    This is going to be our first experience.We are only interested in native English speakers in order to practise and improve our English and we only accept one person for a short stay..We are four members in our family: my husband, my 15-year-old son, and my 14-year-old son and me, mum.We spend the summer in a resort with a beautiful blue flag beach called Valdoviño, ideal for surfers. It´s a two-storey house and we also have my mum, their granny. We can offer you a room with shared bathroom. We want our children to improve their English speaking with native speakers..We have a garden to be outdoors. It´s a 5-minute walk to the beach and there's a bus that communicates with the nearest towns and villages.There´s a surfing school in our beach and another one in Pantín beach, which is nearby (5 kms), where the surfing championship takes place. We can provide you accommodation throughout August. Our children are into music and football. We have got a piano too. There is a room that has a table tennis. We have bikes to cycle. Swimming is another activity we enjoy but we warn you that the seawater is cold. If you love spetacular scenery and wild beaches, this is definitely the place to go! The village has banks, post office, supermarkets, tourist office in summer,some shops, a lot of cafes and restaurants.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The highest cliffs in Europe are close to our house and the picturesque village of San Andrés de Teixido. I cannot forget the most beautiful bench in Europe (in Loiba) is also in this area. We are on the coast where the beaches have rough waves; it is the ideal place if you like surfing. It is also windy, so you´ll see people with kites. Our beach is 5-km-long. We are about one hour from La Coruña and one hour and half away from Santiago de Compostela. We want you to enjoy the "Carrilanas" race with man-made vehicles without energy which go down a slope in a competition in August in our village, try our delicious seafood and have fun in the local parties. Ferrol, the nearest town (30 minutes by bus) is in "fiestas" in August as well. There are two camp sites in Valdoviño because there are many holidaymakers throughout the summer. There is also a swimming-pool next to the beach. I enclose photos of our family, our house and the back of the house, the famous "carrilanas" and the well-known Valdoviño beach.
