We are new in this community and we are very excited about receiving travellers at home. We'd love to have some help in house and child care. At the same time, we'd like to practice English and offer the possibility to our kids (3 and 5 years) to learn some English.
Judit (38) has travelled many times as a backpaker in the past, hosting travellers has something of this genuine experience of travelling. Marc (38) is a fireman that likes to be open to the world, practicing English and also sharing his outdoor sports activities with new mates. Abril (5) and Cai (3) speak Catalan and Spanish and it would be great if they can learn some English too. We are nature lovers and we enjoy hiking, cycling and playing in rivers and beaches.

Help around the house
We speak Catalan at home, but we all can also speak Spanish.
We can share our cooking recipes made with and local-bio ingredients.
Our house is 15 minutes walking to the beach, 10 min walking to he centre of the town and 15 minutes to the train station.
From our door you can do mountain trial running or BTT. You can borrow our bike. We live very close to the Montnegre-Corredor Natural Parc.
Barcelona is 50 min by train and cultural activities are never ending in this city.
We also have a shared farmhouse with other families where we frequently go. There, you only see mountains and birds. Would you like to come?
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We require help in two basic aspects:
Help in the house: specially cleaning and cooking. General maintenance of the house, such painting or gardening could be needed as well.
Child care (mostly playing and doing activities) : Of course, for us is a big privilege to have English conversations at home, so we all can learn or improve this language, but specially our children. As we both work in spring/summer time while children are on holidays.
Around 20h per week, we are flexible with days, it could be something like 4h/day 5 days x week or 6,5h/day 3 days x week, we can decide together.
Bedroom of 8m2 in our house, with natural light. We believe it is perfect for one person or 1 adult + 1 child
Most of our food is bio and all vegetables are locally produced 10 minutes from home. We are not meat lovers; we eat eat meat from time to time, but we mostly eat fish, seitan, tofu or egg.
In our coastal town, Arenys de Mar, there is a scuba diving club and a sailing school. And, of course, the beach. Forest is very close, so mountain sports are easy to practice.
In Mataró (10 min by train) there are Spanish courses.
By train you can easily go to Barcelona, Girona or Costa Brava spectacular beaches
In summer we both work, but we like to do short trips 1-3 days (sometimes by van). In the van there is only place for 4 px, but for one day trip we can take our host with us.
