Accommodation and ages:

Host family:

MARAVILLAS PROGRAMAS INTERNACIONALES S.L. has a specific person in charge of the selection of the host families. This person inspects all the houses of the host families every year, keeps a date base with details of each host: number of rooms, their size and pieces of furniture available, as well as additional amenities and services.
In addition it contains all the information concerning with the family structure, children, relatives living at home, pets, dietary and smoking habits.

MARAVILLAS PROGRAMAS INTERNACIONALES S.L. guarantees a smoke-free environment. Families and students should smoke outside (on the terrace, balcony or in garden)
The average distance of the families’ houses is 10 minutes walking from the school. (Maximum distance 25 minutes walking)        

Depending on the students’ needs, they will be assigned to a family, according to the following criteria:
-Students attending courses for adults (+18) never share a family with students under 18 years old.
-Adults (+18) stay individually at a rate of one student per family or in case of couples or friends they can share a room

-In the case of  teen students, (13 to 17 years old) the school houses up to a maximum of four students, same gender, per family.
– Students of different gender do not share the same room, with the exception of siblings.
-In our International Summer Courses for teenagers, the school always places students from different nationalities at the same house, so that the use of their mother tongues is avoided and Spanish language practice is encouraged, unless we are specifically asked to do otherwise.
-During his/her stay, the student may request one (1) change of accommodation at no additional cost, if the assigned family does not meet the student’s expectations or if any problem occurs; any further change of accommodation will have an additional cost of 25€ in terms of transportation and compensation
