Escuela Albufera allows guests to get chatty in a location close to a verdant national park, pristine sandy beaches, and the culturally rich city of Valencia.

 

The Accommodation

These quaint wooden bungalows, equipped with a kitchen, bathroom and living area, keep guests feeling at one with the Albufera National Park. Guests can get online between study with complimentary Wi-Fi, or chill out by one of the two pools on-site. The beach is around a ten-minute stroll away, while the city of Valencia is about 30 minutes by bus.

 

The Lessons

Students will begin with a test to assess their current language levels, before taking to the classroom for basic, intermediate, or advanced classes. Rustic rooms house no more than 10 students, and the international team of tutors strive to get chatterboxes practicing when they're out and about.



Guests also have the chance to work on their kitchen skills as they learn to cook a traditional paella, while a weekly guided tour of Valencia adds some cultural spice. The tours include a choice of attractions, including entry to museums, the Las Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias or Biopark zoo, or a taste of tapeo in the city centre. Those sticking around for two or three weeks can choose a different tour each time. In between, each visitor will have access to hire bikes, which will allow them to explore at their own pace.
