LONDON, May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- There's still time to make the most of the May half term holiday with over 6,000 stay for free French home exchange properties to choose from. Plus with hundreds of French home exchangers looking to visit the UK and France within easy reach, a home exchange provides an ideal way to stay for free while taking a half term holiday or short weekend break.
"France always has a good variety of homes available in whatever region," says HomeExchange member Sula. "Our first exchange was to Valbonne in the South of France, a fantastic property. We looked after their dog during the exchange and provided a large amount of tourist information, left membership cards in the house for various museums and galleries, and organised tickets for various attractions for them in advance. For both families it was a great success and we still stay in touch."
From 2009 to 2010 UK HomeExchange members increased by almost 50% as more people discover the benefits of home exchange - no hotel bills, the spaciousness and privacy of a home, and the ability to experience any destination like a local. Home exchange means that except for getting there a holiday nearly anywhere in the world doesn't have to cost any more than staying at home.
"Their property was on the edge of a stunning village in the South of France with a huge pool and was much larger than our terrace house in west London," says Sula. "The two properties did not really compare, but they wanted a city type holiday with lots to do, we wanted a relaxed holiday with a bit of sun and sightseeing - their property was perfect for that."
