    Description

    Hi!
    We are Elo and Dario, a couple in our early 30’s. He’s a sound designer and she’s a photographer, and two border collies animate our day-to-day!
    We love hiking and adventures all around, board and video games, being creative together, meeting new people and exchanging ideas.
    We live in a house, in a village called Treyvaux (bus stop to Fribourg 8 mins away). The lake de Gruyère is 5 minutes away, the mountain peak “La Berra” 10 minutes away, and there are plenty of beautiful nature spots all around - we’d be happy to tell you all about them. And when it gets too hot, we jump in our swimming pool!

    Help

    When the weather is nice we’re working on building a new wooden flooring for our terrace outside, in the idea of making a veggie/flower garden!

    Other help might include cleaning the house and/or taking the dogs for a walk if the feeling with them is good :)

    PLEASE READ BEFORE MESSAGING US:

    -We prefer hosting 2 people at a time (couple or friends)
    -Last minute usually works better for us
    -From experience our ideal length for stays is around 10 days
    -Occasionally we look for house/pet sitters whilst we go on holidays, if that fits your profile (aka. dog person + house cleaner) don't hesitate to reach out any time :)

    At the moment we would prioritise someone skilled with: various DIY projects skills, wood working, gardening, and/or general maintenance/cleaning

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We offer a comfortable private room with a double bed and a private bathroom. The kitchen is available to make your own breakfast (provided) and we usually share lunches and dinners together.

    In case the room is already occupied, a custom van (modern, with stand-able height, very pinterest-like) with a big double bed and kitchenette is available as plan B. It's parked right in front of the house, with access to the same bathroom inside the house!

    In the village (8 mins walk) you will find a supermarket, a bakery, a nice restaurant, post office and a butcher. There's also a bus stop there that will take you to Fribourg train station/center in about 25 minutes.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The village is quiet and peaceful, sheeps, cats and cows are neighboring the house. We really love living in the center of Switzerland and being so close to big cities (Fribourg, Bulle, Bern and Lausanne, easily reachable with the great public transportation system).
    Nearby cheese and chocolate factories/museums are a must-see, and leaving without having tried our typical dish “the fondue” would be almost a crime!
