  • Description


    We are Clara and Philippe, a couple that lives in this beautiful house in the valley of Guadalest, in Alicante (Spain).

    I am Clara, I'm 63 from Alicante, and this is my family house where a rise my kids. Philippe is my French husband, he's 67 and he's a retired plumber. We speak Spanish and French, and we can help you improve either of these two languages if you need to.

    The house is located in a beautiful valley, surrounded by pine forest and has awesome views!
    You can go for a wonderful hiking to any of the mountains around, and you can visit the stream that is 5min walking from our home. The place is perfect for having a quiet time, reading, walking, maditating, doing yoga, working out or simply enjoying a slow life.

    In the house, you will have your private fully equiped room and access to all common areas of the house. We'll provide you breakfast and lunch, and space in the fridge and the cupboard so you can keep your foods in it.
