  • Description


    Hi, Workawayers!

    We are a family of four: Nora (2007) she is studing in Switzerland, Livio (2008), he has just finished school, Verena (1968), and Mario (1969). We decided to move here from Switzerland in 2007 to raise our family in a different lifestyle, connecting with nature.

    When we arrived here we had to rebuild the roof and renovate the rooms of this old country house by ourselves with some help from our friends and relatives.

    Nowadays, we run a small eco-farm with 4 goats, 2 donkeys, 2 horses, our dog, Zibo, 3 cats, and a small army of rabbits and chickens. All the work is done by hand.

    It doesn't matter to us if you are a single person or a whole family; if you are a nature lover, looking for a quiet place, and willing to work, you are welcome!

    If available, you will have your own fully-equipped apartment (bathroom, kitchen with fridge). If all the apartments are being used by our guests, you will sleep in our comfortable caravan that sleeps four people and includes water, heat, and electricity.

    There is NO WIFI, only W-LAN connection (it's a cable connection; most newer computers don't have the right connection, so we'd recommend bringing a converter cable if you want to use it). We ask you to bring your own computer if you wish to use the internet.
