Family Home in York, Great Britain

This is a lovely area to be based in - there is so much to do! The town of York is very beautiful with the old cathedral, narrow medieval streets and old houses but with modern shops and cafés too. Not far away is beautiful countryside for all sorts of activities - hiking, picnics, horse riding, mountain biking - and national parks. We are on the direct train line to London and Edinburgh and we live not far from the city centre. We have a lovely small garden and our house (150m²) is cosy and we have a big new kitchen.We have had several successful exchanges and everyone seems happy with our home and city. We hope you will discover it too! (EN/FR/ES/IT/DE)

Dans notre belle région il y a tant de choses à faire! On peut flâner dans les ruelles médiévales de la vieille ville de York entouré de vieux bâtiments qui abritent des magasins et cafés modernes. On peut visiter les musées et la cathédral et se promener sur les murs médiévaux. La campagne sauvage n'est pas très loin et on peut faire des randonnées, des pique-niques, de l'équitation, du VTT ... dans des parcs naturels. York est bien desservi par les chemins de fer et on arrive à Londres en deux heures et à Edimbourg en deux heures et demi. Nous habitons à 2 km du centre-ville et à 3 km de la gare dans un faubourg résidentiel. Nous avons une assez grande maison (150m²) et un joli jardin privé. Il y a deux possibilités principales pour faire l'école de langue anglaise pendant votre séjour: The English Language School (http://www.experienceenglish.com/our-schools/york) et English in York (http://www.english-in-york.co.uk/).

En esta region muy hermosa hay mucho que hacer. En el centro histórico de la ciudad de York se puede pasear por las pequenas calles y los callejones rodeados por una muralla medieval y descubrir los museos y la catedral. El campo no está muy lejos y se puede ir de picnic o hacer senderismo o rutas en bicicleta en los parques naturales. Hay muchos pequenos pueblos tradicionales y una costa (a 60 km) que descubrir. Tenemos una casa bastante grande (150m²) con un jardín privado muy bonito. York es una ciudad bien conectada por los ferrocarriles y se llega a Londres en dos horas y a Edimburgo en dos horas y media. Nuestra ciudad ofrece también dos escuelas principales de lengua inglesa: The English Language School (http://www.experienceenglish.com/our-schools/york) y English in York (http://www.english-in-york.co.uk/)

Nella nostra bella regione ci sono tante cose da fare:  nel centro storico di York a 2 km della casa c’è una catedrale storica e numerosi musei (soprattutto storici, presentati molto bene), e si può fare passeggiate nelle piccole strade medievali dove si trovano ristoranti e negozi moderni in edifici storici. La bella campagna ed i parchi nazionali non sono lontani e si può fare escursioni a piedi, andare a fare un picnic o fare mountain bike. La campagna selvaggia e tipica inglese è completamente diversa dalla campagna del sud dell'Europa e inoltre siamo a solo 60 km dal mare (falesie bellissime, paesi di pescatori/città di villeggiatura nei tempi passati, ora più calmo, da vedere). La stazione ferroviaria di York è sulla linea diretta fra Londra (due ore) e Edimburgo (due ore e mezzo). Abbiamo una casa abbastanza grande (150m²) con un bel giardino privato. La nostra città ha due scuole principali di lingua inglese: The English Language School (http://www.experienceenglish.com/our-schools/york) e English in York (http://www.english-in-york.co.uk/)

In unserer schönen Gegend gibt es so viel zu tun! York hat eine ganz schöne, historische Innenstadt mit einer Kathedrale, verschiedenen Museen und kleinen mittelalterlichen Straßen, wo alte Gebäude moderne Läden und Lokale beherbergen. Die wilden und vielfältigen nordenglischen Landschaften (Heide, Küste, kleine Berge) sind nicht weit und man kann wandern gehen und die typisch englischen charaktervollen Dörfer entdecken. Wir sind nur 60 km vom Meer und mit der Bahn kommt man in 2 Stunden nach London und 2.5 Stunden nach Edinburgh. Wir haben ein ziemlich großes Haus (150m²) mit einem sehr grünen und privaten Garten. Es gibt hauptsächlich zwei Möglichkeiten für einen Englischkurs in der Stadt: The English Language School (http://www.experienceenglish.com/our-schools/york) und English in York (http://www.english-in-york.co.uk/).

Il nostro quartiere

Aeroporto più vicino: Leeds Bradford or Manchester - 1 hour to Leeds, 2 hours Manchester

Our area is a suburb of York, 2 km from the very centre. We use bicycles which we can leave for you. It's a very typical British suburb with trees and houses with gardens, quiet but on a bus route. The bus stop is nearby. The neighbours are friendly and there are little local shops.

Circa la nostra famiglia

We are a family of 4. Ted and Chris are recently retired teachers of Art and Languages. Oscar is 27 and studying in Geneva and Lily is 25 and lives and works north of Barcelona. Maybe one of them will come with us when we travel but usually not. We love the outdoors,Ted cycles and Chris plays tennis. We all walk in the countryside and love the beach. We like art, history and languages, big cities and the countryside. We like to travel and get to know people and we are not fussy people. We have done 16 exchanges very successfully. We do not use the car on holiday and use trains to get to our destination so we need to go somewhere there is good public transport. We are very open to go to new places and we are very flexible with dates.
