Hi! We are a French family with 4 children (14 to 6) who has landed in Porto after 3 years sailing around the Atlantic. We would love to exchange some space on our boat and freedom to explore Porto and its surfing and cultural opportunities with your help on daily chores and English at home. We look forward to share and learn from you!
>> 3-months stay minimum, 6 months ideally, the longer the better!

We are travellers and have been living abroad for the past 15 years (Latin America, West Africa, Eastern Europe etc...). Most recently we have been sailing 3 years around the Atlantic, and have now settled in Porto to finally put children at school and get back to work. We are eager to learn more about your past and future experiences!
Looking for a savvy au-pair, starting early January and *committed* for minimum 3 to 6 months
We need help for the day-to-day life of a family, particularly the after-school hours: picking children up from school, helping them with homework and music practice, taking care of bath & dinner, and some housekeeping (laundry, keep the house clean & tidy). Help is needed from 3pm to 8pm during weekdays Week-ends would be freetime. We would particularly want you to speak exclusively native English to the children.
My older daughter (14) is abroad at boarding school and would be at home only during school holidays. The other 3 children are boys, 11yo, 9yo and 6yo.
If you are smart and resourceful with kids, with a gentle sense of authority, if you are a creative cook and not scared by unglamorous tasks and a noisy household, then I'm sure you'll be rewarded by feeling part of our family!
We now live in a flat right next to our boat which would be your home (5mn by foot). Proof-tested, all 6 of us lived in there for 3 years! All amenities available including wifi, heating, your own kitchen and galley to yourself, + marina amenities with hot water-shower. You'll have your own cabin & share the galley only when we host guests. The marina is located in Leixões - Leça da Palmeira north of Porto, close to a stunning beach with surf or kite-surf or bodyboard opportunities. Public transportation is 15mn by foot and brings you downtown in about 30mn.
