Area: rochaWe are 3 young friends, that are planting vegetables to sell in Punta del Diablo during the summer. We have had lots of great workawayers over the few months, with whom we have had lots of fun, learned a lot (German: da ist ein Affe im Baum) and talked rubbish. Unfortunately we are not harvesting any crops but we would still like to have you around! To make this happen, we have to charge a small daily fee (350 pesos) to cover the costs of the house. This means that you don’t need to work. However, between all of us we run the household, including cooking meals and stuff like that. We do all these things together and have a great time doing it! Part of the food comes from a local organic farm or our own garden, so lots of veggies but don’t worry for those of you who like meat, we are Uruguayans at heart and love a good asado. Note that basic food is included in the fee but additional food and drinks (asado, chiken, fish, wine, beer, coke) are split the cost between all of us. And of course, if we find new jobs to do, and you are keen on doing them, you can work for accommodation and food as it used to be.
Area: Madrid / ToledoHi, I (Patricia) live with my hunsband (Roberto) and our 11 months old baby (Rober). We´ve traveled through workaway (WE ARE WORKEAYERS as well) and have discovered that it´s a good way to travel,learn new things, and meet interesting people. Nowadays with the baby travelling is more dificult, so we thought that it could be fine to travel at home, I mean, if we can not travel, that trips come to us. Our house is in ILLESCAS, a village close to Madrid and Toledo, just in the middle of them(35km from Madrid and the same to Toledo), so you could visit 2 of the most important citys in Spain. There are several photos about these citys in my profile, they´re nice, aren´t they?.There are some buses (15-20 minutes walking from our house) each 30 minutes to both cities and trips takes 40 minutes. Principally we´re looking for someone more or less as an Au Pair, someone that play with the baby in English and who we can speak in English with as well. She/he would be as other member of our family, so should help to us with the houses routine (simple things as tidy the kitchen after the meals, clean her/his bedroom, ....). So please, we don´t like a cheeky person, I mean, people that think that this is a hotel because in the same way that we´re going to treat you as a friend, we hope that you behave as such. I say that because I had a not very good experience in this point and I don´t want that this reapeats again. My hundsband goes to Madrid every days, so if you want to do some course in the capital, you could go with him. The baby comes back to the nursery around 3.30, so it would be in the afternoon when we need your help. But don´t worry, we´re not strict, if you want to travel some day, or stay in Madrid more time, you´ll be able to. We´re very dinamic and love learning things so we´d like to learn whatever you could teach us. Topics I´m interested in are, cooking, economy, sociology, science, tennis, geography, ...... If you think that you could be the person that we´re looking for (you like teaching, like babies, are sociable....), and are interested by known the center of Spain don´t hesitate write us. We prefer native english speakers and if we could visit your area later, it would be really perfect. We don´t smoke nor drink alcohol. "SWAPPING WORKAWAY". If you´re a family similar to our and are interested by knowing one tipical spanish family,our stile of life and our area, you could come to live with us around one week and we could go to live with you another one. It´s very dificult to find a hoster beeing a family and for that reason I think that swapping is a good way to do it since I hope that there are families that want to do the same than us. We´ve done in several ocasion and it´s very very interesting. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I hope that we´re the family that you´re looking for and you´re the person that we need.

Area: Eastern LiguriaHi! Our "family" is made up of Franco and me (Martina), plus our friend Pippo who is always cooking fantastic typical italian food for us (and for you)! We have a lively bed&breakfast in the countryside (700 m above sea level) in a beautiful, wild place in the Province of Genoa. We are at the foot of the highest peaks of ligurian appennines (Parco Naturale dell'Aveto) and still very close to the seaside (about 1/2 hour to reach Chiavari; Portofino, Genoa and Cinque Terre take about an hour to go).
