  • Description


    We are a small family living in the countryside 3kms far from Mercedes in Soriano. WE are very simple and friendly people willing to know other people and their culture.

    Our small ranch consists of beautiful garden with few farm animals and fish in a fish pond. It is a peaceful place where to relax in privacy.

    I am an English teacher running my own English Language school and also work at secondary school.

  • Help


    I am looking for someone who can help me at the Institute. We teach English in different levels and ages.
    It can be a Teacher or someone who is a native speaker and can work on a project, on art, on a play, conversation classes, etc.
    You could also help with some errands or using technology.
    Besides, as we have a hostel at home, you can be of some help with foreigners as my husband doesn't speak English.
    There are also some things to do on the farm, feeding the animals, maintaining the place, etc.

    What else ...

    There's a nice park 2 kms from the city where there's a zoo with local animals (they are pretty free there), and there's a paleontological museum in a castle.
    There are many places for fishing if you like that activity and nightclubs for those who enjoy that. There's also a cinema. We often stay in the house as we like peace and quietness.
