  • Description


    We live in a beautiful old farmhouse in the countryside close to the border with Switzerland (30 min drive from Zuerich). We also have a huge, peaceful garden to relax in and a forest to roam through. Public transportation is about a 30 min, hilly bike ride away, but we leave the house often and can offer rides to the train station.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are a multicultural family (Dutch, Swiss, American and Spanish) and love getting to know other people. We could share meals and interact while working on projects together, or take the visitor on an occasional outing with the family. The setting we live in is very quiet and relaxing, so we would also respect if the person staying wanted to take advantage of our setting for some nature and quiet time.

    We are looking for someone to come stay with us and help us with projects in the garden and the forest. This year for example we are planning on cleaning up some fallen trees in the forest, build a stone wall on the property, and prepare for planting some old fruit tree varieties, amongst other things. We are also open for other (eco) projects.
    We would love some help with these projects. If the person enjoys cooking or is willing to occasionally help with the kids (2 and 7 years old) like playing a game, or sports, that would be great, but is not a must.
    We speak English, Spanish, Dutch and German, but would prefer someone who also speaks German, so our common language at the table can be German. One of our goals is to improve our children's level of German during the summer (they are native Spanish speakers), so speaking German around the house is important.

  • Hébergement


    We offer an outdoor wooden cabin for sleeping, with access to bathroom and kitchen in the main house. The cabin is only 30 meters from the main house.
    There is also an option of tent camping in our forest (or with campervan).
    We generally have one sit-down meal a day with the whole family.
