Hi! Hola! We are Greg and Daisy!
We moved to Spain three years ago, and now live in a beautiful village in the Picos de Europa national park, with our three year old son, baby daughter and various animals.
We travelled round the world together in 2012, and agreed that the Picos is the most beautiful place we'd been to! We love the outdoors, and here there is hiking, mountain biking and climbing, as well as being close enough to the coast that you can do some incredible surfing!
We have numerous projects going on, the main one being the renovation of our property. Greg quit his desk job and is busy converting part of our property into apartments while Daisy works from home full time.
We also have two small children so time is something we have very little of!
We would love someone to come and help out with the kids for a few hours each day. No experience in childcare is necessary as we will both be around all the time, just enthusiasm to play with two lively kids!
We enjoy cooking and love learning new recipes, so any love of cooking will also be very welcome!
We speak intermediate Spanish, and speak both Spanish and English at home. We're always keen to explore this beautiful area, which is famous for local produce (orujo, wine, honey, cheeses) and outdoor adventures. As well as the building project, we also want to start bee keeping, improve our Spanish cooking and learn local traditions.
If you would like to spend time in a truly beautiful area, learning new customs and experiencing a different way of life, please get in touch!

We would love people that can help with childcare as well as some light household tasks/cooking and/or gardening. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm!
Este anfitrión ofrece intercambio de idiomas
We speak English and Spanish at home, and there is an opportunity for practising and improving both.
You will have a private room in our home in a village in the national park, with free (fast) wifi.
We live in a small beautiful village, which is only 3 km from Potes, the main town in the Picos where you'll find a great selection of restaurants, bars and outdoor activities. If you have your own transport, great! Otherwise we can lend you a bike to explore the area. There are also regular buses to Santander, which stop off on the coast.
We're still exploring this incredible area so always looking for excuses to try new things!
