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. Fac... more inside

hi everybody!
We live in a big house in the Swiss alps, in the Italian part, in an amazing spot!!
We are grandmother Laura, mother Catalina, my son Om (9 years old) and another young boy, Sami (15 years old) , who lives here.
From September 2018 to February 2019 I (Catalina) will be at school 2 evenings per week plus some Saturdays all day long, and Laura is going to travel…so I need some help at home with the children.
Mainly I ask to be present for Om and Sami on Tuesdays from 16:00 on, and cook dinner, Wednesday morning wake them up and give breakfast to them, then again Thursday from 16:00 on, and Friday morning….
This is the main thing, but also helping with the house keeping in general.
If you can teach some music, or English or some other interesting things to the boys and to us, would be super!
We offer food and a room.
The house is big, it has a garden, an atelier, living rooms, massage room, beemer to watch films on a wall, big kitchen… and 10 ro... more inside

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 f... more inside

Hello helpers

We are a family of three, Isabel, Uli, and our son Isidro, age 7. We live in the district of Appenzell, Switzerland with a beautiful view of the Rhein Valley and the Austrian and Swiss mountains. We speak fluent German, Italian and French and some English, Czech and a bit of Spanish.

Help is needed in ecological house building, gardening and general housework. We are looking for motivated helpers from April to October for about two-week stays. We expect half day of work, 4 hours a day, weekend off. Schedule may vary depending to the work needs and weather conditions.

Our old farmhouse burned down in 2007; however, we started in 2013 with the construction of a new house, with a focus of using natural local materials such as wood, wool and clay. Since August 2016 we have been living in the house, however, it is still a work in progress. Our friends laugh and joke that it is “the best furnished construction site they have ever seen”.

If you want to see more pictures, then click on my first Facebook link above. I am posting all pictures from Helpers that stayed here, for everybody to see! Also some of my helpers have posted their own comments about staying at my place.

I live with my son Sven (21y), but no longer with a cat, sorry, in an old farmhouse, converted to 3 apartments in Madiswil, a small town between Berne and Basel. I have the second floor apartment (4 bedroom). One of the 2 remaining apartments is rented out to a young couple with two little boys. The other Apartment is used by my son. Helpers have free internet connection.

We share a our garden with the other tenants. There is also a small swimming pool and a large covered BBQ area. We also have a well equipped fitness room, Sauna and Solarium (Tanning Bed) which is under construction right now, but still can be used.

We are situated in the green back hills of the Wyna valley in southern Aargau. An ideal landscape for walking and mountainbiking.

We are not a professional farm but partially self-sufficient smallholders with one hectare of garden, orchard, pasture and forest. As new owners, we are in the process of establishing a large veggie garden including a permaculture section and restarting a chicken run. Our farm is situated outside the village, surrounded by our land. Nevertheless the next train station is only a 10 minutes walk away.

We offer to honest and motivated people the opportunity to stay with us for a while. We are a family with one teenager and 2 adult children which season-wise also live with us. We speak German, Italian, English and a little bit French. We don’t mind for smokers but only outside the house. We love good food and a glas of good wine but we can tolerate only moderate alcohol consumption. You’ll be invited to join us for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We ... more inside

After several years of travelling and living in New Zealand I`m here as a host now and looking forward having you with us. I enjoy having people from all over the world in the house, sharing their culture and stories with.

Me, my parents and our foster child live in a beautiful valley of Emmental. Its a quiet place surrounded by nature and some other farmhouses. To arrive by public transport is pretty easy.
