About our home

Our home was built in 1933, on a block of 750 m2 and is located in a very quiet neighbourhood but only a 10 minutes drive from downtown Geneva. We have recently renovated the entire inside of the house: new electric system, floor heating, new windows, kitchen and bathrooms. The total living space is 130 m2: Kitchen and living downstairs with a visitors toilet, 2 large and one small bedroom plus one shower room & toilet upstairs. A large deck opens from the kitchen for outside dining in summer, overlooking the private fenced back yard with a small view of the mountain Salève. There is a small office in the basement as well as a laundry room with washer and dryer and a garage.

More about us

  1. We are Linda and Patrick, a married couple with two children (14 & 11). We love the outdoors, enjoy rock-climbing, running and hiking. Patrick is also a keen paragliding pilot and kite-surfer. Our first home exchange was over christmas 2015 and we really enjoyed it.

    We are looking for a holiday swap as of Dec.26 this year to go south for 1 week.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We live in a small area of our village with no through traffic and cows grazing in the fields 100 m away. It is a 5 minute walk to the local school, bakery, and small grocer. The town Carouge, with heaps of small shops and restaurants, is a 20 min walk, the bus stop is 200m from the house. The French border is 2 km away. Salève (1200m) is our local mountain: easy access by car or cable car or by one of the many hiking tracks . Great for paragliding, rock climbing or cross country skiing. Lake Geneva is a 15 min drive away, Chamonix 1 h, Paris 3 h train (TGV) from Geneva main station. Over 10 ski stations within 1 h drive.

Geneva international airport is a 15 min drive away and has great Easy Jet offers to most European cities as well as direct connections to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and New York etc,
