  • Description


    We are a single father family living in a very nice Barcelona suburb, Sant Esteve de Palautordera, within the Montseny Biosphere Reserve. There is an older daughter aged 20, two boys, Arnau 18, Jan 15, and Ricard 50, the father, who is a Paediatrician. And also our dog Bruna 9.

    Mother lives within walking distance and the children spend half of their time with each parent, on an alternate weekdays/alternate weekends basis.

    We live in a very nice detached house in a very peaceful neighborhood, near the forest, the river and two horse riding farms. We live half an hour away from Barcelona by car and there's public transport within walking distance that reaches the Barcelona city center and all the region. Our village is full of very active young people.

    In the house there is a piano, a swimming pool, a basketball "court" and a home cinema setting that we like to share.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We lived short periods in England and California and we are fortunate to have friends from different parts of the world. We all speak English, Spanish and some French although the main language at home is Catalan, so we adapted the family language as needed during the five awesome au pair experiences that we have had. Father is a Dr and a Professor always ready to teach those interested on his professional or amateur fields.

  • Help


    The boys are very responsible, you will be expected to interact and play with them in English and maybe teach your native language to them. We also would need that you do some house chores, petting our dog and caring the garden. It's about 10-20 hours a week, so also a lot of free time.
