  • Description


    (Excuse my english, I am studying it).😃

    We are a couple with two girls aged 11 and 15 who live in Bizkaia (Spain) in a beautiful farmhouse. My name is Vero and I am 47 and my husband 48.

    We live in Basque Country, in a beautiful place in the mountain,where we have two dogs and a rabbit.

    Our house is at 4 km from the village, in the mountain. No buses pick you up there. But if you need, we pick you up to the village.

    We would like to invite an english talkative girl to our home.

    Please read about this:

    Basque Country is amazing, you can visit Bizkaia (Museo Guggenheim, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, Gernika), San Sebastián/Donostia (Playa La Concha, Internacional Cinema Festival, "ir de Pintxos"); Hondarribia,Baiona.

    In Navarra it is celebrates San Fermín (Pamplona) is at about 1 hour and half by car from Bilbao.
    Cantabria is next to Bizkaia, sometimes we go to its beaches, they are long and beautiful....

    We would welcome an English talkative girl to be able to practice English and to teach it to our daughters also through games, stories, songs, etc. To do this we need that person speaks and understands Spanish (although not perfectly) because my daughters only get English as a subject.

    We ask for a responsible, hardworking, tidy, educated, honest girl, who likes to play with children, and smiling to take care of my daughters, we need help cleanind the house, cooking, etc. Should not be smoker or drug user.

    If you play any instrument, much better!!☺️
