Accommodation and host families

Your accommodation is a really important part of your experience when studying here in Valencia. The best way to truly experience local culture and Spanish hospitality is to stay with our trusted host families. We have two members of staff dedicated to visiting and ensuring the quality of our home stays. Their primary objective is to make your stay as welcoming and comfortable as possible.

We only use host family accommodation that is either directly in the area near the school or conveniently connected via public transport. CSS strives to build strong relationships within the community and with all our host families.

All host families are vetted by the Spanish police (similar to the Garda vetting procedure in Ireland).

Full board is provided with breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal with an emphasis on a nutritious Mediterranean diet. It is important to us that students at CSS become members of the family during their stay. We want you to fit into normal family life here in Spain. Whether it be socialising with family members, eating meals, general conversation or watching some Spanish telenovelas (soap operas), we are confident this aspect of the course will be hugely beneficial in terms of language learning and cultural awareness. We also ensure that all host families have internet so you can stay connected with family members back in Ireland during your stay. Valencian people are famed for their warm welcoming nature and genuine hospitality, and we are confident this will be an excellent aspect to any young learner’s experience.
