The host family is in the countryside on the edge of Cambridge about 20 minutes drive from City Center which
has many language schools. The house is modern with good facilities. The boys are at school and require
drop off and collecting on some school days. The bus station is 5-10 minutes walk from the house so there
is no need to drive. As stated by the host family, they are a warm and caring family and will treat the au pair as part of our family, yet
still preserving au pair's personal space and time to pursue au pair's own interests.
