  • Description

    Description

    Hello everybody
    We are a family of four, there is Manu (32), Gioia (26), Piera (6) and Nanda (3). Manu works in the forrest and Gioia soon is gonna be a student of applied environmental engineering. In our spare time together we take care of a small vineyard, some chicken, a young fruit orchard and a vegetable garden in order to increase our self sufficiency level. We are very interested among other things in sustainable living, permaculture and living with the seasons. We love simple things that make life beautiful like sitting around a bonfire, spending time with friends and family or going for a hike.

    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.
