  • Description


    Enjoy the wonderful center of Switzerland with mountains and lakes, while helping us with house and garden in Menzingen.
    Hello helper! You’re welcome to spend time in Switzerland for some help in exchange.
    My husband and I are 61 and 55 years old. We speak German and a little bit of English and French. We live in a big house. Our home is immersed in the green and it takes only 20 minutes by car to the city of Zug. Zug is located between Zurich and Lucerne.
    There is a lot to see in Central Switzerland and there are a lot of cultural offers. We’re located next to the Alps and the lakes are perfect for bathing during summer.
