I stayed with Virginia from January-March while I was studying abroad in Madrid. From the start, she was very welcoming and kind. She and her family allowed me to eat dinner with them and practice my Spanish. There were many laughs and memories. Virginia helped to make my experience in Madrid wonderful. By the end, it truly felt like home. Unfortunately, I had to leave earlier than expected due to COVID-19. I would highly recommend Virginia if you are looking to live with a kind and welcoming family while studying abroad!
I stayed with Virginia and her lovely family for 3 months. Upon arrival I immediately felt at home. She always encouraged me to spend time with the family and made me feel welcome. Throughout my time in her home, we exchanged many laughs, recipes and great memories. She is a great host and I recommend her home to anyone traveling through Madrid.
The place where I lived 10 days : very comfortable and clean. Virginia is very busy but took Time each day to speak with me in spanish. Alexia, the teanager cooked with me and gave me corrections. I will keep a good memory if my visit if Madrid. Maryse
Virginia and her family were, from start to finish, charming, warm and friendly. They instantly made me feel at home and welcomed into their family. The apartment was bright, clean and had lots of space and the area is ideal; very close to Retirto park with lots of cafes and restaurants nearby and well connected to the rest of the city.
I had a pleasont stay at Virginias home. It was a really great time and I really enjoyed it a lot. I felt like a part of the family because they took a lot of care and tried to make me feel good at all.
I spent one month there and it was my greatest experience in life.
Thanks a lot Virginia!
Virginia is an amazing host and the children are great too! The apartment is in an excellent central location next to the Retiro park, and is very nice inside. Virginia was also very helpful with my Spanish. Thank you very much, I had a lovely stay!
My stay at Virginia 's was great. The room was ideally situated in the flat. Virginia is the ideal host! !very helpful and kind, her lovely children were very pleasant as well. The flat is ideally situated close to the magnificent park " el retiro" and close to the Prado, the great museum of Madrid. The area altogether was fantastic close to all shops and tubes. The historical center was wakable as well ... I could not recommend it more!!!
Pour mes compatriotes francais : vous vous sentirez chez vous dans le superbe appartement de Virginia. C est l'hote parfaite! L'appartement est idealement situe tout pres du parc "El Retiro", dans un quartier typique de Madrid, pres du metro mais egalement tout pres du centre historique. En bref, tout etait parfait!
