Living in a private Spanish home: Homestay or family accommodation is the most popular choice in all five Sampere destinations. You live with a host family, sharing meals and facilities and practicing your Spanish in a traditional and friendly environment.

Before you arrive: We require your arrival information (flight or train time) in order to ensure that your family is at home to greet you. You should call, fax or email this information to Estudio Sampere at least one week in advance, or to your family directly five days in advance. We require complete information to place you with a compatible family: special dietary requirements, allergies, smoking habits, age and choice of meal plan. When your accommodation booking is confirmed, you will receive a description of the family in English.



Accomodation - Spanish host families

Arrival:  Families are not required to pick you up from the airport. You can book an airport transfer through Estudio Sampere. You must arrive at the family by 11 o'clock in the evening. If delayed, please telephone the family to let them know.

Location: Most of our families are located not far from the school. Walking distance is usually 20-25 minutes. Public transport (subway or bus) normally takes about 15 minutes. In Madrid, a journey of 30 minutes on public transport is possible.

Minimum stay: The minimum stay in a family is one week. You can request extra nights at a supplement. Three or more extra nights are treated as an extra week.

Room type:  Most students book a single room. Students under 25 years can book double rooms.

Meals: Breakfast is a light meal in Spain, consisting of coffee and biscuits or bread. Lunch is the main meal for many Spaniards and is taken between 1.30 and 3pm. Dinner is usually tortilla, cold meats, salads, sandwiches, etc., and is taken between 8 and 10pm. The following meal plans are possible in family accommodation:

  • Half-board: breakfast and dinner, Monday to Friday and all meals on weekends.
  • Full-board: breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days per week.

Changing your family: If you are not happy with your family, speak to the school director in your first week. We will offer you three alternative families, which you can visit before choosing one. We do not charge a fee for changing families in the first week.
