Separate areas for people to relax in and a den for the kids. Walking distance to Brevent chair lift. On a hill so difficult to walk into town but not impossible. Kitchen very well kitted out.

Everything you might reasonably need is provided and the apartment is clean, spacious, comfortable and centrally located near the station and wide choice of supermarkets and local shops. Jonas is caring and friendly and an excellent host. Excellent in every respect!

The location was perfect for us as we rented a car for our travels around Geneva. It was also only about 20 minutes away from the airport - very convenient. The shopping mall nearby was very convenient - it had a grocery store as well as a couple restaurants. The cottage was very neat and clean and well furnished. The big kitchen and dining table was perfect for our group of 7 (and could hold more). The entire place had a very modern and updated feel. The surroundings of the cottage were very well maintained and absolutely gorgeous. There was also a play area for children (although our group did not need it as we had no children with us). I would definitely recommend this cottage to others for an excellent place to stay near Geneva. And we would stay here again if we ever get the chance.
