Who we are

  1. We are a married couple Josef (62) and Teresa (64) and are just starting to slow down and enjoy the good life. Our children (32/30/28/26) have left the house and come back to visit us occasionally. Most of the time there are just the two of us living in the big house. As we run our business online, we are very flexible with exchanges as we can work anywhere where we have a fast and reliable Internet connection where we can attach our Laptops to. We have made a few exchanges so far, one in South Africe, one in Brazil, one in Sweden, one in Berlin/Germany and the last one in Norway. All exchanges have worked well, both parties were always very happy.
    We are fascinated by the idea of exchanging and are aiming at longer exchange periods to get to know other places really well. We have been traveling a lot in our life but are still curious to visit new places. Right now we like to discover some interesting place, having in mind, to transfer our domicile in the future. We are looking forward to receiving your offer and assure you that we would take great care of your property as we expect you to do with ours.
    If you would like to spend some time in this beautiful house in the southern part of Switzerland (Italian speaking), please contact us.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Ideally located for a relaxing or active holiday in the southern part of Switzerland. Vico Morcote is a typical local village and attracts visitors from all over the world and is known for it's mild climate and number of sunny days per year. Vico Morcote has only about 250 habitants, there are two restaurants, no shop, no post office but the nearest location to find virtually everything is the big shopping area Grancia which is only 15 minutes by car. There are other places closer by like for example Melide which is only 5 km and has a supermarket, bakery, butcher, pharmacy, etc.
It's an ideal place for people who love culture, nature and like walking, hiking, mountain biking, swimming in the lake or visit the picturesque cities of Lugano, Locarno or Bellinzona. Even Lucerne, one of the famous places is only 2 hours by car. For the culturally interested Milano is only 1 hour away, Venice or Florence about 3.5 hours.
Although we are not living in a typically 'snow village', the nearest place to ski is only one hour's drive away and some winters we even get snow right at home.
