  • Description


    Hi Workawayers! We are a family hosting volunteers for the last two years, and we are very happy with the experience! We are five: Maria (38), Eduard (35), Mar (11), Pere (8) and Om (6). We are settled 100km south from Barcelona, living in Almoster, a small countryside village 15km from Tarragona and the beach.
    We like to spend our leisure time going out for walks and making use of our natural surroundings.
    We are strongly committed with education: Maria is a teacher and Eduard is a mindfulness teacher for adults. Both we are also contributing to rise a primary school with renewed pedagogical view.
