    Description

    My name is Manuel, I am 60, I live in Grado, a small place in Asturias, in the north of Spain, one hour from the coast. I live with my wife Elisa, who is bilingual in English and Spanish. I like to go sailing and fishing in the sea, and to walk in the mountains where I have a cabin. We have 2 very lovely and docile dogs. We have previously hosted young students from the UK, France, Germany, Portugal, and New Zealand as part of school exchanges, and teachers from the UK for stays of 15 days. We have also done house exchanges with families from other countries. I offer to share my life and my world, my culture and the traditions of my region (for example: traditional restaurants, sailing, visiting local attractions and trips to the mountains).
