About our home

Our lovely home is the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday in beautiful Switzerland.

We are right in the middle of a nature's paradise (but only 3min from the city of Morges), living on a small family farm cultivating mainly apples and grapes on a small scale. Step out the front door and right into the forest walk along the river and within a few steps you're on the natural beach of lake Geneva admiring one of the most stunning sceneries Switzerland has to offer. Have a rest in our cosy living room in front of the fireplaceor barbecue on our sunny terrace, unless you prefer to relax in our tiny garden right beside the forest and a little river. And If you feel like getting in shape, a fully equipped functional outdoor training studio is at your disposition and the natural running track through the forest with different exercise stations is just in front of your door.

Our 3-bedroom apartment (although you'll feel like in a house) is ideally situated to explore one of the most stunning regions of Switzerland, You are 30min from Geneva Airport, 10min from Lausanne Olympic City, 20min from the Unesco Heritage Region 'Chablais' and just 40min from the snowy mountains. Go for a hike in the mountains and have a dip in the lake when you come back. You can head up to Glacier3000 within an hour and benefit from a barbecue on the lake the same day. Any major city is easily reachable by train which runs 3-4x an hour. We would be happy to provide you with any information you need to have a great trip in Switzerland, there is so much do see and do in our region. Welcome !
