“We had a wonderful time in Claire`s and Michel`s home. Most of all we liked the architecture of the house and the closeness to nature. Very relaxing spot. Thank you.”
Michel's reviewsAs a host (5)
“Claire and Michel and their two lovely children stayed in our home in NY. They left our house nice and neat and neighbors raved about how quiet and considerate they were during their stay. Their new, contemporary home is filled with light in Chancy. It is conveniently located to Geneva center by car or public transportation. A three+ car ride makes, an overnight stay in Turino Italy easy. One and a half hours to Lyon, France by car and central to many towns along Lake Geneva and Lac Lehman makes its\' location ideal for discovering this beautiful area. Great for hiking, water lovers and city enthusiasts. It was a great house swap!”
“We spent 2 weeks in Chancy at Michel and Claire\'s house. The location is excellent, being right on the border between France and Switzertland. That means you can buy food and petrol in France, just a 10-minute drive away, but still get into Geneva easily on the bus/tram combination or by driving. The house is very spacious with a kitchen/dining room on the ground floor and a big sitting room and office space on the lower floor. Both have massive windows the full height and width of the room. Upstairs are three light and airy bedrooms. The house is very clean and bright and well equipped with most things you need (wifi, washer, dishwasher etc) all of which worked smoothly. The garden is a highlight, with a trampolene and room for the kids to play and it\'s also wonderful that you can just walk down to the sparkling stream at the bottom of the garden and discover insects, water snails, crayfish etc. The fast-flowing Rhone is only a 5-minute walk along the steam (though too dangerous to go into). Chancy has a couple of local restaurants and we were lucky enough to be there for Swiss National Day where the whole village gathers for a party and excellent fireworks. Nearby are beautiful towns like Annecy and Aix-les-Bains in France as well as Geneva itself. We took a lovely boat cruise to the historic village of Yvoire for lunch. We were left in charge of Azul, the famly Siamese, but apart from mewing piteously in the night when shut in her room, she was actually very friendly and no trouble. We would heartily recommend this house to any family wanting to experience Geneva/Savoy.”
“We exchanged with these very friendly family only for a long weekend but it nearly felt like a week, as the beautiful nature around their very unique house made us feel completely rested after only a short time. But also excursions to Geneva city and France were on our agenda and everything is only a little drive away. The contact before the exchange was so easy that we knew we could very much trust these people. And we were certainly not disappointed when we got back to our house. Thank you very much, Claire and Michel and maybe another day again :)”
“In july 2013 we swapped houses with this family from Chancy in Switzerland. It was a very good experience in every way. A very beautiful house in a lovely location right by the river. We give our best recommendations to this house and the family.”
