Our home

We offer a fresh renovated, luminous charming apartment on the upper floor of an Art Nouveau building (1912) with wooden parquet floor and high ceiling with stucco decorations. It consists of 4 bed rooms (1 queen size bed, 3 single beds plus one guest bed). Our Eat-in-kitchen is very well equipped, with granite counter tops. There are two bathrooms. A formal dining room with a piano connected to a bright living room with fireplace are pleasantly furnished with antique furniture and paintings. Our neighbours are very friendly and helpful. In the back of the house there is a nice garden (ping pong table), where the kids of our building play together. We have lots of board games,books and DVD's for children in French, German and some in English. Our English speaking maid is taking care of the apartment twice a week. She would be available for baby-sitting upon request.

Your neighbourhood

Our home is located in the center of Geneva surounded by numerous children friendly public parks. Geneva's old town with its historical monuments, many interesting museums and private collections, the botanical garden and the United Nations attract people from all over the world. We live in a residential area in the city from where all major sights, shopping facilities, restaurants, and theatres are within either walking distance or reachable within a few minutes using public transport. The lake is 5 minutes walking distance. The French Alps with the Mont Blanc and its impressive glaciers, the Italian Alps with Courmayeur, the medieval city of Annecy with its lake, the nice old town of Bern (capital of Switz.) and many other highlights to visit are within 45 minutes to 2 hours drive from our home. In the region of Geneva and Lausanne, there are many famous gourmet restaurants. The local activities: water sport and mountain related activities are easy to reach (sailing could be organized). We would be pleased to help you to plan your stay in Geneva.
