  • Description


    Anglo/Swiss Family of 4 (2 boys, 13, 18) living in Grindelwald, a beautiful and famous part of the Bernese Oberland.

    We can offer German / English Mother Tongue, a lovely area to live in, Husky-Experience and are looking for someone to help us out with the daily family routine. Dad is working away throughout the week. Mum is really busy with the new structures, i.e. rental apartments, office, booking platforms as it is all new still. You would primarily be supporting the family by helping out with the dogs (experience needed) cooking meals, cleaning, helping out with the washing, snow shipping, gardening, feeding pets, maintenance around the house, etc...)

    We have just built a new Chalet with three rental apartments in it. We also have two Huskies and are a very sporty family.

    The famous mountain village of Grindelwald is embedded in a unique Alpine landscape at the foot of the world famous mount Eiger north face. It is the diversity of the glacier village that makes it so attractive. A wide range of activities and recreational opportunities amidst unspoiled nature are attraction points all year round.

    Summer Activities: lakes nearby, lots of adventures on offer, beautiful hiking and biking trails or pure relaxation
    Winter Activities; Skiing, Snowboarding, Hiking, (Husky)-Sledging, relaxation
    -> or jump in our Whirl Pool :-)
