Mi name is Rosa, born and bred in Andalusia, and I have been renting out rooms in my house for twenty years, which has given me the opportunity to get to know people from all around the world and from many different cultures.
I love speaking to people from other countries and as I studied Spanish language and literature at the University of Seville I enjoy helping them improve their language skills and seeing how they progress during their stay with me. I also speak some English and French.
My guests quickly feel at home here and some have become good friends with whom I still have contact to this day. They come back again and again. During their stay many appreciate going out with me and my circle of friends - shopping, for 'tapas', to bars and cafes, or for nocturnal visits to clubs and discos. There are also opportunities to go on excursions at weekends, to the mountains or to the beach, and many visitors have also taken part in language exchanges - you arrange to meet a local person and spend half your time speaking Spanish and half your own maternal language: English is very popular of course. You cn see what some of my guests have said about their stay on the recommendations page of my site Rosa's Homestay in Granada.
I look forward to seeing you soon in my - or shoud I say 'our'? - house.
Simon is my best friend. [SEE PHOTO 2.] He's British-English and he has lived in Granada for twenty years so he knows the city better than most local people. He is fascinated by local history and is particularly knowledgeable about the local poet Federico Garcia Lorca. He is happy to share his knowledge and interest with like-minded people. His Spanish is fluent, as is his German. He lived in Aachen for many years before he came to Spain.
