The Experience

We are a young family looking for a friendly hand on daily tasks as watching a house, the kids, cleaning and gardening. We work in our own home artisan bakery and sell our products in local markets and fairs.

I would have liked to stay longer! These few days in Torres have been emotionally charged. The house is a perfect place to unleash your creativity, the hosts are fabulous and made us feel comfortable from the first minutes. A great way to discover southern Brazil, meet people and create memories. I hope to see you all 4 again one day <3

We only stayed a few days but we had a really cool time. They made us feel like home, showed us around, included us in their daily life and on trips, but also gave us the space we needed to relax and chill alone. The work is also fun! Everything from garden,handyman to looking and learning how they make the bakery stuff :) You can be sure you'll be taken good care of here- and the bread and bakery they make taste amazing !!!! Thank you so much <3

It was a few days of stay but I was surrounded by creative and beautiful souls! It was nice to be in a familial environment again after being away from my own home for quite sometime now. Ester and Maicon have been generous and really nice hosts. It's been amazing as well because my schedule coincided with their son's 6th birthday, and when they had this cool family traveling in a Volkswagen Kombi staying over. I also liked learning about natural fermentation and artisanal baking. How I wish I had more time to immerse myself in the craft. Nevertheless, amor e gratidão! <3

Gracias a ustedes por traeren tanta energia positiva a nuestro hogar. Espero poder verlas pronto y relajar con ustedes para solo tomarmos unos tragos juntas y charlar de la vida y sus arduas pruebas. Gracias por la experiência e por tanto aprendizado. Gracias, gracias... ya las extrano.

A experiência na casa foi muito feliz desde o início, quando fui recebida carinhosamente por todos, principalmente pelas crianças. A dinâmica da casa, com muita movimentação pelos afazeres domésticos e pela produção artesanal de pães e pizzas, te faz sentir como parte da família rapidamente. Tivemos um réveillon incrível e pude conhecer pessoas maravilhosas neste lugar. Gratidão pela oportunidade e confiança. Ganhei uma família em Torres e já sinto saudades.💛
