House near the Mediterranean coast in Vila-seca, Spain


We are happy to announce that we already have an agreement with a family in Italy!!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A SUMMER EXCHANGE (1-2 weeks) WITHIN THE PERIOD July-August 2019 in/near the ALPS in any of France, Italy, Switzerland or Austria ... but we also open to make an exchage in Europe, please do not hesitate to contact us in Intervac or directly to josep.a.ferre@urv.cat.

Our house is placed in a new development area close to the old city center of Vila-seca. This is a quiet and small city close to the sunny beaches of La Pineda, Salou and Cambrils. We are also ideally placed to walk in the roman past of Tarragona, to shop in Reus, an active commercial city, or to discover the interior of the region of Tarragona, one of the emerging wine regions of Spain. From our house it takes less than a five minutes walk to reach a bank office, a supermarket, several shops and also to reach the train station, which offers a direct link (1h 20min) to Barcelona.

In the basement of the house there is the garage, side by side with a gym room + music + library. In the ground floor of the house, the espacious dining/living room communicates to the kitchen and the porch. In addition in the ground floor there is a twin bed room and a bathroom. Finally in the first floor there are two single bed rooms that share a bathroom, plus a double bed room with an ensuite bathroom. Additionally we have also in the first floor our study. Except one single bedroom, all the other rooms in the first floor share the sunny terrace that overlooks the swimming pool.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Barcelona - 100 km

Vila-seca is a quiet and small city. We are close enough of the beaches of La Pineda, Salou, Cambrils, Tarragona ... to allow you to enjoy the Mediterranean sea and beaches (https://costadaurada.info/en) or Port Aventura theme park (https://www.portaventuraworld.com/en).

But, at the same time, we are ideally placed to walk in the roman past of Tarragona, to shop in Reus, an active commercial city, or to discover the interior of the region of Tarragona, one of the emerging wine regions of Spain (http://www.turismepriorat.org/en).

There are two train stations near our place. The first one (Vila-seca), is very close to our house and offers a direct connection to the centre of  Barcelona in 1h 20min. The second one (Camp de Tarragona) is 25km far from our place and offers access to the high-speed train (AVE) linking Barcelona-Madrid. From there you can reach Madrid in 2h 40min or even Sevilla in the south of Spain in less than 5h.

The airport of Barcelona is 100 km from Vila-seca, but you can also fly low-cost to Reus airport (7 km to our place) from some selected european airports.

About Our Family

We are now a family of two, Josep-Anton (60) and Montse (60). Both used to teach, respectively, in the university (now in a sabbatical year) and in a primary school (just retired!). When we started exchanging houses with Intervac some years ago we were a family of four, but now our daughter Anna and our son Jordi live on their own. However, sometimes we still share our holidays with them, and also with Jake (Anna's boyfriend) and Alba (Jordi's girlfriend).

The things we like most to do when we are in holidays is discovering the nature, visiting historical places, castles and beautiful gardens .... or just enjoying our time!
