  • Description


    I am retired scientist who does not like to invest much time in the sustenance of the property, therefore I'd need the support and motivation by workawayers.

    House and garden are already mostly in good shape, thanks to the contribution to former workawayers, so don't expect too much chores.

    Your stays are meant to be short ones, for initially about 4 - 7 days only!

    So currently, I prefer applicants who are already travelling nearby.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am somehow knowlegdeable in most tasks, so you can learn something from me. And together with your knowlegde and ideas, we will discuss possible solutions and get to quite good results. You will have enough opportunity to explore nature and town, and to make discoveries in gastronomy and the arts.

    What else ...

    Great for sports: swimming (free pool of the community), cycling (you can get one of my bikes or scooters), hiking (in the nearby forest and Jura hills), snow sports.

    Regional public transport to town (Basel) and villages and hilltops is excellent. You will get a regional tourist ticket for free.
