House in APIES,HUESCA, Spain
We are a couple of retired people, Jesus, psicologist (70) and me , Blanca,(66) a college teacher in Language and Literarure, just retired, so we have the full year for swaping.
You can mail in Spanish, English or French.
We are non smokers so only non smokers partners are wellcome. We usually travel only two, so we would rather no more than four people at home.
As Intervac members , we are quite experienced, we have swaped 36 times in Europe ,Canada and Spain.
We live in Apiés, a rural square of Huesca , 9Km far from the capital, placed into the Sierra de Guara Park in Aragon, a county in the Nord of Spain. Our house is located near the Salto de Roldan, a special kind of mountains, called Mallos, as you could see in the pictures. This area is good for sports as trekking, mountain byking, cycling , horse riding etc. Apart of this , there are a very rich cultural heritage and beautuful landescapes. As a rural area, it grows crops, almond and olive trees, wich gives a sense of calm and beauty. If you were fond of photography, drawing or painting you would find beautifull sceneries.
In the capital Huesca, you can find all services, facilities and amenities, but you need a car. Huesca is well communicated by motorway with the capital of the county, Zaragoza ( 45min driving), and the Nord, with the Pyrenees , St. Sebastian, Bilbao or Barcelona . High speed trains start from Huesca to Madrid or Barcelona and there is an airport in Zaragoza( one hour from our house). In Huesca you will find climated swimming pool in winter and open air in summer, apart from a golf area..
Our house is an ancient rebuilt school from the 40s. It is provided of three doble bedrooms, a large living-dinningroom with fireplace, a kitchen and two badrooms. Upstairs, under the roof, there is a big loft, studio and living room. At the ground floor a screened porch sights to the garden, it is a very confortable livingroom either winter or summer.
Outdoor, the house is surrounded by a garden and horchard, a shed for the garden tools, a storewood and a tank of propano, that powers the cooking and heating. Indoors , our home is provided wiht all the facilities, as flat rate intenet by wifi.
The garden is automaticaly watered during the night, because in Spain summer is hot. The only duty you must do is cut the lawn - of course, wiht a modern mower- at least once a fornight, or pick up tomatoes, fruits or flowers. We love gardening so it is believed our swapers love too.
Apart from this, we love cats. They are living and feeding outdoods, next to the woodstore, however they are used to coming near us and they are friendly.
We have good memories all our partners whatever were their ways of living, even if we had to do things that we had never done before, as care for chikens or other pet or the orchard.
It is worth this way of connecting people . If something is differente from our home or mind, we will work out. Make sure we will care your house and belongins as we would you care for ours.
At home you will find guides made for us, with photos, maps or other interesting notes, even if you like a short walking arround the area as if you prefer a day trip to the Pyrenees, wild life, golf, swimmingpool, heritage , good food and wines...
We add some web page if you would have a look.
Some places to visit arround us: Sierra de Guara Park, Loarre, Alquézar, Bolea, Arguis, Mallos de Riglos, Canyons of Vero river, Somontano-Barbastro (land of wines), The preroman parish in the Pyrenees ( from the 10 th to the 12th century) the National Park of Ordesa, Jaca, St. Juan de la Peña (monastry) Hecho, Ansó , Zaragoza... tour of " almazaras en el Somontano" old olive oil factories in the area) or the mozarabic art in Aragon or the Pyrenees Park with the Midi d' Osseau because we share border with France...

About Our Family
We are a couple of retired teachers used to travel and echange since the last 20 years
Somos una pareja de jubilados a los que nos gusta viajar y conocer gente y diferentes estilos de vida, por eso desde hace veinticinco años estanos en Intervac.
Nuestra casa y jardin nos obligan a un mantenimiento continuo, sobre todo el jardín , ya que el verano es muy cálido, pero nos gusta. Nuestro gato Misi es el favorito de Jesus, son una pareja entrañable.
Nos gusta dar paseos por la montaña, leer y estar muy al día de lo que ocurre en el mundo , especialmente en Europa y nuestro país. Nos gusta internet, sobre todo a Jesús.
En cuanto a mí, soy muy aficionada al bricolage, pintura y hago muchas labores y trabajos que regalo. Pero mi pasión, aparte de la lectura , es la natación, sobre todo en piscina cubierta que me permite nadar casi todo el año.
