Our home is a centre for the practice of Yoga for the local community in one of the most beautiful parts of Switzerland. It offers easy access to many safe walking trails in the southern Swiss Alps, as well as being close to Chamonix and the northern Italian Alps via the Great St Bernard Pass. Hilary and I are retired teachers and, although still fit and active, can foresee a time when we will need help to manage our big garden. In part, that is one reason for hosting Helpx guests. But more importantly, we think Helpx can provide a means, through mutual help, of enabling mountain lovers like ourselves to share the joys of living in this beautiful, but expensive part of the world. To begin with, since we still travel quite a lot ourselves, we envisage taking guests only during the rapid-growing months of April, May and June. That could change as time goes by, however. For 3/4 hours` work a day (Monday to Friday) guests would be provided with full board and lodging, leaving weekends free. Guests need to know, however, that we are vegetarians (though not vegans), that we are a non-smoking home and that we can`t accommodate pets. They should also enjoy gardening and be fit and strong enough to take on some of the heavier chores. For those wishing to explore the limitless walking opportunities in the area, we can provide a huge amount of detailed advice and information.
