  • Description


    We're Laura and Uri, and our kids: Bruna (9 y.o.) and Gael (4 y.o.). We live in El Masnou, a small village next to the beach and well connected to Barcelona (only 25 minutes to the city center by train/car).

    We like to share our house and our day to day with foreign people. For us is like travelling and meeting new cultures and languages without moving from home. We are Couchsurfing members since 2007 and Workaway and HelpX members as a host since 2013. We would prefer to have references of you.

    We try to buy organic food from local farmers as far as possible. Uri is vegetarian (not Laura and the kids). During weekdays we are very, very, very busy with work so it's nice to have help with the kids and the houseworks. On weekends and holidays we love to play with our children and always we can we go to the mountains.

    We would like to share with you our culture and experience. We can teach you to speak some Catalan or Spanish, how to cook a paella, and maybe we can take you to rock climb in Montserrat :) In exchange we would like to practice english everyday (or other languages) and to know more about your culture and experience in life.

  • Help


    We are looking for different kinds of help (you can apply just for one):
    - babysitting, cooking and some housework (playing with the kids, speaking to them in english or french and preparing
    the dinner and some cleaning help)
    - help in our family business: an online shop and blog (about travel and going to the mountain with kids). We need some help in copywriting, SEO, Community Management, Google Adwords...
    - French classes for our daughter Bruna (one or two times per week and then play with her one hour some days and speak to her in french always :)
    - painting tasks, maintenance and restoration
    For us the best is someone who can stay at least 3 weeks with us (or more). The help will be around 20 hours/week only from Monday to Friday, so you’ll have plenty of time.
