Exchange with Norway for Spain/Italy/Greece summer 2023?

We are a small family of four who greatly enjoys travelling and Intervac'ing!

Our house is situated in a very green area at beautiful Jeløya, a small island just outside of Moss city centre. Walking distance to the city center with shops and restaurants. 100 meters from the house, there is a well assorted Coop grocery store.

Jeløya is famous for its beaches (even some blue flag beaches!) and stunning nature, including a forest nature reserve where you can take nice long walks or do your morning run. Moss is also a good place for travelling around - it takes you 45 minutes (by car, bus or train) to get to Oslo, and the same distance to get to the Swedish border-crossing and the city of Strømstad.  Just down the street you find the Bastøy Ferry. In only 30 minutes, it takes you over to the city of Horten and the E18 highway to the Southern coastline with cities like Tønsberg, Sandefjord and Kristiansand.
Moss is also known for its many art galleries (Classic but perhaps even more so, modern art).

The house is situated in very safe and stable surroundings, a kids' paradise with large garden (including huge trampoline!). The house has 3 good bedrooms with comfortable sleeping for up to 5/6 people; Main bedroom with a 160x200 bed, and the two other rooms has a 140x200 each. In addition we have a double sleeper couch in the downstairs living room. Two living rooms (main one upstairs and a smaller downstairs) , two bathrooms and a practical kitchen. Underfloor heating in both bathrooms, hallway and one of the bedrooms. Very nice fireplace at the ground floor. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and a Nespresso machine.

Huge TVscreen in the downstairs living room, 55' Tv upstairs. PS and Wii can be arranged (with plenty of games). Free high speed Wi-fi. Aircon in the living room upstairs.
Safe parking.
Exchange of car possible but not necessary.
