Who we are

  1. A recently retired couple, we are now free to travel and look forward to exchanging our home with other like-minded people. We were in hotel management for over 35 years and speak English, French, German and Italian. Gerwin spent the last 10 years running golf clubs and is still involved in organising tournaments and refereeing on a national basis. Marian is enjoying retirement, busy with golfing. hiking, drawing and playing bridge, etc. etc. Our daughter is grown-up and living close by. We have done three home-swops. Being house-proud ourselves,, we would take the same care of your home as we do for ours. We do not smoke, have no pets, and so our travel schedule can be flexible. We look forward to receiving some interesting offers and are particularly interested in dates in the winter for warm climates. We shall be happy to exchange e-mails with any potentially interested home-exchangers.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our apartment is situated above a small, wine-growing village on the mountain-side, 1'000 ft above Lake Geneva, with a 180° panoramic view of the alps, the lake and the towns of Vevey and Montreux, as well as of Evian across the lake in France. A cog-wheel railway runs from Vevey up through the vineyards to the Mont Pélerin. We are 50 mins from Geneva Airport, 1hr from Bern (capital of Switzerland), 3 1/2hr from Milan, Italy or from Paris, France (TGV). Although Switzerland is in the center of western Europe, it is not a memeber of the European Community, and it has its own currency, the Swiss Franc. We are in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, but many people speak English. A popular tourist destination, excursions can be made by car, lake steamer,or train to multiple mountain villages, castles, historic towns, museums, e.g. Zermatt, Gstaad, Gruyère, Interlaken, Lausanne, Lucern. For the winter there are 20 or more ski-resorts within 1 1/2hrs drive. Wonderful walking opportunites, by lakes, rivers or in the mountains. A golfers' paradise, there are 12 magnificent golf courses situated within a 1 1/2hr drive (The closest is 10 min. away). Our part of Switzerland is home to some of the finest gourmet restaurants in the world (e.g. Chez Rochat, in Crissier,(25 min. by car). Tradition restaurants abound, and the 5 star Hotel Le Mirador is right next door.
