About our home

We live in a 90 m2 top floor apartment in Carouge (attached to Geneva/Switzerland), a charming old city well known for its restaurants, bars, boutiques and 18th century architecture. Our apartment is a 5 minute walk from downtown. Situated on a hill it has nice views from two sunny terraces. The apartment can comfortably accommodate up to four people. We also have an urban garden (two minute walk) where you can pick your vegetables for free.

Geneva is a less than one hour drive to Chamonix – Mont-Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe, covered in snow all year round. The Swiss Alps are not far, 1 to 1.5 hour drive. The Geneva region has many leisure activities thanks to the Geneva Lake, Annecy lake and rivers. Nautic sports are at your fingertips. During summertime (July) there are a lot of music festivals, like the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival (45 minute drive from Geneva) and the Nyon Paleo Festival (15 minute drive). Whatever you like, we can help you to organize your stay. Our neighbors are friendly and helpful.

More about us

  1. We are a family of 3. Cathy (53) is a journalist, Geneviève (48) is an instructional designer and our son Sacha is an enthusiastic 12-year-old boy. We all love traveling and focusing on human exchanges. We like the idea of exchanging houses for a while because it creates opportunities to make links around the world.

    We speak french, english and spanish fluently. We remember enough german and italian from school to get by.

    We would appreciate it if our cat Poppy could stay in the apartment during the exchange. She’s very friendly.
