Newly constructed family home

Our 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.

More about this property

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.

More about us

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.
