Hello helpers!

My name is Joceline (57), I live in a nice house with a big garden just 10 minutes walk from the village Bex, in the swiss region of Vaud. I have four children, two of which are already living by their own, and two (22 and 25 years old) who are still living with me, but they come and go. I also have a cat. We speak French, English, German and Spanish. I love travelling, being outdoors enjoying nature and practicing sports.

Recently we had our first helpex travellers in our home, and I found it to be a really nice experience. That's why I'm looking for open people that can help me with the garden, and some general help when needed. Skills like carpentry will be much apreciated! In exchange for this work I would be happy to show you around the region, and give you tips on how to get the most of your swiss experience.

You will have to help minimum 4 hours a day (week-end included) and help to clean up table and kitchen after meals. Minimum stay 3 days but I am ... more inside

I am Daniel, swiss, 48, always on the move between the german and the italian speaking parts of switzerland. This is my house, in Ticino - the italian speaking part, located in an old quarter of the city of Bellinzona. The area features quite mediterranean climate and beautiful mountains. The lake (Lago Maggiore), Locarno (festivals), Lugano and the italian border are all just ca. 30-45min away. Ticino is popular with visitors and travellers: www.ticino.ch/en/
As the house is somewhat large (seven rooms) and ancient (before 1850) there is always some work to be done.
Current projects (2018):
- reorganization of the electrical installations (wiring, add plugs, lights etc.) -> electricians very welcome!
- building a shelter for bikes
- several little things around.
I offer free accomodation (several bedrooms to choose from, bicycles for use) in this beautiful corner of the world. You offer to help with some practical work, not more than 2-4 hours per day, for a limited time (we ... more inside

We are a couple (39 and 44) with three kids, two boys (5 and 4) and a girl (2). We're living in a beautifully renovated (17th century) farm house. Surrounded by a big garden with an orchard and a vegetable patch. We also keep six chicken, a cat and around ten beehives.
Before having children, we liked to travel the world. We spent time in Asia, Africa and especially South America, where we travelled in our customized car for almost two years. See our website link above.
Even though we're living in a French speaking area, our Family language is German. Moreover, we speak English, French, some Spanish and Danish.
Our little village (around 1200 inhabitants) is situated in the French speaking part of the canton Bern. It has all the infrastructure needed, such as one bank, a post office, bakery, butcher, little grocery stores, schools…even a famous Swiss chocolate factory is located here.
Our area offers a lot of hiking and biking trails and just down the mountain in the Seela... more inside

We bought two country houses in the Swiss Alps three years ago. The place has been used for buddhist meditation for the past 13 years. We are now in the process of renovating the place. This involves wood construction, carpentry, earthwork, plumbery and electric installations. We already installed a 4 KW Photovoltaik System this year and are in the process of setting up our own sewage treatment plant. We continue the work periodically like 7 to 10 days within one to two months. We could need 2-3 people with above mentioned skills or generally handy people. Our next work period will be 3rd to 14th + May. Hope to see you.

I, sometimes we -my daughter and me- live in a big house in the middle of a village. Sometimes I rent out some rooms.
During Summer the tasks are lighter garden work, maybe some cleaning in house, or some renovation work on older furniture. Anyone familiar with cellar wall renovation would be most welcome.
I am fluent in English, Italian, French, of course German. If there is a helper with Finnish mother tongue or maybe Turkish, we could also work a bit on this.
Some helpers found it a convenient place to travel within Switzerland which you will have enough time to do too.
But also the very close surroundings offer a lot of nice possiblities, swimming, walks, biketours etc.
I expect my helpers to entertain themselves during two days out of seven.

Description en français plus bas.

Hi there,

My 19 year old daughter has been a helper and she liked her last experience so much she wants to do it again.
I'm looking for someone who would stay at our place with my family to take care of the animals. We prefer a minimum of three weeks, longer if everyone is happy to do so.



No smokers, no drugs, little alcohol only or not at all, please! Rather host a student between 18 and 24 years old.

You will have your own room in the house, sharing bathroom with two other members of the family.
3 meals a day are provided, you'll probably help yourself for breakfast and either lunch or supper is with the family, depending on the days and everybody's schedule. We have internet (cable, no wifi, but you can connect your phone on ours to have internet on it, plus there's wifi in almost every public place).
We're located in a beautiful part of Swiss countryside, close to the mountain (for hiking, skiing, snowborading) and 12 minut... more inside
