Hello and welcome to our profile, this is going to be our first experience. We are only interested in English speakers in order to practice our English and we only accept one person for a short stay. We are four members in our family: my husband, my 22-year-old daughter, and my 16-year-old son and me, mum. We have a dog too, Max. We live the summer months in a small village called Villarrube (Valdoviño/Galicia/Spain).
In 20 minutes you can visit Ferrol, in 40 minutes A Coruña, in 1 hour Santiago de Compostela etc...
I work in the morning, in a naval company and my husband, in shifts, in a hospital. My son studies 1st year of high school and My daughter 2nd year of career in early childhood education.. My husband and I love to enjoy the countryside. He is a dynamic person. He likes to takes care of his hens, his sheeps, his hives of bees, he plants vegetables in the greenhouse, kitchen, etc. I like to go to the beach, to walk with the dog, to sew, to take care of my flowers, to read, to cook ... My son loves Surfing, the beach of Pantín, where the surfing championship takes place, is to 5 Minutes by car and took you there to the waves. He could also teach you to surfing. Both the friends of my son and those of my daughter are often at home, come and go, stay to play Xbox, sunbathing or bathing in the pool. We have a bicycle that you could use too. We go to the shopping, supermarkets or medical center to Cedeira by our cars. Other way to go would be by bus. My daughter Angela drives and as we have two cars she uses one of them normally, she would love to show you the most beautiful places.

Your room would be on the ground floor, the bathroom is next to it, the bed is large, it has two side tables, a large chest of drawers. There is no closet but we would install a mobile rack to hang your clothes. You would also share the rest of the house with the family.
If you love spectacular scenery and wild beaches, this is definitely the place to go!
The highest cliffs in Europe are near our house.
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.
