  • Description


    Hi! We are Ward and Julie. Together we have a young daughter, Coco. We are a Belgian family living on the countryside in Switzerland with our dog. During the weekends, we love to be out in nature (hiking, paragliding..) or spend cosy dinner nights with our friends. We would love to get to know you!

    We live in an old suisse farm on the countryside. It’s the perfect place to enjoy Switzerland at the fullest. 40min away from Zurich and 40 min away from the Alps, our home gives you the opportunity to do whatever you like in your freetime.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone who is willing to live with us for a few months to help us taking care of our baby when we are working and take care of our dog.

    Taking care of the dog means a daily walk. Be aware, we have a big strong dog with some issues on the leash so we need someone who is willing to learn how to handle him and is patient with him.

    Taking care of the baby means babysitting for whenever we are not around (I work 40% so it’s not a fulltime job).

  • Accommodation


    We live on the first floor in an old farmhouse with view over the alps. The neighbors underneath are actual farmers who produce Natura beef (special bio meat). Since the building is old, we don’t have central heating but we heat with fire. Other than that our house has a separate bedroom for you, kitchen and bathroom is shared. You are welcome to eat with us in the evenings but don’t feel obligated!
