  • Description


    We are a couple (Andrea and Christian) with an already grown up daughter (Finnja). We live in the old city of the beautiful village Laufenburg. It is very close to Germany, approx. a 2 minute walk. Then you are in the german part of Laufenburg, only divided by the river Rhine.
    Our project is our house and the small garden. We bought it about 3 years ago. Since then a lot of renovations have been done. Because it is an old house there is always a lot to do and we would be thankful for every help. Therefore we are looking for someone with technical skills. For spring 2020 we want to rebuild the garden, new green, flowers etc.. Also couples are welcome as there is also help in the household appreciated.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We offer to be part in our daily life. Living in a historical location, a small and quiet alley with a great neighborhood.
    Laufenburg is at the river Rhine with great landscapes. Close to Germany and the black forrest region, so you can explore both countries Switzerland and Germany. The next bigger city is Basel, approx. 30 minutes by train. Next to Basel is already France. Zürich is 45 minutes by train.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are in the Hochrhein region (high-rhine) with Germany on the northern and Switzerland on the southern side of the river Rhine. There are many beautifull and historical villages like Bad Säckingen (Germany) or Rheinfelden (Switzerland). Also the next bigger cities like Basel or Zürich are worth a trip. Also Freiburg in Germany or the Alsace region in France are possible travel destinations. There are 2 train stations, one in Switzerland and one in Germany.

    We are both working, whereat Andrea only works part-time. Which means you are alone in the most working day mornings. Nevertheless we would enjoy to share time and meals together.
