About our home

Our home, built on a 15000 ft lot, is bright, clean, and extremely calm, far from traffic noise and sourrounded by a nice garden with flowers and trees. It has a functional, fully equipped kitchen with adjoining dining room.
The covered deck overlooks the garden and BBQ. It offers views of the highest European mountain (Mont Blanc), the Alps to the East and the Jura Mountains to the West.

Upstairs there is a large bedroom with a queen size bed, a small desk, Sat. TV, stereo, VHS - CD - DVD. On the same floor there is my "office", fully equipped with MAC & PC, FAX, Phone, 2Mbps ADSL, WiFi, and a bathroom (tub). Downstairs there is another small room with a sofa-bed that can sleep two people. A bathroom (shower), a visitor toilet, and a living room with sofas and fireplace.

In the basement there is a laundry room, cellar, furnace, spare room, and my "hobby room".

There is a garage, a car port and plenty of private parking space.

More about us

  1. I am a retired former airline Director and I still enjoy certain travel privileges so I can always travel anywhere ...but I never know, for sure, which day I will arrive, hence my dates are always "very flexible".

    I have two sons living in Palo Alto and two grandchildren.

    My wife and I have been living more than 30 years, due to my job, in many different countries, including the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, USA. We are both fluent in English, French, Italian. After retiring from the Airlines business I was very much involved in a Hi-Tech Software Company that one of my sons created in Palo Alto during the Dot Com era.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

It is considered to be the best location just outside Geneva and its famous lake, the largest body of water in Europe. Most of the international community (United Nations and its many Branches, the CERN, where WWW was invented) live in this area. It is just across the Swiss border, 10 minutes only to reach downtown Geneva by car or with public bus service. 7 minutes to the Geneva international airport (french side) and its train station served by the fast TGV trains, Paris can be reached in about 4 hours, or by 45 minutes flight. 15 minutes to the cableway that takes you to the top of the Jura mountains for trekking or skiing. Less than one hour by car to Chamonix and the Mont Blanc. Or drive 20 minutes more thru the longest European tunnel and you are in Italy.
