“We spent two weeks in Lara and Manfred's penthouse and it has been a very pleasant experience. It is a spacious, modern, very bright apartment with a super well maintained garden terrace, that invites to stay outdoor. The flat has all the comforts you could demand. It is located on the outskirts of Bregenz, in a quiet residential neighborhood with a supermarket nearby. A car is recommended to go to the city center. Lara and Manfred are charming and very predisposed to facilitate a holiday stay in an exceptional city. Their neighbor Barbara pampered us with Austrian treats. Highly recommended 4** ”
“Très bel appartement avec une magnifique terrasse. Accueil très chaleureux. La région est très agréable, nous avons passé une semaine formidable, ce séjour fut trop court ! ”
“We had a fabulous stay in Laras beautiful home. It is in a quiet area but close to the center and the lake. Bregenz is an ideal starting point for trips around the lake Constance or for hiking. A family member welcomed us and was available for any question we had. It was easy to communicate with Lara and Manfred. The apartment is well organised and very comfortable. We liked the most the large terrace with the pool. Many thanks for letting us stay in your home!”
“We are very grateful for the opportunity to stay at Lara's and Manfred's homely place. The home was very spacious, clean and we felt very welcome there. The hosts were very kind and helped us throughout our stay, we all the questions we had and just general suggestions to make our stay even better. The homebook also had all the necessary information. The hosts were very generous and they let us use everything starting from their bikes and even the car, which was a massive bonus for our trip as we were able to move about freely. Bregenz is a small but a very beautiful town which is located near the lake. The location of Lara's home is superb, you can reach Liechtenstein, Bavaria (Germany) and also Switzerland in a short time. We also went skiing which was only 30min by car, that was a highlight of our stay! ”
“Lore and Manfred's stay at home was simply...magnificent!!!!!!! The house is fantastic: We were absolutely in love! Spacious, tidy, comfortable, luminous and with a huge terrace full of flowers where you can relax on the garden sofas or eat in the large outdoor dining area. This is a very quiet, two neighbour building in the heart of Europe. You are two steps from any strategic point in Europe, ideal as a starting point for endless excursions either around Lake Costanza, that in the mountains, the castles of Bavaria in Germany or the valleys of Switzerland. The house is a treasure, but Lara and Manfred are even more so. We had the chance to have dinner with them for two nights (on the beautiful terrace) and their friendliness is contagious. They are curious and generous people with whom you really feel that the exchange of houses is the most beautiful way to understand a vacation. Let no one doubt that this is the best place to choose for a great vacation in the heart of Europe! ”
“Wonderful experience from the start; Lara is a joy to communicate with, the house is very roomy and the terrace cannot be described into words how amazing it is! Having the outside terrace with seating aplenty and a small pool was pure bliss. The house is accommodating with everything you could possibly need. The location and parking were perfect for either a quick 1 mile walk to the city center or minutes drive. We felt very safe in the location with our small children. Bonus is the sweet neighbor Barbara who treated us multiple times to authentic Austrian "treats." HIGHLY recommend Lara and Manfred's home in Bergenz, Austria. Thank you for an amazingly smooth 1st time home swap for our family! ”
“Lara & Manfred are the most perfect hosts, Lovely kind People. So easy to communicate with. Great helpful - Super neighbor. The Home Book must win best "Home Book of the Year Award" ! The home is impeccable and super, the terrace amazing and very private. We knew nothing about the area before we arrived but totally love all the walks, the scenery and everything about Bregenz , So much to discover! Highly recommend this home in a most beautiful part of Europe! Superlatives run out for how happy we were with this swap! Thank you for a great swap!”
“What a fantastic place! We spent four nights at Lara's home in February and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Did not know the area before and we were surprised how well the property is located. Bregenz, a cultural city worth visiting during winter or summer, with the sorrounding mountains, Lake Constance, three different countries reachable in a 15-30 minutes car journey, it offers plenty of things to do to keep you busy for weeks. Lara's home is a light and airy apartment, nicely furnished and very comfortable. Every detail about her home is very well thought about. Lara is a good organiser, too. Her Home Book will answer all your questions during your stay should you have any. Thank you so much for a winderful stay. Our only regret is that we did not have time to stay longer. Wish you all the best, Gabriella”
“Lara and Manfred ensured the house swap went smoothly from start to finish. Manfred's family and their gorgeous neighbour were so generous with their time and any assistance, it was difficult to leave our Austrian "home". The penthouse is really well designed so plenty of room for solitude and family time. Bregenz is a gorgeous town and cycling was a fun way to explore the nearby castle and the Old Town. Tobogganing down from the cable car was a highlight, skiing in St Anton only an hour away. We spent a wonderful three weeks and would do it again, Jemima ”
“We had a wonderful time in Lara and Manfreds spacious flat with its huge terrace Austria even arranged a mini heatwave for us the area is lovely and the neighbours friendly and helpful There is so much to see Bregenze very pretty Went on boat trip to Lindau an had an amazing lunch in sailing club overlooking the lake Ran out of time really will have to return in summer Thanks for lovely trip”
“Lara met us at the train and took us home for lunch. It was lovely to meet the family and receive instructions about their home. The flat was a great base to explore the local area. We used the local buses and trains to have stress free travel. The friendliness of the neighbour and the extended family was an unexpected bonus. We throughly enjoyed our stay. ”
“I want to express my sincerest thanks to Lara and Manfred for making our latest home exchange a truly wonderful experience. They were both extremely helpful in assisting us in the planning of our vacation providing a wealth of useful information. Upon our arrival they greeted us like family with champagne and a delicious lunch in their home. They provided us with everything we needed to make us feel right at home and made themselves available via telephone if we had any questions. They also had a wonderful neighbor who checked in on us and even treated us to some delicious sweets. Their home is beautiful and our family had a great time in Bregenz. The location was perfect as it was convenient to downtown as well as centrally located allowing us to visit numerous quaint and picturesque Swiss, Austrian, and German villages. If you are looking for a great place to visit in Europe that will give you a variety of convenient destinations to choose from, I would highly recommend Manfred and Lara’s place in Bregenz. You won’t be disappointed.”
