Profile: Couple-Retired - Completed House Swaps: 5
Retired couple - have enjoyed living in Spain for 14 years - family settled in Mona Vale, North Sydney - had two very successful house swaps two years ago in Dee Why and Newport, one simultaneous and each with car swaps, and have kept in touch - would prefer 3/4 weeks but certainly less than two months. Climate similar to Sydney but less rain and Spanish are fun loving people - the cost of living is less than Australia. Belong to the Cost Blanca Wine Sociey, active in the U3A, Mary is a musician and has a choir, and I enjoy walking in the local mountains, Calpe is a popular resort for Spanish and Europeans and is busy in August.
Type: House, Bathrooms: 2, Bedrooms: 4, Sleeps: 8
