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 always changing group that works together and shares a community life. 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 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.
Next to the property there is a gas station with small shop. It's is open 7 days a week. For larger purchases you can go to Rapperswil, Hombrechtikon or Stäfa.
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.

This is clearly a budget accommodation. The standard is simple and not comparable to a hotel. People, who particularly like this, will feel here very homely. For people who have higher expectation, we recommend to book a hotel.
No smoking inside
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!
