Spanish host families

Most of our host families live in flats, as there are practically no individual houses in San Sebastian. A typical flat (see photo above) has 3 or 4 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, dining room and living room. Some flats have terraces, and most have balconies.

All families are within a distance of 5 to 30 minutes from the school, either on foot or by public transport.

The apartments, which are comfortably but basically furnished, are normally located 5 to 30 minutes from the school, either on foot or by public transport.

For groups of students coming together, or with their families, or for people wanting more privacy, private apartments can also be arranged. These are usually rented for calendar month periods, although some may be available for fortnights.
