Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a Dutch family of 5; three children: a girl of 17, and two boys of 14 and 12. Dirk works as a HR professional in Zurich sinds 2007, Lydia works from home as a translator/editor. We have made an exchange once with France and that was absolutely great. Last year we exchanged with our native country and went to Friesland province to sail and that was also a fantastic experience.
    Our boys are asthmatic but fortunately have no allergies, so we do not smoke but do own a dog (6 yr old Frisian Stabyhoun).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Thalwil is a lovely town, with superb connections by car as well as public transport to Zurich (within 15 mins by bus/train/car) and all of Switzerland. Our house is only 50 m away from the bus stop which takes you in 2 mins to the centre of Thalwil and the train station.

From our house you can walk into the woods (only 200ms) and then you can wander off for lovely walks into the woods, there are mountain bike trails, and an "adventure walkway". It is very nice to enjoy the "great outdoors" here. The beach of the Zurich lake is only a drive of 5 mins away, there are many "Badi" places where the swimming is really great and often there are playgrounds and lawns where you can rest and often eat the traditional "Zürcher Bratwurst" after a dive in the Lake.

Thalwil has all the advantages (lots of shopping, supermarkets etc) of a small town; but also is close to Zurich which offers a lot of cultural and shopping highlights. There are nice musea, nice shopping areas and lots of things to do in Zurich.

The higher mountains are only one hour away, but Thalwil is also close to the Wildpark Zurich and the Sihlwald, woods where you can wander far into the "Inner Schweiz". In winter and summertime, you can do all kinds of outdoor activities in and around Thalwil, ranging from skiing in winter (a drive of 45 mins to Flumserberg or one hour to Graubunden) to waterskiing in summer, hiking and climbing, tennis and golf, it's all here.
