Looking for non-simultaneous swaps: we’d like to spend Christmasses 2 weeks in warmer climates (e.g. USA, South Africa or Australia), in exchange for our house in Summer (July or August) when I decamp to the UK to visit relatives.
This is a typical Austrian large, airy family home (470m2) divided into two separate “generations” units. I live upstairs (2 floors, 270 m2). My mum lives in the downstairs appartment, completely self-contained with its own entrance. There is a beautiful balcony with lovely views to the lake and Alps where you can enjoy your morning coffee or an evening drink. Situated in Central Europe in the picturesque and historic lake district Salzkammergut - 52 lakes (“The sound of music”). The lake is 5 mins. on foot - where you can swim or sunbathe or people watch. There are some bars and restaurants within walking distance. Lots of mountains and hills nearby for walking, hiking, climbing and biking. Mountain lakes to discover. Also several cable cars and a mountain steam train (St. Wolfgang). Lots of culture - the emperor's summer residence Bad Ischl, medieval town Gmunden, St. Wolfgang, number 1 tourist spot famous prehistoric Hallstatt dating from the stone ages with the oldest salt mine in the world, and Salzburg. One/two day trips: Munich and Vienna about 2.5 hours, Prague and Budapest about 4 - 6 hours.
Restaurants (“Wienerschnitzel”) and coffee houses (“Apfelstrudel”), farmer markets and bakeries nearby.
We have one friendly and cute cat, easy to care for.
