  • Description


    We are sociable married couple without children. We live in the beautiful city of Santander, in the north of Spain, between Asturias and Bilbao. It’s a nice and quiet zone where you can practice a lot of activities. We like the beach, trekking, clycling, and we have an another house in a village near to Comillas where we spend several weekends in summer.

    We are easy going and open-minded people who love meeting new people and sharing experiences, because we love travelling and getting to know new cultures. We think it is also brilliant to have people around for the same purpose.

    We'd like to have a native English speaker to live with us. We offer accomodation in a cosy flat in a good area by the sea. They can learn Spanish and we can learn English. In exchange you can visit Santander and Cantabria. There is a low cost airline company from Santander to London and Edinburgh.

    We really like walking a lot around the most beautiful places in Santander, we also like going to the cinema, eating “tapas” (typical Spanish food), and having an active social life.

    We are looking for someone who helps us to improve our level of English and at the same time someone polite, tidy and responsible. We need a volunteer for conversation.

    We would love to help her with anything we can to make her experience here enriching.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Santander combines an urban environment with the essence of Cantabria: beaches, landscape, nature, gastronomy and culture .

    The Bay of Santander is the great symbol of identity of the city, splendid in their layout and color changing as the winds gray and curled with the south, or in the calm blue. Santander is inconceivable without its bay, as you can not forget the influence of this on its people. In the environment of its incomparable bay, Santander can practice and enjoy all types of water sports: skiing, sailing, surfing, rowing. A beautiful place to experience nature.
