  • Description

    Description

    We'd like a last minute helper to help my husband with some small construction/tough jobs. Who's available and would like to enjoy the mountains in summer?
    We're a family with 5 kids and 4 grandkids, only one left at home. That gives us rooms for a bed and breakfast. We're in the Swiss Alps, just above the Rhone river and partner of the Pfyn-Finges Regional Nature Park. Close to the ski slopes, hiking, in the midlle of the vineyards. Our village is a winemaking village. Some of the best Pinot Noir in the world.
    We have 4 rooms as bnb, vineyards, large garden, and a large house to take care of. Grapeseed business.
    We speak German, english and French fluently. Just a little Italian. German is our main language and you need German to work with the guests.
    We also produce and sell grapeseed products (grapeseed oil, cold pressed).
    We're looking forward to getting to know lots of people.

    Help in the gardens, vineyards, help with the rooms. Help with the grapeseed products. Always depending on the time of year. There's always something to do. Oppurtunity to learn/practice German or English. Take care of the hens (when our son isn't around).
    5 hours of work, 5 days in the week. 2 days off, not necessarily the weekend, as that's when we have the most guests.
