Do you get days off? Like could I possibly go travelling whilst I'm there?

Hi Lockie, thanks for your interest in au pairing in Spain.
Of course you get time off during your stay. General rule is during the week to attend language lessons + at least one complete weekend a month. However, average families offer au pairs full weekends on top of time off during the week.
And you also get some holidays: For every 12 months of stay, the au pair has the right to 2 weeks paid holidays, Shorter periods should be prorated. Family and au pair agree best time to take those holidays.
So, you will have the opportunity not only to know the place where your host family lives, but also other provinces in Spain.
