Accommodation, Facilities and Local Area
The location is Palamós (Girona). The house has a built surface area of 250 sq.m.(m²) with garden and swimming pool. We have two spare rooms. One room could serve as bedroom and the adjacent one could be your private study room or you could have the writing table in the same room. If desired, the student can have 24/7 Internet-WIFI connection.
The spoken language is Castillian Spanish, with full language immersion, but we also speak English and French fluently in case the student has problems at the beginning. The student will participate in all our family life activities, like one more family member. The student can either watch TV in the sitting-room or in the library, or have a TV set in his own room.
We would be happy to show the student around: Barcelona, Figueras with the Dalí Museum, Port Lligat, Girona, and many small medieval towns and other beautiful sights we have in the Empordà area.

We do believe life in our town is much healthier than in a big city. There are possibilities of many more activities without the need to travel long distances.
Our son (28) is a veterinarian doctor and works in Barcelona, and our daughter (23) is a Graduate in English Philology and currently lives and works in London. Our house has 5 bedrooms, a library, three bathrooms, large kitchen-cum-dining room and a sitting room-cum-dining room, a regular garden and a swimming pool. It is located in an exclusive neighbourhood by the seaside. All the Palamós beaches are located within walking distance, about 300/500 metres, from our home.
We are pleasant and friendly, and have an international background. Both my husband and I have worked and travelled abroad for many years.
We will be extremely happy to welcome you as our guest and help you have a great Spanish Experience.
