  • Description


    We are a family who live in a charming seaside village located in the center of the Rias Bajas with many recreational facilities near major cities like Vigo and Santiago de Compostela which could visit, even Portugal. We have beaches, mountains, ideal weather, holidays, possibility of many sporting activities, amazing cuisine and nightlife to go out at night in summer. We are active, athletic, eager to learn English and live a new experience sharing our home with a native English-speaking person.

    The children are 20 and 14 years are very good, educated and independent therefore just have to enjoy them.
     The weekends are free and we enjoy them, we party, go the beach, camping, sports practice, field trips, etc.
    We all practice sports such as soccer, running, circuit training, etc
     We are very good hosts and we look forward to having you in our house to share language, culture and as a laugh!
    You can learn Spanish very fast since we live in a town where everyone knows everyone and we work well as a trade are well known here. We try introduce you to people your age to go out at night or weekends if you like.

    Somos una familia que vivimos en un pueblo costero precioso situado en el centro de las Rias Bajas con muchas posibilidades de ocio, cerca de ciudades importantes como Vigo y Santiago de Compostela las cuales podrías visitar, incluso Portugal. Tenemos playas, montaña, clima ideal, fiestas, posibilidad de muchas actividades deportivas, una gastronomía increíble y actividad nocturna para salir por las noches sobre todo en verano.
    Somos activos, deportistas, con muchas ganas de aprender ingles y vivir una experiencia nueva compartiendo nuestra casa con una chica angloparlante nativa . Los niños tienen 20 y 14 años son muy buenos, educados y autónomos por lo tanto solo tienes que disfrutar de ellos.
    Los fines de semana los tenemos libres y los disfrutamos a tope, salimos de fiesta, a la playa, de camping, practicamos deporte, excursiones, etc.
    Todos practicamos deporte como por ejemplo futbol, running, circuito training, etc
    Somos muy buenos anfitriones y estamos deseando tenerte en nuestra casa para compartir idioma, cultura y como no unas risas!
    Aquí puedes aprender muy rápido español ya que vivimos en un pueblo donde todos se conocen y además como trabajamos en un comercio somos muy conocidos aquí. Intentaremos presentarte a gente de tu edad para salir por las noches o fines de semana si te apetece.

    I believe that is not an option but an obligation to know English today, I'd like an native English-speaking girl and enjoy spending time with my kids various activities (beach, park, hiking, swimming pool, etc) and they speak English at all times . Classes just to be very talkative are not necessary because any time is good to learn (at meals, at the beach, playing, etc.)

    Considero que no es una opción sino una obligación saber inglés hoy en día, me gustaría que una chica nativa angloparlante pasara tiempo y disfrutara con diversas actividades de mis hijos (playa, parque, senderismo, piscina, etc) y les hablara ingles durante todo el tiempo. No son necesario clases tan solo que sea muy habladora ya que cualquier momento es bueno para aprender (en las comidas, en la playa, jugando, etc)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have a very good German Shepherd that you're going to love that has its place on the outside of the house.
    No member of the family smokes so we would not want a smoker.
    Please we are not a hotel and we just want the girls that apply to be part of ou family!

    Tenemos un pastor alemán muy bueno del cual te vas a enamorar que tiene su espacio en el exterior de la casa.
    Ningun miembro de la familia fuma por lo tanto no nos gustaría un angloparlante fumador.

    Por favor abstenerse chicas que no quieran formar parte de nuestra familia, esto no es un hotel! Gracias.
