  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four, Gioia (24), Manuel (31, Piera (4) and Nanda (1), living in the outskirts of Zurich.
    Manuel is a forrest worker and Gioia works at the Wildernes Park. Together we take care of a small vineyard and a vegetable garden.
    We love to be outside, work outside and to be active. We are interested in the simple things that make live beautiful: sitting around a bonfire, being in the woods, sharing time with friends and family, enjoying views from mountain tops.
    We are also driven by the question of how we can contribute to a better world and our community. May it be baby steps, we are always curious to find out about ecological improvements but also about how we affect other peoples lifes.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living with us you'll experience Switzerland far beyond the cliche alps. We live very close to Zurich (15 min by train, 25 by bike to the main station) but still live in close touch with nature. We are surrounded by spectacular places and lots of opportunities for outdoor activities. There is a lake, a small river, a wild forrest and a small hill. Within less than an hour you get to the postcard places of switzerland: the alps, lakes and skiing resorts. If there's time we can take you to nice spots and explore together.
    We love to host people and parties in our house, so you will get to know our friends and family and therefor have a broad insight into our culture. For us, if someone stays with us he or she belongs to the family and will be welcomed with an open heart. The center of our life are our children, they are part of all our activities and equal members of our tribe.
