    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live very close to the coast about 5km away, in a quiet town called Hinojedo. At 200 meters from our house there is a bus stop, with buses to the beach every hour. Surfing is very popular in our area, there are several surf schools nearby. And a coastal-tourist town with shops, restaurants, bars, swimming pool, hotels ... etc called Suances. The capital of our region, Santander, is about 20km and is also connected by bus from our village. We have bicycles you can borrow, and there is a bike path that leads to the beach.
    If you like to walk or hike there are also many marked routes around.

    Looking for childcare for July, to speak English. Please only contact us for these dates and if you are available for the whole month.
    Someone at least 20 years old or over preferred.

    During the month of July we work in the family business only in the mornings, and we need a person to look after our daughters: wake them up, give breakfast, dress them, play games, read stories, take advantage of the garden to play with them until Lunch-time. The hours are from 08 to 13 approximately Monday to Friday. You will be free on the weekends and afternoons. Only some light cleaning and cooking required”
    The girls are very good children and easy to look after. My brother lives with his family in the house next to ours and my parents live on the other side.
