We are a family of three. Fani (the mother), Iris (the daughter) and Lili (the dog). We live in a small town called Es Mercadal, in the belly of Menorca, a few kilometers from virgin beaches and nature ant it's maybe one of the most beautiful towns in the island
I work attending visitors in an archaeological site, and I need some help with work at home and to care Iris and Lili.
We would like a polivalent, dynamic and respectful person. Also independent and waiting to discover another culture, other people and other places. You will have a lot of time for yourself, and if you want you can participate in our activities and friends. In return we offer you accommodation and meals and the opportunity to make new friends ;)

Menorca is a wonderful place to discover, with incredible nature, virgin beaches, and a very good atmosphere in summer, which knows how to keep its slow pace. You will have a lot of free time a week to enjoy your stay in the way you choose. You can go on your own or share the activities you want with the family. We like to enjoy nature, go on excursions, go out with our camper van, go to the beach, get together with our friends, enjoy the sea and other simple but great pleasures that the island offers us.

May and June I need help painting, doing small repairs around the house and getting the garden up and running. There is a piece of land that has not been cultivated for a long time and we have to fence it off, prepare the land and plant. I would like someone with knowledge of permaculture or organic farming.
A person who can take care of Iris is also welcome, so I have more time to spend on other jobs. Iris is an active and very creative and resourceful 7-year-old girl. At first she is quite shy and you have to give her time and have patience so that she adapts to new people. Once this is over, she is a very funny girl.
For July, August and September the help would be mainly for cooking and other daily household tasks so that we can all enjoy a wonderful summer.
Este anfitrión ofrece intercambio de idiomas
At home we speak Spanish and Catalan. I speak (as far as I can hehehe) English and French. In summer many visitors from different countries come to the place where I work, so any language you speak will be a good opportunity for all of us to learn. I prefer that the person who comes speaks some Spanish so that the girl can be understood, especially at the beginning.
We live in a traditional village house. It's a bit old and it needs little renovations, but it's comfortable. We have a large garden that needs some maintenance and we would like to enjoy it in the summer and this year we would like to do a little gardening.
The person who comes will have a room for individual use and will share the rest of the house with the family. We would like you to feel at home.
There is public transport for the rest of the towns and beautiful beaches from Mercadal. Prices start at €2.50 one way depending on the distance. Access to virgin beaches is only with your own vehicle. I have a second car that is sometimes available but in the summer I usually rent it.

There's unlimited wireless internet access at home. Signal is good for digital work. Last year I worked at home without problems.
Dogs that get along with other dogs and children are welcome. Lili is a sociable and fun podenco of 1 year and a half.
