    Description

    Hello workawayers,

    I recently moved to Switzerland from the south of France where I had lovely experiences with workawayers from different countries.
    I am looking for a skilled all-rounder to complete the newly renovated apartment in an old farmhouse.
    There is mainly gardening, drywall construction, help with moving and repairing metal works of art.
    I also need help creating a new website about my late husband's art.

    In the same house lives my sister and her husband and a family with two small children.
    we are all open-minded , curious people, love the quiet country life, the nature around us.
    We want to share with others, learn from each other, live respectfully together. We don't smoke....

    I’m discovering the benefits of natural food that I use in my cooking. I can share with you my experience of cooking and preserving, using the wonderful selection of fresh fruit and vegetables available in this region to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In my free time I play the piano and I love all different kinds of music. I speak German and French that you can practice talking with me.
    I'm an experienced gardener, Ilove to hike in the mountains and collect wild herbs.

    We will share lunch or dinner once a day and the rest of the meals that I offer can be prepared by yourself/yourselves in the kitchen.

    What else ...

    The house is surroundet by fields, cow pastures, farmhouses, about 4 kms from the small town Schwarzenburg and 15 kms from Bern.
    The region is rich in history and culture. There is much to discover and some beautiful walks to be had in the surrounding countryside. In a 20 minutes walk you can reach the river with beautiful bathing spots.
    We are near the Gantrisch Nature Park where you can hike, bike, swim, climb, ski... The untouched countryside is ideal for relaxing and discover the beautiful nature.

    You can use a bike to explore the area. The train station is about 15 minutes away by bike.
