You needs to give a leetle more info. Can you not find one, or not one that is decent? Are the ones you did find if you did find some, or one, not as decent as a backyard? If you did find some, or one, was it more expensive than you thought or can afford?

As to backyards, I would venture that perhaps 1% of EF members live in a freestanding home with a yard, and wildly guessing that several hundred members check in the forum each day, so going straight by the numbers perhaps 3 available yards, maybe one of which might be in Zurich- in other words you might want to ask for a couch to crash on .

For your future travels, I'd recommend signing onto couchsurfing.org for a chance to stay at someone's place for free, meet some great locals and experience an area with insider tips!

Edit: Just seeing Shakey's post!
