  • Description


    We are an English family and we have lived in Spain for 14 years. We live in a very small village near Cangas de Onis in Asturias, Northern Spain. My name is Kate and I live with my 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter. I run a small travel company from my home office. My kids go to the local school. I would love some help with playing with the kids and around the house and garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a very beautiful area so ideal for people who like the outdoors. We speak English and Spanish. My children love being outdoors, looking after our chickens, painting, making things, cooking, learning to read. We have lots of friends here and could introduce a Workaway helper to lots of different experiences here. I spent a year volunterring as a Workaway in Australia and New Zealand many years ago and have travelled all over the world and enjoy meeting people. Would like my kids to meet people from different cultures and widen their horizons!

  • Accommodation


    Own private room in our 19th century house. Shared bathroom. It is a pretty ramshackle old house with a wood burning stove for heat! We have land, garden, horreo and balconies overlooking the PIcos de Europa mountains.

    The nearest town in Cangas de Onis 11km away - we have a bus at the bottom of the road and you are welcome to use my bike, but having a vehicle would be ideal here to get around.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Lots of outdoor activities, walking, cycling climbing, kayaking in and around the PIcos de Europa mountains. Local town with traditional market 15 min away by bus ( 5 min walk from house). Use of bike to get around too - 11 km to bigger town, 5 to large village. Spectacular beaches 35 minutes away.
