Before having children, we liked to travel the world. We spent time in Asia, Africa and especially South America, where we traveled 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 Swiss-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 the famous Swiss chocolate factory Camille Bloch is located here.

Description en francais plus bas.

WE REALLY ENJOYED HOSTING OUR FIRST HELPERS, THANK YOU ALL, BUT FOR SOME OTHER PERSONAL REASONS WE WON'T TAKE ANYONE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS.

Hi there,

My elder daughter has been a helper herself and she liked her experience as much as we did having our first helpers at home.
We're looking for someone who would stay at our place in our 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! We do expect helpers to be reliable. 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... more inside

We are two brothers taking over the family farm and turning it to organic production. We have cattle (~30 cows) and various animals (chickens, 2 ducks, 2 geese, a dog and a cat) cereal production (wheat and barley that we will use to brew our beer www.volottaz.ch), an orchard and a vegetable garden big enough for our own consumption and to produce sirups, jams and surplus that we sell in Le Vaud.
The village is right between Lausanne and Geneva (40km away from both) and offers us a beautiful view on the alps and the lake of Geneva.
We are looking for nice young and motivated people ready to help us in our various works...

My husband and I live above the city Sion up to 1200 m. We breed boot-goats and "Appenzeller-Spitzhauben" hens, both kind of animals come from the foundation pro specie rare. We own land and forest field. In spring the branches, trees and the land must be cleaned and the fences for the goats must be set up and possibly repaired. The tasks in the summer time are mowing and making hay. Further more the house and the stable have to be cleaned. To summarize the main work needs to be done outside and with the animals and the land. As we have a lot of hard work we seek for strong people .
We have no electricity, place isolated, mountain area ,savage,food: mainly vegetarian, place to sleep: under tents, shower outside, duration: 1 - 2 weeks

Hi Everyone!
We are a family-and-friends-based non-profit association who runs this meeting place on a property which was used as a traditional farm back in the days. It's a beautiful place with a grotto, waterfall, stream, ponds, gardens, farmland, a barn and old traditional houses. Also a private spot at the Lake of Zurich is part of the property. Our organisation is set up by four board members (Devi, Ezra, Selina, Tsewang) who manage the place. In addition, we have several active members who regularly come to visit and help on the property. We are uncomplicated, easy-going and open-minded people. We travel a lot and have an international background.

Our place is a meeting place for local and international people. Everyone who visits is part of the community that is always set up by the current visitors since nobody lives there permanently (except for board members). It's a "Place of Inspiration" where people can be creative, try new things, develop their own ideas and learn ... more inside

We're a family with two children (7 and 3 years old), running a permaculture project at 1300 mt. on the Swiss alps, in a small historical village served by public transports. We have a veggie and medicinal garden and few ducks. Barbara teaches permaculture and Joe is an experienced guide in wild and medicinal herbs.
Help needed in the veggie garden (mulching, fencing, etc.), in the house (housekeeping and cooking, babysitting) as well as for harvesting and transforming wild plants. Families are welcome.
We look for motivated volunteers that wants to experience our way of living; therefore if you need a place in Switzerland as a basis to look for jobs, this is not the place for you.
Being at our place you'll become part of a tribe. Help in daily tasks is required and we'll be happy to share with you trekking to enjoy the beauty of our area and to harvest wild medicinal herbs. We'll be pleased to share with you our knowledge about growing plants as food and medicine, making our own... more inside

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,
I-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 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.

Please: first contact only over e-mail from your own profile.
