  • Description


    I live with my family of five in the house of a leased farm on Grabserberg. Step by step, we are transforming the intensely used grassland around the house into a productive and diverse landscape. We would like to be able to feel comfortable here with our pets and microorganisms and be able to take care of yourself .

    There are some more houses situated around us, but we live far from town. We like it this way.

    We have a guest room and rent out a small guest apartment under our roof.

    The aim is to carry out a permaculture project with our children and guests that is supervised all year round and can be supported and shared by our guests.

    But there is also a lot to do in the house, cleaning, cooking and washing clothes.
    The three kids speak german and italian, in school they learn french and english. Do you enjoy staying with them?
    Then get in contact and stay with us!

    Normaly we like to offer stays of two to three weeks.

    We traveled around Europe by bike for a year as a family, did voluntary work ourselves and look forward to evenings together with a fire and a beautiful view of the valley.

    Our children grew up speaking German and Italian. It would be nice if we could speak Italian from time to time. In the meantime, however, they have also learned French and English and some practice would do us all good. We would be happy to teach you German or Swiss German...
