  • Description


    We are a family of 4, we are both teachers and love to travel and discover new things.

    We have a big house and a big garden that we enjoy. There is always something to do in the house (cleaning, cooking, playing with the kids) or in the garden.
    In our garden we have 3 chickens.

    We live in a little French village that is directly connected by tram to the city of Basel in Switzerland. Leymen is a quite and peaceful village, you can go for walks, cycle with bikes and discover Alsace, Germany of Switzerland directly from here.

    We love to meet open minded people.
    We speak french, german and english.
