  • Description


    we are looking for a girl, who can help with our kids during summer vacation!
    We are German(Mum)/Dutch (Dad) couple with 2 boys (8 and 9) which are both born here in Spain. We are since 14 years in Spain. We both work in IT in an office in Barcelona. To complete our family we also have 3! dogs. As we are both working and sometimes one of us needs to travel we would need somebody who could help getting the kids to activities, like school or later training etc.
    We live in a charming town, called Corbera de Llobregat, around 30 km away from Barcelona (easily reached by bus and train).
    Our house has a big garden and pool, and due to Spain's weather we spend most of the time outside.
    Our fist aim is to give some more language practice (preferable German, Dutch or English) to our boys and get some help to manage day to day cores easier, especially over the summer vacation, as our kids are more at home. Experience with kids & dogs is an advantage. Apart from that you would life with us like an additional family member.
    Looking forward to some initial talks.

    What else ...

    We are happy to offer some accommodation for somebody who want to life close to Barcelona, to discover the city and surroundings. We life in a house right at the old wine road to Penedes with lots of nature around us. The city is reachable by a bus (15 min walking distance or 5 min with a bike) from town within 35 minutes. We also can arrange a pick up or drop of at the nearest train station.
    We are pretty busy during the week and our life's planned through. But on the weekends the family comes first and we enjoy being just with the family and friends here doing BBQs, discovering the mountains with the dogs or a go for a day trip to the beach or along the river. Our guests are welcome as a part of our family and depending on their interests, we are sure we can help getting them to see what they came for, apart of some time abroad.
    As we look for somebody mainly for child care it would be great if you could stay at least 2/4 weeks, best the whole summer.
