Jacques and Lyliane's home is warm and magical, filled with art and unique objects from their travels. They were great hosts in terms of communication, leaving a welcoming meal of local foods for us, and even sharing a meal with us on their return. The house is well located, near two large parks, both with lakes for walking or running around, and it is a long walk or short bus ride into the main part of town. We loved Biarritz, which has extraordinary variety for such a small city, with great food, spectacular views and walks along the coast. We also enjoyed the surrounding area, particularly Bayonne, the small coastal towns, and the foothills of the Pyrenees. It was a memorable home exchange.
Grande maison accueillante, jardin plein d'oiseaux et de recoins. A quelques mn en bus ou en vélo des plages et du centre ville. Excellentes vacances chez nos voisins du Pays basque !
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cet échange et vous remercions encore pour votre accueil très chaleureux. Merci encore pour les bonnes spécialités de la région mises à notre disposition dès notre arrivée et que nous avons beaucoup appréciées. Merci aussi pour l'orchidée laissée à votre départ, qui nous laisse un souvenir de votre passage.... Bien cordialement,
Echange très agréable, très bons contacts avec nos hotes
We met Jacque and Lyliane L_____ at our Santa Cruz home, the day before we took the flight to Biarritz for our home exchange with them. They were warm, gracious, friendly and attentive to the guidelines and post-it notes we were leaving behind. Since this was our first home exchange, we were a little anxious about how it would all work out. We enjoyed staying in their Biarritz home, a well-furnished and well-supplied Basque home. Upon our return to Santa Cruz, we were pleased to find everything in good repair, accompanied by a thoughtful thank you note and a gift of insightful consideration. We are pleased to recommend them to you for any exchanges you may be considering. Ray & Nicole Launier
We loved the house and Biarritz with all the beaches. A good starting point for exploring the different coasts, villages and mountains in the Pays Basque. In the end of our swap we met a really nice couple and spent some hours together talking about all our good home exchange experiences in the past.
