Our home

Our home is a very comfortable, modern, recently renovated detached house on the outskirts of a small village in central Switzerland. There are 3 large bedrooms, one with a double bed and ensuite, another with a single bed and pull out bed and a third with a single bed and cot. There is a spacious open kitchen/living room with a large table that can (and has) seat up to 12. The sitting room has two 2-seater sofas and the "wintergarden" has another dining table and sofa overlooking the pool and garden. Downstairs, there is a laundry room, cellar with table tennis table and cross trainer and a garage. There are two patio areas outside for al fresco dining or just watching the sunset with a drink in the evening. The outdoor pool (9m x 4m) is fenced off and the entire house and garden is safe for children.

Who we are

  1. We are Declan and Maire - an Irish couple living in Switzerland for over 10 years, both working in finance. We have 3 children, Maeve 7, Rosheen 3 and Caoimhe almost 2. We are travelling to Ireland with our next door neighbours, Urs (the local pharmacist) and Sibylle (tennis coach), also with 3 children (Linda 12, Loris 9, and Mili 6)to show them some of Ireland. We would ideally like to choose a 2 week period for the house swap sometime in mid-July. Additional accommodation would be available next door if needed and they also have a pool that could be used.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The location is very peaceful - the back garden looks out on meadows, sometimes frequented by cows. Transport - buses and train are within 5 minutes walk as are hiking and biking trails. The area behind the house is a very popular walking area with a small forest. Zug (3 minutes by train or 15 minutes by bus) is conveniently located between Lucerne and Zurich - each reachable within 30 minutes. It is an ideal base for touring and also has its own lake with numerous bathing areas and water sports activities and spectacular alpine scenery. There are many traditional Summer festivals held locally (see www.myswitzerland.com). We have a few bicycles at the house (including childrens' bikes) but there are bikes lent to tourists free of charge in downtown Zug.
