Hi, I am one of the members of a family of five. My partner, Raquel (46), my three children aged 2, 8 and 11 years and me, Juanma (47). We live in a very little town called Fresnedillas de la Oliva, in the community of Madrid. It is a very nice town with lots of young people and many children because it has several very cool schools with fairly good educational projects. It is 55km far from Madrid.
A cordial greeting, see you soon.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The benefit is to live with a family in a natural environment, sharing daily experiences, improving their knowledge of the Spanish culture and visiting the main cities at the centre of the country. We can offer some help to get access to transport and culture events during their stay at home.
About the language: We are looking for workawayers whose mother tongue is English, to enrich our children and the adults too, and at the same time we do cultural exchange. We would accept non English native speakers, but with fluency in English.
About the help: We will mainly ask you to help us with the house (cleaning) and cooking. We expect also to share daily life together, trying to have lunch and dinner all together with English as the only language spoken.
This host offers a language exchange
We aren´t interested in sharing Spanish.
We offer accommodation in a separate house with a garden. Single big room with one double bed and two single beds, with bathroom, also include the maintenance breakfast, lunch and dinner. Internet connection.
It is a village of about 1400 inhabitants located in the northwest mountains of Madrid about 50 kilometers from the capital. It has buses every day and very regularly from morning to night, it takes about 50 minutes to get from the capital to the town and vice versa.
We prefer not hosting people interested in learning the Spanish language, because we want English as the only language spoken at home during their stay.
We have a piano, an acoustic guitar, a cajón flamenco, a drum equip and four microphones to play music.
We live with two cats and six hens which provide us with eggs every day.
We can introduce workawayers to the chat to get free car to the city.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Our internet connection works really fast.
There is a place in our garden but it is not very bright there. Next to our outside door there are some space also to park a motorhome. None of them are very beautiful spaces, but the second one has more light and a little public garden just next to it.
