  • Description

    Description

    We are two families living in a house that used to be a small farm in the country side of french speaking Switzerland. We have 6 children (2003, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2008, 2011) that we are homeschooling, which takes time and brings a lot of joy and adventures! We are part of a group of 25 families that are homeschooling partly together their children in a old factory. We also have a big garden with fruit trees and vegetables as we try to produce an important part of our food ourselves. Our house is not connected to the electrical red and we produced our own energy with solar panels and heat with our own wood. Our small community is very dynamic and lively, centered around our projects about alternative education and ecology. We need help for a chicken coop construction this summer. In august 2020.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a very lively small community with much energy, ideas, practices and experience, especially about education and ecology. We have traveled a lot and we appreciate knowing new people and cultural diversity. We live in a beautiful place in the country side, but we are close to everything (in 10 minutes cycling and 25 minutes train you're in Lausanne). We know quite well our region, culturally and naturally, and we can help you discover its beauty and points of interest in many different ways.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a big collective room (that is not directly part of the main flat) that we use for different activities. It has a relatively big (but not very high) mezzanine where you will sleep. There is room to share for up 6 persons to sleep. There is wood heating and cold water in this room but no toilets nor shower, for that you must come in the main flat, just having to walk around the house.
