    Description

    Dear workawayer. We are a lovely family of four, consisting of twin boys (11 years), a German mother (46 years) and a Catalan father (48 years). Our family lives in Sant Quirze del Valles, a small town close to Barcelona (26 km distance). There is a frequent train connection from our town to Barcelona city centre; the ride takes 40 minutes. Our house lies within 10 minutes walking distance from the train station. If that sounds like something that you are interested in, we are looking forward to speaking to you and welcoming you to our home.
