We are a Spanish family. Really it's amazing because I am French but when I came here for the first time when I was 20 years old and decided to live in Spain, I was as you : young and plenty of dreams. I felt in love with this part of this beautifull country. This is a mixture of sea, sun, sky, mountains, wild country... almond and olive trees, with a lot of contrasts plenty of a warm space and bright light.
In our family we are four : my husband, Raul who is 41 years old ; our son, Marc who is 10 years old ; our cat called Bolita; and I, Nathalie and I am 48 years old.
As we love mountains, we live in a big house all surrounded by them and we can also see the Mediterranean sea from it and the stars at night. Our house is near a little village of 500 inhabitants and it is at 30 minutes by car from the main city called Castellón with 180.000 inhabitants, at one hour by car or train from Valencia and at 4 hours by car or 2 hours by train from Barcelona.
We love nature, trekking, horse riding, riding our bikes and go swimming to the sea, rivers or at the swimming pool in our village. We travel abroad when we can because we love travelling and meet new people and cultures.
If you are a good English spoker, we invite you to join us for two weeks or a month and to help us to improve our English. You will spend a time working for us as a teacher and as a sister or brother of our son. We assure you a bedroom and a bathroom only for you. During your free time you can participate in our daily routine as another member of our family will do. We do together a lot of activities and you could visit part of our country together with us.
If you love nature, sports and calm : you will enjoy our Mediterranean countryside. During your stay we will transmit you all our knowledge from our country and our beautifull area in order to help you to understand our language and our traditions and to make you feel the Spanish way of life.
We think that summer is fantastic but we are free to invite you when you want. So : welcome to our family and our house !!!!
Raul, Marc and Nathalie.
