  • Description


    Hello future work-away,

    we are happy to share our home with you, and enjoy people from all over the word.

    as a family with 2 girls ( 2012 & 2016 ), we choose to settle down, after years of travelling trough the world..
    we settled down in Switzerland, our home-country.
    so we started our business and many projects here..

    we work in our own business (natural health care), in the summertime we may do some festivals, selling self-made Swiss-food, we renovating our apartment and do gardening for our food during spring and summer...

    our children grow up unschooled, that means, they don't go to school, but learn freely, as they want.

    we like the nature, so we try to care about as much we can, we eat mostly organic, as much from the garden and wild from the surrounding nature as possible.. using our bicycles :-)

    One thing that is important for us and our child's development is that we are also very mindful of our use of technology, especially around her. We are not against it per se, but very careful to not let it distract from each other in the present moment.

    we try to work less for more time, but at the moment, with the business, the children playing and the garden growing.. the festivals, the office-works, the projects and the renovating.. 2 hands for a little help, would be so perfect..

    we live in the French part of Switzerland, it is called Jura, but at home we speak germane and french..

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    they are many things we like and do.. so i think there is a lot we have to share..

    for example which wild plants you can eat, how to cook, some gardening.. we now a lot about natural health care and bodyworks.
    we do different workshops in our small therapy centre, so maybe you like to participate in a Yoga-class, or family constellation..

    we speak french and germane, some english and little portuguese

    you can have a individual room, access independent from our apartment.
    but our apartment is open for sure.. but you also can be for yourself if you need or like.

    so if you are one person, you have a room for you along..
    if you are 2 friends, or a couple or a little family, you can share the room..

    small families are welcome.. our children can play together.. can be nice..

    we do not put 2 peoples together which don't know each other.. only if you want us to do so :-)
