We are a family composed by 4 people. Me and my girlfriend (46 and 44 years old), and 2 boys (21 and 12 years old).Me: José María, my girlfriend: María José, children: Pere and Marc.
I am teacher and my girlfriend is illustrator.We use to have an active culture life (theatre, concerts,...).We live in Alcoy (but we stay longterm in Castalla), both villages near to Alicante.
Alcoi is a big city surounded by mountains,with a nice atmosphere, near to Alicante and Valencia, with important festivities (Christmas, Moros and Cristianos...).
We think that this experience can be enriching for all of us and a nice chance to share our culture and meet friendly people.
