General overview

Located on the French side of Lake Leman (also called Lake Geneva), our ground-floor apartment was built with an entire wall of lake-facing sliding-glass doors to take advantage of the ever-changing, panoramic view of the lake across from the Swiss city of Nyon.

The space

The master bedroom overlooks the lake and guest bedroom opens on to the side of the apartment. Both have ensuite bathrooms and comfortable queen beds. The third bedroom (used as an office) has an ensuite bathroom with a bathtub. It can be used for extra sleeping and we have a twin-size inflatable mattress and a portable crib. Our kitchen is well-equipped (we love to cook and have all the supplies). We also have a Weber gas grill on the wrap-around terrace and an outdoor dining table for warmer months.

Guest access

No stairs -- ground floor access.

Notes

Prospective guests need to be aware that we have a cat that needs feeding during your stay. We will happily reciprocate at your home. This is an important consideration for exchangers with allergies to cats. We can arrange for care during your stay if you take side trips!

Neighbourhood

Lakeside, we are in between Geneva and Evian les Bains (less than a half-hour's drive to either), and a 10-minute drive to the charming medieval walking cities of Yvoire and Nernier. A quick car or bike ride will take you to a magical castle with hiking paths that leads to a hidden beach rimmed by stunning mountains. Annecy, Mont Blanc (the tallest peak in Europe), and the surrounding French Alps are one hour away. You also can reach northern Italy via tunnel in Chamonix in one hour (92 km away). Geneva International Airport is only 20 minutes away and there is easy access to the TGV, France's high-speed train. We live in a charming small village, nestled between two swimming beaches each a half-mile away, and there are numerous places to swim, kayak, paddle, or boat nearby, as well as passenger boats that take you around and across the lake to Switzerland. Our apartment opens to a front lawn and unobstructed view of the lake.

Getting around

You can walk to the village and find all the amenities you need (market, bakery, butcher shop), or drive 15 minutes to large supermarkets and all types of shopping. Possible car to use by prior arrangement.

Member description
Gerard and I are a young-at-heart French-American couple with grown children who recently moved to our dream location on the French side of Lake Leman, about 18 km from Geneva. Gerard is a retired international attorney who spent most of his career in Paris, and I'm a freelance writer/PR and marketing specialist. I've lived many places in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Belize, but my heart is now in France. We love to travel and explore new places. Between us we have eight grown children living in Paris, Strasbourg, Brussels, London, and Los Angeles.
