Our home

The barn was built in 1890. It belongs to my husbands family since a long time. My husband restored the redwood barn to a very unique, comfortable living space. The home is very child oriented, we have a piano, a little playloft on the first floor ( which can also be used as a sleeping area. There is a bed and a old-style bath tub on ower balcony to use during the summer time.The barn has many windows and glass doors. Close to the main house there is a workshop and studio which also can be used as a additional sleeping space or office. In the summer time there is a lot of food which you can enjoy out of the garden.

Who we are

  1. Montana is american and is working since 22 years as a builder in California, Hawaii and Switzerland. Since 8 years he also grows and sells cut flowers out by the street in a flower stand ( Like we have the honor system in Switzerland ). My name is Magdalena and I grew up in Bern. The last 3 years I have lived in California with my husband and have worked as a make-up artist and costumer for television, film and the fashion industry. We have 2 daughters, Chloe Elia is 5 and Zora Lou is 3 years old. Soon they will start kindergarten and school and we would like for them to get to know Switzerland too. So now we are thinking of moving back and getting setteld down. The house swap seams like a good idea for us. We would get a easier head start and you could enjoy a nice vacation. We hope to hear from other parents that are looking to share what we have built here in California..

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are located in the hart of the wine country of california. There are many quality tasting rooms and production facilities with in a 30 minute drive from our home. Traveling in a very rustic area, small country roads can take you all the way to Napa Valley 1 hours drive. A nice view of a sleeping volcano Mt.St.Helena can be enjoyed from our yard. The Rusian river valley will take you to the Pacific ocean also in about 1 hours drive way. On you way there you will pass Redwood forests, parks for hiking and camping. We do not golf but if I would there is the most stunning public golfclub in the redwoods! Its a plcae that has 8 months of warm weather and the other 4 months are sprinkel with lots of sun shine.
