  • Description


    Me (Juanjo) and my kid, who is 14, are looking for someone to practice English. We live in a beautiful house located in a peaceful quiet village near Girona. The area is completely natural, fields, forests, etc. The house works as well as a summer camp, so there will be some activities going on in the house. We are looking with someone opened and willing to live in the nature.
    We are very opened and do lots of activities such as playing the guitar, jewelry, outdoor sports, house maintaining, construction, animal care, etc, that will love to share if wanted!

    We live in a natural privileged area. The house has a huge field space, orchard, and some animals like donkeys, chickens, rabbits, etc. The village is really small and quiet so it offers a peaceful stay. At the same time, it's really close to the city of Girona (15 min drive) and to the Costa Brava beaches (20 min drive).
