Hi, I,m Maria, we're a Spanish family, Maria and Josi with two daughters, Alejandra 9 years old and Noa is 5, and two cats. We live in Conil de la Frontera, which is a beautiful fishing village on the southern coast. It attracts tourism, especially in the summer months. The long White Sandy beaches, countryside and pine forests are spectacular. Culturally and socially there is plenty to do and see in the área all year round.
We take part in an educational Project with others families. Our aim is to create a child-led, discovery based learning environment which nurtures an d respects the needs of each child. This small school is an alternative to the oficial state education.
In our free time we like to spend time with friends, going out to eat or have a beer, in home we like to eat healthy food. We often go to the beach, enjoying music, yoga and carpentry.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
if volunteers are interested in improving their Spanish, we would be happy to allocate a time for wolunteers to practice. We will be delighted to teach aspects of Spanish culture. Josi is a realy good cook and we can share recipes. In this area there are many activities to enjoy, such as yoga, surfing, circus, bike rides...
We need an English speaker to help us learn English, but in a natural organic way. The "work" would be to spend time, mostly with girls, playing, speaking, doing different activities, arts and crafts, normally in the afternoon. Therefore we are looking for someone who enjoys spending time with kids and knows how to get along with them. We prefer longer periods (around 1 monsths, because we think is better for the girls, but we can be flexible.
We would love to meet people who could share with us their knowledge, cultural traditions and skills (playing some instrument, dance, yoga, gardening, carpentry...).
We live in a comfortable house with a large garden, in the vicinity there are pine forests and planting fields. Around our house there are many ways to ride a bike, and the beaches are quite near.
We have a beautiful guest room with bathroom and private terrace.
We believe that you will love to know our family and our people. It's a great place to live. Sun, beach and very friendly people, in a fishing village with a lot of historical places to visit.
