Black painted room, North orientation. Double bed and sofa. Private bath room with tub, toilet, sink. People usually sleep for more hours than they are used to. Priest house, built in 1750.

The space

In an old house with thick walls, a big cellar and rooftop you will find colourful rooms and some religious accessoires. The bedroom is painted black (of course with a window to the woods!) - come to the garden and the rest of the house if you want to see colours. As a responsible architect, I do not believe in overreacting to old buildings. Be aware that you come to an old house with its imperfections in a area of Switzerland where it is still possible to buy a house at a normal price (However, everything works ,-). Consider my other listings if you travel in a group (up to 8 people is no problem in this house).

Guest access

Come to our garden, we are proud of it! If you are lucky, you can watch the cows grazing next to you while you sunbathe ,-)

Interaction with guests

I like to have a chat with my guests. Feel free to interrupt or leave - you are the guest!

Other things to note

Gänsbrunnen is the entrance to the Naturpark Thal (one of the recognized areas of nature protection by the Swiss government). It's a splendid spot for hiking. On every hill next to our house you find a simple farm providing you with food and drinks. Here you can breathe the pure air of Switzerland, without any inhibitions.

I consider myself lucky to live in a house from 1750. I am happy to adapt to the constraints that go with it. Moreover, I am happy to organize my professional life which starts normally at 6am and ends at 8pm around the night spent in that special building. I need my quiet as much as you might and I appreciate your booking in full awareness of my needs and the houses outdatedness.

Interesting home , which was a former priests house next to a small historic swiss church. Nice area with lots of green , lower level swiss mountains . Be advised that Gideon expects you to sleep soon after the 10:00 pm arrival as the floors are beautifully fashioned ,old wood, but squeaky , and he must rise early to go to work. If you drive, careful manipulation is required by the long narrow driveway, and small enclosed parking space. Cost for Swizterland is quite good, and the bed was comfortable.

Very nice place, quiet and easy to find. The room is big with private bathroom. Everything is very clean and Gideon is very nice to provide the information around. Definitely worth the money!

We had a great stay at Gideons place. We were travelling by bikes, and were warmly welcomed as the sun was setting. Gideon was very helpful with providing us information on were to go dining. Only 6 minutes away is a trainstation that takes you directly to beautiful Solothurn. Solothrun has hepas of bars and restautants-a nice place to hang out and a nice contrast to the countryside location of the house. Gideons house is unique, and you will not find the average IKEA funriture here. Every room painted in another color-a great living experience in middle of handpicked furniture! The house is located "in the middle of nowhere", so extremly quite at night, not traffic and no neighboring houses, and on the other hand very conveniently close to public transport. This was the ideal location for us.

Great location if you love nature and it is a 5min walk to a train station. Gideon is so nice and funny. He gave us ideas on places to hike and even drove us to a mountain top so we can go on a cool adventure.

Perfect stay, nothing to complain about every thing. The room is really lovely, very homely. If every Air B&B hosts are like Gideon, I will never use hotel anymore. Thanks a lot Gideon.*

Meine Muttersprache ist deutsch, ich bin in Ostermundigen aufgewachsen. Gänsbrunnen (St. Joseph en français) est situé tout près du Rideau des Rösti. Ho vissuto nella Valle di Muggio per quattro anni durante i miei studi. I was brought up in a strict christian way which makes self-acception (being gay included) complex. O meu amor é português, gosto muito de Portugal e do Brasil - queria muito visitar todas as partes do mundo lusofalantes. El proximo idioma que quiero mejorar é el español!
