We are a family composed by 4 people. Me and my girlfriend (43 and 42 years old), and 2 boys (19 and 10 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 take part in a educative project in Castalla, that provides free education for children, and its possible to be volunteer in this project, if you want.
We think that this experience can be enriching for all of us and a nice chance to share our culture and meet friendly people.

You are in a beautiful region of Spain, and you have the opportunity and free time of discovering it.If you want, we will be happy to accompany you. Our landscape is famous by big mountains (you can look for "Font Roja", "Mariola, "Aitana, "Maigmó"...on the internet);we are close to the Sea (Alicante, Campello, Benidorm...), and visiting Alicante and Valencia is very easy from here.
Alcoi has University and an important School of Arts, so we have a good young atmosphere.
We have a strong bond with an educative project based in an active education, if you are interested in education, its a great place to know.
We often go to the theatre, cinema, concerts...if you want to come with us, you can do it, and we can enjoy it with us.
We are studying English and we want to improve it in a natural way, speaking face to face every day.

The apartment is composed by three bedrooms, dinner room, a big kitchen with office, one bathroom, and a pretty terrace and one balcony.If you want to stay with us, you will have your own bedroom with nice views to the park.

Our neighborhood is fairly quiet and it´s five minutes walk of the center. We have a bus stop in front of home.
Alcoi is a city, but you can go walking to every side because it´s not very big.
