    Description

    Welcome everyone!

    I'm a 20 year old girl (turning 21 in august) living in Catalonia, near Barcelona. Our family would love to have a workawayer (no couples) to help with english and french conversation and to take care of our garden.

    We’re a family of four: my mother, who is 42, my mother’s couple, 32, my brother and me, 20. We live near Barcelona (45 minutes far of, driving), in a beautiful wine area called Alt Penedès, in a quite place, a river’s valley, sorrounded by vineyards and nature.

    We have good communication with Barcelona, and this would be a great opportunity for you to also spend time in the city, in case that you’re interested to do so. The train station is seven minutes far from home, and we get there by car.

    Our nearest town is 15 minutes walking from our home (5 minutes driving). Here you can have really nice walks and discover our beautiful zone, plenty of fantastic places. I would love to take you around!

    WHO ARE WE?

    My name is Cesca and I'm turning 21 soon. In September I'll start my fourth year of philosophy in university (I'm doing an Erasmus in Paris from September to January). I love art in general, reading and writing, poetry, acting, cinema, travelling, enjoying nature and learning a lot of whatever I can, especially, new languages, 'cause I really love the language in general. I speak english and french and I'm studying french and german.

    The summer here is really nice and full of cool experiences: I love staying with friends, going for walks and excursions, having baths in our swimmingpool and beach, watching movies, going to exhibitions, going to parties, to camp or to do "be back", while looking at the stars, baking, staying outside and enjoying vacation a lot!

    We would love to share this time with someone flexible, as we're not a very systematical family, and summer days are constantly changing and exciting!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    As I’ve already said, we live 45 minutes far from Barcelona. Me and my brother are studying both there, so we daily catch the train to get in the city. This way, this would be a great opportunity for you to stay in the city, in case that you’re interested to do so. The train station is ten minutes far from home, and we get there by car, so it would be perfect if you had a driving licence and a car to have more independence on the travels, but if not, you can obviously come in our car –we normally leave home at 7:15 A.M, and come back before or after lunch.
    We’re very flexible with the working hours: we just want it to be done at the end of the day, but it’s very important for us your comittment to it and to us–as we’re really not asking you hard work-. The only dealt hours will be the conversation ones.
    Everyone in our house work hard every day, so we’re all sometimes very occuppied and absorbed by our things –work and studies-, but, of course, we will love to spend time with you and to get to know you! So I think it will be a nice and balanced stay for you: you will have your independence, but we will love you to be part of our family as a one more member and spend nice times together.
    Our nearest town is 15 minutes walking from our home. Here you can have really nice walks and discover our beautiful zone, plenty of fantastic places. We are opened to take you around and we can also provide you a bike if you’re interested.

    We’re looking for someone expecting to travel from 19th January and to stay for three weeks. Not couples and 25 years old maximmum. Flexible people will be perfect, as we’re not a very systematic family.
    Expect to heare from you!
