  • Description


    We are a French-speaking family with 2 children (6 year old boy and 4 year old girl). We live in the beautiful and charming city of Porto, our kids go to the French school and we also speak English.

    We really enjoy meeting different cultures and exchanging with persons having diverse life projects, and appreciate having an extra hand with the day to day logistics and support with kids (cleaning, feeding the kids, bab sitting, housekeeping). Help will be needed sometimes in the morning and end afternoons to pick up the kids at school, play with them and help out at home.

    The ideal person can stay a minimum of 2 months, loves to fool around with kids, can drive and likes to help us keep the apartment clean and tidy.

    We have travelled extensively before having children and thus like multi-cultural environments and speak several foreign languages.


    Nous sommes une famille avec 2 enfants (6 ans et 4 ans) et habitons dans la belle ville de Porto. Les enfants vont à l'école française de Porto et nous parlons parfaitement anglais.

    Nous aimons partager le quotidien avec une Workaway pour nous aider à gérer la logistique des enfants et de la maison. Nous avons besoin d'un coup de main efficace pour les enfants, le rangement et le ménage.

    La personne idéale peut rester avec nous minimum 2 mois, aime s'amuser avec les enfants, sait conduire et apprécie de garder une maison propre et rangée.

    Nous sommes une famille pleine de joie et de bonne humeur, et adorons la diversité, le sport et la musique.

    We are looking for someone to help us with the day to day life as well as support with kids (cleaning, meals, baby sitting). We would like to have you stay over minimum 2 months if possible.
    Both kids go to school thus we would need some help to get them ready in the morning and end afternoons; there is also some cooking and cleaning to do in the house and washing machines to do.

    Thanks in advance!

    You will also have a lot of time OFF during day time and evenings, thus living with us in the center of Porto is ideal. The seaside is also very close by (by bicycle or metro).
