The space

Please find information on how to reach our place at the bottom of the page.

This is an old rustic house where we host international people who would like to visit our magic place called Synergy Village. We would like to welcome openminded people who are interested to experience this unique place. It's the perfect place to meet new people and interact with other cultures.

The dormitory is in the top floor of this house that was built in year 1754. The interior is mostly still in its original form (NOT renovated, but well maintained) and suitable for people who like the rustic feeling of old traditional buildings.

Features of the accommodation:
- Large dormitory room
- Up to 6 people in the room (other guests)
- Male and female mixed
- Sitting area in the room
- Shared kitchen, bathroom and common area
- Bed is ready from 14:00, you can come from 10:00 and drop off your luggage

Guest access

Guests are encouraged to explore the beautiful property. There are signs that show where to go (Grotto, Look-out, Garden of Eden). The property captivates visitors with its extraordinary natural beauty. There is a grotto with waterfall, streams, gardens and meadowland. People describe the place as «a magic oasis».

Interaction with guests

We run our place with international volunteers who are there to welcome the guests and take care of the house. The volunteers create an ever-changing group of young travelers who work and live together. Guest are invited to be part of it and get the most out of their stay.
We, the owners, are there from time to time. Beside our project Synergy Village we also have other jobs/ studies so we cannot be around all the time. When we get the chance, we love to meet our guests and spend good times with them.

The neighbourhood

The property is located a two minutes walk from the beautiful Lake of Zurich. The close town Rapperswil is definitely worth a visit: it has a castle, old historic town, boulevard with restaurants and wooden bridge across the lake. Some people like it more than Zurich.
There is a small shop 1.5km away (Volg in Uerikon). For larger purchases you can go to Rapperswil (5km), Hombrechtikon (3km) or Stäfa (4km).
There is a burger restaurant 1km away.
For anything else you might need you can go to Rapperswil.

Getting around

The train station Feldbach is a 10 minutes walk away. There are trains every 30 minutes to Zurich and Rapperswil (train line S7) and a bus to Hombrechtikon. The train ride to Zurich is 30 minutes.

We usually have free bikes that you can use. However, no guarantee for availability and functionality.

Other things to note

This is clearly a budget accommodation. The standard is simple and not comparable to a hotel. People, who particularly like the rustic ambient, will love it. For people who have higher expectations regarding the standard, this is probably not the best option.

Devi and Esra have a wonderful farmhouse, only 30 minutes by train to Zurich and yet in a peaceful, countryside area. I loved it so much I came back after visiting last year. You can get to the lakeside & swim just a short walk across the road and there's a sauna (just set the fire and it's ready in 2 hrs). I stayed in the top dorm which is very spacious and has a sofa, very unlike a usual dorm room - I enjoy the interaction with other guests and volunteers. The wifi is also excellent. There are 2 garden lounges to relax in, and an outside dining table with umbrella, a grotto and a lookout where you can see the lake. There's bikes to use for free and so much good walking and cycling in the area. There's sculptures, an orchard to sunbathe in, a studio which can be used for yoga and plenty more to explore. For me, this is heaven and so relaxing after my city life. As a very affordable place to stay, I don't expect the world, but these hosts give a lot and are very friendly and accommodating. A real home from home!

It was a very natural living experience in Zurich, people living in the Synergy Village tend to have all a candid spirit. I feel Devi has a 6th sense to chose guests who share a benevolent essence. So, if you are one of these people, you will definitely feel welcomed and at peace here.

I had a fantastic stay in Synergy Village. I was in the dorm which was spacious and tidy. The volunteers and the guests were bright and friendly. It was like coming home to a family every night.

The place was really charming. It was a pity that I arrived that late and left early in the morning, so I couldn't enjoy all the beauty of the house. Katarina was gorgeous and helped me with everything. So friendly! I was sleeping in a big shared room with 3 more people, woman and men. Important is,to travel with ear pax, what I didn't bring with me this time. My sleep wasn't the best, but I enjoyed really much the drive and good vibe of this house. Thank you! It was a very nice experience.

Hi! I'm Devi, a young entrepreneur with many projects and ideas. I have an international background and speak many languages.
Our place Synergy Village is a meeting place for international people and cultural exchange. I'd like to invite everyone to be part of it and get the most out of their stay. We are a young team that runs the place: my brother Ezra, our employees Morgane and Rémi and all of our volunteers who are an ever-changing vibrant group of young travelers.
Currently, I am doing my Master in Natural Resource Science and working part-time at the university as a researcher. Therefore, I moved away from Synergy Village to be close to the university. I'm often around during daytime on weekdays.
We always do personal check-in. So one of our team member will be there to welcome you. I'm very much looking forward to meet everyone in person when I'm there!
