Living with a Spanish family is the best way to experience the Spanish lifestyle, get to know the customs and practise the language. We carefully select our families so that our students feel like part of them.
Come to live in Valencia
The house of the family
Students stay in single or double rooms and can choose between three types of board (breakfast, half board or full board). Weekly laundry and cleaning service is included. You will have your own keys to come and go as you wish, but you must respect some basic rules and schedules, especially for meals.
The host families
Do not expect the homes of the host families to be luxurious, but for sure they are comfortable and hospitable. Most families live close to the school and the average distance to the school is 25 minutes by public transportation.

The students tell you
The small groups at suitable levels made for a really fun atmosphere where we had excellent and dedicated teachers. After lessons we were taken around many of Valencia's attractions and other various activities. At the end of the day I could return to my homestay accommodation which the school had found for me which was comfortable, clean and within a very suitable distance from the school. There I could practice speaking Spanish with my host and other guests during the evening meal. I want to thank International House for making my stay in Valencia so comfortable and safe, and at the same time, such fun while giving me lots of challenges with learning a new language.
Hello, my name is Yann, I’m 18 years old and I’m from Belgium. I live with a host family, with Gaspar, Leticia and their daughter Sofia. They are a super nice family and sociable people. I talk a lot with them about everything, like the best things to do or the best place to eat with friends and so on. At the same time, I’m improving my Spanish and my vocabulary. They are always there to help me if I have any vocabulary question or trivial questions. And if there is any vocabulary problem Gaspar can speak English. They make my stay go by very quickly. And Sofia adds a touch of happiness in the house. And Leticia is the best cook in the world. She cooks a lot of different things and typical food from Valencia. The apartment is located next to the Turia a beautiful park where you can run and cycle or have a picnic and much more. There is a bus that goes directly to the beach in 30 minutes next to the building.
I had a great time. I am very happy with my stay in Valencia.
