Trip report: lovely exchange in the Algarve
"We had a lovely non-simultaneous exchange with Eileen and Terry. Most of my communication organising the swap was with Eileen who was extremely easy and pleasant to deal with and was always very responsive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in their lovely, spacious apartment in Ferragudo, a quaint Portuguese fishing village. Their home was well equipped and in an excellent location to explore the Algarve, which we did extensively. We loved finding little bays to spend the day by the sea and also enjoyed the fantastic fresh, very reasonably priced seafood - the cataplana dishes being our favourite! Swapping with Eileen and Terry is highly recommended. Thanks again for making our holiday so enjoyable."

New to home exchanging? Try a weekend swap
Home exchanging is a great way to travel without racking up accommodation costs. However, when exchanging for the first time it can seem a bit daunting. Therefore, when planning your first swap you might consider trying a weekend break closer to home. If you live in the city, how about a weekend by the coast or in the countryside? Shorter swaps can be the perfect introduction to home exchanging and give you confidence to plan longer home swaps. Search home swap offers: guardianhomeexchange.co.uk/search
