Who we are

  1. Rona and I lived here for 17 years. Together we have 5 children.
    The youngest two study in the US. Nathalie (20) in Santa-Barbara and Maxime (18) leaves in mid-august to study in Orange (California). Since the last four years our kids have been in boarding schools in the US, so we have lived here alone and have travelled extensively. Rona is an artist whose main medium has been photography and more recently she started to paint. She has exhibited throughout europe and if you come this way you will be able to enjoy her body of work I retired 4 years ago from a 38 year marketing career with an American Multinational having moved only 17 times worldwide. We love to travel and explore new frontiers. We have never let our
    house, but are ready for a new way to enjoy life.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Ideally situated on lake Geneva, we view on one side the Jura mountains and the lake and the Alps (including Mont-Blanc) at the other. We are surrounded by vineyards as well as farmland. Less than 100 meters from our home there is a beach where people can come and pic-nic, swim or waterski and sail We are 10 km from Geneva and 6 km from the French border. Half an hour drive from the Airport. Excellent bus service exists to town. Riding the bus is safe, not expensive and comfortable everywhere in Geneva.
We are less than an hour away from alpine skiing. All sports are practiced in and around Geneva and any special needs can be met. Shopping is 10 minutes away and you can also elect to shop in France. (15 minutes away by car). Geneva is International and everybody speaks at least two languages. We estimate that 75% of the population understands and speaks english. We are also close to Rome, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Venice, Florence, or the Cote d'Azur in less than one hour and a half airline trips.
