We are a family of three: father, mother and 5 year old daughter. We are looking for a person who lives with us as a member of our family and share their time with us speaking English.
We live in a village called Hoyo de Manzanares, 35 km from the center of Madrid which is the capital of Spain. The environment is hilly and beautiful landscape. It is a town of about 8,000 inhabitants with great social life and all services close to home (shops, bars, restaurants, hairdressers, postal service, health center, pharmacy, library, swimming pool, sports center, bus stops).
In all these places you can walk a few minutes from our house, because we live very central. The surroundings of the village is within a natural park and scenically beautiful. There are hiking and biking trails nearby.
The temperature in the warmest months (July and August) reaches 25-30 ° C levels during the day and the sun shines almost every day. Altitude above sea level 1001 meters.
The village is connected to Madrid by bus every 15 minutes and the journey takes 40 minutes. Our house is 5 minutes walk from the bus stop going to Madrid. There are other very tourist cities not far from here as: Toledo, Segovia, Avila, Aranjuez, Alcala de Henares, El Escorial and Salamanca.
Thanks for taking time to read our profile and hope we are family you're looking for.
