  • Descripción


    We are a family of four living in La Vera region, in western Spain. Our beautiful home is located in an olive grove, close to a nice lively village, and surrounded by nature. We live with two dogs and a cat, and share the land with a flock of nice young hens.
    La Vera region is an outstanding area, covered with forests and mountains. Beautiful water streams run down the mountains and offer endless swimming spots for the summer. The villages around are small but very lively during the summer months.
    Summer weather is hot and dry, perfect to swim during the day, and with pleasant nights to have dinner outside and enjoy the summer sky. Come meet us and know this awesome region!

    We have two main tasks for this summer 2024: child care and house sitting (with animal feeding)

    We work during the morning and kids have no school, so we are thinking about having someone here to be with them for those morning hours. One of us works at home as a freelance, the other one at the local bakery. Swimming in the river is the main summer activity, but there is also a swimming pool in the village or even here in our own property, so it’s an easy plan. We are looking for someone who likes being with children (7 and 11 years old) and looking forward to talk in English to them, so they can listen and learn a little. Child care dates are from August 1st to august 15th mainly.

    We might go out for some time during the summer and we would need someone to take care of the house and animals during that time. The main tasks would be animal feeding on a daily basis (cat, dogs and sheep) and just take a look around to check that everything is right. It's a fairly simple task really... The dates for this kind of work are around the first half of July.

  • Alojamiento


    We offer a big private room in the house for our guest. There are two shared bathrooms, both with shower.
    We follow a Mediterranean diet, so all kinds of food are to be expected, but we are very open minded and flexible. We love cooking and eating new dishes.
    We usually have breakfast in the morning, lunch around 14:30 and dinner at night when the summer heat is lower.

    Algo más...

    Our guests can make us of their free time as they like, but around here nature is what one finds right at our doorstep. Biking, hiking, swimming are the easiest options. We can lend a bike to our guest. There are small villages around with interesting sights, also, and we can provide our guest with a car to move around during the afternoon. Public transportation is not so useful around this area. Traveling to and from Madrid is easy, though, with everyday bus available.
