Need definitly help in July or later .. as i will get 3 hens :-)

Maximum stay 10days/2 weeks, for 1 or 2 helpers

I live near the capital of Switzerland, in a small house with a small garden. The location is beautiful: in a small village just out of Berne.

There is always something to do: lots of gardening (mostly weeding and mowing the "lawn"), cleaning... Sometimes hard work like trimming trees, and wood work.

I expect 4-5hrs work per day for 5 days a week and 2 off. Accommodation and all meals will be provided and some sightseeing on my days off IF the work is done.

I work shifts in the call center for roadside assistance. So you may be most often on your own, and also working on your own...but as soon as i have the day off: we work / eat together and sightseeing.

You will have your own bedroom (WiFi).
The kitchen and the bathroom have to be shared.
We may cook and eat together, even if not every day because of my shifts

The train station is only 10 min walk away and the airport is 10 min away (bicycle))
A public open air swimming pool (closed during the winter) is about 10 min (bicycle) from here.
Ski slopes are close and there you can also hire ski...if enough snow ;-) (only in the winter!)

There are two bicycles ready to be use for your free time.

I'm 61, speak French, German and English and I'm interested in a lot of things, like genealogy, traveling, languages, music, concerts, friends, making my own jam-marmalade-chutney-syrup and other jars...etc
I'm not vegeterian but if you are i will adapt my cooking.

I would say from myself: i'm a open mind person.

* ONLY Non smoker and sincere person who likes to help should contact.

** I trust that you have your health insurance in case of accident and sickness.

*** Take a bus/train/flight to Bern: i'll pick you up at the train/bus station or at the airport Bern-Belpmoos

*** Please put a photo in your profil: you can see me.. i would like to see you.
