  • Description


    We are a family with 4 children, 3 horses, dog, cat and chickens. We live in a small holiday village at 1000 meters above sea level, just 15 kilometers from Bern. We live in an energy self-sufficient house in winter and in a beautiful farmhouse with a swimming pool in summer. The two buildings are 200m apart in the same holiday village. The horses are on two pastures, one with a padock. We work daily with the horses, all other animals and in the huge garden with a beautiful greenhouse. We value a sustainable way of life and respect people, animals and nature. We are open to all people, nationalities, ways of life. You are part of the family and our life project during your visit with us. We look forward to you!

  • Help


    You help us with the horses in the stable. If you want you can also help the girls when they are horse training. In the farmhouse you can help in the garden. In both houses there is always small construction to be done. You only help with natural colors and natural building materials. If you are interested in self-sufficient energy systems, we will be happy to show you how it works. You cook with us, also from your local cuisine. We love vegetarian cuisine but it is not a requirement. The kids love to learn languages, it doesn't matter which one. Here, boys also do housework and girls help build the house.

  • Accommodation


    You live in the farmhouse alone or with other visitors, or part of our family. In the self-sufficient house you sleep on loft nets at dizzy heights. Don't worry, we always have electricity, even during a blackout.....:-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    A train runs from Bern to Boll, from there a post bus to Utzigen. Then you have to walk 3 km... But we drive to Bern by electric car, electric bike or bicycle practically every day. Somehow you always come to us and somehow you also get to the next bar.
    Bern is the most beautiful city in the world, smart and relaxed.
