Our home

Our home has been recently renovated and enlarged. Based on a French provençale bungalow style which we've kept, the house is now more of a contemporary style. Large bay windows on both sides of the house flood the inside with lots of light and bring the outdoors in and the indoors out! 4 big bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, on 2 floors, all with up-to-date mod cons. A large 2000m2 garden with mature trees and a big pool make the perfect place to spend time outdoors. We have a bit of a view onto the Lake Leman (Lake Geneva) and the French Alps. A large basement has the home cinema room, office and sauna. WiFi installed on both floors.

Who we are

  1. We are an open-minded, curious and well-travelled couple in our 40's and have 2 lovely and well-behaved teenage daughters. Patrick, who is British/Swiss/Hungarian works in a bank in Geneva and Sabina, who is Swiss/Indian/Pakistani is a part-time stay-at-home-mum and Indian food caterer. We have a part-time housekeeper who could be part of the exchange and a friendly cat called Oliver. Like you, our home is our pride and joy and we're new to home exchanges, so are looking for people with a taste of the good life and caring of their environment. We seek locations with activities for teens deally, although we're not necessarily looking for a resort. Open to all propositions as long as its in the sun!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Only 10min from Geneva International Airport and 15min from the centre of Geneva, our village is a perfect compromise between the city and the countryside. A wine-making area, we live in could be called the suburbs of Geneva, although the notion of 'burbs' here is VERY different to the US! Large open spaces, mostly agricultural, but served by buses and a regular train into Geneva is a 7min drive from our house. There is a shopping centre 5min by car. The closest town is called Nyon and dates back to the Roman times, so lots to see for the history buffs with museums and galleries. The lakeside has many restaurants, boat stations, fishing villages and beautiful walks. Things to do? For our preferred exchange dates, Christmas time, skiing is THE main attraction. Well-known ski resorts such as Verbier is 1.5 hrs away, and the closest one to the house is only a 15min drive.We would be happy to help you with our favourite suggestions. Visit local winemakers and taste the local produce, take the train into Geneva for the day. Castles and old mansions to visit. Golfers can do their thing about 10min from the house. Horseriders too. France is also a 5min drive from the house. Trains take you all over Switzerland - a very eco-friendly and relaxed way of seeing our splendid region and country.
