We are a couple of teachers who love travelling. We live in Figueres. It is a small capital city with 40.000 inhabitants, known for its Dali museum. It is 20 minutes to the beach and 1 hour to Barcelona, 30 minutes to Girona. Our house is in the centre of the city and just a 2 minutes to the train station.

A 100 meters house with an external patio, 3 bedrooms, a dining-room, kitchen, a living room and a toilet.
