Our main family home in conveniently situated on the edge of the bustling town of Nyon (10 mins walk into the heart of town. In another direction a 10 mins walk to Lake Geneva, and 10 minutes to the main Nyon train station).
Our large detached house is on a quiet road and we have a river and a forest at the bottom of our garden. On the other side of the forest there is a farm you can buy fresh milk, eggs, meat, veg, jam etc.
We renovated the house ourselves. It is open plan with large windows. There are three main bedrooms and a study/spare room. We have one bathroom and a separate shower room. There is a separate pantry and laundry room. We have lots of books, toys and board games..
The garden is large with three separate dining /entertaining areas. Including a pergola by the river. We also have a large springfree trampoline, paddling pool, jacuzzi and badminton net. We have a herb garden and have recently ventured into growing some veg during the lockdown.
During the summer there are lots of activities on the lake, relaxing on the beach, sailing, paddleboarding, swimming etc. There are various music and film festivals, and plenty of surrounding vineyards to visit. There are lots of great walking trails and cycling routes too. The spa in Leukerbaad is also worth mentioning. In winter there are many ski options a short drive or train away.
Nearby towns include; Geneva, Lausanne, Divonne, (20-30 mins) Gruyerre and Annecy (90 mins) and Chamonix is not so far. Evian and Thonnon can easily be accessed from driving around the lake, or hopping on a boat.
