Area: GraubündenHello, I'm Agnes (60 years) and I'm living in the german speaking part of Switzerland in Schiers. It is near Klosters and Davos, a well known part of Switzerland. Here a have a big wooden house with 8 rooms. Since last year I have 3 bed& breakfast rooms and it is running quite well. As I'm working outside some time, it would be nice to have some help for the guests as well. I have the house since 3 years and there is always a lot of work to do around and in the house. For me workaway is a wonderful possibility to know people from everywhere and to have some help, all at the same time. You will have an owen room and you can use other rooms as well. Of course you will receive also free food, I like to cook and I am interested in cooking from other countries as well. The area where I live has a lot of possibilities like hiking, biking, climbing, some lakes and in winter time it is a wonderful place for skiing. Working time would be approx. 20 hrs a week. As I like children very much, I would also be happy to have a familiy with a child here. Please feel free to ask me every thing you would know. I'm looking forward to receive your request.

I work as an animal attendant at RSPCA part time, my husband also works part time. We are owner builders, but nearly finished. We live on 47 acres where we have numerous domestic and farm animals. I have travelled Europe and my family enjoy interests such as, music & theatre, film, playing instruments and singing, learning languages, animal husbandry, solar living, growing predominantly organic meat, old engines, reading, horse riding, motorbikes, wildlife care, and attempting to reduce our environmental impact. At times, when we holiday, my mum (72 yo) looks after the place and would certainly love having company and some help. She has her own house 10 minutes away and could use some help gardening. Any work done there would be included in the allotted hours..not extra. We laugh alot and do not have strict rules of ettiquette,
