  • Description


    We are a couple in our late forty with an nine-year-old son.
    We live in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, ten kilometres from Barcelona. It’s very well connected to Barcelona by train (30 minutes to Plaça Catalunya), bus (25 minutes to Plaça Francesc Macià or PLaça Espanya) and tram (35 minutes to Plaça Francesc Macià).

    Our home is a really comfortable house with two floors and a garden. We work at home, so in the ground floor we have our office, the sitting room, the kitchen and the room and a bathroom you will use on your own. In the first floor there are the others bedrooms and another bathroom.
    The garden is a bit little but enough to have lunch and dinner during the spring and summer (we enjoy a lot to be out). And have a kitchen garden with tomatoes, lettuces, pumpkins and peppers. My mother-in-law lives in front of us and we share the garden.

    All the meals are with the family, if it runs with your schedule.

    We have a little poodle 10 years-old and three wonderful fishes.

    I take care of my house and I want that the workawayer keep his room and bathroom clean and tidy. And she/he has to be respectful with the rules.

    I did a workaway exchange in a horse-farm in Ireland during 1 month and it was a great experience and I want to offer this possibility to other people around the world.

    I’m looking for an easy-going person, with abilities to manage with kids. In July, my son is going to a summer camp from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
    The help required is going to pick up the boy at the summer camp (all the month of July) and expend the rest of the afternoon - until 8pm- with him speaking in English. You can go to play into a playground, cycle, play tennis or what ever you want. For me the most important is that my son have fun with you.
    The workaway must have English as a mother tongue, my son is scholared into an English school, so he has a good level of English. Better than mine!!

    And what ever you want to help in the house or garden, it will be wellcome!!!

    If you are a boy don’t hesitate to value my offer, I think that it will be a good thing for my son…actually a lot of women around him!!!

    I also want to improve my English…..so I will speak in that language while my husband will speak in Spanish if you want to practice.
    So, I think it’s a perfect exchange for someone who wants study or work in the mornings and feel a really Spanish life during the stay.

    You have to be really interested in our culture, including meals and habits.
