We love our house! It's only 2 years old, airy with lots of light and a terrace/garden, in a quiet, charming Swiss village. The verdant Swiss countryside is at our back and splendid Lake Geneva and the French Alps are in front of us.
Our favorite aspects are the spacious kitchen, the upstairs master bedroom with its vaulted wood ceiling and stunning view of the lake, the terrace in the summer and the fireplace in the winter. Oh, and the "play room" in the basement where the kids can spend noisy hours at play while we sip a glass of wine in relative peace on the ground floor. :) Our house is on a private cul-de-sac so there is virtually no traffic--only the neighbors.
WHERE ARE WE?
By car, we are just 45 minutes from Geneva, 20 minutes from Lausanne, and 10 minutes from Morges. We are a 10-minute walk to the train station, from which you can get to just about anywhere in the region. Swiss trains are a dream!
We are a 5-minute walk from a playground, bakery, and small village grocery store.
