    If your main goal is to improve your Spanish language skills in extraordinary way, this is your house!. We are cello teachers at conservatory.
    We are open mind and easy going people. We have done home exchange several years before.
    We are a family of four: Gema, Rafa, a child of seven years old, Martin, and Daniel of five years old.

    We love music and travelling.
    We are looking for easy going, talkative and kind person who could stay with us in our house.
    Looking for a person with initiative with kids.
    We will answer your email within few hours.

    If you want to stay with us, you need to consider this:
    You need to be convinced that being in charge of two little boys is more than just being next to them. It is to interact with them ( This is the most important for us ). ONLY APPLY IF YOU GENUINELY LOVE KIDS AND ARE WILLING TO ESTABLISH A CONNECTION WITH THEM.
    Ask yourself if you would be able to play with seven and five year old boys for several hours a day. If you would be able to tell stories, to sing with them, or discuss issues that may not interest you too. Tip: If you deal with children, it is better for you to propose the activities to them. Otherwise, they will propose to you. You should have the initiative.
    We will also ask you to help them with their school homework; maths, start reading...

    Please do not use your phone when you are with them.

    Their behavior is good in general. They are playful, of course. They have a good heart and are very sensitive.
    They will treat you like an older sister or like a very special friend. So they will expect you to pay attention to them, to play with them and to be loving with them.

    To be loving… This is an interesting point. We give many kisses and hugs to our children throughout the day (and throughout life). So we are, and this is difficult to change.
    We do not expect you to be as expressive as the Spaniards, but we do expect you to be tolerant of shows of affection of our sons.
    We expect you to be patient with them and do not feel strange if our sons give you a hugs or they sit too close to you or take your hand when you walk on the street with them.
    Although, so far, our experiences with guests have been very positive (we have had guests from England, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, German, Netherlands, EEUU...), we always like to clarify these points.
    Thus, our future guests will understand that our main interest in this exchange are our sons. And, during the daily working time, this should be also the main interest of our guest.
    Obviously, during your daily leisure time, you can focus on your own interests (Spanish language and culture, meet people, go for a walk, play sports, just have fun, enjoy the pleasure of doing nothing, or… whatever you prefer).

    We eat all kind of food and we cook all the food but If you want or if you need to cook for you special food, it will be perfect!. We have had a veeery good experience with several vegan workawayers. They cooked delicious dishes for all of us.

    We try to eat as healthy as possible. We usually cook with few salt and sugar. We use olive oil.
    We do not drink alcohol normally. Sometimes beer or wine, but usually our drink when we eat is water.

    The most important thing: we want a person with initiative to speak, teach and play in English with Martin and Daniel.
    House tasks are secondary things.

    You can live with a family who loves travel so maybe you can travel somewhere with us and visit other places of Cantabria.

    Once you're with us, if during weekends or holidays you want to share our leisure activities (excursions, some trip, meeting with friends or relatives), we are delighted you to join. But, it depends on you.

    If you know about pages design or about WORDPRESS it would be an enormous plus.
