This is a project for sustainable living and culture. We did buy an old Mill on a river in the beautiful swiss mountain valley "Schangnau". Over the years we converted the old farmhouse and mill into a cultural centre (arts and music) with the possibilities for living. Currently there are six flats for all-year living, a big communal space for concerts and events, big organic gardens, wild natural surroundings for camping and guestrooms.
We look for travellers to help us maintaining the house and gardens. We look for people who want to stay one week or longer. The work will be adapted to your skills: Gardening, doing firewood, taking care of children or different building work on the houses. Couples or traveller-parties of two people are most welcome. Helpers will have their own room (wood-heating / shared bathroom) with balcony and are welcome to eat with one of the families twice a day. There is internet-access.
A small village with shop can be reached within 15 minutes. Facilities are basic and since the swiss mountain climate is rough please bring warm clothing and good shoes. In summer there is fantastic swimming in pools on the river. In winter this area gets a lot of snow and skiing and snowboarding is daily business (2 ski-areas are reached with a 10 minutes drive).
Our place is a great starting point for trekking into the fabulous swiss mountains with several incredible peaks within a one-day trek.
