Elisa is a Legal Advisor for the Andalusia Government. Luis is an architect who has used the crisis in Spain to spend time to family. We have two boys: Armando, 12, and Enrique, 10.

We live in Seville (Spain) but we swap our apartment in El Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz. During the last three years, every spring or summer we spend a couple of weeks in England or Ireland visiting your countries to know them and improve our English. We have made exchanges with families in Cheltenham, London and Brighton, and all of them can put in a good word for us if necessary. Our boy Armando has also been in Athlone for a two weeks students exchange.

We would like to swap our home for around a year during the academic year of our two children to improve their English skills. We should start in August 2016 until the end of school in July 2017. If you live in a well comunicated with the Stansted, Gatwick or Dublin Airports village, with secondary school near for our children's, and you would like to take a break for a year, staying in a luminous apartment in the sunny south of Spain, Cádiz Bay, we'd love to hear from you!

The apartment is a trhee-bedrooms one-bathroom flat in a really quiet area by the Rota American Base, so it is also an english-speaking area if necessary.
