In Vizcaya, half an hour from Bilbao. We offer immersion courses in a recently refurbished 19th century “caserio” style country house. The environment is both beautiful, with rooms elegantly furnished with antiques, and practical, with all rooms en suite and WiFi access. Situated close to the foot of the mountain of Sollube and the coastal towns of Bermeo and Bakio, there are lots of places to escape to for some exercise (from walking to surfing) if you choose to have breaks in your programme. If you are on a very intensive course and want to unwind quickly, you just need to challenge your English teacher to a game of Basque “pelota” across the road from the house. For more images of this luxurious “casa rural” see their website

In Andalusia, less than 2 hours from Madrid. We host small group courses in a luxury villa near Córdoba, which 1 hour 40 minutes from Madrid by AVE. This recently rebuilt villa comprises elegant en suite twin rooms around a solar heated swimming pool - a great place to refresh yourself between classes. In addition to the course materials, the fact that the villa is run by a British couple ensures an English language environment from the literature on the bookshelves to boardgames and DVDs. Please browse their website [http://www. andaluciauno .com] and be tempted to this wonderful villa to escape and focus on your English.
