  • Description


    Hola! We're a Uri and Laura (both 43 y.o.), Bruna (13) and Gael (8). We offer a homestay in exchange for some help with the kids some afternoons, language classes (preferably English or French) and some basic house chores.

    We like to share our house and our day to day with foreign people. For us is like traveling and meeting new cultures and learning languages without moving from home.

    During weekdays we are very busy working so it's useful for us to have someone that can be with the kids some days after school (specially with the little one, because the other is becoming a teenager :)

    We live in El Masnou, a village on the beach, well connected to Barcelona (only 25 minutes to the city center by train/car).

    Some things you must know about us:
    - We mostly speak Catalan at home, with our friends and family. We are able to speak Spanish and some English.
    - We have a cat
    - Uri is vegetarian (not Laura and the kids)
    - We are fully Covid vaccinated
