Magnificent home in Spain offered for exchange with home in Bergen.

We are interested in swapping houses with an academic family from Bergen from July/ August 2020. We are a family with two children aged 9 and 5, and would be interested in a 3-bedroom house.
Our house is located in Caceres in the west of Spain, a UNESCO world heritage city of 90,000 people. The medieval walled city has one of the best-preserved collection of monuments in Europe, and our house is located within 5 minutes-walk of the main square and beside the medieval part of town. Our house dates from the 18th century and was fully renovated in 2015. Accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 home offices, Kitchen, Sitting room, Music room and, 3 bathrooms. There is an extensive patio, and a walled garden to the rear of the house containing olive trees, a fig tree, a lemon tree and an apricot tree as well as an organic vegetable garden. The house is child friendly, and the walled garden is completely safe for kids.
Great care was taken during the renovation process to maintain the original features of the house, while the installation of an underfloor heating and cooling system, run from a heat pump, ensures a comfortable environment year-round. In addition, for winter months, there is a wood-burning stove in the sitting room.
The neighbourhood is exceptionally quiet, given its location close to all the major cultural activity in Caceres. There is free street parking in the neighbourhood. There is a very active resident’s association which promotes regular events and activities which are free for all participants, and would be an excellent introduction to Spanish culture for anyone wishing to experience the real Spain.
Caceres is the gateway to Extremadura, the west of Spain, and the east of Portugal, all areas that have remained relatively untouched by tourism, and which offer fantastic walking, biking, gastronomy and cultural tourism opportunities.
