Bye Bye la Suisse 7 - Watch This French Documentary Program

In season 7 of the documentary series Bye Bye la Suisse (7), follow the adventures of three Swiss couples as they relocate to Canada, Bali, and the Canary Islands. The ups and downs of each couple’s journey are recounted in six episodes.


Three couples dream of new horizons abroad: Aline and Fred want to live in the Yukon, Patricia and Romano want to manage a guest house in Bali, and Michael and Tobias are hoping to open a bar in the Canary Islands.

Aline and Fred begin in Montreal, going on to look after sled dogs in the woods of Sacré-Coeur, living in a distant past without water or electricity. Heading north in their caravan, the couple discovers the beauty of the Yukon, but has difficulty obtaining work permits.

Romano heads to Bali first, and starts renovating an existing B&B. Patricia arrives seven weeks later, and is far from impressed with the place. They try to attract guests to their guest house, but when they don’t succeed, they decide to do something different instead.

Michael and Tobias’ bar takes a while to get underway, and by the time work does begin, they’ve found an apartment in Fuerteventura. Eventually, the bar opens with an eventful debut.
