About our home

We offer a fresh, renovated, luminous apartment at the third floor of a building on one of the rare pedestrian streets of Geneva. It has 3 bedrooms (1 king size bed-wedding gift from India, 1 child bed, 1 futon in the guest room and the living room can accommodate up to 3 supplementary beds). A living, dining room nicely furnished with a wooden Indian table and a leather couch complemented by bargain hunted furniture. It opens on a balcony with a small wooden table and 2 chairs. We can see the lake that is less than 100 meters away. Our kitchen is well equipped and has all appliances: oven, microwave, fridge, kitchen-aid ... There are 2 bathrooms with WC. Our neighbours are very nice and quite international. Many languages are spoken: from Japanese to Brazilian and of course French and English.
There are many activities organized by the kids club downstairs our place. The Pedestian street is usually very lively, mainly in the summer, where the kids of the neighborhood play together. The lake shore is also a very nice play ground.
We have lots of children books and DVDs in French, Arabic and English. Children toys as well.

Our home is very central. 10 minutes walk from the train station (to Paris, Lyon; Lausanne, and many other swiss and French potential excursions), 5 minutes walk from the bus station (daily buses to the mountains the Jura and Alps - The closest is 45 minutes bus ride and is called Col de la Faucille - ski in the winter or hiking in the summer), 5 minutes walk to the harbour with boats going to Ivoire (must see medieval French city or Lausanne). it is also 20 to 30 minutes door to door from the Geneva airport using the train.
Saleve mountain is at 30 mn bus ride. cross-country Skiing; hiking, hang gliding and para gliding. We are also less than 100 meter from the lake with all the water related activities: sun bathing; to sailing (there are boat renting possibilities). There is a special beach for children (we spend most of our summers there) with changing cabins, a very nice restaurant, http://www.bains-des-paquis.ch/. In the winter they have one of Geneva's best cheese fondue.
Our area is where all major shopping facilities, restaurants, bars, theatres, parcs, sights are within either walking distance or few minutes by public transport or bikes (we have 2 adult bikes that you can use - otherwise renting facilities in a walking distance).
Geneva and surroundings are worth discovering and very easy to reach from our home.
