Testimonials from Cottage and Villa Owners

R & J Conneely - We have 3 properties on the West Coast of Ireland and have welcomed visitors from all over the world. Well done DAE, thanks for giving us the opportunity to visit places we never thought affordable.

A GrahamExchanging our property in the Algarve through DAE has been great. We've been able to travel to new places at such a small cost. DAE's communication and professionalism has been second to none.

J WaltersThe opportunity to exchange a week in our beautiful cottage in Northumberland for a week in the glorious Spanish sunshine seemed almost too good to be true. However DAE quickly transformed this dream in to a reality.

Because of regional seasonality’s, in order to be of benefit to the widest range of holiday property owners, DAE ask that deposited weeks have a check in date of between April and October in the majority of our destinations. You can view our full terms and conditions here
