Our home

We are sorry, but won't exchange this summer. We are back 2016 :-)

We offer a large, modern and beautiful house near St. Gallen with a breath taking lakeview (bodensee). We are hillside. We overlook fields from the living room, can see Rorschach and the lake (Bodensee). We are located in a comfortable, safe, quiet area within walking distance to the bakery and a butcher. Bigger stores (grocery) are located at Rorschach.

Our house has four bedrooms.
At upper floor, there are two children's-room, each with one single bed (One with a normal bed, one with a loft bed). One bed is prepared to be extract with a second mattress. In the other childrens room we can lie a mattress to the floor if requested. There is a Flat-TV with PlayStation and Wii in it. Anyhow, we advice a max of 3 childrens.
The Masterbedroom (Groundfloor) has a small (140cm) twin bed and en-suite bathroom consisting of a shower, wash basin and w.c. There is Flat-TV with DVD-Player in this room.
Another bedroom is located at lower floor and can only be accessed through cellar. We usually use this room as the guest room. The room has a sofa that can be changed to a small comfortable twin bed (davenport). If requested we can install a second inflateable bed. Room has central floor heating like the rest of the house. (NO heating while summer)

Living room (groundfloor) has two very big nice sofas, Flat Cable TV and a breath taking view over the lake. Adjacent there is an eatingplace and a large, modern kitchen equipped with modern machines. Kitchen is equiped with Nespresso Machine, induction cooking plate, hot air oven (incl. steamer), microwave, toaster, fridge, freezer etc..

Wireless, broadband internet access is available ground and first floor.

The house has stone floor (except childrens room with wooden floor), fireplace (oven) in living room and a nice garden where raspberries, strawberries and more fruits and vegetables growing each year. There is enough place to do barbeque and eat outside. We have a patio, protected with a glas-roof and electric parasol.

House stand detached on about 800 sqm land, part is "dog-secured" with a fence.
The house comes together with our cat. We expect that you take care for "Leo". Feed and stroke him well and you can be assured that he will not bite ;-) (cat can be seen on some of the pictures).

Who we are

  1. We are a married couple with two girls (8 & 12), a cat and dog. We are both professionals (consultant and social worker) and enjoy travelling when able to get away. We do our first home exchange this summer (2014) with a family from the UK. We are keen to try and hope that all things run well. It sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email and skype first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Switzerland.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

"Bodensee" lake of constance is not far and you can reach it with a 15 min. walk or 5 min. car drive. At Rorschach, the town near the lake, you may take a walk along the lakeside, lend a pedalo, travel over the sea with a boat (liner), go swimming or eat ice cream. The exhibition of the Museum im Kornhaus was completely renewed in winter 2010/2011; it now offers fun for young and old. Interactive stations invite you to join in, to find out, to touch, to try out, to experiment and to learn – an adventure museum, an adventure world.

Rorschach is ready for tourists :-), and you would not be the only one.

Hill side you may do hiking and have wonderful sights over the landscape. Small brooks everywhere, forests and small villages. Of course there are this small farms, Switzerland is famous for. Its not far to the canton of Appenzell. One of the most interesting, aboriginal cantons of Switzerland. (

* 15 min. St. Gallen
The St.Gallen-Lake Constance region offers a great deal of culture with its UNESCO World Heritage site and the Theater St. Gallen. You may go shopping in this wonderful town, have a look at the abbey. What would a textile city like St.Gallen be without a textile museum? The St. Gallen shows exhibitions on Swiss textile production. Linking the past to the present gives surprising impressions of how the industrial section has developed and what its perspectives are likely to be.
