Me and my daughter live in Southern Spain. We have an apartment in a small village, it is inland but only a 15 minute bike ride to the beach and the port. In 2 minutes you can walk to the local shops and restaurants and within 10 minutes walk you are in the next village with further villages and more facilities within a 15-20 minute bike ride. We both enjoy spending as much time in the outdoors as possible; camping, hiking and cycling.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We are based in a Spanish village, so there is the opportunity to observe village life and practice your Spanish.
I love spending time with my daughter, but as a single mum at the moment I do not have much down time. During the day I will be at work and my daughter will be at school (approx. 8am to 5:30pm), so your day would be free.
Ideally you would help me in the evenings with cooking food (we are vegetarian, although I'm happy to buy meat for you) and my daughters reading.
I would like to be able to go to the gym a few evenings a week. Also I would like to go out roughly once a week to socialise with my friends, by this I mean having someone in the house whilst my daughter is sleeping. The chance to have some time off during the weekend too would be amazing, but again everything is flexible.
A big sister volunteer is preferred.
A single bed in the small spare room within our three bedroom apartment. You will be welcome to help yourself to any food in the house. You can use my bike to get around.
The village has a bus route that goes along the coast and to Gibraltar. There are many interesting places to visit.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Flexible; but roughly 4 hours a day
