About our home

Our home is a comfortable split level, end of row house comprising of five bedrooms, one with a large double bed, one children's bedroom with a full size single bed, the other with a single bed and a baby cot. The guest bedroom has a double bed and a single bed. The office provides high-speed internet connection. There is one main bathroom with bath and separate shower, and a guest bathroom with shower. We have a modern kitchen with adjoining dining room leading out to a small enclosed patio and garden which looks out onto the fields behind. The large living room is comfortable and equipped with english satellite tv and for those of you visiting in the colder month the log stove makes it very cosy. The front of the house has two (smaller) upper balconies, wonderful for enjoying the views over Switzerland, France and the German vineyards opposite. At ground level there is another large patio, great for taking in the sunset and evening BBQs. There is an extra room for storage and a separate room equipped with washing machine and dryer. We have a double garage providing plenty of space for the car and bikes and various kid's vehicles. We have two adult bikes, a small kid's bike and a bike trailer for two kids.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We love the location of our home, a cul-de-sac road slightly elevated with beautiful views over Basel in Switzerland, France and the wine growing area of Germany on the hillside opposite. With great public transport links and all amenities within walking or cycling distance we also benefit of beautiful green countryside and forests starting right at the back of our house. Many opportunities for beautiful walks into Switzerland which is only a 100 m away. The vicinity is also great for children, very little traffic, a playground nearby and a Swiss farm approx. 15 min walk away which our children especially enjoy. An adventure playground for older children is only a short cycle ride away.

Sat directly on the border between Switzerland, Germany and France the location is perfect for exploring the three very different countries. You can spend the morning shopping at the popular market in Lörrach for locally grown products, visiting one of the many museums in Basel www.basel.com or just having a coffee by the Rhine and then enjoying one of the good French restaurants just across the border in the evening www.tourisme-alsace.com Please also see the 'three country' website for many more ideas: www.tourismtrirhena.com
The Black Forest, with beautiful walking/hiking/mountainbiking etc. opportunities in the summer and downhill/cross-country skiing and sledging in winter is just at our doorstep, www.blackforest-tourism.com
Zürich, Luzern, Freiburg and Mulhouse are all approx.1h drive away. Swiss ski resorts 1.5h drive.
