  • Description

    Description

    Hello ! We're a little family with 2 children and are both self employed.
    We'd love our kids to discover many cultures and ways of life thanks to our hosts, our travels and adventures.
    We're very much into local/healthy eating and living. We've just started our little garden, hoping to learn how to grow things in a permaculture way.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love travelling and meeting people although we're trying to get our CO2 emissions down now, so travelling differently. We speak a few languages. Our kids are a lot of fun (and can make you very tired :)). They only speak fluent French, although we're hoping they can start learning other languages. We'd be happy to teach you some French.
    We love nature, and Switzerland, and will be happy to share who we are with you!
    If you need any advice, we'll be happy to help.
    Our place is in a small village (so very little transport) but central in Switzerland and close to a motorway, 5km out of a little town and shops.

    Depending on when you come, we'll need help with rebuilding a balcony/terrasse, looking after the children (age 4 and 6), cooking, keeping the house clean, fixing things in and around the house or gardening...
    We also want to organize different parts of the house and outdoors, so all kind of builders and gardeners are more than welcome! We've started remodeling our garden and we'd love some help for our small permaculture project.
    Marc sometimes also needs help editing, ordering, etc photos and would like to update his internet site.
    We'd really like our children to learn more Spanish and English, so looking after them and teaching them some new words would be great.

    Accommodation

    We live in a renovated farmhouse and have a relatively independant room for our workaway guest. It gives a lot of privacy if wanted. (We both work in the house we live in. And the guest room is just next to where we work, so its important not to make too much noise in the room when we're in our office).
    We live in a small typical Swiss village and have a garden that we share with our neighbours/friends.
    Good food is very important to us. We cook fresh food every day (once a day) and are happy to do vegetarian if wanted and would really love to discover your food and ways of cooking.

    We have a spare bike to get you to a little beach close to where we live or to the forest near by. The village we live in is very small so there is not much public transport but 5 km away is a small town, famous for its Roman ruins, where you can get transport to just about anywhere. Public transport is very expensive in Switzerland. A lot of our hosts use hitchhiking and are able to explore the country that way.

    Marc is a photographer, so our internet connexion is good. There is a little desk and table in the room, so you can work somewhere quiet. Or anywhere else in the house if you prefer. We're happy to give you more info if needed.
