We would be more than glad to welcome a workawayer at home who could give us a hand looking after our two lovely little girls (4 and 7 years old), and doing some housework.
We live in the north of Spain, in the region of Cantabria, in a beautiful little village called Novales, 3 km away from the nearest beach (Cóbreces). This is a lovely area if you like surfing, trekking...
My husband and I are language teachers. We speak English and French and we normally speak English to the girls. We would also like you to speak Engish to them! We will be very pleased to help you with your Spanish.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!

You will be welcome as another member of the family. We will do our best so that we all have an excellent experience.
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You would mainly look after the kids: play with them, take them to the park, etc. We would like someone active and playful who enjoys spending time with the children. It's important for us that you talk to them in English. Guiomar is fluent in English but Valentina, the little one, is a little bit lazy and although she understands perfectly, she tries to answer back in Spanish... And it would be lovely if you can babysit one evening per week so that Alex and I can go out for dinner ;-)
You would also help us with some housework. We would appreciate someone proactive who understands what living in a family means in terms of cooperation (basic things like laying and clearing the table, tidying up...) without us having to tell what to do all the time...
We live in a lovely house with a big garden, located in a beautiful village in the countryside and very near the beach. We can offer you a lovely double bedroom of your own and a nice bathroom that you would share with the girls.
We have a cat at home: Bimba, another member of the family, and three more outside in the garden!
