Need to know where to stay while studying Spanish?

SANTA BARBARA school offers different lodging options where you will feel safe, comfortable and happy during your stay.
Our accommodation staff will provide thorough assistance.

As far as host families are concerned, the Santa Barbara Spanish School is a pioneer in offering host families from our own educational centre, that is to say, foreign students have the possibility of staying with the families of our school’s students, both in Secondary and High School. In this way, foreign students live with a Spanish family, where there are Spanish students of the same age, with the same concerns, and this circumstance greatly favours linguistic, social and cultural immersion.

Homestay Living with a host family from Madrid has two major advantages.
First, it is the best way to live the Spanish culture and see what daily life for a native Spanish person is like.
Secondly, our host families will speak in Spanish 100% of the time, which will help you practice the skills you’re working on in Spanish classes in a real context.

Enjoy an unforgettable experience living with a host family. You will have the privacy of your own room, but share and interact in the Spanish culture while practicing Spanish with your hosts.

  • The price includes: Wifi , bedding , blankets, meals and laundry once a week ( 90% of our host families offer packed lunches rather than eat at home).
  • Double room: Shared with another student from Santa Barbara, the same sex. If you book a double room and there is no other student, you have the right to change at any time.
  • Private bathroom in a double room: The private bathroom is shared with the roommate (only for students traveling together).
