  • Description


    I am a mother of 2 wonderful kids (a 8yo boy and a 4yo girl). We live in front of the sea, 30 min away from Barcelona (train station at 5 min walk). We can see the palm trees from our sofa!

    We are an international family, as my boy was born in France, my girl in Scotland and their father is Italian. Even if I am originally from Barcelona, I have lived in 5 different countries for 20 years and came back to the area 2 years ago.

    As a family we are very engaged in our kids education: our boy has attended a Montessori farm nursery in Italy, a free-play nursery in Scotland and now a learning community in Mataró (Barcelona). We have also done 1 year of unschooling. I am looking for someone who speaks English as first language and who enjoys spending time with kids, who is open and creative. The person should love cooking (varied and healthy) and tidying up the house. So house+cooking+kids would be your chores :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a freelance translator and language teacher. We speak different languages at home, mostly Italian. I love exchanging with people from different places and have lots of international friends. My kids are very open and love travelling.

    Being in front of the beach in a wonderful and easy city at just 30 min from Barcelona, there are plenty of activities to do! Trains and buses run every 10 min.

  • Help


    With the new Corona-situation it is hard to predict what will happen, but schools will most likely remain closed until September. All my work is now online so I would need help around the house and with the kids, 4 hours a day, flexible (mainly mornings), from Monday to Friday.
