  • Description


    Welcome.. I moved in to this beautiful old swiss cozy house around five years ago. The dream about this place is to create a working-space and inspiration-place for Artists. In the upper floor of the house you find bedrooms and beds and in the downer floor of the house it's a space to create. I host writers, moviemakers, musicians, pirates and pixies and give them a space for creativity in and around the house.

    This house is surrounded by a huge garden, where i actually NOW! need a lot of help to make everything ready for Winter. And yes, the house is heated up by wood, so there will be everyday a little bit of gym to bring the wood, chop it, light the fire and enjoy the cozy warm atmosphere on the hot bench afterwards. :-)

    If you are a permaculture, gardening and nature freak and you wan't to give me a hand in the garden, very welcome!!

    There is a lot of creative work to do from middle of September.. Building a new outdoor bathtub with a fire oven, spread a lot of mosaic in and around the house build a new fence for the chickens that will land soon.. And start preparation for winter all over the garden.

    Here you'll meet the colorful side of Switzerland. In one hand, you can not live more typically swiss. Because the house is a real, very old swiss house heated by wood. The area is surrounded by many farms and nature. In the other hand you can meet people in the house from all over the world. It can be loud, spirited and wild in a lovely way, because we celebrate meetings, gatherings and life itself .. there can be a small concert in the house or somebody come to read out of a book, or we have a children's cooking workshop and then suddenly its possible that you will find yourself for a week in unbelievable silence between songs of the birds, sounds of the wind, snowflakes and ....nothingness. :-)
