    Help

    For April and May we are looking for some help in the vegetable garden, work like preparing the fields, weeding,
    seeding, cutting grassland and so on.
    Although works like preparing firewood and rebuilding stonewalls.
    And if there is someone with carpenter skills who likes to create a small treehouse, he/she will be welcome!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You will have Your own guestroom to stay and eat healthy food, mostly vegan and fresh from the gardens including wild herbs & flowers.
    Selfmade fresh baked bread!
    I try to develop the house in a kind of self-sufficient with things like solar water heating, photovoltaic, cooking with wood of the own forest and a modern compost toilet (that could be strange for some people).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a bus taking 40min to the wellknown city Locarno on the Lago Maggiore with sightseeing and museums.
    The house is 15 minutes up the hill walking distance from the village, no road, no cars, just surrounded by wild nature and a beautiful view. In the village you find a nice coffee bar and a small shop.
