We are a family of four. Our names are Paola, aged 32, Víctor, aged 41, Gael, aged 4 and Noé, aged 2. We have a youg dog too named Fuga. We are easygoing people and like to meet new people.
We live in the countryside three Km from the beautiful andalusian village of Vélez-Blanco. We are surrounded by beautiful nature, 1 hour from the mediterrenean beaches and 1,5 hours from the famous city of Granada.
Victor is a guitar teacher at the conservatory of music in Vélez-Rubio and Paola is a guitarist too, so all of us like very much music.
We speak in Spanish and French with the children.
The help we need is mainly playing with the children in English, storytime, outside games, drawing... I will be with you most of the time.
We are looking for someone who enjoys being with and play with children, who is talkative, open-minded, smily and responsable.
We prefer a native English or American girl or someone with a high level in English because the workawayer must speak to our sons in English all the time.
We provide comfortable accomodation with our family in a private room with a beautiful balcony and bathroom.
During your spare time you will be free to do whatever you want, you can also travel if you wish it at weekends or stay with us. The timetable will be flexible for both the family and the person. Everything will be discussed in advance.
We are looking for a girl, very responsible, very organized, honest and someone who knows what it means to take care of children. Preferible with previous and similar experience.
We are looking forward to finding someone to share things from another culture.

Nestling at the foot of a rocky outcrop is the small whitewashed village of Vélez Blanco, 6km north of its neighbour, Velez Rubio.
The municipality of Vélez-Blanco forms part of the Sierra María-Los Vélez Natural Park and the Ruta de los Castillos (route of castles) through Andalucia. It is as popular a destination for lovers of rural tourism and sports as it is for lovers of culture and history.
The Castillo-Palacio (Renaissance Castle) that crowns the centre of the town is the main attraction, one of the jewels of the Spanish Renaissance. Constructed on top of the old Arab castle in the 16th Century, under order from the first Marqués de Los Vélez, and declared a National Historical Monument, it rises up above a rock more than 1000 metres tall, offering the most spectacular view of the surrounding area. Unfortunately, only the exterior has been preserved to this day as the interior was sold at the beginning of the 20th Century and today is on show at the Museum of Metropolitan Art in New York, US.
Other stand-out buildings include the Iglesia de Santiago Apóstol, from the 16th Century, which has some gothic elements to it, as well as Renaissance and Mudejar; The San Luis Convent, from the same century, with a plateresque door and a small mudejar tower; and the Fuente Caños de Caravaca, from the 18th Century.
Outside the centre of town there are various Arab watchtowers, as well as archaeological sites with cave paintings, many located in the Natural Park. Among them is the Cueva Ambrosio and the Cerro de las Canteras, from the Paleolithic and Neolithic times.
There is a lot to do in the Natural Park.
Lovers of hiking are able to choose between different signed routes, such as the Pinar de las Muellas, Sierra Larga or Solana del Maimón. However, the best way to know what´s on offer at the park is to get in touch with the Centro de Visitantes, Almacén del Trigo, which is on Marqués de Los Vélez avenue.
