colorful. It is a very charming house, built in the oldest part of the town, with additions that fit the old style, and with underground parking just across the street. Even on the hottest days, the house was nice and cool. The neighbours were friendly, showed us the house and helped us with all our questions. We felt very welcome, and thorougly enjoyed the garden, the lovely view from the house, and the town of Almenno as well as the exciting surroundings. The house is close to Bergamo, Milan, and the Lakes, and we also visited Crema and the Monza Racetrack. All in all we had the perfect holiday and came home to a house that was in top order.
Franci and Mauros home is very cosy, clean and we had a very warm welcome. Already before there was a lively exchange about the local leisure activities. They are both friendly and the contact with both also during the exchange was always very open and nice. In her house we felt very comfortable. Our son loves the toys from their kids and playing with the cats. Also the neighbor's little dog was fast becoming his friend. The neighbours were very friendly and always open to answer questions. At Easter they surprised us with fresh croissants for breakfast. Thanks again for that. The surrounding is very beautiful, mountains, nature, lovely restaurants with delicious food and ice-cream. We visited Bergamo, a beautiful city. We also found a lot of information about what recreational opportunities there was in the immediate and wider area. Thanks again for your warm welcome and for giving us the opportunity to change our home with yours. It was really great!
"Lovely House in a great location" “Thank you for a wonderful exchange in Summer 2017. Your house had everything & more than we needed. We enjoyed your enclosed safe garden which you share with your wonderful neighbours who were so friendly, kind & helpful to us. We enjoyed your sunny patio & outdoor eating area. Your house is so well located for visiting the towns & villages around Lake Como, Lecco, Iseo & Garda. It is also ideal for visiting Milan & Verona. Bergamo is a beautiful city with lot’s of historic sites, restaurants & good shopping. Your information folder with brochures & information was excellent. Thank you for taking good care of our house & car when you stayed. ”
We had a very enjoyable stay in this lovely house in a beautiful location. The view from the garden is spectacular! Almenno San Salvatore is conveniently located so that you can explore Lombardy and go sightseeing in Bergamo, Milano, or Brescia, or relax by the shores of Lake Como or Iseo. Restaurants and shops are nearby. Thank you for taking such good care of our house while we were enjoying Italy!
We had a nice time, didn't knew we had to share the garden with the neighbours but as turned out, they were great and we had a few dinners together. Little house and lot's of musqitos and the bed was a bit hard but we had a great holiday, thank you.
