  • Description



    We are a fun, loving, brazilian spanish mixed family of five members: Oscar and Estela, in our 30's, our two lovely girls Laura (10 years), Valeria (4 years) and Estelas mother Elba. Oscar works in a hospital in maintenance and Stella is working as a nursing assistant. Moreover our family consists of some chickens and three dogs. Oscar calls them lovingly horses due to their height. But don't be scared: they have their own space in the garden and they are getting enough food ;).

    One year ago we bought a lovely house with a big garden. It contains an outdoor barbecue and a nice pool. So you can spend amazing summer nights in the outside.

    Our home is just 9 kilometers away from Tarragona. It's a World Heritage city with lots of Roman monuments to discover. In addition to that you also have the opportunity to relax at the beautiful beaches or to grab a drink at one of the many bars. You can easily and cheap reach Tarragona with a bus at the station Camp de Tarragona. It is about 4 kilometres away from our home and there is no problem in driving you there or picking you up.
    After you have seen most of the beautiful spots in Tarragona you can easily travel to Barcelona by train. There you can have a little adventure in a mix of sightseeing and partying. ;)

    One thing is guaranteed: You will always be entertained. Whether it is listening to music while walking with Elba and the kids to the supermarket, swinging your hips with Estela to brazilian music, competing in a duel of arm-pressing against Oscar or dancing with the kids to Just Dance. :)

    We are looking for female workaways only please!
