Who we are

  1. We are an active family of four: Caroline (1966) is an interior architect, Valentin (1967) is an architect and furniture designer. Our two great boys (born 1998 and 2003) love playing, biking, climbing and reading.

    We all love to hike and to geocache (www.geocaching.com), to swim, barbecue and to do adventure picknicks in the green with our family and friends, as well as to explore new places and to travel. In winter we love skiing.

    Since 2007 we enjoyed more than ten wonderful exchanges so far and are looking forward to our next swap - maybe with your family? :)

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is located both centrally and suburban. There are many families with children in the near neighbourhood, a great public garden swimming bath is a 5 minutes walk away.
One of the Basel nicest recreation areas with woods for walking, biking and jogging, a beautiful animal park and a brook to play in summer is only a short stroll away.

We can offer bikes for your day trips. Good public transportation (bus, tram) takes you quick and easy downtown Basel within a couple of minutes. Stops are less than 100m away from our home.

You can make excursions to downtown Basel with its charming old town, nice shops, museums, restaurants, zoo, parks and playgrounds.

As a frontier town to France and Germany there are as well the nice landscapes and small villages of the Alsace and Baden-Wuerttemberg to detect. Swiss towns Zurich, Bern and Lucerne or Geneva as well as the lakes and mountains lie within a day trip distance of 45-90 minutes with car or train.
