We are a family of 5 who already hosted workawayers /aupairs in the past and are very happy with the experience (a couple of them repeated the experience). We live in in a house that used to be a farmhouse, in the countryside+seaside. We would like to have help with our kids (bring them to school & pick them up). At lunch time I'm at home because I work from home (3 days/week, I'm a researcher and my husband is a landscaper). My husband finishes work at 15pm and can pick them up but it's always nice to have some help around:) Our kids are 8yo, 6yo and 3yo and speak English very well (well, the little one understands it but replies whatever she wants...LOL, but there isn't any problem of communication). We offer a complete single room and all house services and food and supplies, also access to the garden and swimming pool (when the weather is smooth). We also have a kayak for your free time if you want to go to the Mediterranean see, which is very nice. Or you could also swim /surf.. etc. We are willing to host a nice person who aims to experience our lifestyle and Catalan culture, learn some of our recipes, and enjoy altogether being part of a big family. Although we the parents have busy schedules, and plenty of work, we try that our kids breath a calm lifestyle and enjoy as maximum as they can: they go walking to school, pick up some flowers, sing a song altogether... and then when they come back home we wish them to simply have a relax afternoon at the garden or inside the house. They love singing, playing Lego, doing puzzles, painting, etc. If you wish to learn about gardening you can grow your own vegetables and flowers, we can teach you about it and you will have plenty of space for yourself. We have hens, pigeons and a dog and we are always doing little projects on the weekends so you can join us, for instance we can be at our warehouse putting all the tools in order, or building a little house to play with kids, or renewing the hens place... but also if you prefer you can have your free time on weekends of course. If you are working freelance online, you can have your time to continue with your activities. Thanks for asking us whatever information you'd like to know!
