MOVING TO CATALONIA?

Hello, I am preparing to move to Catalonia with my 4 year old son and would greatly appreciate any feedback on location : my intent is to come spend some time "looking around", outside of Barcelona, but suggestions of specific places would be very helpful.
I am a single mother, in my early forties ; i would like to find a small town, reasonably affordable, up to 60-70kms from Barcelona, that is dynamic yet manageable (I am fed up with cities) and with good bilingual schools. I don't care if it is inland or on the sea, as I am more interested in having a garden than being by a crowded beach.
Also, as I currently live in Tangiers, if anyone is interested in a home exchange for a month or so in 2011 let me know and we can discuss possibilities.

Thank you

We are currently living in Sant Cugat del Valles about 30 kim norht of Barcelona. My daughter goes to an intenational school (Europa) that teaches in Spanish, Catalan and English. The public schools teach mostly in Catalan and would have be diffiuclt for her as she only knows English and Spanish. The town is great for families. My wife is part of the committee ar the school that assists foreign families with settling in so you can contact her with any questions. You may get some more information about the area from the following web sites below.

Thank you very much for your email and all the helpful links. My son does not speak Spanish, but I don't know how much of a problem that is at 4 years old.... he would learn it very quickly is my guess. I will look into the links you sent, and will probably contact your wife with more specific details as my research improves.

Thank you again,

Nihal

Take some time and get to know the zones of the city in a preview trip if you can.
