Family home with Sauna in Solothurn, Switzerland

Summer 2022 is fixed - we are looking forward to nothern Jutland, Denmark.

We live in a charming small town situated on the foot of the Jura mountains. Zurich, Bern, Basel and Lucerne can be reached within one hour by car or by public transport.
Our home is a bright detached house built in the 1940s, completely renovated in 2011 and well maintained. There is a spacious living room / dining room / kitchen and the master bedroom on the ground floor. The upper floor offers three bedrooms with a total of six beds. We have got a lot of games, books (in German, English and French) and a piano. Baby facilities (cot and high chair) are available. Downstairs you can find a guest room with two more beds. In the cellar, a climbing wall, a table to play tabletop football and a dartboard will shorten long evenings and rainy days.
We keep our home very neat and tidy. We take care of our stuff and guarantee to treat your property with respect.
The garden provides a wooden tower with swings and a sand pit and plenty of hiding places. It is completely fenced. If you come around in summer or autumn, we would be happy if you water our garden. In return, you can harvest vegetables, salads and all kind of berries. Since 2021, we have got a sauna under our balcony.
Car exchange is possible, our Dacia Lodgy offers 7 places. Four children seats are available.
To discover the surroundings by bike, we can provide four adult bicycles (one of them electric), an electric cargo bike and several children’s bikes. There are numerous bike trails in the neighbourhood, also flat ones, e. g. on the banks of the rivers Aare and Emme.

Lifestyle

During our first home exchange in 2013, one of our tasks was to keep three Dutch hens alive. This turned out to be easier than we have feared and on the whole much more fun than we had imagined. After managing successfully to care for these hens, we started thinking about keeping some on our own, and meanwhile, seven hens live in our garden and provide us with fresh eggs. They need some food and water every day, but we can organise someone else if you plan to be absent for a longer period.
During our subsequent exchanges, we took care of cats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, fish and a pot full of tadpoles. We don't have a small zoo yet, but two friendly tomcats moved in 2019.
