Welcome on our profile. We are happy you found us. Us, this is Elke, Julia, Pascale and Samia. We share this house as a community, three women and a girl, five cats & a dog.
We live on 1100 m in the swiss prealps in the nature reservat in the area of the Mount Gantrisch and between the Sense and Black Water Rivers.

Travellers can learn a lot about permaculture, natural healing and healing plants. About homeschooling... about coaching and alternative indigenous teaching/coaching methods.
There is always enough work in carpentry, gardening, playing with the children, walking the dog, cooking, painting, constructing... the house and the barn are from the 70ies and there's always things to maintain and care for. The garden is 5000 m2 and has a lot of potential to become a lovely paradise. your help's appreciated.

We live in a nice hiking and cycling area. We have bikes that can be used in the summer, and snowshoes for the winter. For sport activities in the summer there is a rope park and a climbing park quite close, if you like horse riding and are experienced in handling horses, we can organize a nice tour on well trained western horses for you. In the wintertime there is a little and very nice and very little ski lift just 1 km from our house, it is suitable for children but too small for adults (only 300m :-) and very flat but just great!!) There are 2 bigger ski lifts about 15 minutes away with the car, and a great cross-country skiing area with endless trails.
We are really in the countryside, so if you like to go to towns, you have to make a 20min walk to the next bus stop (if you do not have a car). By car its about 35 minutes away from Thun/Fribourg/Berne.
About our lifestyle: We run our life a bit outside the mainstream. We try to eat healthy with a lot of organic and as much as possible own veggies and do not eat much meat... In our house the internet is switched off during the night. The food we offer is mostly organic, fresh and as much as possible provided by our garden. We do not have common veggies that you might probably know from other places. We are building up an edible landscape with edible wild plants and flowers. Those plants offer more bitterness, more variety and are much healthier. AND the snails do not eat them :)
we treat each other with lots of respect and love and we try to life a life in balance between those quite different things... garageing and gardening... not always an easy task :-)
Our house is not connected to the local water cleaning system, that s why we do not use chemical cleaning products and prefer biodegradable products. And we want you to do the same as long as you are with us. We have no television and WE SWITCH OFF THE INTERNET AT 10p.m.
The fact that we life our life between loving and treating nature in the most ecologic way and working with cars and motorcycles sometimes seems to be a bit strange. It s a special kind of work-life-balance ;-) We do our best to do the best :)
We would love to offer host to a open minded and friendly couple or a small family with one or 2 children. My daughter would love to have other children to play with and the place around the house is just perfect for children.
Being at our house means also, to accept that sometimes we are really very tired from work and you should be able to spend some of the time alone, reading, hiking. We really love to talk and to spend an evening or half the night infront of the fire in the garden, but sometimes we just fall into bed quite early...
