  • Description


    Hi There! my name is Hanno and I am a single male, working at my home office at the moment. Living with me is my 18 year old nephew, after his father passed away in 2020. I am restoring my old farm house in my spare time, besides other hobbies such as work on classic cars, my sport boat and my camper. I also have a big garden that can be worked in by volonteers, but I myself do not (want to) have "green fingers".

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I am a foreigner in Switzerland myself, and learned a lot over the past 23 years that I've been living here. I can tell you a lot about this country and its traditions, mostly by sharing with you the mistakes and failures I made in that time :-). I speak Dutch (native language), English, French and German, good enough to help you if you are learning these Languages and need some practice experience. I am not a language teacher. Also, I am trying to live a carbon neutral life by Recyclings and re-using as many resources as possible. However, I keep things in balance and do have a couple of cars and a speedboat :-).

    In the winter, almost all of the work will be in the house. Mainly this would be housekeeping like cooking, cleaning watering plants and laundry. We are a small household, so this means that it can be done in 2 to 3 hours. If or when the volunteer is able and willing to do more and/or to learn more, in the direction of some DIY work like painting or carpentry, this can also be done. However, in the winter and during office hours, I tend not to have much of this kind of work.

    In the summer, the above also has to be considered and besides that, also depending on the volunteers capabilities and preferences, there is a lot of gardening to do and the DIY work on the outside of the house can be done.

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    I like to speak in- or listen to the 4 languages that I know well. Aoppart from some practical words and frases, I don't realy need to learn any other language, but even if I don't speak your language, and you don't master one that I do speak, we will get along with the help of hands and gestures and, of course, Google translate :-).

    Hiking, cycling (bikes, both traditional bikes, mountain bikes and E-bikes available, free of charge), visiting historic sites, small town amusement (bars restaurants) and a beautiful surrounding nature. Big garden with a swimming pool and BBQ area for the summer. In my time off during summer, I like to take my boat to one of the lakes, do some hiking or just hang out at home.

    We have enough parking space but most of it is not exactly level. This means that in order to sleep in the camper, it has to be leveled. However, we have enough beds inside!
