Program Details

You dont need a specific experience in housekeeping but goodwill and to be well organized.
Your creativity and yummy recipes interests us !
In our ecovillage in Grandvaux we adopt an ecological and community-based way
of living. We live in relatively small private rooms
(some of them have private bathroom and kitchen)
and we have big shared spaces (cafeteria, party rooms, garage, multi-purpose rooms).

The food is usually vegetarian and organic and we share as many things as possible in our everyday life, material and immaterial.
