It's always great to hear members' home swap experiences. Here's a recent trip report from an exchange this March between Jean's ski chalet in Le Sappey, Rhone Alps, France and Helena and Mike's lovely country cottage in Shropshire, England.

|"My home swap in Helena's house in Oreton, Shropshire, was really relaxing. It's a charming country hideaway, where the pheasants, and even the curlews, outnumber the people.
Ludlow was only 20 minutes away and is a really beautiful town; we visited several times in order to appreciate everything it has to offer, including the pubs and restaurants! Even more intriguing, is Cleobury Mortimer, with its crooked spire and unique independent shops.
I miss the three beautiful cows in the next field, who always wanted to eat my left over food, and lovely old Stella, Helena's brown Labrador.
Helena and Mike are kind and generous people, who made sure that I wasn't short of company during my time there."
