About Our Family

We love to discover new places. In summer time we like swimming, hiking and biking.Ski is our favorite during winter season.

Although our four "children" are growing older, we like to spend time and vacations together when possible. Three of them are still students (psychology, medical doctor and economics). They might have to work during summer, but we can possibly be four adults all together if some of them are able to join us for summer vacation.

We are responsible and tidy and will take good care of your home.

We love animals, but due to allergy bedrooms must be free of pets.

Lifestyle

We like to hike mountains, skiing during winter time, to travel to see new areas and to meet new cultures and people. For an exchange we will during summer time be interested in locations with nice temperatures and eventually close to beaches. We also appreciate city life with concerts, cafes etc.
