  • Description


    We are a Slovenian (Katja, 30) - Swiss (Philipp, 40) family with 3 small kids (between 0-4 years old).
    We live in a small house with garden, in a village, surrounded by nature. My husband and I have both traveled a lot and seen a lot of the world... We are interested in simple, natural life, yoga, cooking (we are a vegan household), community life, we plan to homeschool our kids in the future..

    We are a vegan family and we ask you to respect that. We do not mind if you eat some dairy products, however we do not allow non vegan cooking in our kitchen.

    Only for non smokers!

    My husband is Swiss and you can learn a lot about the Swiss way of life. We use three languages in our household (English/Swiss German/Slovenian).

  • Help


    At the moment, we mainly welcome somebody to support us in daily household life (cooking and light cleaning) and/or taking care of our older two kids. They love to meet people and we are all happy to taste some new fresh cooked vegan meals! Occasionally we also welcome help with tasks around the house/garden, depending on our current projects (for example helping do some simple house renovation jobs, cutting the trees, tending to the garden in the spring/summer time).

    What else ...

    We live in a small village between Biel and Solothurn (both easily reachable by bus), Bern/Zürich are about an hour train ride away. There is a bus station 1km from our house. We can provide a bicycle for you to get around as nearby towns/villages are easy to reach by bike. The river Aare is very close and a great place for summer swimming and winter walks along the shore!
