Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

The apartment "Kempinski" is our second home, a lovely place, 75 sqm with high ceilings on the second floor (top floor) with panoramic sea view in the attractive coastal town of Vrsar (Orsera) in Istria, Croatia.
It consists of a spacious living-dining room with kitchenette and loggia with functional gas grill, one bedroom with double bed, one bedroom with single bed (plus folding bed if required), bathroom with shower and window.
The apartment is ideal for relaxing and exploring the peninsula of Istria with its hundreds of islands and bays and wonderful historical treasures. As it is our second home, we are flexible about schedules.
Our apartment is located in a quiet area, about 700 meters from the sea. From the 10 sqm loggia (balcony with roof and flexible windows) you will have a great view of the old town and the sea with its islands. You will enjoy the privacy and the wonderful sunsets there. Due to the windows, the loggia is a place to be even on windy days and in colder seasons. The apartment can be used the whole year round. There is air conditioning for very hot days and a fireplace for colder days.
In Graz, Austria, we have a guest apartment to our house and also use it for exchanges. Concerning car exchange, it depends on the kind of swap (simultaneous or non-simultaneous). It is a Fiat Panda 4 x 4.
