  • Description


    Are you looking for more than just a place to stay? Are you interested in making new friends while being on the road? Do you like working outside if the weather is fine? And if it is bad you will gladly help in the house?
    Welcome to our family with 3 youngsters (17/15/13) and a cat. We live in Schwarzenburg, a beautiful village surrounded by nature, half an hour from Berne by train.
    Being a family, it is important for us that you are interested in cultural exchange, so you must either speak French or English. In our house with garden there is always enough work where an additional hand and your special talents are welcome.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will welcome you as a part of our family and are looking forward to sharing with you some "Swissness" . Schwarzenburg is situated at 800m, surrounded by nature. Sun settings can be breath taking here. There is a beautiful natural resort (the Sense River) close by where you also can jump into the water. The village offers everything needed, though for a dazzling nightlife you would have to go to Berne. Public Transport is quite convenient also to visit other places in Switzerland.

  • Help


    Depending on the season and the weather you will work in or around the house. There are several garden projects awaiting like building a pond, redoing the fire place and other permaculture projects in our surroundings. From spring to autum there' s also the general gardening like planting, weeding, harvesting the vegetables, mowing the grass, etc. In the house you will join us for the general housework and maybe also some other special tasks. If you like you are welcome to cook from time to time. Do you have any special talents? Tell us about it, maybe they come in very handy, too. I will always show you what to do and how, but you will work mostly autonomously, as I also work as a wholistic practitioner.
