  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple with 3 children (7, 4, 2), living and caring for a village church house. We love traveling, recently especially the kind of traveling possible with small kids. Speaking either English or Spanish (or Russian), we enjoy conversations spanning cultures and topics (we ourselves have lived in a number of places around the world).

    We welcome help either with garden/house work or child care, especially when it helps them develop new language skills (mainly interested in English, Spanish or Russian, but doesn't have to be native of course). We always have one room available for friendly visitors.

    If you feel like exploring genuine Czech countryside in an international-friendly ambient, come visit us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are both in our early 30s with decent experience of life abroad (US, Spain, Russia, ...) but also deeply rooted in our own Czech culture. My wife, a pharmacist by education, is a magician when it comes to cooking, but also a yogi, wise herbalist and ayurvedic healer. I am a high school teacher of English and Biology. Just by being here you may easily learn to mix herbal teas, make homemade shampoos and cosmetics, cook meals of traditional Czech cuisine or according to Ayurvedic recipes, play the piano, guitar or a number of exotic instruments, immerse in your Spanish or English through board games and deep conversations. Also, we will likely take you to many beautiful natural sights like caves, castles - we really like trips and always have extra seat in our car.

  • Help

    Help

    First and foremost, we need help with our youngest (2yo) girl, Nina. We're both working (part-time) and we love the idea that she could spend time in a creative and enriching company (better than sending her to preschool in our philosophy).

    We also welcome help with garden/house work and creative child care for our older kids (4 and 7), especially deepening their foreign language skills (mainly English at this point).

    What else ...

    We live in a region of genuine Czech countryside with very few tourists (almost none from abroad), but many beautiful natural and historical sights (castles, caves, medieval towns) are within a reasonable distance.
