  • Description


    I do offer: A comfortable room at the upper floor with 1-3 beds and a balcony with an awesome view, daily meals and wifi is available. In exchange you help in and around the house. For skilled workawayer I have computer and photo tasks. I'm running a time consuming business and would be happy to have your support at home.

    I am: Valentin 29, living in the mountain area (Wallis) in south Switzerland. My home is a sweet house with garden in a traditional wine village in the main valley. I love traveling, being in nature, good food and much more.. I have an open and welcoming character, enjoy connecting and exchanging with people.

    Looking for: Motivated, genuine and open people, male and female, friends and couples.

    Important: Experience in cooking food and cleaning (main task). Smoking is okay; I do, but outside the house. No kids and no pets.

    Do write the word "swiss cheese" in beginning of your application. I won't answer any mass applications.
