We are a happy family with three boys (born in 2011, 2013 and 2015) and we live in a beautiful individual house in Switzerland. Our village is very well located to explore Switzerland/Europe. From here, you reach Zürich, Basel and Berne in 1 hour, Geneva in 2 hours, Paris in 3.5 hours, Milan in 4.5 hours, the French and German boarder in only 1 hour by train. The train station is a 20 minutes walk from our house.
For our guests, we offer an own appartment with kitchen and bathroom. There are three beds, a TV, a piano in the appartment. We have Netflix and WiFi. We sometimes also have two guests, so you would share the appartment with that other female workawayer. You can live and eat for free. We eat together as a family. Our boys are at school every morning and 2-4 afternoons per week. They are very used to visitors as we already had more than 200 guests. Our kids speak German, French and English fluently. I speak German, French, English and Italian.
You should love animals, because we have one dog (a Golden Retriever) and 2 cats. It is very important for us that you love dogs. You should be non-smoker! You should be female, as maybe you will share the appartment with another female workawayer...It is important for us that you are on time.
We are looking for someone who would like to explore Switzerland/Europe, who loves kids and animals and who is interested in spending time with us, sharing culture and language. We would like our boys to improve/train their French and/or English, so we are looking for guests with high spoken level in English or French.
We can give you references from guests, who have already been here. We had guests from: Australia, USA, Canada, England, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, France, Croatia, Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Denmark, Poland,... Some of them came back for 2-3 times.
We really love doing this, because we find friends all over the world. They become members of our family...

Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje
You could improve your German, French or English with us. You would learn about Swiss life, Swiss culture and you can taste typical Swiss food and other international food. I often speak with our guests in the afternoon, we sit in the chair and chat together. In summer, we have a swimming pool. Often, I go for walks with our guests.

In the morning, you walk the dog for 1-2 hours, do some house cleaning (vacuum cleaning, cleaning kitchen, bathroom, children's room). The rest of the morning is free. When the boys are here in the afternoon, you can play with them, do paintings, read books, go to the forest with them. But often, they also play alone or with the neighbour kids on the road. So entertainment program is more for rainy days... Every weekend is free.
You would set the table before eating and help to clean up after. My husband is a very good cook, he always cooks a big dinner with different plates. For lunch we eat the leftovers. If there isn't enough, you would have to cook some pasta or other easy dishes like you want...
I am a primary school teacher and I teach every morning and one afternoon per week, the other afternoons I am at home as well...

For our guests, we offer an own appartment with kitchen and bathroom, which is located in our beautiful individual house. We have a big garden and behind the house, there is a forest and a mountain. From our house, you have a wonderful view of the Alps (if it is sunny, hehehe). There are three beds, a TV, a piano in the appartment. You can live and eat for free also at weekends, but we eat together as a family. Please note that it is not possible to eat late (after family meals), as in the evening the boys go to bed quite early.
