  • Description


    We are a Swiss family living in the heart of Switzerland where the world famous Emmental cheese is produced. We are homeschooling our four kids aged from 5 to 11. So there is always something to do in the household, with the kids or around the house. They love outdoor activities, playing games, sports e.g. ice skating and riding their bikes, cooking, reading, sewing, playing piano, hand-lettering, watching movies... We are always glad about helping hands with cooking, shopping, gardening and some cleaning but also just playing games or racing around the garden with the kids. At the beginning of your stay we will sit down with you and try to find the best match between your skills and our needs. As for us parents, we are passionate about other cultures and languages, enjoy good chats in the evenings, love to taste red wine and are excited about brewing espresso shots and creating latte art at home.

    We have travelled alot and from 2014 to 2018 we lived in South America. We therefore speak German, French, English, Spanish, a bit of Italian, Ivrit and Mandarin. We love learning about other cultures and are very willing to show and explain our culture and customs to others. Living with us will also give you an insight into our rich homeschooling life.
