  • Description


    We're Laura (39) and Uri (39), Bruna (9) and Gael (4). 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 members of other volunteer networking platforms and we would prefer to have references of you.

    During weekdays we are very, very, very busy with work so it's nice to have help with the kids and the some houseworks. On weekends and holidays we love to play with our children and we use to go to the mountains with our campervan.

    Some things you must know about us:
    - We have a cat
    - We speak Catalan at home, with our friends and family (we can also speak Spanish but is not ours first language)
    - Uri is vegetarian (not Laura and the kids)

    We can host if you can helps us with the kids in the afternoons-evenings (after school) and with some housework. You should like to play with the kids, speaking to them in ENGLISH or french and maybe someday cooking something if we are busy.
    You can also help us:
    - With our online blog (about travel and going to the mountain with kids). We need some help in copywriting, SEO, Community Management, Google Adwords...
    - Language or music classes
    - 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.
