  • Description

    Description

    We live in a house in Bescanó (Girona), near to Barcelona and Costa Brava. We are Balta and Anna, we are parents of two children. Julià is 6 years old and he is really sweet and funny. Bruna is 3 years and half and she is smiling and affectionate.

    We live in a small town with a beautiful views, pretty near to the Girona city (a 15 minute by car, 15 minutes by bus and 30 minutes by bike) and close to nature. In our opinion it is a well located place, one hour from the coast Costa Brava, the mountains and Barcelona (45 minuts by train).

    Balta in his freetime likes to go running for mountains and he practise human tower (a Catalonia’s tradition cultural). Anna is a active person who likes doing all things but now she is working a fulltime and take care his children and she wants to practice more sport but she is not able to find enough free time. As you can see, we have different hobbies, but we also spend a lot of time together going for walks, enjoying the nature and doing a human tower in the weekend.

    We are Balta and Anna, we are around 36 years old and Balta is as a shopkeeper and I am a high school teacher. We are proud parents of two children. Julià is six years old and he is really sweet and funny. Bruna is three years and half and she is smiling and affectionate.
    We need an au pair to start from mid-september to mid-december for 4 days a week. (from monday to thursday). The others days are free time. We have decided to find an au pair because we are interested in languages, and our first priority is that Julià and Bruna starts to learn English with a native speaker and we also want to practice some English to become more fluent. We are also looking for someone who loves children, who is friendly, out-going and chatty. She will look after Julià and Bruna and do light housework such as prepare children meals, help their tidy up her room,. ..We also want to focus on Julià and Bruna learning, habits and development in general.

    We also need a girl who takes the children to school in the morning and will pick them up for lunch at home. (we think it's the time that you'll be with our children).

    We don’t know what your hobbies and interests are, but the place where we live there are a lot of things to do. We will be pleased to help you to feel comfortable as much as we can.

    You will have your own bedroom and free 3 days a week (friday to Sunday). Some aspects like experience and studies will be considered. We want a non-smoker.
