Who we are

  1. We both are biologists, Jon (46) working at the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Agriculture and Maria (45) professor at Seville University. We have two well educated children, Miguel (17) and Sara (15) who enjoy travelling and knowing other cultures. We all like sports and do not smoke. We live in Seville, and have this second house, refurbished with love and effort, where we enjoy big family gatherings. We’ve had a first exchange experience and liked the experience, so we want to repeat. E-mail us!

Fuente del Arco is a small (700 friendly inhabitants) village in a rural area surrounded by olive groves and scattered holm oak landscape with cereal cropland, in the first slopes of Sierra Morena. It is a nice place, with nice people, ideal for those seeking quietness. Within 30-minute driving distance are up to 20 villages with their own charm, monuments and local summer festivals, and many bars with particular "tapas".
