Hi! We are a French family with 4 children (13 to 5) who has just 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!

Help in the house
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!
EDIT Jan 26th: Looking now for March!
We need help for the day-to-day life of a family, particularly the after-school hours: picking children up from school, kids bath & dinner, some housekeeping (laundry, cleaning), and if you like cooking, I'd be very glad to be relieved in the evening! Help is needed from about 2pm to 8pm during weekdays (flexible 5h). Week-ends would be freetime. We would particularly want you to speak exclusively native English to the children.
If you are smart and resourceful with kids, if you are a creative cook and not scared by unglamorous tasks, 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 hot water-shower. 3-cabins & shared space only when we have friends visiting. The marina is located in Leixoes - Leça da Palmeira north of Porto, close to a stunning beach with surf or kite-surf or body-board opportunities. Public transportation is 15mn by foot and brings you downtown in about 30mn.
