  • Description


    I am living in Swiss mountains, near the forest, in a big house where I welcome groups for seminars and individuals for retreat. The idea is that people come here to contact the great nature around, take time for themselves, go to hike or ski in nearby ski resort.

    Nature is just everywhere around. I am organizing hikes, with presentation of comestible and medicinal plants, with possibilities to combine this with yoga or meditation.

    I am an environmental engineer, searching a balance in life. I like sports, mountaineering, ski, travels (did a lot all around the world), art,... life! I am non-smoker, vegetarian, and like to let people live as they do.

    After several great experiences on workaway, and as there is always something to do and improve at home, I continue this adventure! The plan is to built simple dry toilets (easy one !), cut some fire wood, build wooden storage, etc... There is also a little bit of painting remaining in the house here and there, and some decoration for those who like it !

    The house is situated near to Vernamiège, a nice small village above Sion. The public transports are ok, with about 10 buses going to the city in 30 min everydays. Lots of nice hikes and spots are to be discovered around.
