Our home

We offer a fresh, renovated, luminous apartment at the third floor of a building on one of the rare pedestrian streets of Geneva. It has 3 bedrooms (1 king size bed-wedding gift from India, 1 child bed, 1 futon in the guest room and the living room can accommodate up to 3 supplementary beds). A living, dining room nicely furnished with a wooden Indian table and a leather couch complemented by bargain hunted furniture. It opens on a balcony with a small wooden table and 2 chairs. We can see the lake that is less than 100 meters away. Our kitchen is well equipped and has all appliances: oven, microwave, fridge, kitchen-aid ... There are 2 bathrooms with WC. Our neighbours are very nice and quite international. Many languages are spoken: from Japanese to Brazilian and of course French and English.
There are many activities organized by the kids club downstairs our place. The Pedestian street is usually very lively, mainly in the summer, where the kids of the neighborhood play together. The lake shore is also a very nice play ground.
We have lots of children books and DVDs in French, Arabic and English. Children toys as well.
