Ecological living is your passion ? Looking for a supportive and inspiring experience in a fun environment? Come join us!

We have created the first ecovillages of french part of Switzerland, in beautiful sites.

La Smala is the mother association, which runs the Eco-Houses owned by the cooperative Bâtir Groupé, with convivial meals open to the public, training of animators, permaculture gardens and an ecological way of living. We have 2 ecovillages already in function since 2016, and growing.

In both of our Ecovillages 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.


We are a team of volunteers. And we are looking for creative and enthusiastic people interested in decorative ebenisterie, woodwork and/or communicating on our activities and/or editing videos about our ecological communities in Grandvaux and Cheiry.
