We are a famility living close to Alicante in a town called Santa Pola. We are Quino, Alex (6) and Gael (5).We have been living in the region for 6 years and for 4 years in this place. Me (Quino) I run several ventures at a time including a consultancy business on human rights related topics and a eco-ethnic social tourism initiative with destinations and activities in the region (not that much lately but I would love to relaunch it a bit).
Babysitting and creative play
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We offer a stay with a Spanish family in a wonderful area on the top of a mountain with views 2 min away to the Mediterranean sea and a wild beach down the hill.
For those with the skills to help me out with the tourism initiative you can learn on how to set up and run a socio-tourism project, visit some of the activities we organise and learn about some of the best traditions and places of the region.
I currently would like someone to help the kids get familiar with french and/or english in the house...I am interested only in very self-reliant people taking care of themselves and also helping out with daily tasks.
In addition and if you are good with GIS, Photosop-illustrator, statistics, or machine learning I would love to sit down and exchange, learn and share...and even maybe collaborate in some projects if there is the chance.
I would never ask for more than 20 hours a week on the above mentioned tasks so you will have plenty of time to discover the region as well.
I am specially interested in the cultural exchange so on top of receiving someone with the skills and willing to work one of the main aims is to have someone active, open, curious and autonomous.

Your will have your own independent room. You will use as well your own toilette (shower is common though) and we will all share the kitchen, the garden the dinning room, etc.
We can spare one bike (currently in need of some repair we can do together) to discover the place on your own (there are plenty of routes nearby including our mountain, wetlands, beaches, etc.).
