  • Description


    We are a family of four: two adults (Isabel and Angel), and 2 boys (5 and 2). We enjoy a quiet life in the country, very focused in our children and their care. We are looking for someone to practise our English, play with our kids and help us with the housework.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone who preferably speaks English and can play with our children (basically the 3 year old one) and help us with some housework. Someone who enjoys being in nature and isn't looking for a big city experience since where we live there are no shops or commerce within walking distance.
    We practise conscious parenting and are looking for someone who is respectful and aware of children real needs. We don't believe in awards or punishments toward children.

  • Accommodation


    We live in a house in the country.
    We have internet connection. Workawayers can have a private room. The bathroom and the rest of the house are shared.
    We cook everyday. We eat an omnivorous diet. Our host can eat whatever we cook or prepare their own meals if prefered.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in the country. The city is 30 minutes away by car, and the nearest town is within a 5 minute car ride.
    We enjoy a quiet life, with close contact with nature. Sometimes we go to the city to do some shopping, enjoy some kid activity or just have a walk.
    My husband works 5 days a week and I stay home with the kids. During the day we play, do some housework, cook, go for a walk... Our host can join us whenever we go to the town or city in our car, but has to be ok with living in a quiet area the rest of the time, just spending time with us and the kids. There is a bus stop that takes you to the city or town within a 20 minute walk.
    We live very close to Pontevedra and the Rias Baixas area, which is a very beautiful area.
