About our home

The house (300m2) is built on a wall of an old castle from the 13th century. Everywhere in the house the old wall appears. The rest of the house is of the 18th century. The house is located directly behind the chapel of the old castel. Situated at the top of the village, there is a magnificient view over Lake Geneva and the Alps including Mont Blanc. The place is absolutely stunning and quiet.

The house has recently been tastefully renovated. The adjoining barn has been restored into a big living room/attic with wonderful old timbers dominating the character. There is a lot of space and light in the entire house. There are two fire places, but you can warm up as well in the sauna with a window from where you have a great view over the Alps. There is a big terrasse in front of the living room, and a smaller terasse at the other side of the house. The garden is very big and offers many opportunities for kids with a large big lawn. There is a climbing frame and a big trampolin.

In winter you can go skiing closeby (20 mins). This resort goes up to 1300m with smaller pistes, which is ideal with kids. You have breathtaking views on the Alps and on Lake de Joux from the pistes. For a bigger day of skiing and for better skier, you have to drive to different resorts in the Alps (45mins).

Ce demeure de charme du XVIII jouit d’une situation de tout premier ordre. Placée sur le flanc d’une colline à l’arrière de l’église du village, la maison est construite sur un des murs de l’ancien château et bénéficie d’une situation dominante sur les Alpes et le basin lémanique. L’endroit est très calme.

Datant du XVIIIème siècle, cette demeure a été entièrement rénovée avec beaucoup de goût et de soin. L’ancien rural a été restauré en un séjour orienté plein sud et la magnifique poutraison et le vieux mur du château mis en valeur. L’habitation comporte actuellement un seul logement de 10 pièces sur 3 niveaux d’une surface nette habitable de 300m2. L’intérieur est très lumineux et l’ensemble dégage une ambiance chaleureuse et une impression d’espace. Il y a deux places de feux, deux terasses et une sauna (avec fenetre et vue sur le Lac Leman). Le grand jardin offre beaucoup pour les enfants, avec un petit place de jeux et une grande pelouse. Il y a aussi un petit gym dans la maison.
