  • Description

    Description

    We are a small community with 5 adults (2 couples, 1 single woman) and 2 children. We live in a farmhouse with 4ha of land (meadow / forest) on a hillside. There are also sheep and a cat. The location is very wild, originally, in the middle of nature, there you can hear the heart of the earth. The river and the waterfall are very close, the view is amazing.

    Our home lies 850 metres above the sea level, the nights can be also quite fresh in August. Warm clothes and good shoes are an advantage very much.

    Wir sind eine kleine Lebensgemeinschaft mit 5 Erwachsenen (2 Paare und ein Single) und 2 Kindern. Wir bewohnen ein Bauernhaus und bewirtschaften 4ha Land (Wiese/Wald) an Hanglage. Dazu kommen Schafe und eine Katze. Die Lage ist sehr wild, ursprünglich, mitten in der Natur, da hört man das Herz der Erde schlagen. Der Fluss und der Wasserfall sind ganz nah, die Aussicht ist wunderschön.

    Unser Daheim liegt 850 Meter über Meer, die Nächte können auch im August schon frisch sein. Warme Kleidung und gute Schuhe sind sehr von Vorteil.
