  • Description


    We're a family of four: Laura (41), Uri (41), Bruna (11) and Gael (6). We live in El Masnou, a village on the beach, well connected to Barcelona (only 25 minutes to the city center by train/car).

    We like to share our house and our day to day with foreign people. For us is like travelling and meeting new cultures and languages without moving from home. We would prefer to have references of you.

    During weekdays we are very busy working so it's nice to have help with the kids and the some housework. On weekends and holidays we love to play with our children and we use to go to the mountains.

    Some things you must know about us:
    - We have a cat
    - We speak Catalan at home, with our friends and family (we can speak Spanish but is not ours first language)
    - Uri is vegetarian (not Laura and the kids)

    We would like to share with you our culture and experience. We can teach you to speak some Catalan or Spanish, how to cook a paella, and maybe we can take you to rock climb :) In exchange we would like to practice english or french (or other languages) and to know more about your culture and experience in life.

  • Help


    We are really busy on weekdays so your help will be grateful :)

    We are looking for someone to help us with our kids in the afternoons and evening during weekdays, playing and talking a lot with them in english or french, maybe someday taking them to school in the morning and also do some small house chores (tidying up the kitchen in the evenings...).
    We are looking for someone responsible who really loves kids.

    You can also help us:
    - Language or music classes
    - Painting tasks, maintenance and restoration

    We prefer stays of at least 3 weeks.
    The help will be around 20 hours/week only from Monday to Friday, so you’ll have plenty of time.
