Hi we are Marc and Aurora. We are both teachers and work in the IT field. We have a son aged 18 who study at the University, so he is not living at home at the moment. We don't have any pets. We enjoy travelling, visiting different cultures, tasting different meals, wine etc. We both love exercise and the cultural lifestyle. We have a deep respect for other cultures and we will take care of your home like mine. Our preference is for adults or grown children.

Description of the home we are offering for exchange
Modern apartment in Valencia, located in one of the best neighbourhoods with excellent views. The area has a vibrant atmosphere. Very well connected to the beach and the city center, it only takes 30 minutes on foot or 10 minutes by bus (bus station just at the corner). The apartment has an ensuite room and a junior room with a full bathroom in front. We also have an office room where we work from home sometimes. The apartment is very sunny, with a glazed south façade. 2 long balcony that allow to have breakfast or just dinner outside with the best view. The entire apartment has great views.

One of the most unique parts of the city is Jardines del Turia, a 5.5-mile-long (9km) green lung that bisects the city. (just inform of the apartment). The dry riverbed of the flood-prone Turia river was diverted to the south of the city after the disastrous flooding of 1957, and it's since been turned into a beautifully landscaped ribbon of parkland, home to some of Valencia's biggest draws.
Cycling or walking the length of Turia Gardens is an excellent way to explore, from the Bioparc zoo at its western end to the City of Arts and Sciences, near Valencia’s port at its east. Here you’ll find a cluster of big-hitting attractions housed in futuristic buildings designed by local architect Santiago Calatrava: the eye-shaped Hemisfèric, an IMAX theater; Oceanogràfic, Spain’s most famous aquarium; state-of-the-art science museum Museu de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe and Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, a majestic opera house.
Around the halfway point is Jardins del Real (Royal Gardens), where you’ll find the kid-friendly Museu de Ciències Naturals. Adjacent to the gardens is the excellent Museu de Belles Arts, Spain’s second largest art gallery.
