Our daughter will be working at a hotel in Switzerland in summer in Morschach (Ingenbohl, Schwyz) (Lake of the 4 Cantons), We'd like to visit her and find an exchange maximum 1 hour away by car (villages around the area but also Luzern or Zurich are ok). Dates and duration are flexible.

2-storey old fisherman house, completely renovated, with two bedrooms with double beds. 150 meters from the beach and 20 minutes from the center of Barcelona by train or metro. We only accept exchanges with Europe.

Our home is located in the old and centric neighbourhood of Badalona at 150 meters from the beach, it is an old fishing house that was built in 1851, it has the external and internal features of the traditional Catalan architecture.
The surface are 136 m2 distributed in 3 floors and a little garden and two little terraces (one of them is a solarium). The house has 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms -1 of them in mezzanine- with 1 double bed (width 135 and 120 cm) in each one, living room, dining room, kitchen, and working space placed in the attic. It can acommodate up to 4 people.

We are at a stone's throw from Barcelona, just 15 min by metro or train. And in Badalona you will be in the heart of the city, in a pedestrian street with nice neighbourhood.

From our home you can go, in 5 minutes by foot, to:
-All kind of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, ecologic food shops
-City Market
-Restaurants, bars, terraces at the seaside
-Train and underground
-Beach and pathway next to the sea
We'll leave you a brochure with lots of activities to do, such as interesting places to visit, excursions and hiking plans. And plenty of information of unmissable places in Barcelona.
With any kind of service at some minutes our home maintains its calm as it's placed in a pedestrian street. As you have the train station near the house going to Barcelona takes only some minutes. 

Catalonia is a very diverse country: cosmopolitan cities, rich gastronomy, calm beaches and seasides, green mountains, historical architecture and ruins and state-of-the-art exhibitions and buildings. You can taylor your trip according to your preferences: sailoring, hiking, sightseeing, bathing,... almost everything can find it's place at our region!

Our family consists of Montserrat, Josep and Minerva. 
We have a cat you should take care of, we'll explain you how. It's called Ninus and it's really playful and curious!

We, of course, speak Catalan, our language, the language of Catalonia. And also speak Occitan and Esperanto.
