France / Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes / Divonne-les-Bains, near Geneva
Newly constructed family home
Our home is newly constructed (2006). It's very comfortable, clean, and spacious, with a large kitchen and adjoining dining room with a table for 10 guests. We have a spectacular view on the mountains (Mont-Blanc and the Alps). We also have a large garden with a swimming pool and a spa.
Our house is not situated in Geneva itself, but ten minutes away, in the suburbs (Divonne-les-Bains, in France). The best way to come here is to fly to Geneva Cointrin, or to take the TGV to Geneva Cornavin. From there you can be home within 10 minutes. The house has 6 bedrooms plus 2 "hide-a-bed" In the master suite you have a dressing-room and a nice private bathroom and a fireplace. All the bedrooms have double beds. There is one living room with a piano. We have one study with computer, printer, fax. The kitchen is huge, with a table for breakfast and a counter with three bar stools. The central heating system controls the temperature of the floors. There is also a fireplace in the living room (with TV). In the basement we have a home cinema with a large choice of movies. We have a garage, but we use it for storage.
My house is situated in Divonne-les-Bains (France), in the suburbs of Geneva (Switzerland). Divonne is a famous spa. You can find nice restaurants, with French and foreign cuisines, cafes, and a casino. We are 20 minutes from Lausanne, and 60 minutes from Chamonix. Geneva is very close (10 minutes), and you can find a lot of activities.
You can ski just 15 minutes away, in the skiing resorts in the Jura Mountains.
My name is Stephan, and my wife's is Lucy. We are Canadians living in the area of Geneva since 2001 with our 3 kids (1 boy and 2 girls). My son Samuel is now studying in Canada, and will be be there for the Christmas holidays. We will be 5 travelling for this home exchange. We are working together (my wife and I) in the real estate business.
Our company imports to Switzerland wood-frame houses that we resell in kits to home builders and individuals. It's the first time that we use this kind of home exchange service, and we don't know if this is going to be fine, but we have found the idea very interesting.
