    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The countryside is very beautiful out here. You can go for hikes and bicycle rides, or riding with the horses. The river Rhine is close by with bathing and rafting or tubing in summer. There is also always a lot of fun going on out here with friends and family. The local village is pretty and quiet, with an old church and a former convent overlooking the plains. It's just nice and pleasant to be on our properties, there's a kind of relaxing happiness about it. People are open and friendly, you learn a lot exchanging with them, and they from you. You also learn a lot about everything like taking care of the properties, the grounds, the pets, and living on a farm. It should be a very enriching experience.

    We are a Swiss family with two lively boys aged 15 and 13. We have a large country house and a farm. We keep horses and cattle, and many pets besides, like dogs, cats, hens, rabbits, birds and fish. At our country house you can be company for the children, help us take care of the horses and other pets, do gardening work, do maintenance and improvement work on the property and the grounds, and work on building projects. Any skills you have or want to learn are sure to be useful and welcome!
